Summer Rave Review: Revlon Kissable Balm Stain

Hello beauties! Summer is here.Yeey!!  Exams are also here though. Even though I should be studying, here I am writing this review on my new favourite lip product. Cheers to Revlon then!

About a month ago, I purchased this baby just because I love the majority of Revlon products. I'm totally in love with their Lip Butters so their new Kissable Balm Stain should be amazing. Let's see...

I bought the shade "Romantic" as I always tend to go for red tones on the lips. Reds are versatile just because you can apply them opaque and have a full red lip effect, but also you can sheer them out and get a flushed preppy look great for daytime.

Packaging : Their packaging is familiar, identical to Clinique's Chubby Stick. Nice and comfy to keep in your purse for touch ups throughout the day. 

Consistency/Formula: Unlike other stains, this one reminds me of the lip butter by revlon. It's really moisturising and a bit glossy (as you can see in the pictures below). In this shade, there is some shimmer but it's really fine - not glittery at all. The pigmentation is also great in this shade.

Colours: There is a range of 12 shades. The shade "Romantic" is a warm toned red. 

Staying power: These are branded as lip STAINS, so they are supposed to stain your lips and last a long time without fading. I find that almost true. Personally... nothing lasts on my lips. I am the lipsticks' fear. So this lasted pretty well on me, about 3 hours while drinking water from a bottle during the day. For some people that might be tiny staying power (keep in mind regular lipstick lasts about 30 minutes on my lips). This one, even though it fades, it leaves a stain on the lips. They won't be bare pink, but slightly flushed rose red. 

Price: So these cost about 8.99$, here ... 16 euros (but they are almost all the time on sale -3 euro) and you can find them at drugstores and here at Hondos Centre.


I am definitely repurchasing some more shades.
 I would totally recommend these.

Have you tried these lip stains? 
How long they stay on your lips?
