You wouldn’t know it from the state of our makeup drawer, but we’re actually beauty minimalists. Our motto: Why use two products when you can get the same effect with one? This two-in-one lip and cheek stain gives us a natural, understated flush and helps us get out the door faster. The gel formula looks dark in the tube but delivers a sheer tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.
Sephora stopped carrying this brand a while back, and I started testing other lip stains. What a great surprise to find this gem in my Birchbox! The stain is non-sticky and lasts a good while -- I've only used it on my lips but know it can work as a cheek blush as well.4
I really like this lip stain a lot. It lasts pretty long. I use it on my lips and cheeks.5
I like these types of stains because they are more natural looking than powders. This is a good product.4
Great color without the dry feeling lipstick sometimes gives. This is the first stain I've ever used and I love it.5
The consistency was nice, and it was easy to apply. I thought the color was flattering as well. However, I was hoping it would have been more long lasting. It seems like an hour later, it had already worn away3
I loved the texture and consistency of the Balm's Staniac. It was creamy and lasted quite some time. The scent was also quite nice. However, I would not buy the shade that was on my box. It was incredibly bold. More like something I'd wear to a holiday party or night on the town. I prefer more muted shades. If K could try a lighter color I might buy a full size product. :)4
This has a great tint for lips but makes my lips feel dry and does not have a glossy finish that I prefer.3
I used this as a cheek stain, and I think that it would probably work better as a lip stain. The consistency and texture were more like that of a typical lip stain - unfortunately, I tend to be a clear gloss kind of girl. Color is probably excellent on the lips, but didn't show up or build well on my cheeks.4
It looks amazing on the cheeks. So natural and lasts all day. I did not like it on my lips at all though. Very dry!5
I absolutely love this product! Gives an effortless flush of color to cheeks and lips. The color is natural but buildable5
