Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain: Adore

Swatches & Review
I have previously reviewed Honey and Precious, which was the two I only wanted when they first came out. After a while of using them, I decided to buy another one. This past week, CVS had them on sale for $6.49 with $4 ECB for your next purchase. I went to a few CVS stores and 8 out of 10 stores were completely wiped out of them! One of them only had colors I already had, and another one only had Adore left. Since I have been more comfortable with wearing red on my lips lately, I decided to pick it up.
Adore is like a brown-red to me. It is not like a deep full on red. It has some gold shimmer in it, but it is not too noticeable. Although the swatch on my arm for it does not seem too pigmented, it is definitely more pigmented on the lips. I did not have to go over it multiple times for the color to show up.
I like this shade a lot more than I thought I would. Unlike Precious and Honey, the wear of the color still stayed the same after a some time, while Precious and Honey both turned into a bright colored pink. I don't mind Honey, but Precious was just disappointing for me. I was also a bit hesitant to buy this since I already have Candy Apple from Revlon's Lip Butter line, but this is definitely a lot darker than Candy Apple. What are your thoughts on Adore?


  1. I was gonna get this but changed my mind to getting Crush instead. Looks like I made the right choice. You seem to have cool skin tone, Adore might not work on me.

    I had the same observation as to how Honey turns out too. Upon application, it's a nudish pink color, but when the 'balm' fades off, it becomes a little brighter than I used to be.

    1. I'm still debating on getting Crush! My skintone is actually warm, but I don't mind Adore at all. & yes, I wish Honey stayed to its nude-ish pink instead of becoming brighter when it wears off.
