The Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain is Jordana's take on the popular lip crayon trend. The shade Tropical Frenzy (03) is a fairly bright fuchsia pink & Candied Coral (04) is an orange coral.
Tropical Frenzy and Candied Coral are pretty pigmented, especially if you build them up. They don't really have a smell, which I prefer over the minty smell that a lot of lip crayons have. These balm stains feel nice and light on the lips and give about 2 hours of wear before losing the gloss and turning into a stain. The only downside these products have is that they fade in the middle of your lips, leaving you with a thick lip liner look.
Both Tropical Frenzy and Candied Coral appear brighter and more vibrant in the sunlight than in the shade or indoors.
Other than the fading in the middle of the lips, I have nothing bad to say about these balm stains and I think that they are a great option for a lip crayon versus one that's more expensive like the Revlon Balm Stains.
