You know something is good when you keep going back for more. When a product works, you just sort of want it in every color so you can wear it all the time and never have to worry about your lips ever again. So, I don’t have EVERY color of the amazing Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, but I do have 4. I’m currently on a ‘no buy’ for lips until I finish a few products up, and let me say, it takes forever to go through a lip product. Okay, I should probably just get to talking about the product.
The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are a jumbo lip crayon. The product goes on like a creamy lipstick with a bit of shine, but dries to leave a like stain on the lips. The ‘balm’ aspect keeps the lips hydrated and creamy, but the stain keeps the color lasting.
There are 12 colors in the range. There are nudes, pinks, reds, berries, every color category you can imagine. A lot of them aren’t the most wearable, everyday shades, but there is definitely something for everyone. While they are pigmented, they still act like a balm and have a bit of a sheer finish. The darker color pack on more color than the lighter ones.
I really fell for the Balm Stains because they feel great on the lips, but still leave color. I think it is hard to find a staining or long lasting product that doesn’t dry the lips. Also, they are super easy to use since they are in crayon form!
The colors I have are Honey, Sweetheart, Smitten and Rendezvous. Without a doubt Honey is my favorite color, and one of my most used lip products. Honey is a light mauvey pink, one of those ‘my lips but better’ type shades. I also find when I don’t know what to wear, Honey comes in and saves the day. I also find since it is closer to my lip color, the stain wears better.
My other two favorites are Sweetheart and Smitten. Sweetheart is a bright purple pink that I love to wear with an all black outfit for a pop of color. Smitten is a really beautiful purpley pink berry shade. This shade gets a lot more wear in the fall. The last color I have is Rendezvous. I don’t wear this as much because the color doesn’t go with as much stuff in my wardrobe, but I still do love it. I have a few shirts with the same orangey shade in the pattern, and I love wearing this shade with them.

There are a few other colors I definitely want to buy, but as I said I’m not letting myself buy any lip products right now. I think I want to try Cherish, maybe Crush for the Winter, maybe just all of them. Which one is your favorite?
