Revlon balm stains

Hi everyone. Firstly, I am so sorry that I have not done a blog post for so long, I guess things were just too hectic. However, I am back and ready to post and post and post some more!!

Last week I won a blog giveaway!! In this giveaway I won two Revlon just bitten kissable balm stains. I had been wanting to try this product for a while, so I was so excited that I won two that I could try for free. I received the shades honey and darling.

I loved the shade honey. I've already read so many reviews about this colour, and I can see why it is such a big hit. It's a nude/pinky colour that can be worn everyday. 

This is the shade darling. When I first saw the packaging I was slightly worried as it looked REALLY purple. However, on the lips its a nice purple/pink colour and it is very wearable for day or night time. 

These balm stains apply really creamy and moisturising, so on first applying them I was concerned that they would in fact be a lipstick and not dry into a lip stain. After a minute or so, the product dries, staining the lips. I have worn both of these shades throughout the day whilst eating and drinking and am pleased to say the colour stays. This is the first lip stain I have used that felt moisturising instead of watery and drying for the lips. 

I am in love with these and I am looking to purchase the Rendezvous shade soon. 

Have you tried these balm stains? How are you liking yours?
