Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Crushin' on Crush

Hello folks!  Happy weekend everyone.  I've been crushing on yet another Revlon Balm stain.  I already have 3 shades ( charm, cherish, honey ). And now I have Crush!  Oooh how I love this shade.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Crush

Crush has a deep berry shade that exudes that vampy appeal. This is actually the second to the darkest shade in the Just Bitten Line.  What I love about this shade is that even though it has a deep tone, I don't think that this intensifies my look at all.  It imparts a subtle sexiness to my puckers.  Do not be intimidated by the dark berry color because the effect is much more soft on the lips.

The color pay off is more subtle on the lips. Do not be intimidated by the deep berry color

These balm stains' claim to fame is that they really leave somehow an indelible stain on the lips.  And stain they do! Even though  I have already eaten lunch, this was how my lips looked like 4 hours after applying it.  It softened into a somehow soft coral shade. 

4 hours after initial application and no touch ups in between.
Color changed to a soft coral tone after 4 hours.

As with my 3 previous Revlon Kissable Stain hauls (Charm, Cherish, Honey), this one did not disappoint.  It took me 2 weeks to decide if I really wanted this or not.  I was iffy to get it at first because I got intimidated by the color in the tube. 

I am glad that I finally got it.  I am getting more value for my money because it seems as if I am getting two shades in one tube as the color changes as it stays on the lips.  As for the balminess of this, it disappears after 15 to 30 mins.  All Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains have that minty feel that lingers for about 10 mins.  After it disappears, I just slather mint chapstick on my lips and I'm good to go.  Another good thing about this is that the stain does not settle on the lines and cracks of my lips

I also like that I can highlight my eyes without looking like a drag queen in this lip stain.  I can still apply mascara and emphasize my brows because the deep berry shade is really subtle on the lips.  On the other hand, if I'm running late for work, I can get away with just foundation and this lip stain.  

The only con I can think about this is that if you have cracked and chapped lips, this color will emphasize them.  What I do is I gently exfoliate my lips prior to using this using a toothbrush.  Oh, you also need to make sure that you apply in the inner corner of your lips so you won't end up with an uneven color.

This lippie is definitely a keeper. I'm thinking of getting more shades soon.  I'd love to try out the orange shade in Rendezvous.

Holy Grail Verdict:

Effectiveness: 5/5 (I wish the balmy finish would last longer but the color pay off of this stain makes up for it)
Price: 4/5
Availability: 5/5  I'm starting to see this and the other shades back on several Revlon Counters
