I've been dying to get my hands on one of these since I first heard they were coming out. They're comparable to the Clinique chubby sticks, which i havent tried but ive been really impressed with the Just bitten Kissable balm stains. They're described as a lightweight lipstain balm which moisturises, giving soft, smooth lips. They have a good range of colours, from nudes to pinks and reds, so I had a fair few to choose from.
I was in Boots (as always) and decided to pick one up. After swatching all the colours I went for 'Cherish', one of the lighter pinks in the range. Im trying to get out of that habit of going for nudes so I went for a pink.
I went to work the next day with it on and by the time i'd had lunch (4 hours later), it had remained on my lips but mostly on the outer edges (not so much that it looked like I had lined my lips with a pink lip liner though). I was quite impressed it was still on after eating and drinking.
The packaging, which I love, is really convenient. The balm is retractable so there's no need to sharpen. It applies so easily and I love that it's like a big crayon! The balm is also peppermint flavoured which I really like.
I find that they're moisturising but not that moisturising. They're not as drying as I thought they might be though and I didnt find them clinging to any drier patches either, which is always a good thing. With any type of lip stain I always apply a lip balm before hand so I definitely recommend doing that, especially if your lips are on the drier side.
Overall I really like this product. I'm definitely going to pick up 'Charm' which is a nude peach colour. I can't help myself. I just love my nudes!
They are £7.99 but are currently £5.99 in Boots and Superdrug.
