I just needed to have this balm stain, I've been hearing so much about how great this product was from other beauty bloggers, and featuring it on my wishlist a couple times didn't help. I went grocery shopping yesterday and after begging my boyfriend to let me purchase a makeup product, I excitably skipped down to the makeup section, knowing this kissable balm stain was what I was looking for. After asking my boyfriend which color he preferred, I ended up getting Charm, a lovely soft nude pink.
I really liked it, although I wish it was a bit more pigmented but when paired with a light lipstick, I'm sure it would be the perfect combo. Its very creamy and moisturizing, it isn't sticky, which I was super happy about because, I was a bit worried it might be sticky and tacky. The smell surprised me, I thought it was scentless but it smelt like mint and I was sitting at my dinning room table sniffing it like a freak for 5 minutes. I find these very low maintenance and super portable and easy to use. The packaging was nice to, it's shaped like a jumbo pencil but you don't have to sharpen it to get more product, you just twist the bottom up like a chap stick and up it comes. It also didn't last forever like a stain, I had to reapply it after an hour or two.
Pros and Cons
Great lip product, very creamy and smooth, doesn't dry lips out and feels moisturizing. Although it doesn't last as long as a stain and isn't very pigmented, the smell and taste was a nice surprise. It's very low maintenance and portable.
Great lip product and I look forward to buying more shades
