The Balm Stainiac in Beauty Queen – Swatches and Review

I received a sample of The Balm Stainiac Hint of Tint in Beauty Queen (berry pink) last summer with an online order and I finally tried it. I am in love! This unique water based formula gives you lots of time to blend and the results are an amazing healthy flush of colour to your lips and cheeks. It lasted all day on my cheeks and a really long time on my lips. Even better is the fact it’s totally affordable. I think it retails for $17 US and $18 CAD. I will definitely be picking up a full sized version of this product and check out the other available colours (Homecoming Queen – soft peach and Prom Queen – light rosy pink).

Stainiac hint of tint works with all skin tones. Dab just a touch on your cheeks or layer to pop the color. Fear not those dreaded streaks that most tints leave behind – Stainiac’s water-based formula is designed to give you more time before the stain sets.

Applied on lips and cheeks:

    I have never tried this because I was afraid it would be too hard to blend! Thanks for the review!

    At first I didn’t think it was going to work well. It seemed streaky. But you have enough time to continue blending and building until it’s even and as intense as you want.

    I’ve tried stains and they seem touch and go. It looks great on you though.

    That looks so lovely – I am so obsessed with lip stains (as you probably know!). Have you ever tried the Beaute stains? I’d be interested to see how they compare; they look quite similar…

    The color has been applied very beautifully to create a very nice and youthful yet casual look with the makeup…makeup is an art to be learnt and applied appropriately.

    Gorgeous application. How does it work on chapped lips or dry skin? I’d be scared it would settle into lines.

    I don’t like this product at all for lips. Alberta is very dry and my lips chap easily without heavy duty lip product. But as a cheek stain, its heaven!!!!
