Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

One of the main reasons I picked up this Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain is because I had heard that the shade Honey was really difficult to get hold of (there were loads in the boots in Swansea!) it was also on an introductory offer of £5.99 which is £2 less than it will usually be.

The colour of the tube is a little bit deceiving as its a very pale pinky shade which didn't interest me at all, but I picked it up any way just to see what the fuss was and the shade inside is a much more wearable pinky nude so I'm very glad I did pick it up.

The difference in colour is pretty clear in this picture, the packaging ,although the wrong colour, is very nice as its clear to see which shade is which in the range and looks very pretty in all the colours, it's quite modern and I will be happy to be seen applying this. The crayon style of this is really easy to apply and reminds me of the Clinique Chubb sticks. I have been rotating it as I apply to try and keep the point as you twist it up from the bottom rather than sharpening it, which should save lots of product.

This is my perfect 'my lips but better' shade and is perfect for everyday easy application, I could get away with a slick of this and some mascara on lazy days! The balm stain has a sweet minty scent which is very subtle and disappears pretty soon after application it's not my favourite lipstick scent but certainly doesn't bother me. For a balm the product is a lot more pigmented than I was expecting and has a nice lipsticky feel for the first few hours of wear, even when the feel fades there is a definite stain left but I think it is more noticeable in the brighter shades.

This is definitely my new favourite lippy and I will be repurchasing a few more at this price ASAP!
Have you bought any balm stains? Do you have a favourite 'my lips but better' lippy?
I'm gonna head back to watching the Olympics, I'm so obsessed!

  2. That looks lovely! That is definitely the kind of shade I wear, so will give it a go! But you're right... the name of it certainly doesn't fit with the shade!

  5. Hey,
    How would you say it compares to the chubby stick? I'm torn between the two!
    I love that they add a low maintenance colour

    1. I haven't bought the Chubb stick, it's been on my wish list for ages but I hate spending so much on a high end product if it's glossy and won't last me! I tend to splurge more on mattes that I know will be worth it. Now that I have this one for such a reasonable price I have crossed the Clinique off my list! X
