Last week ,when I had gone to the mall,I was very curious about these balmstains.I really wanted to see if they were worth the hype.I swatched a few at the store ,and although I liked quite a few,I picked this up.This one looks really ugly in the tube but once applied ,it gives a very pretty look to the lips.Since I run a mile from anything thats evenly close to maroon.it took her a lot of convincing and finally I gave in and got this home with me.I absolutely love this product and looking at getting many more (would have got all but they are just too expensive! Revlon,are you listening …
- Price: Rs.600
About Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten:-
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.
My experience with Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain:-
I love the packaging .They look like the Clinique Chubby Sticks and are very handy to carry around in my handbag ,as the cap doesn’t come off and stays on tight.It is possible to damage the crayon when putting on the cap as the crayon doesn’t retract all the way in.They look like marker pens to me !
The colour is a gorgeous berry shade which is perfect for summers as its not too dark . Ofcourse,as its sheer ,the colour will look different on different people ,and the colour can be built up or toned down as per your preference. In fact ,this shade gives a “just bitten :look to my lips .
The moisturizing capability is not like a typical lipbalm,Its definitely less than a regular lipbalm but not drying like regular stains.So this is a boon for girls who are always battling with dry lips.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Swatches:-
The finish is glossy at first but after about an hour but then the glossiness vanishes and leaves behind a stain which stays put for a long time..almost 4-5 hrs.But at no point I have felt that it was drying.Being a darker colour,the fading is more prominent ,but nothing that cannot be tackled with a little touch up.
It feels incredibly light on the lips and is not sticky at all.And I love the slight minty fragrance you get when applied,although it disappears soon after.
All in all,I would say this is a fab product for the summers as I don’t like creamy lipsticks which will go all over my face in the humidity of Mumbai.For a Balm Stain,the pigmentation is good ,but it will not even out your lip pigmentation,if any.
What I like about Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Smitten:-
- I like the concept of having a hybrid of lip balm+lip stain
- Good range of colours
- Pigmentation is pretty good for a balm stain.
- long lasting
- Minty fragrance .
- Good packaging
- Doesn’t need sharpening
What I don’t like about Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Smitten:-
- Will not cover up lip pigmentation or unevenness
- it will not tackles extremely dry lips.
My rating : 4/5
Will I repurchase: I am already looking at Honey & Sweetheart.
