Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain...

...or as I like to call them, Those Really Excellent Fat Pencils From Revlon.  Perusing Boots, as one does of a Tuesday lunchtime, I alighted upon the new lip product from Revlon, hot on the heels of the Lip Butters.  Not for no reason have these Kissable Balm Stains been compared to the Clinique Chubby Sticks (which are £8 more expensive and about 10 times less good IMHO).  They are basically the same. WITH ONE DIFFERENCE.  These, as the name suggests, are a balm masquerading as a stain.  Or a stain masquerading as a balm.  A stain with a mask on?  A balm in a wig?  I don't know.  What I do know is this: they are phenomenal.  Truly excellent products.  I had some Advantage Points to kill so I snapped up two, Rendez-vous, a coral (see above), and Romantic, a cherry red (see below).

They good on smoothly, feel comfortable, not hugely hydrating but nor are they drying, and they last ALL. DAY.  Through eating and drinking and swearing and kissing the sky.  I kid you not.  I'm amazed.  I want more colours (although I think I already have the best two).  Also, they are fun to apply, like you're drawing on yourself with a chubby crayon, and who doesn't love that?  Revlon are knocking them out the park at the moment.  I take my hat (bobble) off to them.


  1. Great post - I've been eyeing these up for a while. I love me a good coraly-orange colour so might have to give Rendez-vous a try!

  2. Love them. I have Rendezvous and Cherish!!


  3. I need to try these.
