How amazing is this?! Amazing spring/summer color. The balm wears comfortably for hours, and it leaves a beautiful stain behind on my lips. This is much brighter of a lip product than I would normally buy, but it's wonderful. I thought the coverage would be a little sheer since it's a "balm," but these balm stains are so pigmented! Amazing product.
This product is amazing! I was skeptical at first...who would think a balm could stain, moisturize, and last at the same time?! I picked up Lovesick, a super bright pink color...definitely not for the shy. I loved how it looked when it was first applied. It felt good on with a slight mint smell but when that goes away you have a nice stain. You would only need to freshen up once throughout the day.
let me being by saying i got this product for one dollar at my local discount store! its an awesome shade for my skin tone and i like how it really does stain my lips even after drinking water the color is still there, i actually dont find it drying, gotta say this is an awesome find!
I'm not usually a "bright" lipstick kinda girl but I had to try this bright shade after watching Emilynoel83 rave reviews on Youtube. She didn't recommend this particular shade but raved about this stain product. I was super impressed with the staying power. That being said, it is super drying on my lips and I felt I was constantly licking my lips to "rehydrate". It definitely leaves a stain even after several hours of wear. And has a nice minty smell to it that's not overpowering. I've seen accumulated 4 shades and have not been disappointed.
This product is my favorite lip color product to come out from any company in years. I struggle with lip colors because they just don't stay and any stains I have tried have left my lips dry and the color wasn't too great either. This product goes on smooth. It has a very light minty scent. This color, Lovesick, is a bright fuscia. It stays on well enough, but as long as you still feel the balm on your lips you will leave behind a bit of color on whatever your lips touch. I didn't find that as the balm wore off that my lips felt dry. It is possible to apply again without any problems with the stain going funky as I have had others do. The lip color stays on my lips for three hours with minimal fading and if I re-apply it is an absolute pill to take off (which I like because it is a stain). It is not kissable until the balm wears off.. unless your sweetheart wants some color for their lips too.
I'm loving this color! Mmmmm...hmmmm what a sexy bright shade. I must admit I have very pigmented lips to begin with so this isn't as bright on me as it may be on others. I enjoy the minty smell and I especially like that stain that this balm leaves behind. I plan to purchase at least a couple of more colors.
This is a lovely medium bright pink on me. The stain lasts a long while after the balm has worn off. Although the formula feels a little drying, it isn't nearly as bad as most stains I have tried.
I am nothing but pleased with the quality and convenience of the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains thus far, but color-wise, it took a small skip to make Lovesick in particular work for me. As others have noted, the moisturizing effect of the balm wears off within an hour, and Lovesick is definitely very staining. The color is also super bright, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's the color used in the promo images. When I wear it layered up to make it look like the promo/tube color, it's a cool-toned rosey fuchsia...cranked up to 11. I rarely find color tones that my neutral-warm skin tone doesn't like, but clearly this is one of them! I look trashy, no matter how neatly coiffed the rest of me is! What I've discovered, though, is that because Lovesick is so apt to stain, I can just make one pass of the balm over my lips and leave it at that, and my lips adopt a rosey tint--just enough to bring the right dose of color to my otherwise pigmented but low-saturation lips, without looking like the too-cheery cherry popsicle look that most other popular stains would confer (think Benetint). It's more raspberry than the pink that the developed Honey looks like on me, so it's actually more natural-looking than Honey. And just that light stain lasts for so long! I like it a lot for that! So I'm giving it a 5 overall, even though the full-on color didn't work for me. I probably would buy this again because I really like the light stain look!
This is a bright fuscia color. I like the way it applies to the lips smoothly and the minty flavor of the balm. For me, this color lasts almost all day! The balm part does fade away, but it's easy to reapply or you can put a regular balm on top if you're scared of making the color even more intense. This probably isn't a color for people that don't like bright colors, but I think it's a fun one to wear, especially for spring/summer.
This product retails for $7.99 at my local Rite Aid and I purchased it during one of their 40% off sales. Lovesick is a gorgeous, bright rosey-fuchsia color (if that makes sense). JBKBS are lightly mint scented, but I can't detect a scent or flavor shortly after application on the lips. They are in twist-up lip crayon form (similar to Tarte's LipSurgences) and apply smoothly and build up color evenly. The texture of JBKBS is really nice; feels moisturizing and glides along your lips nicely, yet not too slippery. Applied heavily, the color is as intense and true to the appearance of Emma Stone's lips in the ad. Applied lightly, it gives a hint of brightness that is very wearable in my opinion. Initially, the product leaves you with a glossy finish that wears away within the first hour or so, and you're left with intense color with a satin-y finish on your lips. Very comfortable, and the color wears evenly over the course of the day -- I can still see a nice stain at the end of the workday, so the lasting power on these is at least 7-8 hours.
I am NC35-40 / MUFE F+B 32 & 34, and currently have (and love) this color, Lovesick, and Rendezvous.
