It's been a long time I wanted red lip tint. Haven't had one before, and lucky me I got one from The Balm Indonesia. This is the best lip tint I've ever had and since I don't have many before. Check it out!
Stainiac “hint of tint” works with all skin tones. Dab just a touch on your Cheeks and Lips; layer to pop the color. Fear not those dreaded streaks most tints leave behind - Stainiac’s aloe-infused gel-based formula is designed to give you more time before the stain sets.
How to use
Dab this stain on your cheeks and blend with your fingers. Use the wand to apply to your lips. Layer to build color.
Sounds very promising, I like the idea that it gives more time before it sets rather than makes my lips look like bleeding which usually happens with quick drying tint. And because it gel based, it should be more moisturizing.
It comes in a carton box, usual packaging, but it's colorful like The Balm, as always. It's retro and pop art like western comic style. The stain itself is made from transparent plastic and silver cap. Not really a cute one but it's simple.
The wand is slanted like other lip tints, perfect shape for lips. But I still like using finger for the finishing touch because it's more natural that way.
The formula is amazing. It doesn't bleed or leaked into lip lines because it is aloe based gel which is more moisturizing and gives more time before it dries.
Stainiac has 3 colors: Homecoming Queen (Orange), Beauty Queen (Magenta/Pink) and Prom Queen (Red). This one is the best selling one. It looks red but the color is magenta pink. The color is buildable, we can layer it until the color we want.
It's quiet long lasting even after drinking and eating. Once it settled, it's a bit hard to be removed, so use make up remover to clean it properly. Good thing is, it doesn't leave my lips look like bleeding. To look best, I like to use lip balm on the top of it, juicy lips is mine!
On cheek, I like to apply 2 layers because 1 layer is still invisible for my cheek. It gives a flush and fresh look without too much color.
+ Gives more time to apply because it dries longer than other tint
+ Has 3 color choices
+ Long lasting
- Packaging is very common but not a big deal
- A bit pricey
It's a bit pricier than Asian lip tint, but I bet it worth the price because it's different. The formula is moist yet long lasting and settled nicely. Really recommended for those who just learn to use lip tint because it gives more time before it sets. Other than that, it's useful because it can also be used for cheek too. I always love 2 in 1 product.
