I went back to the Revlon stand in search of more Matte Balm and Lacquer Balm colours but I couldn’t find any I really wanted. Instead, I spotted this Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush and decided to try it, as I have a lack of deep colours like this.
It is a deep red-purple which looks purple on my hand but red on my lips. It stains the lips, moisturises with the balm and leaves a shine – not as shiny as the lacquer but more than a satin colour. The stain is great. When the shine wears off the colour remains on the lips, which to me, is important. The stain survived through my meal so I was quite pleased!
It has a mint scent which is not too strong so I can live with it. I found it difficult to apply and build colour. It does take some effort but once the stain is there, it stays.
I almost picked up a paler shade, but remained strong! I’m not sure how pale pink would stain on me. If you have tried Honey, please let me know how long it lasts!
