Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Darling Review & Swatches
Today on the fifth day of the pink challenge I am reviewing one of my favorite pink lipstick crayons- Daring by Revlon!
This shade is a medium light pink with purple undertones. I love them for their packaging, they resemble color crayons but a bit chubbier than the normal crayons. I simply love its light colored fragrance and they last for a period of 6 hours with light meals in between. As the name suggests they are perfect lip stains for getting that perfect kissable lips ;)
Eversince I bought these lip beauties I have been neglecting other lip products, yes they are so good ! This shade-darling is a everyday wearable shade with purple tones and shimmer particles which are not in the face . I also have these Kissable balms in 5 other variants - Lovesick, Adore, Rendezvous, Crush, & Romantic ! I love all of them lovesick and crush being my least favorites.
Price and Quantity: I bought these for INR 700 but I read it somewhere that revlon increased the price once they were a hit in the market!
INR 700 for .95 ounce
Variant being Reviewed: Darling
Other Variants: Rendezvous ,Cherish ,Lovesick ,Sweetheart ,Honey ,Crush ,Smitten ,Charm ,Romantic ,Precious and Adore
One Word: LOVE!
Packaging: Absolutely love the packaging, as awesome as the product , even the packaging is supercool. Comes in retractable plastic crayon shaped pencil , exactly like the Clinique Chubby sticks packaging! Travel friendly and does not break like lipsticks (Yes I have numerous branded lipsticks from Loreal and lakme that break easily!)
Texture: Lightweight and stains the lips beautifully
Pigmentation: As this is a light colour a single swatch gives a lovely light lilac pink purple pigment on lips, those who have pigmented lips might want to swatch it twice or thrice for colour building and hiding dark pigments on lips.
Fragrance: Minty fragrance , I absolutely love it! Don’t think many of them would like it but for me its a thumbs up!
Staying Power: Stays for two hours after application and the stains remains for about 6 hours!
Shade/ Colour: Purplish pink !
My experience: I love these balm stains, though not a balm they make my lips look lovely. darling might not suit darker skin tones and is suitable for medium to fair skin tones. Its a tricky color!
Availability: Available at Revlon Stores and Online stores
Whats Good: Everything !
What could be Better: The price, well they are pricy !
Will I Repurchase? : YES YES YES !
BlingSparkle Rating: 4/5
Final Verdict: Its a beautiful shade for everyday wear and those who are on an outlook for staying balm stains , go for this!
