Revlon Crush Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain Review and Swatches

Crush is a beautiful wine shade from the collection of Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stains. The lip balm stains are a chubby type of gel based lip color in a pencil style applicator. There are currently twelve colors and I personally hope they expand to include some more standard nude colors.

I previously reviewed Honey, (my favorite), and Rendezvous, Sweetheart and Charm.  Crush is definitely my favorite after Honey.  I love, love, love this kind of wine color that is dressy enough for a night out or can also be worn with jeans around town.  Crush was the star of the show for me recently on a night out in Vegas.

The Revlon Kissable Lip Balm Stains are very easy to wear.  Draw them on like a pencil and in a moment, they suddenly feel very moisturizing and super easy to wear.  They do leave a stain, like the name implies, so that your lips retain a fair amount of color as you go about your day or evening instead of leaving a scary looking line around the outside of the lips like so many lipsticks do.  They have a bit of a minty feel initially.

The only drawback to these pencils is that it's hard to guess from the outer casing what the inside color will be like.  There is a little bit of hoping involved in making the choice of what to purchase unless you have really researched swatch pictures online.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stains run from $8-$10 and can be purchased at any drugstore or online at

Have you tried these yet?  What do you think?  I have 2/3 of what's available so I'm declaring these a success!!


  1. I like this shade on you.

    The only think I don't like about these pencils is the cheap plastic cap. Mine has split up the sides in several spots after not much use.

    I only have one shade, smitten, and I do enjoy it quite a bit! It seems similar to this shade, it doesn't have any shimmer. Does Crush have shimmer? It looks like it in the picture of the pencil.

    Thanks for this review.


    1. I don't see any Shimmer bits when I wear it, but I can see them in the pencil. So it's the kind that enhances the shininess of the color while hiding inside. It's not the kind you can visible see while wearing it. I hope that helps somewhat.

  2. I agree that it is difficult to tell the shade from the packaging. Hence, why reviews like this are so helpful! I'm hoping they release even more colors soon!
