I'm Asian NC25/30 with yellow undertones. The color upon initial application is gorgeous on me! The product DID last a long time however it morphed into an ugly orange/reddish color. It did not look good.
Don't care for the color on me. It's a mid-tone red w/ gold shimmer. Would probably look great on dark and yellow tone complexions.
These are my FAVORITE lip product. They are comfortable on the lips. Smell nice. No unpleasant taste. The best part is they ACTUALLY STAIN MY LIPS! All over stains I've tried not only dry the hell out of my lips and are uncomfortable, but they don't stain.
Truthfully, I expected this colour to come out a little differently. But I don't hate it. And I'm not fond of glossy/shiny lips, which this does a bit of (obviously, since it's a balm).
But, that's all my fault. I probably should've chosen a differently colour or something. Because, I think this is a wonderful product overall. I own another one in the colour 'Honey' and I love it!!!! And also, the stain stays on for a long time which is pretty awesome too.
Not the right colour choice for me, but I do recommend it!
This colour is great for a red lips look :) I'm new to lip products and I think that these Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are really good to get into it. These were about $17.95 in Australia which is pretty pricey since in America they're super cheap. These lip stains aren't THAT moisturising for me but that isn't a big deal to me. The smell of it also isn't pleasant for me but I can live. :) The stain these leave on really are quite long-lasting and give you like a natural/matte look to your lips. Get this colour if you want a deep/bright red lips look!
This product is okay. The formula is decent: it is moderately moisturizing; feels nice on the lips; and lasts a decent amount of time. It fades somewhat evenly, but there is still a slight ring of colour around the outer portion of my lips after a while.
My problem with this product is the colour. There weren't any testers where I bought mine so I didn't try it out first. I wanted a wearable berry shade. This shade is definitely not that. It is a very orangey red that fades to a very unflattering shade of orange. I did not find the colour of the tube for this product to be representative of the colour of the product at all.
Therefore, I would not recommend this shade.
I LOVE this product! This is a non-drying lip stain. This color looks great on me. It's a "very wearable red" (on me). Once some of the glossiness/color wears off it leaves a beautiful just enough red color on my lips. This can be applied once in the beginning of the day and then touched up if you are going out at night.
This is my favorite Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm stain color.
I gave this a four because I dont feel it is moisturizing. It does not dry out my lips as bad as other products, but compared to the Tarte Lipsurgence this seems to settle more into the lines after a few hours. Now if I were rating this on color alone, I would give this 5 lippies. I have been searching for a nice darker reddish color. It is a brown red, almost orangey but it is very flattering with my skintone NC25 - 30ish. I do like the way these feel when initally putting them on but after a few hours my lips feel dry. The color does last for a few hours as well. It does not transfer easily which is good. For the price these are great. I just feel these could be more moisturizing.
IF this ever did run out, I don't think I'd be dying to repurchase. It does dry my lips out after the day is through, even though the stain does last all day and it's REALLY moisturizing upon first application. After a while the stain settles into the lines of my lips and that's when I start scrubbing it off (along with the layer of dead skin it creates). I tried protecting my lip with Blistex but that didn't really work either. Also, when it's first applied, it an orangey brown with gold shimmer and I'm not really a fan of shimmer. When the shimmer wears off you're left with a great red toned lip, but, even so... I don't like my lips feeling this dry.
I want this to be my HG lip product, but it falls a little short. I tried four different colors and none of them were great. I gave this a better rating than the others, because it is the only color that looks ok on me when used alone. if I use a very light layer, it winds up looking like peachy-pink on me, which looks nice with my neutral freckly skin. However, if I go to put a second coat on, it becomes way too orangey brown on me.
If I mix Crush with Adore (using just a tiny bit of each so it's not too dark), I get an almost perfect neutral rose color, but I really don't like having to mix two lipsticks all the time.
Pros: the stain it leaves behind is really long lasting. plus, it usually wears off nice and even unless my lips are super dry. it wears off WAY more evenly than any other lip stain I've ever tried. so it could have been my HG stain! BUT...
Cons: when I wear Adore alone, sometimes the stain part can turn a weird coral color on me. but it's unpredictable, it doesn't happen every time. I would prefer a more neutral rose stain. this just ends up too bright. If I mix it with Crush, the stain it leaves behind is closer to a neutral rose, but still too much on the bright side.
also, it seems like a nice balm (like burt's bees classic lip balm) but does not actually seem to really keep the lips hydrated.
Hopefully Revlon will continue to perfect this product -- they have almost nailed it. Revlon: please keep trying! I might buy this product again, but probably only if Revlon puts out new colors.
I started buying these to dupe the Tarte balm stains. Having tried both I actually prefer the Revlon version to the Tarte version because they are less sticky, the color lasts longer, they are a lot cheaper, and I find the Revlon ones a bit more moisturizing. Adore is by far my favorite color of the 4 I own. It is a beautiful darkish red stain that is very wearable during the day. I also have smitten, charm, and cherish and am looking forward to grabbing a few more the next time I go to the drugstore.
