Review | Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Darling

Hello lovelies, 

I have found a new love in my life. The new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain. 
Yes, the name is a bit of a mouthful...

I feel like I have waited so long for this product, when I first heard about it I knew I was going to want pretty much every shade avaliable to buy, and as always England does not get the same amount of balm stain shades as America :(! However as soon as I got back from my holiday last week I headed to Superdrug and picked up two of the Kissable Balm Stain's. 

Revlon say, "Just Bitten Kissable is a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain that gives you softer, smoother lips with a flush of shiny color that lasts hour after hour. The smooth and moisturizing gel formula glides on beautifully with a light peppermint fragrance for truly kissable lips – and the retractable chubby crayon is the perfect accessory for any occasion as no sharpener is required!"

 The packaging is so adorable and expensive looking. I love the fact that you can twist the balm up and you do not need to sharpen the crayon style end, which means you also are not going to loose any of the product. I actually prefer the look of the Kissable Balm Stain to the Clinique Chubby Stick that is it obviously compared with. 

There is a strong smell and taste of mint that tingles for a little while but I really like it. It does fade quickly.
My lips tend to be a bit dry, and I have never had a brilliant experience with a lip stain before. The Kissable Balm Stain is moisturising and smooth for a product sold as a stain. It is so easy to apply as it glides straight on and you can do it without a mirror. It is creamy and sits on the lips without clinging to any dry patches.

Darling is a beautiful soft pink lilac shade. I chose it as I have nothing like it. I thought it would be difficult to wear but it is actually very flattering and a beautiful shade. It is extremely pigmented for a balm stain, it has the same sort of colour pay off as a lipstick. After about five hours of wear the balm fades into a lovely lilac stain that lasts all day.

I really recommend these as I love them so much! I even love them more than the lip butters.
They retail at £7.99 but are currently £5.99 in Superdrug.
