My Opinion: - I am not much into lipsticks but there are times when I completely depend on a lipstick to perk up my look. I am more of a lip gloss person, actually I have been that way since I first started to use lip products on myself. But when I saw these in the Revlon counter, I was too attracted to resist. I bought 2 shades on the very first day, and today I am going to put forward my views on the shade Honey Douce. The packaging of Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain is so cute and girly.  It looks like a chubby crayon and the body is made up of sturdy plastic and its color resembles the shade of the lip stain. The bottom needs to be twisted for the lip stain to come out & go in, its retractable. These are easy to carry around as the cap shuts tight and will not mess up your purse.


























                 It smells like peppermint but the smell/scent fades off upon application. It is basically tasteless and gives a cool feeling to the lips when applied. The texture of this balm stain is creamy yet non greasy. Its certainly not a very moisturising product and beauties with dry chapped lips better apply a lip balm underneath. This balm stain is not drying on the lips but when it's gone you might find your lips a bit stretchy. The pencil form helps in applying it on the go without a mirror as the particular shade looks so natural on me.




SWATCHED IN NATURAL DAY LIGHT




















                  Revlon Just Bittten Kissable Balm Stain Honey Douce is a dusty-muted pink with mauve undertones and looks natural on me. It is a nude pink which would suit most Indian skin tones or you could say that it would be a good MLBB shade for many girls. It gives a tingling sensation to the lips upon application which stays on for a while but the sensation is prolonged if applied to freshly scrubbed lips. A single swipe gives sheer amount of coverage but 2-3 swipes gives medium to opaque coverage, therefore I can say its decently pigmented.





SWATCHED IN ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING























                 When freshly applied, this balm stain gives a nice shine which lasts for an hour at the most. Later on it does not fades off or vanishes rather it leaves behind a beautiful tint which looks fresh for hours. Though it is a little difficult to remove the tint completely from the lips,it can be washed off to some extent with soap and water and completely removed with the help of a makeup remover. This balm stain looks fresh and lasts for about 4 hrs on my lips before fading off evenly. A hit from Revlon!!!!



Pros: -


* Chubby & cute packaging but its so girly

* Decently pigmented

* Contains a lot of product, so Rs 600 is somewhat justified I suppose

* No overwhelming scent, a pleasant peppermint scent that fades off upon application

* Does dry out my lips and makes them flaky but gives a rough after feel

* Honey Douce is a beautiful dusty pink with mauve undertones, looks natural on me

* Leaves a pretty stain on the lips, doesn't leave them stark naked

* It's creamy but not greasy




Cons: -


* Not a long lasting product, it's a balm stain after all

* The shine does not last all day as mentioned by the brand, goes away after an hour or so

* This particular shade is not for those with pigmented lips



          I rate Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey Douce 4.5 out of 5. These come in 10 very beautiful wearable shades. The shade Honey Douce looks very natural on me and could be a MLBB shade for many Indian girls. This shade is perfect for office/college wear, a great nude/neutral for everyday wear. This shade leaves a pretty stain on the lips which lasts for hours. But girls with pigmented lips are requested to test out this shade before investing. A great  lip crayon from Revlon :)
