Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile, but I've been really sick *sigh*. Now I'm back and want to wish you a very Happy Memorial Day!!! :)
This past week I've been obsessed with trying to find Revlon Balm Stain. I got two and think it's time to review.
Product Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey and Crush
Where to purchase: drugstores, retail, and online
Price: $9.29 for 0.095 oz/ 2.7 g
Made in USA
Description from site: It's a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that last hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood.
Thoughts: I'm a big fan of Revlon products and was extremely excited about this product! It reminded me of Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm. For that reason, I've been wanting to get one or two. I also heard it's very similar to Tarte LipSurgence. I cannot say since I do not own any Clinique or Tarte. I can only judge the Revlon one.
The first thing I did is smell the balm. They smell like mint. I also heard some people can smell the mint as soon as they apply it. With some, it takes longer. With me, I did not smell mint on my lips whats so ever. :X For someone who's really sensitive with smell or at least what I've been told, I did not smell the mint. I guess it depends on the person. I also heard some people felt slight tingling sensation. I did not at all, and I will be the first person to admit I hate tingling sensation on my lips. There was no issue with that on my side.
One thing I like about these balm is that it is retractable! I did not want to buy a separate sharpener just for these crayons. I know some crayons you need to sharpen it. I'm glad you don't have to with these.
Here's how these two crayons look on me.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with this balm. It did not dry out my lips and the color lasted for a good amount of time.
* Revlon; a brand I trust.
* 12 shades.
* Did not smell the mint on the lips.
* No tingling sensation.
* Color is build-able.
* Leaves a nice stain on the lips.
* Color lasts some time.
