Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

It’s been months since the last time I publish a post about lipstick… oh well, that was also the last time I bought a new one. I avoided buying makeup particularly lipstick for a few months since I want to use all that I’ve got before buying for more but I just can’t resist this one. It seems like I am on a quest for a red lipstick forever and seeing this made me purchase right there and then. I got this lipstick from my friend who sells authentic US brands cosmetics so I am confident of its authenticity.

Will this reign my humble makeup stash? We’ll find out…

[Update 10/04/14]: I added two shades to my collection, rendezvous and honey. 

Product Description:
It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood. 


Packaging and Appeal. Instead of the typical lipstick tube/barrel, this product comes in retractable tube with chubby crayon appearance. Sharpener is not required though. I love that the body of the packaging is designed depending on the color of the lipstick. With this, storing and using this at a later time is easier. You never have to check the bottom of the tube to find out the color.

Scent. The lipstick doesn’t have overpowering smell. It’s a bit minty and it gives a minty feeling on the lips as well. I love it!

  • Romantic - Sheer red that is not too bright, nor too dark. I was hoping for this to be the classic red I have been looking for but it isn’t. Maybe if it doesn’t have sheer/glossy finish, this will definitely end my quest for that dream red lipstick. Can be used during the day.
  • Rendezvous - Deep coral. I think this is my most favorite among the three shades I got.
  • Honey - Mauvey-pink and one of my MLBB shades. Sometimes, I notice that this becomes a bit dark on me... maybe because of the natural color of my lips. Nevertheless, this is a lovely shade ideal for everyday use.

Texture. The texture of this lip product is equally amazing. It is not drying on the lips nor give that sticky feeling no matter how thick you put on. It doesn’t even give that gooey feeling even after eating. These lipsticks have sheer finish without the shimmer.

Staying Power. Staying power is around two to three hours without eating. After a meal, the color tends to fade into something which usually requires re-application.

Ingredients. Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, BIS-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Squalane, BIS-Behenyl/Isostearyl/Phytosteryl Dimer Dilinoleyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Polyethylene, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Triisostearin, Diisostearyl Malate, Cera Microcrystallina ((Microcrystalline Wax) Cire Microcristalline), Trimethylolpropane Triethylhexanoate

Price. I got this for Php 380 and I think it’s a good deal already. Beauty counters in malls sell this for around Php 500.

Availability. This lipstick can be bought at Revlon Beauty Counters.

Would you buy this again?
Yes! I wanted to get other shades particularly the pink ones.

If you are looking for a lipstick that is not drying or heavy on the lips and doesn’t feel sticky, then this one is for you. It is available in various pretty colors and can be bought from various Revlon beauty counters nationwide.
