I talk about The Balm as a brand a lot. I do that about brands that I love, especially this one because I think more people need to know about their products. Recently I received the most exceptional PR drop from them. It contained eight of my favourite makeup product in the world, lipsticks!! Well lip stains to be more accurate. The Balm Jour Creamy Lip Stains have landed.
The Balm Jour are described as a lip stain but they’re so creamy I find it difficult to describe them this way. When I think of a product staining my lips, my mind instantly goes to a vision of dried out lips. That is not the case with these. The Balm Jour just feel so creamy. Not only when you apply them but for entire time they’re on your lips. Matte lipsticks really aren’t my thing so I’m very happy to see the return of glossier options.
There are eight different shades of The Balm Jour, each one named after different ways to say hello from around the world. Their unique Polymer Formula (that’s how the molecules bind together), allow them to start as a gloss, with the pigment of a lipstick. The texture is soft and creamy with the longevity of a lip stain. I cannot think of anything else you would need from a lip product!!
After testing them now for a number of weeks, I am supremely impressed with the quality. From the nude lip heaven of “Hola” to the knockout Fuschia pink of “Ciao” there’s a shade here for everyone. It’s impossible to pick a favourite here but at a push “Aloha” might just nudge it!!
