theBalm Stainiac

Stainic is a lip and cheek stain by theBalm.  I received a deluxe sample size in my birchbox a few months ago.  I have used this as both a stain for my cheeks and my lips.

If you are using this as a lip stain I would suggest is to make sure your lips a moisturized and are free of any dead skin.  The first time I used this product I had slightly dry lips and this did not look so hot clinging to the dry patches on my lips.  This is a light rose color which can be built up to a semi medium color.   My lips are natural pretty pigmented so I had to add 5 coats before I achieved my desired color. As a cheek stain I swiped to strips on my cheeks and blended with my fingers.  I did this twice to achieve the color you see below.

Overall I like this product and I would put it on my wishlist.  If someone wants to buy it for me, I will be happy, however it is not the type of product that I plan on purchasing myself.  It rates OK in my book, not bad or horrible but not overwhelmingly amazing either. In the picture below I am wearing it on my lips and my cheeks.
