Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain *Review*

Revlon Just Bitten Balms

These hydrating, colour popping, juicy lip treats, are just that. A real treat. They almost have a menthol taste, with a slight tingle when applied. Despite being very pigmented, with strong (and very long-lasting) colour, they shine like a subtle gloss, with no stickiness.

They are absolutely fantastic! You wind them up, so you have ages of stick in the tubes, and you don't need to apply a load to get a great, strong colour. Perfect for day or night, and so easy to apply, I don't always use a mirror.

The three colours I invested in are: 040 Rendezvous (a bright coral/orange), 015 Cherish Devotion (a beautiful baby pink) and 005 Crush Begun (a deep, sexy plum). I have had them all for a good few months, normally one is in at least one of my handbags, so they are very well used. They seem to be the gift that keeps on giving, in style and substance. Despite multiple applications, they look barely used; a definite investment.

005, 040 and 015

Here is a swatch of the three colours:


As you can see, despite them having a shiny finish, they come across highly pigmented, I was surprised... from the look of them I expected them to be far more sheer, but I am very happy with the results, in every colour.

Here is what they look like on ladies:

015 - Cherish Desire

040 - Rendezvous

005 - Crush Begun

At a reasonable price (around £8 from Boots etc), these lip-loving lovelies are the perfect little steal to keep your lips kissable, hydrated and beautifully bright. Perfect for a cheeky Valentine's kiss... or two.

Hugs and Kisses, Love Lauren xx


  1. I have Romantic (I believe that's its name, it's the red shade) and Honey, which is pretty much my lip colour but just a little more pink and better. I'm addicted to these balm stains, I want them all!!


    1. I know they are sooo gorgeous, i'm tempted to buy some more shades to be honest! I will need to check both of yours out when i'm next at a Revlon counter for sure! I'll let you know if I buy any and do more posts, or feel free to follow my blog :)
