Wet n Wild Balm Stain review: the best jumbo lip pencils!
Let’s start off with the formula:
It’s delightful. It’s pigmented and creamy without being too heavy or streaky. These are both opaque cream finishes with a gloss. It’s like wearing a lip gloss without my hair getting stuck in it and being too sticky.
Also, this does stain. Especially with these brighter shades, I can blot my lips after application if I just want a stain or I’m not feeling gloss that day.
So the staying power is kind of meh:
I mean, it’s a balm stain. The gloss doesn’t last forever and it doesn’t claim to. But, it definitely stains my lips after the gloss wears off.
It’s not drying but not moisturizing:
These are supposed to be moisturizing gloss balms and honestly, these aren’t going to act like a Nivea lip balm or anything. But, they don’t dry my lips out either.
Overall these get a big thumbs up from me. My lips are naturally quite pigmented so it’s difficult for me to find products that have complete coverage-so for $2, these are definitely a good buy!
