Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Honey Douce: Swatches & Review

There is something super cute about chubby sticks...I cannot put my finger on it, but if it is nice and chubby, chances are I will be quite tempted to pick it up :D Of course, I would love to try out the Clinique ones..but Revlon has the advantage of price :)

Now I know that the whole world has moved onto the Revlon Matte and Lacquer Balms...But me? Well, living upto my belief that I should have been born in the older era...I am in love and totally loyal to the original Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains (I do not even remember when they came out..but I love them). And the shade Honey/Douce is so far my absolute favourite! I am a natural subtle makeup girl through and through :)

The chubby crayon comes in a sturdy plastic body coloured to resemble the shade inside (very very cute looking..though the silver writing fades off...how I wish it didn't).
The cap shuts tight and will not come off in your bag, making it very easy to travel with. It is super quick and easy to apply - just pop it on your lips, you don't even need a mirror most of the times. Since the stick has a retractable twist up packaging, there is no wastage by sharpening (do be careful while putting the cap back on though, since a part of the product remains exposed and you do not want to nick such a pretty shade). 
The above reasons are why I throw this baby in my bag 90% of the times!

Coming to the texture it is not too soft (unlike the lip butters) so you can apply it in a hurry too. It goes on smooth, non-sticky and it is quite moisturising and balm-y. Even though it mostly feels like a lip balm, the pigmentation is quite great
Though Honey would not show up very well on pigmented lips, but the brighter darker variants will show up well. It has no shimmer/glitter, just a smooth glossy finish. 
The glossy look wears after an hour leaving behind a tint which lasts around 4 hours on me (and will survive a meal and some drinks). 

There is a peppermint smell and cool feel  when applied (no taste) which I personally really like, though it does not last long.

The mositurizing feel goes away when the color starts wearing off into a stain, you will need to reapply or go over with a lip balm ( I don't mind reapplying :D). 
The wearing off part is somewhat of a concern too, sometimes it fades unevenly, which isn't a very pretty sight (so remember to check in between if you can and reapply). 

Honey Douce is a neutral dusty pink with subtle mauve undertones. On my lips it gives a wash of pink which looks quite pretty. It is the everyday wear-just throw-in-your-handbag kind of colour which would compliment all skin tones. It is the anytime, anywhere, will go with just about anything colour.
Do you see why I love it so much?  :D
It can be worn very sheer or you can build it up to medium color with a few swipes (though the color will not show up well on pigmented lips).

Price : 700 INR for 2.7g 

Even though the few cons it has, I still like it a lot. It is super conveniet to use and carry around. It stays on a decent time and Honey is totally "my" kind of shade. Plus how cute is the chubby packaging! I can see myself repurchasing this one. If you haven't tried them out yet, you should go check it out...they might catch your fancy too :)

Are you a jumbo lip crayon lover too? Which other shades do you recommend in this range?

Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Makeup Remover: Review

It is well understood that we all love buying makeup..and more makeup. And I am sure you know that it is equally important to invest in good makeup remover.
Of course, lots of us are partial to baby oil/coconut oil/olive oil...but there are those days...lazy ones or tiring ones or days when you need stuff gone quickly and this is when a makeup remover comes in super handy.
