My Experience with the Balm Stainiac Lip and Cheek Stain
I chose this product as a beauty subscription product of my choice. I was very eager to try this product.Can you guess why?? Well because what is better for a girl than to get a single product; for two of her important facial features, in one! Yes, that’s what attracted me towards it :). It came in such a cute and handy- carry everywhere kind of packing.
First I tried this on my lips. I got a subtle tint on my lips in 2 applications. As the product is aloe-Vera based, when it dries, it imparts softness to your lips. Next, I tried it on my cheeks. I was super excited about it. Alas! I hated the fact that it immediately sets at the point where I apply. Before I can even spread it!! Also, if you want to darken the stain, the result is uneven patchy tint.
I would rather go for a cream based or powder based blush. You can darken or lighten them according to your wish without getting a patchy look. So this product is a total disappointment as a cheek stain.
- Good color
- Good product for lips
- Moistens lips
- Only available online
- Patchy look on cheeks
- Not worth the money
Would I repurchase and recommend?
Nope. It is not worth a cheek stain…why spending so much money, on a product that does not work well on both parameters? You can buy a much cheaper lip stain in India, with a better look!
Have any of you tried this the Balm Stain? What has your experience with gel blushes been?
