Review/ Swatches: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Swatches




I have found my newest obsession! I classify obsession as buying 4 or more of the colors in a collection.  Earlier this year it was the Revlon Lip Butters now it's the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. It is a lightweight lip stain in a moisturized lip balm.  I first spotted these balm stains at my local Target, I was intrigued a balm that is a stain? Interesting.  At that point the whole display was full, so I only bought 2 thinking I'll come back to purchase the rest if I like it.  I went home, tried it, LOVE IT! What sold me was the smoothness of the product.  My lips are very dry ALL THE TIME, it bugs me. When I applied this product my lips didn't feel dry and the color was just the right amount for me since I don't like to wear a lot of color on my lips.  I would describe the color payoff as soft some give a little more color than the rest and some are very very sheer (you will see what I am referring to when you look at the swatches below).   It's a great little lip product for the fast, on the go product where you just need a little bit of color, great to be paired with a smokey eye.

Over the weekend I spent half of my Saturday afternoon running around town looking for the colors that I wanted which at the moment is  9 out of the 12 colors (I passed on the reds and am waiting for Sweetheart to come in the mail). Found all the colors at Rite Aid and what made it even better they were 40%!  YESS!


Here are the colors I picked up along with the corresponding swatch of color.  As you can see the colors are very sheer and soft.  I did not add flash so you can see what the colors look like in natural daylight. Ps. My skintone is a MAC NC40 - NC42 depending on the season... similar to Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez.

For the summer I like a coral/orange lip, Rendezvous is perfect for that. This shot was taken indoors with a daylight bulb.
