Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Cherish (Rs 600 for 2.7 gm)available at Revlon counters and HealthkartShade – Cherish is one shade that looks different under varied lightings. Sometimes, it comes out as a light bubble gum pink and sometimes it looks like a blue based mauve shade. It has sheen to it. The shade is very sheer and is more of a tinted balm than a proper lip color. However, multiple swipes build up the pigmentation.
Packaging –The packaging is very much identical to Clinique chubby sticks.A retractable chubby pencil packaging having the same shade as the shade which makes it easy to store and locate. Shade name and number are provided at the other end of the pencil packaging.Texture & Formula –The texture of the balm is soft and smooth. It isn’t thick or sticky but I find it bit less creamy as compared to other two shades that I have. However, it glides on smoothly on lips and is moisturising.
The formula is light weight and doesn’t bleed. It has subtle sheen in it that imparts healthy look to lips and make them a bit glossy. It doesn’t settle in the lip lines and is quite moisturising for chapped lips.
Pigmentation – Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Cherish is a sheer shade with one swipe which can be built up to medium pigmentation as the shade itself is light.
Staying Power- It stays for about 3- 4 hours on my lips without any meals in between.
I love the formula, the shade and the feel of the balm stain as it is very light weight and non sticky. I like wearing Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Cherish with natural looks as it gives a subtle look.Cherish is a shade best suited for fair to wheatish skin tones as it is very light.The sheen in it gives a healthy look to lips.A deeper alternative to this shade is Darling that is slightly more pigmented than this.
It is slightly less creamy than rendezvous and Honey that I have but it feels comfortable on lips. Also, the staying power is very low.
Altogether,a great formula in a decent packaging and a nice alternative to higher tag Clinique chubby sticks.
