AMW Reviews: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

The first time I saw the cute Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain was from my online Glamour Magazine last month! They reminded me so much of my favorite Clinique's Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm.

Scroll down to check out the 4 shades I got!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain's Packaging is the exact color as the balm!


035 Charm

050 Precious

020 Lovesick

045 Romantic

Revlon says ---
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 lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood. 
  •  Lightweight Lipstain + Moisturizing Balm
  • 100% of women who tried it felt their lips were instantly moisturized with a soft stain of color
  •  Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required
AMW says ---
Pros
  • Retractable!  No sharpening needed and the tube is too cute!
  • Glides on smoothly. 
  • Very moisturizing.
  • The darker shades are quite pigmented.
  • For a lip stain/balm, the product stays on your lips for at least half a day!
  • Tiny hint of scent that doesn't bother me.
Cons
  • The lighter shades may not show up as much as we want them to.
  • Because re-application is addicting because of the moisturizing properties, I think I will finish up the product faster than most of my lipsticks!

Overall
A lipbalm and lipstain in one!  I love to bring this along for touch-ups even without an extra lip balm!

Tips
  • If you prefer very subtle shades, pick the lighter shades.
  • If you have dark pigmented lips like mine, keep in mind that the lighter shades may not show up.  It works just like regular lip balm.
  • I tend to skip lip balm application because the product is moisturizing enough, I strongly suggest to still apply a good amount of lip balm and blot off excess before Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain application.
  • Always store in cool, dry place.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  But definitely the more deeper shades.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone into lipsticks minus the drying factor.

Where to purchase and how much?

Local Revlon counters for Php575.00 (approx $13.70).

Swatches

035 Charm doesn't show up on my lips and applies sheer just like a regular lip balm


050 Precious has a creamier texture but still appears nothing in terms of color.  It helped made the color of my lips more even and I like to use this underneath a light colored lipstick.

020 Lovesick is a gorgeous hot pink shade that's moisturizing at the same time!

045 Romantic is great for girls who are just starting out on using red lipsticks!  The red shade isn't too strong yet it gives a nice statement.

What's your favorite shade among the 4 that I swatched?
My favorite is 020 Lovesick!  I love it so much I used it on The Purple Groom Photoshoot with Char Char :)

P.S. Char Char...on the other hand, doesn't have any lipstain on! *laughs*

  10. Hey Nikki! I got this in the Lovesick color as well! At first I was supposed to get the Smitten color but I tried it on my lips and it looked amazing when I first applied it, but as I went around SM to look at other brands, I noticed that it got darker and became a deeper purple-ish hue! So I went back and changed it to Lovesick at the last second! It's my first fuschia-colored lippie since I usually only stick to the reds but wanted to try something new this time! I plan on getting Sweetheart next cause it seems like it gives like a natural-ish pink glow on the lips which I've been wanting ever since I was a kid! Problem though is that I have a dark upper lip. As in, DARK. IT covers like 3/4 my upper lip and the lower lip is a shade lighter!! So I'm not sure if the lighter colors (and Sweetheart, for that matter!) will provide enough pigmentation to cover my dark upper lip! :( It looks gorgeous on all the hauls of girls from YouTube, but that's mainly because they're Caucasian and have pale, colorless lips that are more versatile to different colors!! Fingers crossed though!! :) What do you think? Hehe!

    1. Sis thanks for sharing your purchasing experience, glad you tested it out and walked around to see if the product still works for you after several minutes! Great job! :)

      With re: to the lighter colored lipstick, true, since we have more pigmented lips, the lighter colored ones will not show up or will make us look "pale" and "sick" that's why those who have lightly colored lips to start with looks so good on nude colored lippies! :)

    2. My sentiments exactly!! I always feel like I look pale or sick when my lips don't have that pop of color. Haha!:)

      Anyway, will try out the Sweetheart color and let you know how it goes!

      Thanks for your reply! It's very nice that you are involved with your readers. :) I love your blog which I recently discovered and love that you reply!! Thanks again and more power to you! :)

    3. No problem, I super enjoy reading comments from readers at least I know I'm not talking to myself! hahahha :) Sure, update me once you get the Sweetheart! I plant o purchase more too! As I'm loving the pigmented shades and they are very moisturizing!
