This is an oddly specific post but I decided to do a comparison between the Daiso brand Detergent for Puff & Sponge and the Makeup Brush Cleaner products. I’ve used the detergent for a while – not just for puffs and sponges but for any makeup tools really, it works well and only costs $2.80 (well it costs $4 in Adelaide since we don’t have a Daiso sadly). I recently came across the makeup brush cleaner that costs the same price but has more 70ml more product.

Hi guys, thanks for joining me for Part 2 of my Balm Stain mega post, I hope you’re looking forward to the Matte and Lacquer Balm Stains!
For the longest time I kept seeing posts about the Lacquer and Matte Balm Stains online and I really pined for them! I was on an endless quest to find a usable matte lip colour so I was so excited to find out that these ranges were being released in Australia.
Like the original Balm Stains, these retail at $17.95 each however I’ve already seen them go on sale at some of the major retailers here.
In regards to the application, the Lacquer balms are similar to the original formula whereas the Matte balms do have quite a different formula obviously because of the finish. They’re still gentle on the lips and hydrating but the Matte balms less so. That said, I’ve found them far more hydrating than any other “matte” lip product I’ve used.
Anyone who knows me is pretty aware of my love for the Revlon Balm Stain range, so this review might be a little biased! I picked up my first one in Smitten a little over a year ago and had no idea it would be the start of a very long running romance.
As I’ve picked up so many along my journey, I’ve split the post up into two, this first post will focus on the original range whilst the second one focuses on the Matte (M) and Lacquer (L) balms.
