Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick, Cherish & Honey – £5.99

I walked through Boots the other day and saw these. I had no idea they were already available in the UK, it seems that they came here much quicker than the lip butters did! 

I picked up three shades; Lovesick, Cherish and Honey. The packaging is pretty much exactly like the Clinique Chubby sticks; it looks like a crayon with a twisty bit at the bottom. They’re really nice and easy to apply which is something I really like about them. They apply as a glossy balm and leave a stain behind once the gloss fades. Lovesick, especially, has a very vibrant tint. Lovesick is a bright pink, Cherish is a a bubblegum pink and Honey is a dark nude pink. 

I think the price is good and I’ve also found them to be really nice mixed with other lip products, such as the Clinique Instant Light lip perfecter. My only negative would be the smell which is very strange. I think they are supposed to smell like mint but to me they just smell like soil and I’m not a big fan of it. 

Have you got your hands on any of these yet? What are your thoughts?

  5. Great review! I think that I am going to pick these up in the shades Honey, Cherish and Darling. I also really want to get Rendevous (an orange shade), but I doubt that I’ll be brave enough to wear it haha. x

  22. Milly says:

    I love the original Just Bitten stains, so I’m going to have to pick one of these up sometime soon! xx

  23. María says:

    They’re not actually supposed to smell like mint, but like peppermint, which has a similar yet different smell than mint.
    But if I try to smell the soil, I get what you mean. However, it’s peppermint.

    I also have Lovesick, and Sweetheart, which is a bright pink with warm undertones! 🙂

  24. I have lovesick too and rendez-vous (the preachy orange one) and truly love them both. They are such good products!


  25. I have honey but I really want charm if they end up releasing it in Australia.

  30. Cazzaline says:

    Don’t like the smell either, they smell like dental floss!
