Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stains in Honey and Romantic



I've been meaning to review these for quite a while now (hence the worn-out condition of the Honey stain... sorry!). I bought my first one of these a couple of weeks before Christmas after hearing a lot of good things about them. I was a bit skeptical at first about the stain part and thought it would be a gimmick more than anything else but they do actually work! I find the shine you get from applying these lasts about two hours but the colour will last a lot longer, even after eating and drinking. They are so easy to apply as well. They look like giant crayons which you just pop the lid off, glide over your lips and you're done. There's no need to sharpen these either, if you're beginning to run out just twist the end and up pops more product!

The two shades I have are Honey and Romantic. Honey is a very pretty nude pink colour which is probably just a shade or two darker than my natural lip colour. I've been wearing it for work quite a lot as it makes my lips look 'done' without being too noticeable. Romantic is a very wearable shade as well, as even though its a red colour, its not too bright or too dark for everyday wear. The great thing about both of these is the colours are very buildable so you can wear as little or as much as you want.

My only gripe about these stains is they do tend to dry my lips out slightly after a couple of hours but its not too noticeable so I still really enjoy wearing them. They do have a minty smell as well which I think some people might not like but it wears off as soon as you apply it so don't let this put you off.

These are usually around £7.99 each but Superdrug are currently running a £2 off promotion on these, plus free standard delivery so I'd definitely take advantage of this offer if you were thinking about trying these out.

Do you own any of these? Which shade is your favourite?


P.S. I'd just like to say thank you to the very lovely Katie-Anna for nominating me for another Liebster award! I'm so honored, it really does mean a lot to me so thank you again :) x
