Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain 'Romantic' swatch & review

By now it must be a common knowledge that my dislike for bold/bright lip colors is more stronger then my love for neutrals. I tend to look for neutrals in every lipstick stand I see around in stores. Buying the neutral Revlon lip butter in Brown Sugar left a bitter taste in my mouth (not literally okay) and I took it as a signal from the makeup god up in the heaven that it is high time I stopped buying brown nude lip colors. If I wasn't satisfied with the 25 odd neutral lippies that I have then I probably won't be with another 50 :p

And so I came to the decision to try some other color and I had even mentioned in my Revlon Just Bitten 'Honey' swatch post that I would like to try a red from the same range.

So when Revlon launched these gol-mol babies in India, I hopped and skipped to my usual cosmetic store to buy my 1st red lipstick or rather a tinted lip balm. If I am going to try and use more of bold lip colors, it better not be totally in-your-face types :/

So Revlon has these in 10 shades in India. Out of the 2 reds, I chose Romantic which looked a deep red in the bullet, but applies a sheer warm red with a hint of orange.

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm Stains are light weight, gel based jumbo tinted lip balms. They go on sheer on the lips but you can build up the intensity of the color using added number of swipes. And you still can't go over the top.

Romantic lasts for about 4 hours on me and there is no stain left at all after 6 hours. They certainly do moisturize the lips to some extent but of course its not repair therapy. The Just Bittens have a light minty fragrance and mild tingling which lasts only for a couple of minutes and honestly it doesn't bother me !

Bare lips

You don't need to worry about having to sharpen these as they are retractable crayons. My only worry is that when the pointed tip is gone after many uses, its gonna be a flat top for application. Oh well, its still far even though I am reaching for this baby more than the neutrals these days ;)

I am wearing 'Romantic in this FOTD :D
