Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

Tuesday, 30 April 2013

The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains(I'm only going to type that once!) hit up a massive buzz on the blogosphere when they came out. The best dupe to Clinique's Chubby Sticks on the market, these offer long lasting lip colour at the cheap price of £7.99. There are a wide range of colours but I decided to go for Honey, a very nude pink. I would say that this is a 'my lips but better' colour with a definite pink tinge. I really love this. It's a perfect colour for when you don't want something so eye catching on yours lips, for example I wear this to school all the time and still feel rather confident. Once applied I would say this lasts as a stain for about four hours or so and they hold up pretty well against eating and drinking. but I do think it needs touched up within that time for it still to look perfect. They're so easy to apply. They twist up from the bottom so don't require any sharpening, which makes them a really good product to take with you if you're travelling for a while. They're also very smooth in consistency and glide onto the lips and don't tug on your skin. I think these are definitely worth the hype that they've received  The colours are all so nice, I have my eye on crush as well, and the quality is superb.

 I can't compare these to the Chubby Sticks as I've never tried one, but I'm so pleased with this that I wouldn't want to spend the money on one. The only flaw that I can find in this is the scent/flavour. It smells and tastes of quite a strong mint essence, and not really in a good way. Although this disappears about 10 minutes after application so it's not really all that much of a problem. Plus I've read reviews where people said they liked this, I guess it's just down to personal taste.
