As part of my beauty haul gift this month I bought this “Stainiac lip & cheek tint” of The Balm, I got the beauty queen shade and ordered it online at kicks.se that cost around 199 kr . I know that it’s has been out in the market for a years now and I also´know that there are tons of reviews about it you can find online, so I said to myself why not add my review as well LOL!. Anyway! If you know me well you know that I really like liquid blushon and I consider this a “must have” item that I buy over and over again when I run out.
I love using liquid blush more rather than powder blush (although I admit that I have a powder blush from MAC which I also love) but I always reach out for the liquid one 🤭. The reason why I like liquid blushon so much is that they stain your cheek in a little amount that gives you a pretty natural look. You also don’t need to touch it up so much because they last the whole day. (see picture below how much I love my Herbench pretty when pinched cheek and lip tint.)
TheBalm Stainiac comes in a lip gloss sort of packaging with a doe foot applicator with 8.5g amount of product on it. I feel the applicator is fine for using this as a lip stain (if you are a person who also like to use is as a lip tint). Just a disclaimer guys I don’t use is as a lip tint ever! only for a blush even if it say that you can use is as a lip tint too I would rather use lipstick instead ☺. I just don’t like the feeling of using it as a liptint and then putting it on to your cheek afterwards is a big No No for me (I just don’t want to deal with breakouts) but if you like to use different brush to apply it on your cheek and lips then go for it! 😚 use it according to your own preference.
