Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in #005 Crush



Winter has well and truly arrived in England and so that only means one thing for a beauty crazed girl like myself.  Bold berry lips. I've talked about the Rimmel London Kate Collection offering to the trend but today I want to talk about a new favourite of mine, which I picked up on a whim in Boots.  It's the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in #005 Crush.  

Now, I'm a bit late when it comes to this product, as they've been on the counters for a few months, but I was initially put off by the smell, which is a mixture of peppermint and herbs.  Smell aside, this product is pretty good.  The packaging is much the same as Clinique's Chubby Stick but the products differ in that Revlon's is a stain as well as a moisturising balm.  

The colour is more blackcurrant, making it a purple shade.  It's a sheer product, but it's definitely buildable depending on how bold you want to go.  When you first apply, the product leaves a lovely gloss from the moisturising balm.  Once the balm has worn off, it leaves a subtle stain of colour.  It's also extremely easy to use, I usually use the tip to line my lips and then the side of the crayon to colour them in and build on pigmentation.  I find myself reaching for it more than a lipstick because it is so easy to use and is great for on the go top ups.  I definitely want to pick up 'Lovesick' next which is a bright fuchsia colour.  

Have you tried the Revlon balm stains?
