Love at First Bite! Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains


I'm totally smitten with Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains! I was able to procure these lovely lippies, thanks to the ever so sweet Justine from sakuralovely.

I found the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains to be beautifully pigmented, glossy, moisturizing, and wear for about 4-5 hours before fading. A word of advice, when using the darker shades, make sure your lips have been prepped (i.e. exfoliated and moisturized) prior to apply to avoid any unattractive faded patches :O 

These balm stains do have a subtle minty scent, and feel slightly reminiscent of TheBalm's 'Read My Lips' lipsticks, but without the repulsive dental office scent.

 From left to right: Precious, Charm, Rendezvous.

Precious: a flesh color nude.

Charm: a pale peach.

Rendezvous: a bright orange. 

 From left to right: Honey, Cherish, Darling.

Honey: a muted pink-mauve.

Cherish: a lavender-pink.

Darling: A pink-lilac. 

 From left to right: Sweetheart, Lovesick, Smitten.

Sweetheart: a bright blue-based pink.

Lovesick: a bright fuchsia-pink. 

Smitten: a berry-pink.

From left to right: Crush, Romantic, Adore.

Crush: a berry-wine.

Romantic: a muted tomato red.

Adore: a brownish-brick red.

The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are now available in Japan and retail for ¥1,260($16.52), but I've only seen six available shades :(

Have you tired the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains? If so, what's your favorite color? 

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  1. I got lovesick and it applies beautifully and it's very long lasting. I hate the smell though...

    1. I had two of the Chubby Sticks a while back, and I really enjoyed them. Think I should reinvest in them again :)

  11. after seeing a beauty blogger swatch "honey", immediately i'm falling it love with it. so beautyful. but after ordering it online through drugstore.com (since it's not yet available in my country) and applied it for the first time, i'm so dissapointed with it. too pinky. meeehh :(

    but, after a few hours, the stain exactly like what you swatch, exactly the color that i want. it's my favourite lipstick now :)
