Lakme Pop Tints Vs Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain


Like most of you I was pretty unconvinced about the new Lakme Pop tints which Lakme introduced with lot of pomp and show. Have  you noticed that ever since Kareena Kapoor has become Lakme Ambassador, there has been a sharp rise in their product pricing. Few days back when I was picking up the pop tints I found every one jumping over their Rs100 discount but no body was bothered to check them out. In fact Lifestyle counter did not have any testers for these and new products were hidden somewhere.India is a price sensitive country and I am sure it’s going to take little time for these pop tints to make a mark.

As far as Revlon Lip Stains are concerned they have been around , loved and hated .Some just got them in 3-4 shades and some didn’t like them all but its true that it has been one of the recent hot selling products of Revlon.

Before we move ahead let us know what both companies claim and the pricing .

Revlon Lipstain Vs Lakme Pop tint

Lakme Pop Tints  Vs Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

  • Pigmentation  – With Revlon Lip Stains I need to glide them two three times to cover up the pigmentation and get even application.I need to wait for a 2-3 seconds for the tint to settle down.It works pretty fine on the lower lip but on my upper lip which is pigmented it needed little work. Whereas Lakme pop tint seems more or less like a light weight lipstick which needs no layering as such.They hide pigmentation easily. If you have highly pigmented lips then you might need two layers max unlike Revlon lip stains.
  • Hydrating – Revlon lip stain looks glossy and more hydrating but they are not. Lakme one is more hydrating and doesn’t need lip balm underneath. Lakme Pop tints will suit dry lips more and won’t accentuate fine lines which Revlon does to an extent.
  • Shimmer – Lakme Pop tints have really really fine shimmer where as Revlon is more glossy without shimmer in it.
  • Staying power –  In Lakme pop tints, intense shades like Red or berry stay for 2-3 hours and then the tint stays for a while but less intense shades are not that long staying and need touch ups.Same is the case with Revlon ones but I do find they are tad bit longer staying than Lakme.
  • Packaging – Revlon packaging is more fun and is easily recognized as the shade on packaging is similar to  the shade inside. where as Lakme packaging is black with a transparent cap.
  • Price – Lake Pop tints cost INR 800 where as Revlon  Lip Stains cost INR 600.

I prefer Lakme more because it suits my pigmented lips, moreover they are not drying. With Revlon, if you didn’t come across the drying and pigmentation problem then you should stick to it as  it cost 200 bucks less and there is more shade variation in it 🙂

So what are you going to prefer ? Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain or Lakme pop tints ?


P.S – Our team members bought more pop tints although everyone was saving . I am so jealous to know that Shweta got them of INR 720 .
