Makeup Monday: Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stains

Today's Makeup Monday features a product that I recently found at Walgreens.  Now, I don't know if this is a new product or just a new product to my Walgreens.  But, I've never seen these before.  I'm talking about the Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stains.

You've probably seen a ton of products along these same lines -- Clinique Chubby Sticks, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick, Cover Girl Lipperfection Gloss Balms, etc..... the list goes on.  Personally, I love the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains.  They come in a wide range of colors, they smell minty, and the color stays forever.

When these Jordana Balm Stains caught my eye a couple weeks ago, I knew I had to try them.  Why, do you ask?  Because they're $2.99.  Yeah, it was a no-brainer.  I wanted to see how they compare to the Revlon version, since those have been my fave since they were released.

I purchased two colors, Candied Coral and Sweet Pink.  Since coral and pink are the two lip colors I gravitate towards, they seemed like the perfect shades.

And here they are on my lips.

Y'all!  They are so pigmented.  They're very smooth and glide on like a lip balm.  I really, really like these!  They also stain your lips and stay all day.  In fact, I had to scrub off the swatches from my hand (see above).  I wore the Sweet Pink during a very, very hot day and I was pleased with its staying power.

While the glossiness wears off throughout the day, the color stays.  If you like your lips to be glossy, you might need to keep a clear or light shade of lip gloss with you and top off throughout the day.  As far as scent/flavor, they smell sweet and slightly fruity and they do not have any flavor.

I really don't think you can beat the price, staying power, and pigmentation of these balm stains!  I will definitely be going back to get a couple more shades.

Today, I'm linking up with Molly and Carly.
