I’ve been interested in the Just Bitten Balm Stains ever since they came out. My first balm stain I purchased was the red one. It lasted me almost a year and unfortunately got finished. When I was out at Dis-Chem, I was hunting for a new Just Bitten Balm Stain. I wanted a more Plum shade or deep pink which was vibrant. Here’s my joke for the day… I was absolutely smitten when I came across the shade Smitten, plus it included a free shade called Honey. I was super excited and purchased both Balm Stains for R110.

I came home and immediately tested both shades out. These balm stains are intense shades and can be layered to intensify the shade even more. The Just Bitten Balm Stains are super long lasting and leave lips super moisturised and refreshed. As soon as you apply the Just Bitten Balm Stain to your lips, you get a lovely menthol and minty fresh scent on you lips with a slight tingle as well as that “cold” feeling for a few seconds.

Putting the Balm Stain to the Test: I applied my Balm Stain to lips at 7 am in the morning and I was pretty pleased that at 11 am I still had balm on my lips which didn’t look blotchy or horrible looking.

Just Bitten comes in a strong plastic tube which has a silver twist at the bottom. The balm stain is a lot like a jumbo crayon and much like the famous Chubby Stick. As soon as you apply the balm stain, you’ll notice your lips have a slight “glossy” look which is convenient. This balm stain is definitely for a girl on the go and is simple to use, you really can’t go wrong!

Smitten is a deep pink/plum shade which is just too cute, it will suite most skin types and really isn’t for the faint hearted! It is intense and super vibrant, while Honey is a light colour, a very pale pink which just adds a tint to lips, this balm stain is much more natural and will suit very fair skin tones.

I would really recommend you give this product a try because these balm stains are very long lasting and come in a range of super cute and trendy shades.
