Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous

Last week when I was in Boots I decided to have a look at the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains as everyone seems to be raving about them. The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains come in two different variations. One variation of them is like a chubby crayon (think Clinique) and the other variation is like a liquid pen (think Max Factor Lip Tint) with a balm on the other end.

I swatched all of the available colours in Boots but I only really liked two of the crayon colours - Lovesick, which is a purpley magenta and Rendezvous, an orange lip colour. Well, from the name of this blog post you can probably guess which one I went for but looking back, I wish I chose Lovesick as I don't have any lip colours in my collection in that shade whereas I have plenty of corally oranges.

I didn't really know what to expect when I tried this out but it really is like a big crayon. The nib is quite big which is good as you can cover your lips in one big sweep but also makes it a bit tricky as it's rather hard to stay in your lip line and not get it all over your chin. The colour when applied all over the lips is much more opaque than when swatched on the back of the hand. Perhaps I used a little too much as it did make my lips looks very orange which I feel doesn't suit me completely but when used lightly it leaves a lovely hint of colour.

One of the great things about this is that it isn't drying at all. It's so moisturising and I forget I'm wearing it. It wears for around 4 hours but then it leaves a lovely coral stain behind so I don't feel the need to re-apply. Perfect!

One thing to mention about these Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains is the smell. They smell an awful lot like mint and in my opinion, not in a good way. It isn't noticeable when wearing the product but when you take the lid off it's very strong to begin with. Overall, I really love these Balm Stains and I think I will definitely be going back to Boots to get Lovesick too. These are definitely worth the hype!
