One of the hottest new products for summer is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain ($8.99 USD)- a new chubby pencil lip balm that leaves your lips with gorgeous colour and juicy shine, for a comfortable feel with long-lasting wear.
They’ll be in Canada soon… but we must have gone to at least four drugstores here in LA trying to find some (with a bit of success… but it looks like a lot of others already found out about how awesome they are)!
Available in 12 gorgeous shades ranging from light to deep, these are definitely the hot new product of the summer. They smell like peppermint (which is actually slightly unexpected- I would have preferred a fruity or sweet scent, but it doesn’t linger long so that’s okay), and glide on like a lip butter. Instead of sharpening, they simply twist up to reveal new product.
The lighter shades are a sheer to medium coverage, while the deeper shades (like this one in Crush) are medium to full coverage- all shades are buildable though, so just lightly sweep it on for a hint of colour, or pile it on for full coverage colour. The shine lasts about 1-2 hours, but the colour lasts much longer. It fades from the inside out, especially after eating.
I love the fact these products are in a pencilform- no need for a lip liner! It also makes them super portable and purse-friendly.

- Overall: A total must-have! These new lip balm stains are comfortable, pigmented, long-wearing and they are super portable! I love the fact I don’t need a lip liner, and that the coverage is awesome. I do wish the scent was different, but it doesn’t liner long. If you can find them in stores- be sure to try them out!
