Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

I finally have my hands on the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain! The moment I saw these balm stains on blogs and youtube; I have been crazy in love because this is how I love my lip product - light-weight, gives a long staying tint, and moisturizing. It took a while to reach the Philippine market, but I got it the moment I saw this on the Revlon counter. I wanted to add it to my August favorites, but I thought of saving this for September as I haven't used this as often yet.

The shade I have is in Smitten 030, which is a deep berry which I really love because it's very flattering on fair skin. I believe this will match all skin tones just fine as long as you're into berry lip colors. It appears dark berry on the stick, and I was a little hesitant to get this first, but the moment I swatched it; I just fell in love with the color. It has a slight minty scent and tingle that I actually love. It goes on smoothly, very easy to apply, and is very much buildable if you want a more intense shade. You can apply as much as you want to add more color but the balm doesn't build up, which is just amazing.

It's very pigmented, balmy, and provides a good amount of moisture to the lips without looking too glossy or greasy. The staying power is amazing as it lasts all day. After the balm wears off it leaves this natural stain on the lips that don't transfer and look like you just ate a cherry popsicle. It works like a balm so it's not very opaque but the color pay off of this product is unbelievable. No more dry lips while using this lip product. The only time I needed to reapply this was after eating just to add more gloss to my lips, but the color stays on really good.

Has anyone of you seen the Once Upon A Time TV show? Ginnifer Goodwin plays as Snow White and I love her flushed winter look a lot. She has these berry lips, blushing cheeks, and natural eyes! When it's raining and gloomy, this is the look that I wear to add color to my face, and I love how it appears that I am cold :D. The NYX Powder Blush in Silky Rose is a great blush to match with this balm stain if you're going for a Snow White look :D.

My verdict: 5 STARS!!! This is my new favorite lip product and I doubt I will ever get tired using this. It's worth every cent and a must have on every makeup collection!
