My makeup this week has been simple – a light layer of Revlon Photoready BB Cream in Light, a dab of Almay Line Smoothing Concealer in Light/Medium, Marks & Spencer All-in-one Mascara, a touch of Maybelline Cheeky Glow in Fresh Coral on my apples (still haven’t managed to put that blush down) and then whatever lip product I feel like that day. Most of the week I’ve been reaching for a product that I hunted high and low for – Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore.
A nourishing balm with a hint of stain in stick form – of course people drew comparisons to the cult favourite Clinique Chubby Sticks. I’ve never given those a go, but I have to say I’ve been really impressed by the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains so far. Firstly they come in a good range of colours, some nudes, darks, pinks – they’ve got it covered. It’s also ridiculous easy to apply and cleverly twists up so no sharpening is needed. I love this shade Adore, it’s right up my street. A brown-toned red, it’s probably my perfect everyday shade. In terms of their balm claim I have to give them a B+; not the most moisturising product in the world but not as drying as their Lip Butters which I wasn’t really a fan of. And they do leave quite a stain on the lips. The stain that’s left once the balm wears away is a rosy brown, much darker than it appears when you first put it on but I like it nonetheless. To keep the red sheen topped up it’s a reapply every hour kinda job, but the stain left on your lips hangs around for a while longer. So all round a thumbs up from me!
