Recently I picked up some of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains from CVS. They were on sale 75% off from the beauty clearance event and came out to a little over $2 each! I have heard and seen a lot of these stains being used on Youtube and blogs so I decided to give them a shot.
First I will say that I love the packaging. I am a complete sucker for something that looks cute and is easy to store in my bag. These chunky lip pencils come in so many gorgeous colors and are the perfect size for any cosmetic bag. They do not sharpen but rather twist up like a chap stick. I love that they remind me of the huge lip balms I used to get as a little kid.
I purchased 3 difference colors and of the 3 the nude one is my favorite. It is the most perfect shade of nude I have found at a drugstore to date. I was highly impressed with the color pay off as well. Most lip stains I have sampled still tend to be a little sheer but this one gave a beautiful, soft nude color.
I was also surprised by how moisturizing they are as lip stains. Most stains tend to dry your lips out because they lack moisture, which is why they are able to stay so long on your lips. These balm stains are minty and very hydrating on your lips.
They are easy apply and not a hassle to carry around. I love this product and definitely plan on repurchasing it in the future!
