It’s about time I got around to reviewing these babies. They have been firm staples in my routine (and handbag) since I picked them up a few months ago. Nearly identical to Clinique Chubby Sticks but alot more purse friendly, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are a must have this season. With a spectrum of pretty colours housed in sleek packaging, there is something for everybody. I have Darling, a light lavender pink and Crush, a bright berry. The first thing I love about these, is the application. It’s no secret that “crayon” type lip products are my favourite, but the way the Revlon Balm Stains effortlessly glide onto the lips really is reminiscent of a balm. The formula is moisturising and the colour nicely pigmented, being buildable so desired opacity can be achieved. Another plus is longevity, colour sticking around for hours with only minor fading, the darker of the two staining the lips a little.
I do have a Clinique Chubby Stick but find myself reaching for these alot more. If I was to purchase other shades in the future (which I probably will) I would go for Revlon over Clinique, purely for the price. Both products work the same, in fact I would say they are pretty identical, it’s just one is double the price.
Pros: Affordable, Long lasting, Easy application, Moisturising, Practical attractive packaging.
Cons: Only 7 shades (although they are pretty diverse).
You can find the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in Boots or Superdrug for £7.99 each, although there are often offers to take advantage of. I would love to see more shades released in the future, hello plum/dark purple!
