Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Collection

From left to right: Lovesick, Sweetheart, Charm, Smitten, Honey & Cherish

From left to right (swatches): Lovesick, Sweetheart, Charm, Smitten, Honey & Cherish

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you all are enjoying this holiday season :) I haven't posted in awhile so I thought I would just share my mini collection of Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stains and some of my thoughts on the product.

Some of the balm stains are more pigmented than others which are the brighter ones like Lovesick & Smitten. I found that Lovesick lasted a good time on my lips while some of the other lighter colours such as Charm didn't last as long. The application is quite smooth and I don't mind the slight pepperminty scent that it has. I didn't find the product too drying on the lips but I like wearing a little lip balm underneath just in case. At the moment I have been using Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine underneath and it is working quite well for me.

Overall, I think the balm stains are a great product. For staying power I would lean more towards the brighter colours but if you don't mind a little less staying power than the lighter colours are beautiful as well :)
Has anyone else tried these products? If you have any tips and insights please leave them down below!

xoxo Merry Christmas!

It has been awhile...

Finally got around to putting a new layout up. I have been wanting to do this for awhile but was super busy... so sorry! The new layout is very simplistic and I am liking it right now haha. Who knows maybe in a few weeks it will change again but for now it works for me. Some other things I need to get up on this channel is my Sephora VIB sale haul and my B&BW Black Friday haul. I only bought from one store this Black Friday! I think that is pretty amazing LOL. Anyways, just wanted to check in... more to come (hopefully!)

September Favourites 2012

Finalllyyy!! Some time to post my favourites for the month of September!! This past month I have been transitioning into darker colours and more smokey eyes as Summer has ended and the weather her is slowly getting chillier by the minute. I had worn one of my peep toe flats today... bad idea because on my walk to the office my feet were FREEZING! haha I definitely need to break out my fall booties :) And now on to my favourites...

  • Loreal Lipstick in Fairest Nude - although I am not a big fan of the scent I absolutely love the colour and this has got to be one of my all time fave nude lipsticks
  • MUFE aqua eyes in #16 its a shimmery pink colour! I love it and it stays on for sooo long!
  • Maybelline Masterdrama Liner in Bold Brown - I have been loving browns for lining my eyes!
  • Maybelline Falsies Flared mascara - I know a lot of other people out there love this mascara too :)
  • W&W eyeshadow trio in Walking on Eggshells - such a pretty neutral palette but you can definitely work it to be more smokey!
  • Impress Nails by Broadway Nails - They are so easy to apply and come in so many different designs
  • Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation in #320 Warm Golden - this foundation is DA BOMB for my combination skin
  • Last but not least... Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed... What can I say? Its freakin gorgeous!!
