Out of all the lip crayons I have purchased and tested out these are by far my favorite. I love the pigmentation and I can kick myself for only purchasing two. At the time I was more set on seeing what the rave was about the Wet n Wild Balm Stains. I love the pigmentation. I love the texture. They are not as slippery as the Wet n Wild Ones making them easier to build upon. The swatches really do the pigmentation no justice but here it is:
Out of the two my favorite is ‘Rock n Rouge.’ I can’t get over how great these feel on my lips and that it’s moisturizing but the texture does not seem slippery. There is a shine to these hence the name ‘Twist and Shine.’ Similar to that of the Wet n Wild’s, ‘Lady and the Vamp’ / ‘Red-dy Or Not,’ Jordana’s ‘Cranberry Crush’ is not as pigmented as I thought it would be, but I do think I could build it up more than ‘Lady and the Vamp.’ ‘Rock n Rouge’ is just the perfect red and you can easily build it up or keep it simple with one or two coats.
I definitely need to go back and collect all the colors. I’m in love with the pigmentation, the texture, and the price. I have yet to snag and try out Revlon’s Balm Stains, but once I do I’d be able to do a thorough review of which ones are necessities in a collection. These are winners and out of the ones I’ve tried, my fav balm stains so far.
Have you tried Jordana’s Twist and Shine Balm Stains? If so, what’s your fav?
