Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Review + Lip Swatches

I never usually buy anything from the glossy catalogues on planes but when faced with an offer as good as what I saw for Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, there's really no excuse, is there?

I have lusted after these chubby crayons for so long but have somehow never been able to part with £7.99 (which isn't too bad really considering the amount of product you get). Revlon promises "softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of colour that lasts hour after hour" and I have to agree with this claim.

The pack I picked up on the plane back from Hamburg includes three gorgeous shades: Sweetheart, Honey and Rendezvous (new spelling learnt there). The collection however does contain 12 different colours and has a wide range suited to everyone.

Luckily the pack contained quite different shades and I have been wearing all three out an awful lot. I just love the concept of a tinted lip balm that doubles up as a stain so it lasts longer. They're so creamy and moisturising which makes them feel amazing on your lips! The pigmentation on all the balms is excellent with just one swipe but you can easily build up the colour for maximum impact.

And now, for lip swatches (appeal for all lip product reviews to contain lip swatches please)!


This is an incredibly bright, verging on neon, cool-toned pink colour that is sure to make you stand out. It definitely can be used to create a statement lip and I have enjoyed pairing it with just a thin eyeliner wing and lots of mascara.


I have always been terrified of nude lip colours because I feel they wash me out however I think I may have found my perfect alternative. Honey has just the right amount of pigmentation for a colour that, for me, reaches a balance between nude and my-lips-but-better and I love it. I think this may be the closest to a nude lip colour I'll feel confident wearing! The pale pink shade makes me feel very feminine and creates a softening, pretty look to the face and overall makeup look (in my opinion). It goes smashingly with my Benefit peek a bright eyes palette.

Now this is an interesting shade. Not quite a pink or a coral, I think Rendezvous is somewhere in-between. At first look I assumed it would be a neon orange shade but I was pleasantly surprised after swatching. Although it is a very bright, perhaps again neon shade, the warm pinky undertones create a soft feel to the colour while the orange/coral tones add interest and create a colour I haven't seen a lot and certainly have never worn before. It's definitely one of my new favourites.


I would definitely recommend picking up a few of these pretty balms; with a wide range of colours to select from I'm sure you'll find something and you won't be disappointed. I love how moisturising they are on the lips and with the super pigmentation and pretty good lasting power, £7.99 really isn't that much. Plus, I believe there is a 3 for 2 deal on selected Revlon products at Boots just now, so what are you waiting for? Buy them all!! I probably will end up doing just that...

Have you tried these balms from Revlon? What's your favourite shade?
