Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey (top) and Precious (bottom) PHP 575 for two
(according to the last photo)
I was walking around the department store and stopped when I saw a 'buy one take one' sign by Revlon. I've heard of these balm stains before but never thought of purchasing them since I knew I didn't really need yet another lip product, plus I already own a Chubby Stick from Clinique which is similar. But how can anyone pass up such a great deal? These were originally priced PHP 575 each, so I was able to score two for the price of one.
This product is basically a lip balm, but with more pigmentation and longer lasting color. They all have the same minty scent that most lip balms have, quite moisturizing, and also has the same natural finish of an ordinary lip balm. I've noticed that the color slightly turns more vibrant after a few minutes of it sitting on your lips, which I didn't expect to happen. It leaves your lips tinted, especially if you choose one of the darker shades. I also really like how it's shaped like a crayon because it provides a more precise application. I use the tip to line my lips first then fill them in by using the side of the crayon.
I'd say this is an almost perfect summer product except it doesn't provide SPF. Honestly, I think Clinique did a better job with the formula, their Chubby Sticks glide on a lot smoother and feel more moisturizing. However, Revlon wins in the scent and price (Clinique Chubby Stick retails for PHP 920) department.
