Revlon Kissable Balm Stain Review

Monday, April 01, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ I am someone who just loves tinted lip balms and/or lip stains, so when Revlon announced the lip balm stains, I was excited. After using them for around a month (I'm sorry for the delay), this is what I have to say about them. 


Crayon-like packaging

The lip stains come in a pencil or crayon appearance that you can twist up at the bottom. Jackpot! I hate it if I have to sharpen it like the NYX jumbo eye pencils. 

Bright colors to nude everyday colors!

The collection has a variety of colors ranging from nude to bright ones. I bought three out of the bunch because the others are just too bright or brown. 

Moisturizing with a hint of color

When I applied them to my lips, it feels moisturizing up to a point that it's sticky. It has a menthol scent that fades away during application. It doesn't dry out my lips, but the sticky feeling is bit bothersome on my lips. 

Swatch time!

It's really easy to apply this on the lips. All you have to do is just draw them like you would an ordinary crayon. Here are the colors on the back of my hand and on my lips.

Here is how I look like without any lip color. I swear, my lips are losing its pigments every day, hahaha.. I can't get away with just lip balm lately.


Out of the three I bought, Honey is the one that I like using for everyday makeup because it has rose tint to it.


Precious is the lightest shade out of the three I bought. It looks like a very pale brown when it's applied on my lips. Maybe I'll try applying a pink lip tint and coat this over it.


Smitten is my second favorite since it makes my complexion brighter and more awake. It has a slight purple undertone to it, I think.



It survives the wipe!

After swatching all these, I rubbed it Smitten off my lips. Simply because it would be weird to have such bright lips at home while I'm doing laundry, hahaha.. I rubbed it quite vigorously, but the stain won't come off. Nice!

Conclusion

For the price (SGD $ 11.00 at Nuance Watsons Duty Free Changi), I would surely love to buy more of the other colors. It is practical because all I have to do is just apply it and voila! Moisture and color at the same time. However, it can be a little sticky, but I don't mind too much.

There are a slight difference in staining power since some colors are just pretty bright and vivid. The shade Precious and Smitten, for example, showed different staining power. Smitten is just more visible since it is a brighter shade, whereas Precious is not too bright. 

Have you purchased any of these lip stains? Which colors are you eyeing? Let me know in the comments below. Until then, I'll see you later~
