revlon just bitten kissable balm stains review

This is my second review, but I did recently receive a few more colours of this. I am in love with these and have neglected every other lip product I have!

I have three colours 015, 020 and 055.

015 (Cherish) Is a pastel pink shade. I love it because it adds some very light pigment to my lips. It is buildable but doesn’t have the same lasting ability as Lovesick. This might be because after a whole it lightens to the actual shade of my lips.

020 (Lovesick) Is by far my favourite. It is heavily pigmented and lasts for days. I use it whenever I’m looking for a fun but statement lip (ALL THE TIME)

055 (Adore) Is a fantastic shade of maroon. It has a warm tone ad is speckled with gold shimmer. It can also be built up and is perfect for both day and night wear, dependant on your skin tone.

Most of the colours work for me because I don’t have a lot of pigment in my lips. Why does this matter? Well, if your lips are a darker colour, these semi-translucent colours won’t show up as much on your lips because your natural colour is stronger than the colour of the balm. My lips however, are nearly the same colour as my skin tone. Whenever I apply something, there is no base colour to show through the balm. How do I solve this? Unfortunately swatching on your hand won’t often help. Just always try to consider how dark your lips are when buying something to prevent any surprises!

I use these interchangeably. I use all of them in the day, it’s just a toss up which one I’ll choose on a given day (or which one is in my handbag ;))

Below are the swatches. On my skin 015 and 020 are fairly similar.
