Review & Swatches: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

Hey Beauty Lovers,

So I’m absolutely loving Revlon lip products at the moment. I received a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in my trade with Lola’s Charms and I bought two more when I was In Dubai. So I thought, hey,Ā  today’s post should be a review and swatches on my new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in 040 Rendezvous, 010 Darling, and 025 Valentine.

Revlon_BalmStain_Review

If you don’t already know these famous babies act like a long wearing stain but with the comfort of a lip balm and the shiny razzle dazzle of a lip gloss.The formula on these guys are amazing. You can apply one coat for a subtle hint of shining color or built up to an opaque glossy coating. The packaging is nice too. Its a twist top so no need for sharpening and the large crayon size makes for a super easy and mess free application.

Revlon_BalmStain_Review_Swatches_Rendezvous040 Rendezvous: Is a vibrant warm orange which is super on trend for this summer. It’s super silky smooth, moisturizing and very comfortable on the lips. It can be worn more sheer or built up like in the swatch for a glossy wash of orange juiciness. It lasts for a good four hours on me plus more with its beautiful staining capabilities.

Revlon_BalmStain_Review_Swatches_Darling010 Darling is a cold toned lavender purple. This is probably the sheerest of the three but it still packs a punch. It can appear very subtle yet vibrant, a great way to rock the pastel and lavender lip trend that is oh so popular at the moment. Again it lasts for a good four hours plus staining. Although, this one doesn’t leave as much of an intense stain. Regardless, its still a beautiful shade in a fantastic formula.

Revlon_BalmStain_Review_Swatches_Sweetheart025 Sweetheart is a loevly bright pink/magenta with a slight blue undertone. Just like the others the formula is silky smooth and moisturizing. This one also lasts for many hours and leaves the most gorgeous pink flush on the lips once the glossiness disappears.

THE VERDICT

10/10 for Revlon’s Balm Stains. They are fab for warm summer days when you just want a sheer coating but also hold there own when it comes to longevity and buildable opacity. They are definitely long lasting with a super high gloss finish. Plus they are so moisturizing unlike many long wearing lip products and stains. I for sure want to pick up a few more when I’m in Cali this summer. I have to say I’m super impressed with Revlon, I just wish they had it here in Copenhagen :(

Have any of you tried Revlon Kissable Balm stains? What shades would you recommend?

Review & Swatches: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Hello Lovelies,

It’s another bright and sunny summer day here in Copenhagen so I thought it would be rather fitting to share with you my new favorite summer lip products: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters.

Revlon_ColorBurst_LipButters_Review&SwatchesI only have three of these bad boys and oh man oh man do I want more. I’ll definitely be stalking up on these when I head to Cali for summer holiday. If you don’t already, no these little guys are super moisturizing sheer lipsticks. There almost like a lip balm with a powerful color punch. They smell delightful and feel so great on the lips. They are an easy and hassle free everyday lip color. They don’t bleed or sit on the dry patches or lines on your lips. They give a more sheer coverage then lipstick but by no means are they a tinted lip balm. You can actually build up quite an opaque color with just a few swipes.

Revlon_ColorBurst_LipButters_Review&Swatches_1I received Sweet Tart and Tutti Frutti in my trade with Lola’s Charms and picked up Wild Watermelon when I was in Dubai. I should have picked up more but I was with my boyfriend and he can only handle about 5 minutes in any beauty supply store so I was rushed!! haha. Well to be honest it’s not like I need more lip products but these are just amazing and like nothing I own in my collection.

Well lets get into the review and swatches.

Revlon_ColorBurst_LipButters_Review&Swatches_SweetTartSweet Tart is a vibrant pink. The swatch is one swipe so it is rather sheer but can be built up to a rather intense color opacity.

Revlon_ColorBurst_LipButters_Review&Swatches_WildWatermelonWild Watermelon is super. It’s a redish pink and looks really fab on the lips. Again this is one swipe so it may appear sheer but a few swipes on the lips and wow oh wow do you have some bright colorful kissable looking lips.

Revlon_ColorBurst_LipButters_Review&Swatches_TuttiFruttiTutti Frutti is a warm orange. I think this is a fab color for summer and even fall. It’s a great alternative for you girls who have been wanting to try the orange color trend without over doing it or diving into those opaque vibrant oranges. This is still vibrant and packs a punch but you can wear it extra sheer for a tint of orange goodness.

THE VERDICT

10/10 for these babies. They do just what they claim, they moisturize and add a subtle to buildable color coverage. They are highly pigmented for this type of product and wear for a pretty long time. They’re just so perfect for warm summer days, easy to apply and mess free šŸ˜€ And the packaging is great, the color of the tube represents the color of the product so its super easy to see the colors amongst all my other lippies (that is if your a lip junkie like me, then you no what I’m talking about!!!)

I would definitely suggest these to everyone, plus they have sooooo many shades to choose from. If your looking for opaque matte colors these aren’t for you but for a subtle and ethereal color on the lips then you should go for it. Plus since they’re drugstore they are rather affordable. All my US readers can purchase these at any drugstore, target or Walmart. For my Brits you can get these at boots, unfortunately for my Danes they aren’t sold in Denmark :( But i think Ive seen them on amazon and ebay.

Have any of you tried the Revlon Lip Butters? I would love to hear about your experience.

Favorite Coral Lipsticks for Spring & Summer

Hey there Beauty Lovers,

So yesterday I posted my favorite orange lipsticks and today I’ve got my favorite coral lipsticks for spring and summer: Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Juicy Melons, Mac Betty Bright (limited edition, Archie’s Girl Collection), Mac HibiscusĀ (limited edition, Surf Baby Collection) and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tar in Grandma.

Favorite_Coral_LipsticksHere’s a little close up of all the lippies.

Favorite_Coral_Lipsticks_ToofacedJuicyMelonsToo Faced Juicy Melons Is probably my favorite coral at the moment. It leans more on the pink side of coral yet not totally pink and has a super high shine finish. Its super hydrating, creamy, pigmented and easy to apply.

Coral_Lipsticks_BettyBright

Mac Betty Bright is the newest edition to my coral family and this is my little gem. Its a bright vibrant coral with pink undertones. It’s easy to apply, very pigmented and has a cream finish.

Coral_Lipsticks_MacHibiscusMac Hibiscus I got as a hand me down from my sister and I’m so glad she was willing to part with it because it’s a really out there and vibrant orange coral with small shimmer particles. It has a cremesheen finish, is highly pigmented and hydrating.

favorite_Coral_Lipsticks_OCCAnd lastly I couldn’t exclude my beloved OCC Lip Tar in Grandma. It’s a true vibrant coral, lasts for hours, highly pigmented (a little goes a super long way with these guys), and dries matte yet doesn’t feel drying.

Here’s a look of all the shades swatched side by side.
