Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain

Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain is a new product in stores now and it comes in eight shades.

It comes in a retractable twist-up fatty pencil. It applies with a glossy finish but then kind of tones down with more of a stained balm appearance after a minute. They have a slightly fruity scent but no taste that I noticed.

They are on the sheer balm-like side, although you do see color on your lips. And the nice thing is they don’t all look super exactly the same. A couple have just slight differences, but for the most part they are distinctive shades.

Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain Swatches
Nude Chic, Sweet Pink, Tropical Frenzy, Candied Coral, Honey Love, Cranberry Crush, Rock n Rouge, Terra Crave

Nude Chic is a light nude/tan.

Sweet Pink is a bright pink.

Tropical Frenzy is a very cool-toned bright pink.

Candied Coral is a medium coral.

Honey Love is a pink/tan.

Cranberry Crush is a red/pink.

Rock n Rouge is a cherry red.

Terra Curve is a light brown.

Overall: For me these didn’t feel super moisturizing but not all that dry either. They are kind of in-between. They last a couple hours which is standard for me. I like the brighter pink and coral shades the best since they show up more than the nude/tan/brown ones on me.

Availability: Walgreens.

Pricing: $2.99 for 0.095 oz.

Do you like these kind of balm stains or prefer something more saturated or glossy?
