This is a nice natural color! You can add a lot it a little depending on how much you want. I like that I can put it on and then use Chapstick over it since most lip color is not moisturizing

My favorite lip stain

I first discovered theBalm Stainiac when I got a sample in my Birchbox. This is my all-time favorite lip stain and I’ve tried a lot! I’m a redhead so it’s hard to pick a lip color that won’t clash with my hair. This just enhances your natural skin tone to make it feel natural.

It’s a perfect red gel/stain.

I live in Hawaii and always have sun-kissed cheeks (face…lol)… Sometimes when I want a little pop of color, especially for evenings out, this is my go-to product. I don’t like cream or powder blush, so this gel is lightweight and perfect. I love that it’s dual purpose, as a stain for the lips too. Can’t rage enough about this, absolutely love it!!!

Not bad…expected more!

Not as good as expected. I agree with others that this is well worn as a blush…it doesn’t move if you put it there and blend it. But I tried to use this as a once-a-day application to my lips…nope. It’s a nice natural color (I’m fair skinned and like a very natural look) but…I find I have to apply it more than once to get it to a color that anyone would remotely notice. It does tingle a little when I put it on…but it’s not annoying enough for me to stop using it. I’ve been using it as a base for a lightly colored (rose) chap-stick (Burt’s Bees)…I probably wouldn’t spend this much again in the future. If the price point was about 1/2 I’d purchase it again. Not wholly disappointed, but expected more. :/

I love it, but I wear it under lip gloss.

Okay, I actually really like this stuff, but I don’t use it on its own. There’s definitely a learning curve with it. First of all, it has the consistency of water. So you put it on, and need to give it like 3 minutes or so to dry. It’s very matte once dry. After that, I then layer on lip gloss on top of it (I prefer Mary Kay, with the tube and wand). It stays on all day, even after eating or drinking, way more so than if I did the lip gloss alone. I can’t really comment on the product if worn by itself, because I don’t really like the matte look on my lips.

) I like the product because it allows time to blend

This is not the first time I’ve purchased this product (although it was the first time from this vendor.) I like the product because it allows time to blend, can be layered for more intensity, lasts through the day, and is very portable. I use it on both lips and cheeks, with gloss over it on lips. Perfect for travel. Works well on bare skin, but I usually wear a tinted moisturizer under it.
