Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain - Charm



Hey Everyone,
Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain (could they not have come up with a shorter name!) has been a huge hit with beauty lovers everywhere for the past year. Recently a friend of mine was going to America so I asked him to pick me up one in the colour 'Charm'. The shade is not available here or in the UK, and of course it was cheaper. I had researched the Just Bitten Balm Stains before hand and discovered that yet again we're getting different colours to the US, why is this? Its so frustrating! 
Luckily I managed to get my hands on it, but when it runs out I'm going to be devastated because the colour is AMAZING! 
It is orange pink and shimmery peachy toned, which is very natural and pretty. The product goes on like a balm although pretty quickly dries to the stain finish, (but it doesn't feel drying). It does leave behind the colour but only for a small while. I find I have to re-apply every half an hour or so, but for the colour is produces I'd happily re-apply all day. I'm not sure if its because the colour isn't as strong (light/pale), bolder colours might be longer lasting because of a higher stain colour ...this is something I'd be interested to find out! 

What's also great about this product is that it is in the style of a crayon, making it really easy to apply... no mirror necessary. As well as this there is no need to run around trying to find a sharpener when its blunt as it is a twist up crayon. 
I have had mine for a couple of months now and in the last couple of weeks have been wearing it pretty much everyday, it still hasn't really worn down  and I haven't had to twist anymore up yet. So it should definitely last me a while! One thing that can't go unmentioned is the amazing smell of this product its super minty and I love it! 
I love the packaging, its just simple no frills. Also the outside is the colour of the lip product which I always find really useful when your quickly looking to find a particular colour. One thing that is not great about the packaging is that the writing has started to come off the packaging now which I find really annoying.

The only downside to this product is that I find you have to have well moisturised lips otherwise it does have a tendency to cling to dry parts and highlight them, again that could just be the shade. 

Have you tried any of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain?

  2. I have a pinky colour, forget the name but I do really like it. I always apply a bit of vaseline to my lips beforehand cause I also have notice it sticks to the dry parts - annoying!

  7. I'm blonde, I had a cheap lipstick like this in 1988, and I've been on the lookout for a similar colour ever since! This Revlon one is a great colour but goes on sheer, so I just wish it was less transparent, more creamy, so the colour would be stronger. I also found this Revlon one does not last very long at all, of all my lipsticks this disappears fastest, maybe because of the pale colour. I love the minty taste.
