So once again I have caved and bought the latest craze is the bloggers world. I'm sure you've heard of Revlon just bitten kissable balm stains by now and if not, where have you been?!
What Revlon say:
It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood.
-Lightweight Lipstain + Moisturizing Balm
-100% of women who tried it felt their lips were instantly moisturized with a soft stain of color
-Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required
I didn't really know what shade to buy because I don't wear bright colours on my lips and in the UK most of the RJBKBS colours available are bright. However, looking at other peoples review I loved the colour Cherish and decided that would be the first colour I would try. Every time I went into my local boots or superdrug they didn't have this colour so I decided to order it off eBay, it was only £5.99 with free delivery and the delivery was extremely quick so I was very happy!
I was a bit unsure about whether I would actually like these balm stains as I'm not really a lip product person and for me to wear it I have to be extremely impressed. After trying the Revlon lip butters (you can read my post about them here) I had high hopes for this product as it was getting just as much praise from the blogging community and I was not disappointed!
The first thing I noticed about this product was that it was extremely easy to apply even though it looks like it would be quite difficult, it is extremely moisturising and I find the pigmentation very good for a lip balm product. I like my lip colours quite pale so using this product is perfect, however, if you want a brighter pint you can just use more of this product as it gives a lovely bright pink if more is used.
Another thing I loved about this product is the minty scent, I have read that people don't like this but personally I loved it as it isn't too strong and doesn't smell like most lip products. As for the stain, I am extremely impressed. As you can see from the picture above, I swatched the colour on my hand and after taking this picture and wiping it off it has left a stain on my hand that has been on it all day and won't come off which shows the staying power of the stain is good!
Overall I found this product extremely moisturising and love the colour, I think I will probably now use this more than my loved lip butters *gasp*. I have already ordered Charm which is a nude colour but as this isn't available in England I am waiting for it to be shipped from America.
Thanks for reading
Have you tried these? What colours do you have?
