Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in Honey and Romantic

I seem to be buying a lot of Revlon recently but that's because they have so many gorgeous products out at the moment. I just can't help myself! I picked up two of their new Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in Honey, a nude-pink, and Romantic, a post-box red. 

The design of the pens is very similar to Clinique's Chubby Sticks, although I can confirm that the formulas feel very different, from scent to texture to colour (I have yet to review my Chubby Stick, but watch this space). The packaging of the Just Bitten Kissables is sleek, with a twist-up design meaning no need for sharpeners. I like the silver cap at the bottom of each stick and the way the colour of the tube denotes the colour of the product inside.

The pens smell extremely minty, which is great if you're a fan of mint, but not so great if you're not! One of my friends was immediately put off by this, but I happen to love mint and so am more than happy to use them based on smell! Revlon describe the pens as 'a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain' that lasts 'hour after hour' (click here for Revlon website). Upon application the formula does indeed feel like a balm, and does feel moisturising. Once the balm feeling has worn off after a couple of hours they definitely do leave behind a stain, which does indeed last for hours. I tend to top-up every so often because the immediate balmy texture is so nice. 

The colour of the tubes gives a very accurate indication of the colour of the product when applied. 'Honey' is a nude pink colour, very flattering for everyday wear, and as such I've been using this one a lot. 'Romantic' is a post-box red colour, easy to apply and easy to blend without any wonky-ness or dreaded uneven lip-lining. I like to blend using my finger to give a more gentle effect. 


I really like these and will continue to use them regularly as part of my make-up routine. I think they're reasonably priced and I reckon they'll last quite a long time before needing to be replaced. 

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are on sale for £5.99 each at Boots (usual price stated as £7.99)


  1. I do love the colour and can testify to the fact that they did look good on you, but as the mint hating friend, alas I will have to wait for your Clinique review before I buy!!
