Get pouty : Review of Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable

April 8, 2013

The Just Bitten Kissable launched in the States months ago and everyone raved about them. If you are a frequent Boots visitor, like I am, then you’ve probably seen these on the Revlon counters. Just Bitten Kissable have hit the stores a few weeks ago, I believe, and I was ALL over the place when I first got my hands on them.

These lip products look like Clinique’s Chubby Sticks and smell like peppermint. Love both. Liking the product already!

If you’ve never read or heard about the Just Bitten Kissable, it’s basically a lip balm and a lip stain that is supposed to moisturize your lips while keeping a long lasting color to them. However, not sure where the “Bitten” plays its part. Perhaps the deeper red shades have a “just bitten” effect to them?

The packaging is a very simple, twist as you use, “jumbo pencil”. 

After trying it several times, I noticed that it tends to dry up the lips after a while. This happens once the lip balm disappears (as always), which is after 3 or 4 hours of wear, and only the stain is there (which is a good sign – long lasting color). If you have very dry or chapped lips, the trick is to keep a clear lip balm in your handbag at all times. 

I got the shade Honey Douce 001, the type of shade that I would usually pick up, the kind that I just slap on and forget about it. The color is lovely and perfect for everyday! But I honestly don’t see why it’s called honey as it is a pretty natural, rose shade.

It’s a very nice product, don’t get me wrong, and with a bit of criticizing it somehow managed to reach my favorites list. Great stain (probably the best I’ve ever tried), not so great lip balm.

    Honey is one of my favorite shades of the balms. I love the brighter colors, too, but I find that if my lips are even I bit chapped the color looks patchy once the gloss fades away.

    There aren’t a lot of places in Belgium that sell Revlon and so far none of the ones I’ve seen stock the just bitten kissable lip stains *sigh*
