Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

I've purchased two Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains from eBay, as it's not out in Australia yet... and besides it'll be ridiculously expensive when it comes out... everything always is :(

The shades purchased after looking at a whole heap of swatches online are "Charm" and "Honey". I initially wanted "Charm" as I was after a nude colour, but decided to get "Honey" as well to make postage per item cheaper.

I actually like Honey a whole lot more than Charm. Charm seems to accentuate my dry lips, and settle into lines. Honey does not do that. Both lip stain balms apply smoothly and has a pepperminty smell, which I love. I also like the packaging - you twist the bottom silvery part to get more product out. The cap sits firmly on so you can throw it in your bag without having to worry about the cap coming off. The colour payoff is great and it lasts quite a long time on my lips (3-4 hours) before I feel the need to apply more.

Overall, I feel the need to buy more of these balm stains! These are fantastic!

EDIT: I've taken some photos of me wearing the balm stains. Sorry for the poor quality photos, I used my iPhone to take these.

  1. I've heard a lot about these, can't wait to get my hands on some. Wonder how much they will be when they finally reach Aussie shores? $20 maybe? Hmmm...I think I might get mine of ebay too :)

  2. I have been wanting these for agesssss. I am thinking of getting rendezvous :) I love corals. I have a question, how do they fade? Is it even, patchy or settles on the rim of your lips?

    1. The Honey one fades evenly on my lips, not sure about the Charm one as I removed it straight after I applied it due to it accentuating the drier parts of my lips.

    1. I think these are so amazing, they're better than the Clinique Chubby sticks! Might have to do a comparison post. You should definitely get some from eBay!
