Revlon Kiss Balm ($5) is a brand new, everlasting Spring 2017 tinted lip /balm that guarantees to offer lasting hydration to lips in addition to defend them with an SPF 20. I lately ran throughout a show of the brand new Revlon Kiss Balms at Harmons and naturally, I needed to snatch up a number of shades and check out them out. I additionally acquired my handed on a restricted version shade known as Sugar Plum at Walgreens which jogs my memory of Clinique’s Black Honey!
Let’s have a look!
Revlon Kiss Balm can be found in six flavors (seven in the event you rely the restricted version Vacation 2016 shade in Sugar Plum) and promise a system that gives as much as six hours of lasting hydration in addition to an SPF 20. These weight in at 0.09 ozeach which makes them slightly smaller in dimension in comparison with Maybelline Child Lips that are 0.15 ozand priced at $3.99 to $4.49. I’m not an enormous fan of Child Lips personally so, Revlon Kiss Balms have been a welcome change in my drugstore lip balm world!
These resemble the Maybelline Child Lips Sweet Wow in model and packaging with the dome formed tip however they’re significantly smaller and extra compact in dimension. If you wish to go means again, these remind me of one thing that Naturalistics had obtainable within the early 90’s on the drugstore. I attempted looking down a classic naturalistics business on youTube however no luck! A fast Google picture search did deliver up Alexis Bledel’s adverts with the model. For some motive, the packaging comes throughout relatively retro to me however cute none the much less.
These are a twist up dome formed lip balm. I discovered the flavors of the balms very tasty however in the event you’re delicate you may not love them. I didn’t really feel just like the SPF left a bitter style in any respect and the flavour does disappear pretty quick so, it isn’t one thing to linger in your lips for hours on finish. These are a lot, far more pigmented than the Child Lips system and have present not solely a great deal of colour but additionally shine to lips as properly. Probably the most pigmented shade was indubitably Sugar Plum which Juicy Peach being the sheerest.
I discover the system disappoint on my first few utility as they dragged throughout my lips throughout utility and the ideas felt very stiff. They do want warming up and after a number of makes use of you’ll discover the consistency of the balms is thinner and slicker in comparison with the unique few purposes. Just a few passes again and fourth over your lips will soften down the tip and provides it a much less stiff texture. I wouldn’t say these offered long run hydration however they felt pleasantly moist on my drier lips through the preliminary hour of damage however didn’t actually present linger hydration over a six hour interval nor did they even final for that timeframe as contact up was required inside two hours to keep up colour, shine, and moisture.
The excellent news is Revlon Kiss Balms are a step above Maybelline Child Lips and may go over large with lovers of Child Lips. There’s some good shine right here, incredible colour, and light-weight hydration. However the unhealthy information is you’re seeing long run moisture, properly, you’ll be upset! However for colour and shine these present each in aces!
