Hey y’all! You already know about my love affair with Revlon lip colors, so I wanted to share another color I picked up: Adore. This shade is a brick color with a touch of shimmer.
Adore is a little more sheer than my other Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, which I don’t prefer. I like it when my lip color completely covers my lips. It still has a great color payoff, but I wanted to mention that it isn’t as pigmented as Crush, for example. The picture above is a picture of Adore just after application with the flash from my camera.
This picture shows the the balm stain in natural light. The color differs based on your natural lip color, as always. For example, my mom purchased this shade first, and it looks completely different on her! If you’re worried about how the shade will look on your own lips, I would recommend purchasing this product somewhere that will honor a refund like Ulta.
The brick color of this lip product makes it perfect for fall, but I think it can be worn in the warmer seasons as well. It’s a great alternative for someone wanting to ease into bolder lip colors, without jumping in with a bright red lip.
As with my other Revlon Balm Stains, this product has a good wear time, but it does rub off and leave a “lipliner effect” on me after eating or drinking. Also, after I have it on for awhile, it does feather a bit around my lip line. I still think it’s a great purchase, especially for the price point!
Thanks for reading my thoughts on Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore!
Until next time!
Hey y’all! Today I wanted to do a quick review of another Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain. I already sang the praises of Honey and Crush, so I picked up Romantic on my last trip to Ulta assuming I’d love it just as much. Unfortunately…I didn’t. I gave it a whirl this morning as I was leaving to go babysit. I felt like a showgirl…this was definitely not the best morning babysitting look. The things I do for y’all.
The outside of Romantic’s tube made me think it was going to be a rich cranberry red with tons of color like the other balm stains. However, Romantic was more like (shocker) a balm stain. It was kind of sheer and shiny without as much pigmentation as some of the other shades. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised because it does fit the bill as a balm stain, but it really differs from my other shades.
It looks thick in my pictures, but I can assure you it was pretty sheer. There was definitely a good amount of color, but Romantic wasn’t as vibrant as Crush for sure. It was also slightly pinker than I was expecting. The wear was comparable to Crush and Honey, but Romantic may have worn off slightly quicker. I think the more sheer color caused less of a stain to remain on my lips as well. Although I do like how it looks in my natural light pictures, I decided to return this shade to Ulta today. It definitely looks better in my pictures than it did in person. At least Ulta has an awesome return policy!
For someone looking for more of a sheer balm-like lip product, I would say go for Romantic. I wasn’t a fan, but the color was pretty, and I could see others liking it for sure. If you think you’d like it, grab a tube of Romantic here! I was able to pick up another Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm to try today, so hopefully I can review that soon! I also have some new eyeliners, eyeshadows, and primers to review too! Lots of Beauty Blurbs coming your way!
And, to round out this post, some more super awkward pictures of me. Enjoy!
