Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain - Romantic (swatches)

I'm going to be posting individual blog posts on each Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain shade that I currently own. I wanted to do kind shade comparisons of each shade with other shades that I own and find similar to it. 

This won't be a review because I will be compiling all the shades I have in some upcoming posts but I decided to do a brief rundown on every shade I have for fun. Today, I will be showcasing the shade Romantic.

Romantic is a straight up red orange. No other way to explain it. However, I have noticed that as it fades throughout the day, it gives my lips a nice "I just ate a popsicle" reddish tint. Me likey! I guess you can also consider it as a "Just Bitten" kind of stain ;P

I'll be honest, I was kind of disappointed when I applied this on the lips because I was expecting this color to be mostly red and less orange. At least, that's what the product made it seem like. Nevertheless, I think this color is still great.

Here are other lip products I own compared to Romantic. Romantic somewhat reminds me of Revlon's Sire. But expect a different comparison including that lipstick because there is another balm stain I think is very similar to it as well.
L-R: Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti, Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Romantic, Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart, N.Y.C. Sheer Red.
The closest that came to Romantic was Tutti Frutti but Tutti Frutti is a lighter orange color with no red hue in it whatsoever. Cherry Tart was almost there, however, it was more pink toned. I have no idea why I would think Sheer red would be even close but it's obviously not as it is a straight up red color.

Overall, this a nice and fun shade, especially for the summer. I don't think I'll get much wear out of it during winter time. But who knows, I do live in California. If you have a deeper skin tone, this color will look breathtakingly beautiful on you all year round. But I still recommend giving this shade a shot no matter what skin tone you are. It's really nice in person :)

Until Next Time,
