Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvouz

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain looks like the drugstore’s answer to Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. I purchased the shade Rendezvouz in eBay as I was too impatient to wait for them to be stocked here in Australia.

What Revlon says

It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood.

Packaging

The Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains come packaged very much like Clinique’s Chubby Sticks – chubby crayon like packaging with the colour of the crayon representative of the actual shade. It doesn’t requie a sharpener either as it is also a twist up and down pencil. The difference here is that Clinique’s Chubby Sticks lid is a reflective silver which is great to turn into a make-shift mirror on the go. Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains just have the flat swatch colour on the lid.

Product

Rendezvouz is a coral leaning orange shade, which is nice for the upcoming Spring and Summer.

It packs a punch! In the arm swatch picture, that is just one swipe.

Very pigmented and you can definitely build the colour up should you want a more opaque and/or brighter colour. It goes on quite glossy but it’s not sticky. It does leave a nice tint after a couple of hours however it does dry out your lips. I find that it starts to fade after 2-3 hours, with a nice faint tint lingering til around the 5-6 hours mark.

How does it compare to Clinique’s Chubby Sticks? In my opinion, the Clinique Chubby Sticks keep my lips moisturised and doesn’t dry them out. However the Chubby Sticks don’t last as long as they colours don’t leave a tint on my lips thus more reapplying.

If I were heading out and wanted something that was low maintenance, I’d grab the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain. If it was just a quick dash to the shops or lunch, I might opt for the Clinique Chubby Sticks.

Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop

Packaging

The packaging is gorgeous. I absolutely love it. The whole Colorburst range has the quilted packaging somewhere on the product.

The cap is representative of the shade of the lip butter which makes for easy picking and it twists up and down like a lipstick.

Product

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter is a softening and smoothing lip balm that also features a touch of colour. It contains a combination of mango, shea and coconut butters to naturally soothe and nourish lips while also leaving a colour of medium coverage with a high shine finish.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop

I think Temptalia hit the nail on the head with the description of Lollipop – bright, fuchsia-pink with iridescent purple-fuchsia shimmer and cool, blue undertones.

It has some slip to it which means it glides on easily when applying. There’s no tugging on your lips at all.

Compared to some other shades in the line, Lollipop provides opaque coverage. It is crazy pigmented. In the swatch below, it’s just one swipe.

It feels like a lip balm when worn. My lips did not feel dry after wearing it.

It has a very faint vanilla smell.

And of course, a whole face shot. This is with just my day face moisturiser and Lollipop. Nothing else on mah face.

Look of the Day – Corals


The lovely sunshine today meant that I was ready to bring out the corals. I miss summer! I’m so sick of the gloomy weather & we’re not even entering winter yet lol :( Please ignore my out of control eyebrows at the moment. An influx of uni assignments has kept me from seeing my eyebrow waxer.


For this coral look I used:
Mary Kay Signature Eye Primer
MAC Coral Crepe paint pot
MAC Deckchair pigment
MAC Electric Coral pigment
MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow


On my cheeks, I wore MAC Hipness and to tie it all together, Revlon Peach colorburst lipstick :)

5 Days Of Nude Lips Round-Up

I really enjoyed doing this series & I think I’ll continue to do them for various items in my collection – it allows me to use a different item everyday.

The 5 Days of Nude Lips series was about showcasing my nude lipsticks. I am a big fan of nude lips especially when they’re paired with a dark, sultry smokey eye.

Day 1, we got to know a permanent member of MAC’s line – Hue.

The coveted MAC 3N made an appearance on day 2 of the series.

At the half-way mark, I changed it up & featured Revlon Soft Nude colorburst lipstick. Definitely a great drugstore gem.

Day 4 of the series saw us back at MAC with The Faerie Glen – gorgeous name, gorgeous nude.

To end the series, I featured MAC Honeylove (a least favourite of mine lol).

Finally – a comparison swatch of the nudes I’ve showcased:

5 Days Of Nude Lips – Day 3

A drugstore find – Revlon Soft Nude colorburst lipstick.

In contrast to the previous two nudes I’ve featured, Soft Nude is a peachy kind of nude with just a slight touch of pink.


I love the packaging of these Revlon colorburst lipsticks. On the outside, it’s quilted black on two sides & there’s even Revlon imprinted on the lipstick bullet.


Like with my previous experience with the colorburst range, Soft Nude glides on nicely with no tugging at all. It applies sheerly but it is buildable. It also doesn’t feel too ‘heavy’ on your lips either! However, I do find that with this particular shade, it can get a bit dry so I recommend moisturising & exfoliating them peckers before applying this shade.


You can purchase the Revlon colorburst range at your local drugstore. For the Aussies, I found these in Priceline but they’re also available at Target, Kmart, Big W and selected chemists. They will set you back $6-8usd/$23.95aud.
