Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain | Romantic & Sweetheart Valentine

I’m not a big fan of lip stains as they’re quite unforgiving to those with dry and cracked lips. I have tried Revlon’s balm + stain before and it was the most horrible with a capital H. With all the buzz circulating in the beauty community about Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, I convinced myself to buy it. Maybe it’ll change my perspective on lip stains. Let’s see.

I picked up two shades, 025 Sweetheart Valentine (hot pink) and 045 Romantic (red orange) from Walmart ($8.78 each). It smells and tastes mint (reminds me of tarte) which dissipates after a few minutes, glides easily, and decently pigmented. Ditch the sharpener (I thought I need one), it has a twist-up bottom that allows you to adjust your lippy.

The proof is in the eating. Romantic (red orange) survived the greasy flat noodles from Panda Express (wait, did I just take this quotation too literal? lol). I am amazed that I don’t need to touch up after a meal ~ not as bright when I first put it on but presentable enough to face clients. I love that it hydrated my lips just as good as my go-to untinted lip balm. It would’ve been a lot nicer if it has built-in SPF, don’t you think so?

Repurchasing? I would but if it’s proven that Revlon is no longer cruelty-free (see petition here), it’s gonna be another bittersweet goodbye for moi.

    These are more affordable than the Clinique ones, Im deff buying these because Revlon never lets me down in the moisturization part

      I've heard and read that these are comparable to Clinique chubby pencils. I love Revlon's lip butters and these are very close second. Thanks for visiting my blog Lana.

    You look so good in those shades! I bought Honey and I'm giving it to a friend but I do want to buy a light pink and see how I like it.
