Frugal Friday - Revlon Color Burst Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Review & Lip Swatches

Welcome to another edition of Frugal Friday.  Frugal Friday is a weekly series where I feature an affordable drugstore beauty product.  This week I will be discussing the Revlon Color Burst Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain chubby pencils.

Chubby lip pencils are all the rage right now and almost every single makeup brand has a version of them.  I believe that these Revlon Balm Stains came out in the last 6 months.  Revlon also carries a shiny version of these pencils called Lacquer Balms and a matte version called Matte Balms. I will review those in future posts.


These Balm Stains retail for around $8.99 depending on the store.  I currently own 4 shades, Rendezvous, Honey, Sweetheart, and Crush.  These lippies feel very soft and moisturizing and the color does last quite a long time on my lips, hence their name "Balm Stain".  :)


Rendezvous is a very subtle orange color.  Orange sounds scary but this is soft and pretty. Honey is a nude slightly pink color my lips.  Sweetheart is sort of a neon pink and I love it!  It's totally not a color I normally go for but it's really fun to wear.  Crush is a rasberry color.

One of my favorite things about these lippies is that they have a slight minty taste/smell.  It doesn't last forever though so if that's not your cup of tea, not to worry!  I feel that it's the perfect amount of mint and reminds me of candy canes.

Overall I love the Revlon Color Burst Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains!  If you haven't tried these yet, get out there and get your hands on one or two...or three!  And remember, never ever pay full price for drugstore makeup, there will always be some sort of BOGO sale and coupons to use!

Have you tried these chubby pencils?  Do you love them?

  10. Pretty swatches! I do not have any of the Just Bitten balms but do have two of the Matte balms which I do adore. I'm pretty overloaded with lippies right now but will definitely take a look at these when I go to the store. So glad that you like these!
