Product Review: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous

Hey cuties! I've never been one to wear anything other than lipbalm on my lips, but something came over me and I bought this Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in probably the brightest color they have, Rendezvous. It's this orange-ish, coral color that screamed summer. There is a lot of hype around this product and heard a lot of beauty gurus on youtube talk about it.

The packaging in this product is kind of interesting because it's not like other lipsticks. It comes with this plastic tube and the tip of the bullet is sort of cone-shaped which makes it easy to apply onto your lips. It's longer than a lipstick so it's not as convenient to shove in your push, but not by much.

I love the formula of this lipstain because it's slightly moisturizing, light, and it doesn't settle into the lines in your lips. You can either apply a small amount for a hint of color or build it up to get full vibrancy. You don't necessarily need a lip balm along with this, but I find that adding one makes it creamier. But it does have a minty scent, so if you're allergic to perfumes in makeup, then it's something to be aware of. I actually like the smell, so it's not a problem for me.

This picture doesn't really give this product justice because it's a lot more vibrant in real life. Though I like to have a light hand on anything that's very pigmented, the color is a lot more orange like you just got done eating a popsicle.

The lasting power for this product is amazing for something at the drugstore. I found that it lasts about 8+ hours and the swatch on my hand stayed there until later on the next day. The color fades very tastefully and sometimes looks even better than when you first applied it. I love how it lasts even when I eat, drink, and go throughout my day. 

This line is very hyped about, but I find that this is the only shade that might go with my skin tone. I feel like it's more aimed toward the warmer tones, and that's not me. ;) But if they ever come out with more, I'll look into buying some.

-Long lasting
-Build able color
-Smells like mint
-Slightly moisturizing
-Doesn't settle into cracks
-Fads nicely

-Wish they had more colors

So what do you guys think? Are you a lippy person? I went to the store and got another lip product yesterday and I'm contemplating on whether or not I should get another one today. Maybe I'm turning into a lipstick addict? I don't know, I see a lot of people with a wide range of colors and I felt a little behind. (I didn't have any at the moment, only lipbalm). Well, it's a working progress. But you can count on another lipstick review soon, that's for sure. See you guys next time! XD
