the Balm For Keeps WaterColor Lip Stains Review and Swatches

Much to my dismay I’m so not loving the Balm For Keeps WaterColor Lip Stains. I can’t tell you how excited I was about this upon first release. The Muse simply adores lip stains and these looked thrilling. They are a dual compact featuring two shades of powder lip color and a brush. Wet the brush, swirl in the powder, and create a long wearing lip stain! Sounds awesome right?

Rimmel Lip Bloomer Review: Why I Stay Away from Drugstore Brands!

Remember last week when I purchased a few of the Rimmel Spring Eyeliners? At the time I also purchased something called Lip Bloomer from Rimmel which is also part of one of their two Spring Collections.

Let me start off by saying I sincerely love lipstains with a passion. I stain my lips everyday! I stain my lips before lipstick, before gloss, etc….always without fail!

I do this because it makes my glosses pop and gives a beautiful, healthy dimension to my lips so when I seen Rimmel’s Lipbloom for $6 bucks I thought this indeed might be a nice little bargain!

I use a variety of different stains most of which are excellent however Lipbloom blows. It blows right out the…anyway….

This particular stain mimics an older release from Too Faced with it’s dual side packaging. Too faced had something similar a few seasons ago and it basically consists of a gloss on one end and a stain on the other. Nifty right? That’s about all it is as the nifty is where it ends and all goes down hill!

The idea of having a gloss on one side and a stain on the other is, for me, the height of simplicity for touch ups. Swipe a bit of stain on, top with gloss, and you’re good to go! I find that combing a stain and a gloss makes my lips really look amazingly sexy, healthy, and beautiful (I’m one of the three at the very least).

Well…I can’t achieve or create any look with Lip Bloomer. The stain slides right off my lips as soon as I attempt to apply it. Swipe it on and it drips right off. Pigmentation is zero. It’s like taking the juice from a watermelon or something and swiping it on your lips. Just like water with a bit of color that doesn’t stay put at all.

Sigh.

The gloss? You’d think maybe the gloss would redeem the fact that one side of the product sucks but no such luck the gloss is just as bad which equals out to a crap product all the way around. The gloss isn’t really sticky or tacky which is a plus but it’s also not even glossy in texture? It feels like…nothing? I mean it feels like you’re not even applying anything onto your lips. No shine, no glossy feel, nada, nothing, zip, zero.

Basically I’ve wasted $6 bucks on a product that does nothing. Yay me I won the drugstore lottery and now have a useless gloss and stain duo that does nothing w00t!

This, my dear dear girls, is why I avoid US drugstore brands!

Rimmel Lip Bloom……………

Total loser.

Boo!

Tried it?

Loving or Hating it?

Tell the Muse!
