Beauty Blurbs: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain – Crush Review


Today, I wanted to do a review of Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the color Crush. I sang Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain’s praises before when I reviewed the color Honey. Several months ago, I also picked up a tube of the balm stain in the color Crush. Crush is much more bold than Honey, and I have been getting tons of wear out of it during the fall and winter months.1indoorlightnoflash

In some lighting it appears more pinky-red, and it some lighting it appears more cranberry or burgundy colored.2indoorlightwithflash

The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains have great pigmentation and apply smoothly. I love how they can really bump up a simple makeup look. 3flashnoflash

I made sure to include several pictures with different lighting to show the versatility of this balm stain. I love that it’s a balm and a stain combined because it’s really moisturizing unlike some long-wearing lip products. Typically when I get stains they really dry out my lips and crack quickly. Not worth the convenience of fewer applications. That’s so not the case with Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain.4naturallightnoflash

This product seriously lasts forever on my lips! I think the Crush color definitely has more “staying power” than Honey. This could be simply because it’s darker, or because it’s more heavily pigmented.5both

It could be my imagination, but I think Crush makes my teeth look a little whiter, too! Every little bit helps, right?6goofysmile

I applied Crush before I ran errands all day, and took a picture to show how well the balm stain lasts. I had eaten cereal, drank water, run errands, and not reapplied once! When Honey wears off on me, it leaves a sort of lipliner effect. That wasn’t the case with Crush! It appeared to wear off equally all over my lip, which was great.
7hourslaterAt under $8 at most retailers, you can’t beat the price and quality of Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. You can also get them online, here! They have so many color selections, so there’s something for every lip color and occasion! I’d definitely recommend picking one (or two…or six) up next time you see them on display! I’m hoping to acquire more colors soon!
