The last few months Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain have been going crazy in the beauty blogosphere. I’ve read countless reviews, each raving about how good this balm stain was. When Priceline had their 2 for 1 Revlon offer a few months ago, I jumped at the chance of getting these. As you know prices in Australia are quite ridiculous. These retail for $17.95 each!
According to Revlon “It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood“.
I ended up picking up two colours from the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain range – 030 Smitten & 025 Sweetheart. I wanted more but I had to control myself.
What I like about the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain:
- Great pigmentation with buildable colour.
- Stain lasts up to 4 hours on me.
- Unique peppermint scent – At first, it was a little strange but now I hardly even notice it.
- Feels lightweight and smooth but not greasy.
- Super cute packaging.
- No sharpener required, retractable crayon.
My thoughts? Well, I found the application to be a little on the drier side. The doesn’t glide across the lips as smoothly as the Face of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons but once you have it on, it looks fine on the lips. It doesn’t accentuate my flakey lip which is a bonus. Even though I said it has a drier application, this balm is still more moistersing compared to other lip stains.

Both balm stains were purchased by me.
A few weeks ago, L’Occitane held a bloggers event for Christmas and also to talk about their products. I learnt quite a bit about the company and as embarrassing as this sounds, I learnt how to pronounce L’Occitane. We were given some products as gifts and I have used the Marvellous Flowers Hand Cream since. It’s such a shame this hand cream is limited edition, I love it to bits!!
According to L’Occitane “Enriched with shea butter, the Marvellous Flowers Hand Cream softens and helps nourish hands, leaving skin moisturized and supple. Formulated with natural floral extracts, hands will be perfumed with the delicate fragrance of sparkling red fruits complemented by soft peony and rose“.
What I like:
- I love the scent of this hand cream!!! I took it to work and every now and then I’ll be sniffing my hands. I could see my co-worker giving me weird looks.
- One of the criteria I have for hand creams is how quickly they dry/absorb into the skin. This one dries amazingly quick and it’s not greasey which is a +1 for me.
- The formula enriched with shea butter keeps my hands hydrated all day.
Have you tried L’Occitane hand creams?
This product was provided to me as a gift from L’Occitane. This has not influenced my opinion. I wouldn’t want you wasting your money on a product that doesn’t deliver results!
A little over a year ago, I started blogging at The Ugly Moments. It started off as a lifestyle blog and slowing turned into a beauty blog. Three months ago, I started to feel the name of my blog was not really appropriate for a beauty blog.
After careful consideration, I have decided to start a new blog Beauty & Things leaving behind my baby, The Ugly Moments. I am so glad I made this move, wordpress is awesome!!
If there are any products you would like me to review, please let me know.
If you one of my readers from The Ugly Moments, thank you so much for coming over (don’t forget to subscribe to this blog)! For my new readers, welcome!
