I was super excited when I found the brand new display for these at the drugstore yesterday. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Pencils are brand new chunky lip pencils that not only add color and moisture but act as a lip stain, leaving behind long-wearing, natural looking color. These are going to be the “next big thing” just like how the Revlon Lip Butters were huge when they were released. These lip pencils are exactly like the more expensive Clinique Chubby Lip Pencils except these are drugstore available and they also leave behind a gorgeous stain of color. To see photographs and swatches of Sweetheart, the color I picked out,
Sweetheart is a bright strawberry pink shade. These pencils are incredible. I want to immediately go back and purchase every single shade these come in (but I’m not Bill Gates). These leave behind a beautiful “stain” that looks natural and leaves color behind. I love lip stains because they are very natural looking and leave behind a wash of color as if you had been sucking on a popsicle. This one is very moisturizing and hydrating and not too thin or too thick. It smells minty and refreshing and isn’t sticky at all. The formula is a dream and the color will last you all day long. What more can I ask for?
The above swatch is the pencil applied heavily. The great thing about this product is that you can swipe it on for semi-sheer color or layer it for more opaque, intense coverage.
I love this shade because it’s bright and cheerful and goes with anything. I love bright strawberry pink shades for my lips, and this one is no exception. Also, when I tried to remove the product with makeup remover, I was left with this:
This is exactly how I expect a lip stain to perform. I want it to leave behind a very natural looking “stain” of color on wherever I apply it so that I can put it on once per day and be done with it.
Overall: This stain pencil is perfection. The formula is beautiful, the color is bright and feminine, and I want to own every single shade they have out. Revlon had quite a few shades in the display, definitely ten or more different shades, so there is something for everyone.
