I don’t have very much info yet on these Chubby-pretenders, but I do have a sample and it’s very lovely indeed. Inevitably, everyone is going to compare these to Clinique Chubby sticks, and there is a difference in texture in that the Revlon Just Bitten is not quite as soft to apply as Chubby. However, the colour I have here, Lovesick, is definitely quite heavy on the stain aspect, giving both lipstain and a balmy effect.

In the US they’re $8.99, which Mr BBB informs me is about £6-ish, so when they launch (not sure when) they will definitely stand up against the £16 to lay down for a Clinique Chubby Stick. I would say that Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, which comes in 12 shades, is a very good budget alternative, but in terms of quality, Clinique nudges it.
