Revlon Kissable Balm Stains | Review

I know, I know! I'm very late to the Balm Stain party but its fashionable to be late, right?

I got my very first Balm Stain from my parents this Christmas and since then my collection of them has been growing and growing, I now have 5!


Honey, Lovesick, Rendezvous, Cherish and Darling

HONEY

RENDEZVOUS

LOVESICK

CHERISH (more pink in person)

DARLING

This product is really moisturising and is a joy to apply to my lips. It feels like a lip balm but gives the colour of lipstick, not all the pigmentation of a lipstick but close enough!

It has a minty smell and taste which I quite like, it doesn't linger though if that worries you.

The staying power is great, I find if I want the finish of the lipstick all the time I have to reapply every few hours. However it leaves a lovely stain on your lips for a good few more hours than that. I love this about it as it gives you almost two ways to wear it once the finish has worn off!

I completely adore these and they would have featured in my Best of 2012 but I've only had my first one since Christmas Day.

These have quickly become my favourite lip products and I'm so glad I purchased so many before my Spending Ban!

These are £7.99 and I think they are completely worth it.

Thanks for reading,
Shona x

    1. Its a gorgeous orange but its not in your face, they are buildable as well. I don't know if they are still £5 in boots but I'd check out boots for them because the offer might still be on :) x
