A Match Made in Sheer Peach Heaven.

I purchased the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Charm when I was home in California a few weeks ago, and the first thing I noticed about it was its striking resemblance in color to my Clarins Lip Perfector in #2. So off I went digging into my makeup bag before realizing that I was an idiot and didn't bring it with me...biggest travel makeup packing mistake ever! As soon as I got home, though, I tried out the combo immediately and honestly, these two products were made for each other.

Wearing Clarins #2 over Revlon Charm.

The two shades are pretty much identical, although the stain left behind by Charm tends to lean a bit darker and more corally...think a much more muted version of MAC Costa Chic lipstick. Both products are quite moisturizing on their own anyways, especially the lip perfector, but together, I find that the lip perfector helps to seal in the moisture (and the color) even longer. Love it!

    Oh my goodness those are perfect for each other! I've toyed with purchasing Charm because I absolutely love the Kissable Balm Stains, but wasn't certain I'd feel comfortable with something so "nude." Looks like I'll be picking this up too! (I should keep a running count of the things I buy because of you: Costa Chic, Charm ... haha)

    It's actually a bit too pale on me when first applied, but the stain that it leaves after about 30 minutes or so is a gorgeous corally peach shade that is quite a few shades darker than the initial color, and it isn't too nude at all!

    Ooo, yay! Definitely check them out! Have fun in NYC :)

  17. They surely are meant to use together, love it! It looks a bit pale on first sight, but it works great on you! 

  18. I love the Revlon balm stains! I just haven't tried Charm because I don't think I could pull it off. I went for precious instead (:
