Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

Hello lovelies. Thought I'd share my thoughts on Revlon's new balm stains. I've seen quite a few posts on these floating around and quite liked the concept behind them so thought I would check them out myself. After having a mooch around the Revlon counter I ended up with the shade Honey. I picked this up over a month ago now so bit late on the post front.
Revlon's new balm stains look very similar to Clinique's Chubby Sticks - in other words the packaging is rocking the chubby crayon look. I quite like this as it's different to your standard lipstick/balm packaging. Although some may find this a bit too bulky. By twisting the bottom you are able to push up more product. Revlon's balm stains have a minty/dental floss scent to them, but I struggle to notice this scent once applied to my lips as the scent quickly fades. Due to the crayon tip of the balm stain this product is so easy to apply especially if you're on the go and want to apply some colour quickly. It can be quite low maintenance in that respect. I found this product to have great pigmentation which is easy to add to and build depending on the look you're going for.  

On application these balm stains offer a lot of colour and a slight glossy finish. It feels very soft and moisturising when applying, not like some lip products which can feel quite dry. The lovely thing about this product is the colour really does stay on your lips. Although the gloss fades the colour/stain sticks around for hours.
The shade I picked up - Honey - is a rosy pink/nude shade. In my opinion it leaves quite a natural dark pink finish when on the lips, so when the stain does fade it still looks lovely on. I'm not too sure what the other shades would look like on the lips after an hour or two. 

I'm really impressed with this product. I love the longevity and the colour pay off that you can achieve with these lip stains. I think they're affordable and great if you want a bit of colour but don't want to have to keep applying every ten minutes. I love how soft this feels  when applying on to the lips. But once on the lips, after a while I did find my lips felt quite dry, but as the stain stays on well I just popped a lip balm over the top which did the trick for me. Overall I think the colour pay off and longevity is brilliant for the price.
