The Balm Staniac

I've always been a fan of cream and gel blushes because they're so easy to use. Originally I bought Staniac to use as a lip tint, but I also love it as a sheer cheek tint. I have Beauty Queen which is the colour shown above. In the tube it looks really dark, but it goes on very sheerly and looks like a pretty flush of colour.

Here's what theBalm says: This hint of tint works with all skin tones. Dab just a touch on your cheeks or layer to make the colour pop. 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. Can be used on cheeks or lips.

I have to agree with their claims. It is a light, sheer colour that's easily buildable. It doesn't set too fast so is easy to blend. When I use it as a cheek stain it lasts all day, as a lip stain it lasts half a day.

Ingredients: water, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, actylates/c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, triethanolamine, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, propylene glycol, camelia oleifera (tea) extract, methylparaben, potassium sorbate, sodium dehydroacetate, flavor, may contain: red 33 cl 17200, blue 1 cl 42090, Green 3 cl 42053, yellow 5 cl 19140, red 22 cl 45380, red 27 cl 45410:1, yellow 10 cl 47005, green 5 cl 61570.
