Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Crush Beguin Review & Swatch

Hey Ladies,

How are you all doing?? Its Monday afternoon and Monday’s are quite boring with loads of work and just removed a little time for this review.

I recently got this new Revlon Lip stain its said as Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in the colour 005 Crush Beguin as it is recently launched in India so here’s the review and swatch.

Price : Rs 600/- for 0.09 oz (2.7 g)


It is really moisturizing on your lips but not very sheer the way Revlon Lip Butters are. Even Colorbar has come up with something called the “Take me as I am” lipsticks,  has to be sharpened it and costs approx 699/- when I last saw them.

It dries quickly and needs a gloss to be applied. The fragrance is sort of a Minty , a menthol types which fades away in 30 mins.

Lasting / Staying power is good, Crush is striking berry or plum color and gives a very rich look. I wore Crush for the entire day and I still have vibrant pink lips. Packaging is good , it reminds me of the the NYX jumbo Sticks but those need a sharpener and these doesn’t. The silver twist up section at the base is really nicely built-into the design. My only complaint is that the lid doesn't fit on the opposite end of the stick. I don't know about you, but if I can't put the lids on the back end I put them down and it takes me almost half an hour to find them again.

May be I need to be extra careful about the lid being misplaced.

Company Claims:

·         100% of women who tried it felt their lips were instantly moisturized with a soft stain of color
·         Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required
·         It's a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. 
·         Just Bitten Kissable ™ Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush color that lasts hour after hour.

·         Very moisturizing and Creamy but not buttery texture ,Easy to apply.
·         Easily available in India.
·         Long Staying Power (i.e 4-5 hours)
·         Travel Friendly

·         At times in some lighting it’s shows a plum colour and in other it’s more of a raspberry colour.
·         Not that pigmented
·         I found it expensive
·         I don’t think it’s the best lip stain I’ve ever bought.

  1. I got # 030 on my trip abroad over last year & it is one of my favorite buys. It really lasts long & has a deep, rich hue. I am eager to try on new shades now that it is launched here.
    P.S. Inglot has the same concept product too. Why don't you review that & let us know.
