Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain's

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain's in 'Romantic' and 'Crush' - £7.99
 
Described as a 'pampering balm fused with a lightweight lip stain in an adorable, retractable chubby lip crayon'.

After seeing the Revlon Kissable Lip Balm Stain's splashed across almost every blog I read and hearing that they were a dupe for the Clinique chubby sticks I knew I had to pick a few up. I wasn't particularly interested in the pink or nude shades as I knew they wouldn't make a huge difference to the colour of my lips so I opted for the two red shades on display. 

'Romantic' is a classic Vixen, old Hollywood red.
'Crush' is a gorgeous, deep cherry plum.
 
The packaging of these are simplistic but sweet, it did take me a few minutes to figure out but they twist up so you never have to bother sharpening them - a huge plus for me. These balms are quite firm and waxy so I don't foresee them breaking off and you end up using very little product, also helped by the fact that the pigmentation is amazing! If you're a little colour shy then a light handed application will give you a hint of colour or you can apply more generously for the full effect.
I always exfoliate my lips prior to applying any lip products to eradicate any dry patches so I had no problems with uneven application, etc. These apply like a dream, gliding on to the lips and feel smooth and creamy once on. I find these to be pretty moisturising but by the end of the day the glossy finish has faded and the colour has worn off slightly in areas due to drinking or eating although you'll still have a base colour where your lips are stained - a quick top up is all that's needed!
 
The only downside, for me is the minty scent - I don't understand why anyone needs minty lips?! but I can overlook this minor negative.
 
Revlon is currently on 3 for 2 in Boots so if you fancy trying out a few of the Lip Balm Stain's get yourself down there ASAP!
