CLAIM TO FAME: A highly-moisturizing lip stain crayon

FAST FACTS: Smooth, balm-like texture with buildable color; enriched with acai palm oil to condition lips; formulated with a protective shield for lips to prevent color feathering; imparts a minty, cooling sensation

PERFECT FOR: Dry, chapped, and pale lips

“Pinky promise is a nice natural pink, it is a little pinker than my natural lips and the colour doesn’t look like I have lipstick on, which I like. Red-dy or Not is a nice medium matte red, and I really like this one because it’s not too… Red. It’s more ‘vintage glam’ than ‘look at my lips they’re fire engine RED!’ They go on nice and smooth but they take a little time to dry, and are prone to smudging when it’s still wet…The colour does fade, but it was still going pretty strong after eating, drinking, and sleeping (aka smooshing my face into the pillow)…These are definitely on my favourites list!”

“I LOVE these!!…The stain lasts on me from after breakfast to lunch, so I only have to re-apply after lunch and after dinner if going out. Love the moisturizing it does for my lips and the fact its crayon style and so easy to apply, no mirror needed = great for on the go.”

“I can’t speak of any dryness issue for this product. I found it comfortable to wear, easy to apply, smooth, and has staining power. Its very cheap, and doesn’t apply patchy. So anyone looking for a lipstain/lip base or something that will give you some color when your lipsticks wears off, try this. Of course, you can always wear these on its own too : ) For what I use these for, it’s one of the best cheap balm stains out there.”

Least hassle, slick and smooth!

Being a matte lippie and lip stain type of girl, this was my first, brave move to get something so luscious and rich. It was a whole new world. The pigment is awesome. It stays on even if the wind whips my hair onto my lips. The application is super non-hassle, like I don't even need a mirror! Rico Mauve is my all time fave!

Smooth application

I love how this balmstain gives a smooth application plus its pigmentation is good, not questionable at all. I purchased red-dy or not and rico mauve, and i wasn't disappointed,red-dy or not gives you that vintage romantic look (honestly i actually feel like rachel mcadams from the notebook lol) while rico mauve is probably the best lip color you can pair with those sexy smokey eyes, i have fair skin btw. So yah thumbs up for this product for being good and affordable at the same time!

I'm in love with the shade Caffeine Fix. It's a gorgeous neutral kind of brownish shade (on me) that I can use almost everyday. This product glides on smoothly and lasts pretty much all day, as long as I drink from a straw and eat carefully. Great pigmention, great price and overall a great product. Not a fan of the packaging, though.

smooth on the lips!

I got the truffle in paradise, I thoought it would give a dark brownish color instead it was dark red to maroon color. It suits me well and it's smooth on the lips. doesn't dry the lips and the color stays for the whole day. I would probably try other colors next time. and it's not expensive too.

Great product!

I only have this is See if I Carrot (I had one other, but I dropped it in my car and it melted before I could try it, oops), but I'm probably going to eventually buy a few more. I was looking for a subtle orange-y shade for summer and this one worked out really great. It isn't too bright or super orange, but it isn't too coral-y like some "orange" lip colors I've tried.

I like that it's a stain/balm combo,'s a little weird. It does feel a nice on my lips, but my lips get dry really easily, so I still have to use a separate balm. As for the staining, it works, but isn't perfect. It's kind of a trade-off because, while it lasts longer than most lipsticks, glosses, or tinted balms that I've tried, it doesn't last as long as the other stains I've used. But, it doesn't dry my lips out like other stains have. There's also an issue with some transfer, at least until the excess product wears off. But, if I blot away the excess, the color payoff is almost non-existent.


-super cheap
-ok shade range
-somewhat moisturizing
-decent wear time

-transfers until some of it wears off
-color payoff is just "meh" if I blot off the extra

I think this might work better with a light application, blotting, and then top it with a gloss or lipstick in a similar shade so as the gloss/lipstick wears off, you don't totally lose all the color. I haven't tested that, though, because I don't have another orange shade right now. If I get this in another shade that sort of matches one of my lipsticks or glosses, I'll test it out and update this review.

Stain it all!

I got two shades for this product. Rico and stiff pink. Both pigmentations are good. They make your lips lively and the color stays all day. Smooth to apply and does not dry my lips. The packaging is cute too that it reminds me of crayola back when i was still a kid. Thumbs up for being affordable and easy to wear!

Thumbs Up!

