I`m sure many of you probably already heard about these. I recently got my hands on these new Revlon Balm Stains a couple weeks ago and have been enjoying them ever since. I decided to go with the lighter shades because they tend to look more natural.
I like the packaging. It`s shaped like a chubby crayon. I`m quite pleased of the overall look. It`s really nice for being a drugstore product.
No sharpening is needed since the product is retractable with a few twists.
The color of the tube looks exactly like the lip color.
On the left I have Darling, which is a blue base sheer pink with a slight purple undertone to it.
On the right I have Charm, which is a sheer peachy nude color. When I swatched it, I was worried that I might not be able to make it work since it seems pretty light. However, surprisingly, it turned out quite nice on me. For some odd reason, it has a pinkish tint to it once it`s on my lips.
Since this is supposely a lip balm/stain, the colors were on the sheer side.
The pigmentation isn`t that intense considering that these two colors are light but I`m actually fine with that because I like how natural they look, especially after the glossiness of the balm wears off.
They feel very comfortable and somewhat moisturising upon application. I love the minty scent it has. It`s very refreshing.
The gloss usually wears off within 2 hours but the stains last up to 6 hours on me. That`s not bad for light colors. I would assume that the darker shades would last even longer.
You may experience some dryness after a few hours. That may be the only drawback but that`s quite common with lip balms anyways.
If you are like me and always forget or are too busy to touch up your lips, you will be pleased at how long-wearing the stain last. I really love how comfortable and light it feels upon application though I wished that feeling lasted a bit longer. Another thing I really like about these two colors is that they look very natural on me. These truly do what they were meant to do. It`s definitely one of the best lip stains I`ve tried.
My rating: 9/10.
What you given these a whirl yet? If so, which other shade would you recommend?
