I finally got my hands on Revlon's NEW Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains.Today was the official Canadian launch of these anticipated lip products.
I originally saw them advertised in the Rexall flyer, but decided to go to Wal-mart because they were retailing for $8.46. Rexall typically tends to be a little more expensive than Wal-Mart. However it does have some higher end brands.
Unfortunately, when I went to Wal-Mart they did not receive the shipment so off to Rexall I went.
I ended up picking up the color Honey for $9.99. The shade is a beautiful mauve rosy pink color.
I usually gravitate toward more neutral colours such as Honey. I think this colour is perfect for everyday wear.
When I first opened the cap I noticed a minty scent. Nothing overbearing, but I kind of expected to feel a tingling sensation when I applied it to my lips. However, I did feel how smoothly this product glided on! It literally applies like a lip balm and is very moisturizing. The product is also glossy, which I like.
What I love the most is that it DOES leave a stain. So even after the colour wears off, there is a beautiful tint left on your lips- kind of like you just drank Kool-Aid or ate a Popsicle :)
I actually really enjoy the packaging of this product! I love how it looks like a jumbo crayon. It's really neat. I also like how the bottom is tractable so you can twist the product up and down. Essentially, this means no sharpening!
The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balms Stains have been compared to Clinique's Chubby Sticks and Tarte's Lip Stains. However, they are just a fraction of the cost of the higher end brands. I am definitely going to purchase more colors. :)
