I was in Walgreens the other day and realised I had to face an ever more evident truth. Honestly, I have a growing addiction to the various balm stains out there, and it seems that almost every brand has their own version. I was kind of ridiculously excited to see Wet n Wild come out with a balm stain, mostly because they make awesome lip products and sell them for an insanely affordable price. The Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stains are no different, garnering lots of rave reviews at just $2.99 a pop.
From the Walgreens website:
Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Color
Size/Count 0.1 oz.
- Glides on smoothly
- Enriched with acai palm oil
- Prevents feathering
Now you can amp up your lips with one stick for a kissable pout in no time. To keep your pucker-perfect, these all new lip balm stains glide on smoothly while conditioning the lips. Enriched with Acai Palm Oil, this amazing formula forms a protective shield on the lips to prevent feathering. Complete with six great shades and continuous moisture, the formula leaves the lips with a unique minty, cooling sensation. No matter how long the kiss, this balm will last and last.
There are 6 different shades, but the one that stood out to me the most was A Stiff Pink. Goodness knows I don't have enough pink lip products.... =_=;;

I really love this shade on my skin tone, although it is a cool toned pink it is bright and punchy enough so that it doesn't wash me out at all. The Balm Stain wore for about 3 hours before I wiped it off... well, I say wiped it off but it left a bright pink stain that wasn't easily removed. Awesome if you're looking for a true stain that will last all day! I'm not sure how the softer shades would be, but because this one is so pigmented it left a long-lasting, even stain.
I'm very happy with my purchase and will definitely be snapping up a few more of these. My Balm Stain obsession is going to be fed like crazy! Best of all, it won't hurt the pocketbook too much :)
Update: after removing my makeup and sleeping, I still have a pink stain on my lips and arm where I swatched!
