Revlon "Sweetheart" Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Swatch + Review

Relvon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in "Sweetheart"
 I love the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains (even though it is literally the longest name for a beauty product ever) and I feel like I'm always talking about the shade "Honey". But today, I'm going to be talking about the shade "Sweetheart". I originally bought this color because I thought it was the color that Emma Stone was wearing in the Jut Bitten Kissable Balm Stain advertisements. Unfortunately, I was wrong. She was wearing the shade "Lovesick". But in my defense, the shades are very similar.

 Before I get into my opinions on this particular shade, I'm going to do a quick summary of my thoughts about the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in general. These are the perfect hybrid (as the name would suggest) between a balm and a stain. They're ultra long lasting (especially the darker and bolder colors) but they're incredibly moisturizing on the lips. They come in an easy to use crayon and they're great to apply on the go. I can't get enough of these bad boys and I have then in at least six shades. They're fantastic!

 "Sweetheart" is a super bright, super bold fuchsia shade. I know that there are hundreds of women out there that love this shade but, for me personally, it isn't my cup of tea. I prefer to wear more neutral or plummy lipsticks. There is a very similar shade, "Lovesick", and it is slightly darker and slightly more purple and I think that it suits my skin tone a bit better. I'm not the biggest fan of this color but I wanted to do a swatch because I knew that a lot of my readers would love it. It's a gorgeous color but I don't think it's right for me.

 Here is a swatch of the product on the lips. It's strange. I think it looks lovely here but I just feel uncomfortable wearing such a bold color in person. 

POSITIVES
-Great pigmentation
-Lasts all day and all night
-Moisturizing
-Price ($9)
-No sharpener need (product twists up)
-Fresh mint smell

NEGATIVES
-Fades unevenly 

In conclusion, I think the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains are fantastic. I can't wait to get my hands on more shades but this isn't one that I find incredibly flattering. The formulation is fantastic but this is probably the shade that I reach for the least. But please don't let my lack of enthusiasm for this color discourage you from going out and buying it. "Sweeheart" truly is a great product but it isn't for me.
