We’ve been on a cheek stain kick from the moment theBalm’s Stainiac landed on our desks. Not only does this smooth gel make it easy to brighten lips and cheeks, but it comes in three amazingly flattering shades: Prom Queen, Homecoming Queen, and Beauty Queen. We put the tints to the test on three of our very own staffers and were happy to find that the shades looked lovely on each of them.
One of our newest team members, Sarah, chose theBalm Stainiac in Prom Queen. The deep strawberry pink complemented her medium-tan complexion and created (we think) modelesque cheekbones.
Our sweepstakes superstar, Crystal, opted for Homecoming Queen, a dewy peach that added a sheen to her lips and a glow to her cheeks. It’s an easy way to test out the tangerine makeup trend and warmed up her light-medium coloring.
Ops Manager and in-house Twitter fanatic Bianca invented her own shade by combining all three colors on her lips, then gently applying Beauty Queen to her cheeks for a rosy flush. The result was punchy and fun—ideal for her adventurous style.
