These babies caught my eye while I was browsing Watsons with my mom last Sunday. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are like little chubby crayons, much different from their previous lip stain line, which were more like felt-tip markers.
I swatched all the available shades there, but didn’t bother to look at the names, but I am quite certain these are the names, L-R by row: (1) Rendezvous, Smitten, (2) Darling, Sweetheart, (3) Charm, Precious, (4) Cherish, Lovesick. I’ll check again, though.
These are heavyweight stains. After swatching, I went around stores looking at clothes (of course, careful not to stain them), and they didn’t budge. The gloss wore away pretty quickly, but the colors stayed put.
I had to wipe these off to swatch some Shu Uemura items, and there were a few leftover stains, particularly from the two bottom shades. The product’s name—Kissable—has just been brought to light.
One thing I like about these are that they are retractable—no sharpening and (in theory) no wasted product! The formulation is oddly creamy for a stain, but it’s a welcome sort of oddness. Application was easy enough, and as you can see, the pigmentation is quite gorgeous.
These are Php 575 a pop, which is reasonable if you’re going to get just one. However, the shades are quite wearable in general, so you have to do a bit of weeding out and deciding which one you’d wear the most.
I didn’t get any of them (so I guessed the names from online swatches), because I knew I would be spending on Shu Uemura products that day. I think I have to come back for them some time. Thankfully, they don’t seem to be limited edition items, so I can wait a little bit before making another beauty purchase.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are available at most drugstores (i.e. Watsons, PCX, Landmark, etc) in the Philippines.
Counter Swatch is where I put my impulse swatch shenanigans.
