Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 'Honey' swatch &review

Wish you all a very Happi Belated Diwali and a Prosperous New Year :D  Here, kuch meetha ho jaye...

Made by moi :p

A few days back I received a (big) bunch of gifts from a very very dear friend Kiran of mycherrylane from U.K. She sent me so many beautiful things that it was difficult for me to decide what to use 1st and what to review 1st. Lol

I zeroed in on this super cute pink crayon thingy from Revlon.

Its the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lip stain in shade 001 Honey Douce. I was sooo happi when I unwrapped it since I didn't have the slightest hint that I would be owning this cute chub :D

What Revlon says:

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


Step 1: Apply Just Bitten Kissable™ Balm Stain evenly to clean, bare lips. Build color and coverage as desired.

Step 2: Reapply as desired for moisturizing shine throughout the day.

My two pennies about this I can't stop calling it cute coz I am absolutely in love with how it looks :p

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey Douce is a nice purple pink shade which looks great across any skintone. I am so glad Kiran sent this to me because my love for nudes wouldn't have let me pick this up. I was happi that she sent me a shade of my like but boy, was I surprised when I opened the cap ? Just like you don't judge a book by its cover, similarly you can't judge these balm stains by the color of the outer plastic. And also I think that the shades will come out different on everyone due to the level of pigmentation on the lips.

The Revlon Just bitten Kissable is basically a heavily tinted lip balm, though sheer but has the properties of leaving stain on the lips.

When I say heavily tinted, it really gives the look of the lipstick for the 1st couple of hours. The shine starts to fade only after about 3 hours and the stain stays on the lips for a good 4 hours after the shine is gone, giving you a total of 7 hours of colored lips. Isn't that great ? Of course you can reapply as and when desired but I am not someone who does that. Simply because I forget to take my lipstick with me :p

Oh there's a the 'Balm' word in the name too, you say. Yes, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable moisturizes amazingly. YAY, its winter time :D

You see the shiny silver end of the crayon ? That's where you hold to twist the color stick up. The color stick itself is retractable so no issues if by chance you got the stick up more than was required.

So did a find a flaw with this product ? Yes, its not available in India :( Boo Revlon, what harm have we done to you ??

Price: $8.99

Rating: 4.5/5 happi :)
