Adore & Devotion // Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

Not much beats a lip crayon in Chez Bovary, and I have amassed quite a stash from all realms of the attainable price points. The long-named offering from Revlon (Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain…from now on referred to as ‘the balm stains’) are one of my favourite lip crayon formulations, and these were the first two I chose when they launched.
Cherish is one of the many pink offerings from the range, and though they don’t make as big an impact as the darker/brighter shades, they make a lazy lip pairing easy as they go with any eye look.  Cherish is the Barbie pink option, but they also have some great bright pinks, neutral brown pinks and a lavender toned one to boot. I will have swatches of all of my lip crayons up in the near future, to show you how the shades all look side by side from each brand.
Even though I have now amassed the majority of the Revlon balm stains, Adore remains my one true love. A deep, sexy, wearable red, I never fail to garner a compliment when I wear it. My Mum, who (as documented here) does not explore much in the lipstick realm, rushed out and bought it the day after she saw it on me. The peppermint scent is uplifting but not too tingly, the colour is buildable and the stain left behind is even, meaning that touch ups aren’t a ‘do or die’ sort of thing if you’re too busy at work to look into a mirror.
The swatches here can be sheerer, or built up to a bolder look depending on your preference. I definitely recommend trying out one or two of these, I bought them during a Priceline promotion and the regular retail price is $17.95 AUD.
Have you jumped on the lip crayon band wagon? Which brand makes your favourite crayon? 


  1. I bought one of these just recently but haven't had the chance to try it yet. I can't wait to give it a go. Happy to know you approve of them!

  2. I can imagine that Adore would be beautiful on you!

  3. Adore is really pretty..i have only tried Revlon Lip crayons ..

  4. Love these! I really need to get more shades and Adore looks stunning, so that might be my next purchase :) x

  5. I haven't had the chance to try too many crayons, but I really do love the Revlon ones! Thanks for the swatches. I haven't tried these two before.

  6. I haven´t actually tried any lip crayons yet... I would love to try these but we do not have Revlon in Finland anymore (which sucks)
    They look really pretty and I think Id buy Adore if I could :)

  7. Cherish is cute! I'm still yet to buy one of these. I've swatched them a few times, but I always end up putting them back on the shelf. Dunno why. :/

  8. Hmm..I'm liking does it feel though? Is it like the Face of Australia ones?
