If you truly want a product that won’t budge or melt off throughout the day, TikTok is right — this is it. Regardless of the amount you sweep onto your face, the coverage remains extremely opaque.
I wasn't able to find my perfect match with this one because there are only 11 shades. To blend, I had to top my face off with a subtle bronzer. That said, this is the most lightweight and nourishing of the balms I tried.
Make sure your skin is heavily moisturized before you try this one — once I applied it, I became painfully aware of every flake of dryness. Like the other balms, the finish was full coverage and matte, but it gives an especially blurring effect.
This comes with a brush that’s perfect for applying the balm, which is a win for the convenience factor. The shades seem to air on the light side, so I would go a shade darker than you think. Otherwise, this balm felt like it hid my pores and fine lines like magic.
