First Impressions of the Revlon Just Kissable Balm Stain

Ahh yes they are finally here, the much hyped Revlon Kissable Balm Stains. I was lucky enough to win one off Priceline's Twitter, yay! These balm stains contain 2.7grams of product and they retail for $17.95. Not all of the colours have been released here sadly :( no Rendezvous (bright orange) for  us. Atleast there is ebay!


The shade is a bright pink called Sweetheart :D

When I received this in the mail the first thing that struck me was the very strong mentholated/peppermint smell. I am not going to lie, I don't like the smell in the tube, it reminds me of medicine. However, it is not noticeable once it is on the lips and it is very comfortable to wear even if you dislike the scent.


The top swatch is swiped once. The bottom swatch is to full opacity.


Swatched on the lips.

So far I am impressed :D I like how they fade on the lips in quite a flattering way. They are very easy to take in your bag and reapply too. The shine lasts a couple of hours on me and the stain lasts up to 6 hours on me. I think these could definitely become my summer essential! I am going to pick up these in a couple of other colours :)

Edit: I forgot to mention these are NOT kissable at ALL. My boyfriend has big pink lip marks on his cheek, like some kind of cartoon character.

  3. I went to Priceline and swatched all of them the the other day, they're all so gorgeous but the price really puts me off. What is the name of this shade you have? xo

  20. Love the colour on you. Do you find them drying? I'm reading so many mixed reviews about whether they dry out your lips or not.
