To tell the truth, I always thought that drugstore makeup products are not good and qualitative at all. Well, I was so wrong about it. I constantly try new products from popular brands and most of them positively impress me!
Today I’m going to review Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the Crush shade. It’s an autumn, very vibrant shade. Wine colors are trending now, by the way.
The color looks so luscious on brunettes, but it all depends on appearance and mood really. So it’ll look different on every girl.
It’s one of my favourite stains actually. I use it quite often, as it suits both everyday and evening makeup.
It comes in a stick which you can find by many famous brands now, such as, for example, Clinique.
The sharpened tip features an easy application and precise outline. It’s especially good for bright and vibrant colors like this one.
It’s a twist-up crayon, no sharpener required which is very convenient.
Lip Balm properties
Some of you would expect some lip caring properties from the product, because the manufacturer called it a lip balm. Well, you may forget about it. It does moisturize your lips and contains natural ingredients. But the main thing here is staying power and color.
So if you need to heal your chapped and cracked lips, you should buy a real lip balm.
Pigmentation and wear time. The product is well-pigmented. It gets absorbed into my lips making them seem tattooed. The stain is very long-lasting, it lasts very well through eating and drinking.
The product imparts a glossy and vibrant finish that gets matte during the day in case you haven’t reapplied it.
By the end of the day it fades and becomes a lip tint giving my lips a natural look with a light color.
It’s beautiful! Every girl will find something for her, as the product comes in many shades beginning from deep red to natural.
Just applied balm stain
After some time. Matte effect
By the end of the day
Smell and taste. The Balm Stain smells minty due to peppermint in the ingredients. My lips feel tingling, thus looking fuller.
The scent is not for everyone. As for me, it’s not off-putting. I think that it’s worse when the product smells sugary sweet. I’ve got to say that the taste is a tad sweet, I don’t know why
Cons: The main con here is that when the product vanishes, it dries your lips out.
I notice that when I’m outside generally. You should reapply it from time to time to prevent dry lips.
It’s not irritating for me, but it could be for someone.
Girls, I’m glad I bought it and want to pick up some more shades.
You really can buy quality drugstore products, so try something new.
You shouldn’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money to look great.
Hope you find my review helpful
