Hey there beauties,

Hope you all are doing great. So as requested by many of you, here I am with the review of Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain in shade "A Stiff Pink". I bought this few weeks ago through Facebook Page Infinity. Well no more talking let's just get to the review and see what I have to say about it.

Okay so if you are a regular reader of my blog, you would be knowing how much I love lip crayons. I find these twist-able kinda crayons or balm stains much convenient to use. This balm stain is one of those chubby crayon pencils too. What I like about it's packaging is the lid, which closes tightly. You can hear a click sound upon closing the lid which makes it safer to keep in bag and purse.

Now coming to the finish and formula of this balm stain. It applies smoothly on the lips and moisturizes and hydrate the lips well. When first applied, you will slightly feel a tingling sensation on the lips (probably due to any of kind of the ingredients inside). I also feel that this balm stain makes my lips appear fuller. The finish is kinda glossy in the start which turns to a semi-matte finish after sometime and by the end to a completely matte finish. This balm stain keeps the lip hydrated for few hours only and after that it leaves a stain. Even the stain doesn't make the lips feel dry (a bit dry though). I recently had an allergic reaction to one lip product. Therefore, my lips were quite chapped and dried out when I tried this stain. But luckily, it didn't enhance any dryness on the lips. It doesn't settle into fine lines or cracks either. Hydrates and nourishes the lips for a couple of hours. So overall, am in love with the formula.

This particular shade "A stiff pink" is a gorgeous bright pink shade. What I noticed about this balm stain is that it changes color. When applied freshly, its a gorgeous pink shade with blue undertones. After a while the bright blue toned pink becomes much darker fuchsia pink and then after few hours, it starts fading slowly. It is very pigmented. The coverage is medium but easily buildable. One swipe on lips provide medium coverage and another swipe results in full coverage. The color is so soooo bright. I wasn't expecting it to be that bright, but I love it. It's one of those shades that would suit almost any skin tone.

Am pretty impressed with the staying powder of this balm stain. It lasts on my lips for about 4-5 hours (with full meal and proper eating). After that it leaves a kind of stain on lips which stays for some extra couple of hours. When I was testing it, I applied it in morning and splashed my face with water 2-3 times during the day, had lunch, and still I could see the bright color (slightly faded) on my lips till eve. After that it started fading, and left a light stain which stayed till night. So the staying power is impressive. What I don't like about this balm is that it fades unevenly. So, the stain looks awkward with uneven patches of colors on your lips by the end of the day.

Okay now here are the swatches of this lovely shade. It looks much brighter in person and is looking less brighter in pictures somehow. The first lip swatch shows how it looks when freshly applied on lips and the last picture shows the faded stain it leaves after few hours.

Let me tell once again, for some reason the color is appearing less brighter in pictures. But actually it appears as a much much brighter and darker fuchsia pink shade on lips. Even the stain looks so bright and appears as a reddish pink stain. Overall, am impressed with this balm stain and love using it these days. Even my Mom loves it and is impressed with its staying power and great color payoff. Am surely gonna get more shades soon. At the end, we have the quick roundup summary.
