revlon-justbitten-balmstain Its hard to find certain items  that both boys and girl can equally like. Take for example the TV- I definitely do not want to watch random sports news every night and he says he would rather punch himself in the face than watch ‘Pretty Little Liars’. So we went through a lot of potential shows together, but we have narrowed it down to ‘Suits’ and ‘Modern Family’ . So that’s our Ten PM Tv slot sorted ! You know what else is hard to find- a red lip color that both of you will like on you!! Now , honestly its not like the boy has any opinion on lip colors, except red in which his opinion is “Ewwwww santa claus” or “Ewwww is it blood?” or “Can i dip my sandwich because that looks like ketchup“. That was until The Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Romantic !! I waited all day for a smart ass line about it, but nothing except “Hmm, you look nice”. You chubby little balm stain- you just scored yourself some major brownie points!!!

The color

Romantic is a soft, wash of red with a warm, orangey undertone. I think because its semi sheer, it dilutes the full blown impact of a red lipstick, but looks like a beautiful wash of berry on your lips. Like you just bit into a juicy strawberry!! It kind of reminds me of Viva Glam Cyndi which i love except Cyndi is more pink, and this is more red. This is a great way for girls who are scared of reds to get started on it- because i can wear this to work as easily as i can to a night out. Thats why i like having this stashed in my bag somewhere !

General Thoughts

Revlon Just Bitten Balm stains are decently pigmented lip products that give a soft, stained quality to your lips. Making it look like you have no lipstick on, but still giving a wash of color ! They definitely are not Lip Balm material, and they could up the moisture quotient, but they are definitely nice options to own just because of the finish they give. Some of them stain a bit unevenly, like Smitten did but Romantic did not have the same problems!





Verdict: A-

Price: Rs 600/-

Recommendation: Romantic is definitely my favourite Just Bitten Balm Stain from Revlon!!!  Its a beautiful, beautiful warm red which looks like you just ate a berry on your lips. This also wasnt as drying as some of the other Balm Stains iv tried !

Mehak, I love your the little anecdotes that you include in your stories! You should definitely do a #husbandtag! I am sure all of your readers would love to hear from your husband aka boy :)

So agree with you on the men vs red lips thing! Am yet to come across one man who actually likes red lipstick. This one is a lovely shade though..I have Lovesick and Rendezvous. Gotta get romantic too


mehak March 23, 2013 at 10:42 am

Ooh what are lovesick and rendesvous like?


Preeti Kaur March 23, 2013 at 12:17 am

I love the color and you are right, it is suitable for those who are kind of scared of sporting pure red lip colors :) Will definitely buy this weekend :P


Xuvious March 23, 2013 at 12:31 am

I’m still hung up on Honey Douce but I might try this sometime soon! :)


mehak March 23, 2013 at 10:43 am

Honey douce is nice as well!


Preetha March 23, 2013 at 8:16 am

Sumathi March 23, 2013 at 9:06 am

The colour sure is very pretty and subtle.. I’m scared of red lippies.. Might give this one a try.

Love your sense of humour Mehak and thats a beautiful red.

Boys and red lipstick don’t go together.. My boy hates make up too :(

We were in visiting my parents in Hyderabad last week andI love shopping in Kathiawar (cosmetics store in Hyd). I was looking at the Revlon balm stain. Surprise suprise! The boy chose “Adore” lip stain and was like “you have to buy this.” :) Hmmm.. This has never happened before. Boy asking me to buy cosmetics. Buy it, buy it ! and I did. These lip stains are subtle and even boys love it on their “women”. Do try “Adore” . Its earthy tone and brightens the face.


mehak March 23, 2013 at 10:43 am

Hehe Kathiawar is awesoe you get everything there


shivangi March 23, 2013 at 11:56 am

It indeed is a pretty Red lip color!


Miss Delirium March 23, 2013 at 1:38 pm

Haha, so true..:P

Looks like a lovely color! I have yet to try them, but they are very similar to the new sticks from Clinique – and they are gorgeous :)


deepti March 23, 2013 at 2:09 pm

nice review. just loved the way you defined the shade :)


Shikha March 23, 2013 at 2:28 pm

Men find Red attractive on other girls than their.. and red is always a shade which I am hesitant to play around with.


CSP Ballal March 23, 2013 at 2:45 pm

Swati March 23, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Ash March 23, 2013 at 5:49 pm

Hey, Mehak! I love your reviews! I’m a huge sucker for lipglosses and balms too. But i’m having trouble finding good ones to suit me ever since I developed a SEVERE allergy to Jojoba oil (seems to be in everything nowadays). Can you suggest any good lip products that are jojoba free? I would be soooooo grateful! Thanks!