I'm into matte but when I got Rico Mauve as a gift, I'm glad I was compelled to try it because it's now one of my go-to when I'm in a rush or when I only have a small bag. It's really moisturizing so I usually leave my lipbalm and do with just this on some days. The color is buildable so I can adjust until it suits the look I'm going for. Bonus: It stains so I sometimes dab some of the shine off without totally going colorless.

A happy in-between balm and lipstick

I don't usually use lipstick, but was looking for an upgrade in color from my usual tinted lip balms. Saw that the Rico Mauve was highly recommended and when i saw "minty" in the description I went ahead and bought it! The color is great, the minty-ness is subtle, and best of all, my lips stay nice and smooth and natural looking. The smell of the product did turn me off a bit, but it's only an issue during application and not during wear. Will buy Caffeine Fix next :)

Rico Mauve: Off duty natural look!

I was looking for an alternative for my everyday lipstick that looks natural and effortless, I think I have found the best candidate. The pigment is just right and it stays in place even when the moisturizing properties receded overtime. It's a breather from my go-to lippies which are mostly matte and flat. I like how it looked on my lips paired with plain natural face powder and tamed brows-- off duty but always pretty!

Look fresh and simple!

Got the shade "coral of the story" excellent for everyday used with its minty touch once applied and hassle free application since it glides smoothly on your lips, it is also pigmented just like a lipstick but with the benefit of a balm. Will definitely order next time to offer it to my workmates since it is also affordable.

Satisfying balm tint!

I love the soft glide on my lips, very pigmented with good effect of balm. I have this in the shade Red-dy or not and it looks amazing. It's like you put a pretty lipgloss on your favorite red lipstick. Definitely going to buy the other shades. Very affordable and lovely product!

must have for your kikay kit

i tend to have chappy lips and gear away from colored balms. but this one is a good find - not only does it moisturize my lips, the color payoff is good as well. i use rico mauve and now i understand why it's always out of stock. it leaves a nice color in your lips which you can layer with lipstick afterwards (tip - use wet& wild 'in the flesh'). now i understand the meaning of MLBB!!

Rico mauve is love

This is my go to MLBB on lazy days when I just want to look effortless or natural. The cooling sensation it leaves in the lips is what really sold me on this, but the color of Rico Mauve is also so close to my actual lip color that I had to get it. It feels just like a moisturizing lip balm, and after eating and a few hours it fades into a stain that looks a bit brighter than the initial color.

Got what I wanted and MORE!

I bought this because I wanted a lip product that doesn't dry my lips but also has a color. This was the perfect lip stain for what I wanted. It lasted most of the day, without retouches, and the color (Rico Mauve - which is beautiful) was clearly seen on my lips (which is a feat in its self since I have pigmented lips). It also has a cool feel to the lips, which disturbed me at first but I have come to really like since it was very refreshing.

it came off as a little bit shiny when i first saw the lippie. But i tried it and liked it a lot! It didn't dry my lips which was a good factor for me when it comes to buying lippies. But the best part was I got a compliment from wearing it!

balm stain FTW

I have suffered a lot from lipsticks that just dries out my lips and I wanted to switch it up and so I started using this and I love that it stains my lips with color but also keeps it moisturized so I don't have to constantly apply lip balm because its 2 in 1.

For lipstick lovers

This lipsticks is perfect for lippie lovers who just cant get enough of having it all! I love how once you apply the product that it looks good on me. Its color intensity changes in a way that you achieve the specific color tone that you like. Not loke other brands that completely changea its tone color once you coat more layers. Plus its super affordable! :)

Rico Mauve - my MLBB

Rico Mauve is an MLBB color for me, I'm so glad I found it and purchased it. It's non-drying and gives a nice color pay-off. The shade is universally flattering as a friend of mine who is morena also has this color and it looks great on both of us. It's very easy to use and the color is just very pretty and flattering

Better than most lipsticks!

This is my favorite lip balm so far. I love that it's so pigmented yet glides smoothly on my lips. I also like the crayon-like shape which aids in precise application and another thing to brag about this little baby is that it leaves a menthol feel after application. It lasts long (up to 8 hours at most) and doesn't stain the glass that much after drinking so it's better than most lipsticks. I bought the rico muave shade.

Great value for money!

I had previously been using Stila's Stay All-Day Liquid Lipstick and although I loved it's staying power, I didn't like how it dried out my lips. This is why I love MegaSlicks Balm Stain - it has mega staying power such that when I go to sleep I still have a pinkish tinge to my lips. It is just a fraction of the price of Stila and it also does not dry out my lips. Really great value. Glad I discovered this through BeautyMNL
