As promised before, here’s a quick review and swatch of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the shade Honey. I have been intrigued by the JBKBS ever since it was released, but the range of colour never really impressed me. Don’t get me wrong, there are some gorgeous shades, but there aren’t too many that would suit my skin tone and is okay for day-to-day wear. Honey is the closest thing to that.
Honey is a muted pink with a hint of mauve. It’s a perfect everyday colour. It has pretty good pigmentation, and applied very smoothly. It did not accentuate any dry patches or lines on my lips, but it left my lips super dry. Sad day. It was to the point where the skin on my lips started peeling off chunks by chunks – gross I know. The gloss was gone pretty fast, around 1-2 hours, but my lips were stained for another 2-3 hours, so the wear time is pretty good.
Bottom line: Loved the colour, super sad that it dried my lips like no tomorrow. I think I am a bigger fan of the Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm!
Have you tried both Revlon and Covergirl’s jumbo lip balms? Which one do you prefer?

Another quick review/swatch for Revlon Lip Butter! This time it’s for Berry Smoothie, a very wearable pink with subtle glitters. It is very moisturizing, just like the other lip butters I’ve tried. Pigmentation wise, it’s pretty sheer, which fits more with what Revlon claims for their lip butters. « Read the rest of this entry »

According to Revlon, the lip butters are “buttery balm with beautiful shiny colour to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips”. I find that in general, they are hydrating. Pigmentation on the other hand, really depends on which shade you get.
Raspberry Pie has astounding pigmentation, it is even more pigment than some lipsticks I own. It is a gorgeous mid-tone berry pink, but also has a hint of fuchsia. It is also longer wearing than some other lip butters I have tried. It applies so smoothly, it just glides on my lips! And I get great colour payoff with this shade with just one swipe. « Read the rest of this entry »
