When I started blogging over six years ago, Revlon were one of the most talked about drugstore beauty brands for three products in particular. The iconic ColorStay Foundation which is still a foundation I love to this day, the ColorBurst Lip Butters which were discontinued and the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains which again were discontinued. I can’t believe Revlon ever discontinued their lip butters or balm stains because oh boy were they popular. I feel like Revlon never really replaced them until lately with their Plumping Lip Cremes and their newest exciting lip launch, well until now. The new Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint Collection instantly caught my attention and their inspiration being K-Beauty made me even more eager to try them.
When I got my hands on the Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint Collection, they instantly reminded me of another of my favourite lip product formulas; the Lancome Juicy Shakers. The packaging is kinda similar, except the Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint has a much longer, elongated tube rather than the short and stubby tube of the Lancome version.
There’s no shaking involved with these, but their applicators are identical as is the effect so if you’re looking for a Lancome Juicy Shaker dupe, these may be well worth a try and they’re just £7.99 instead of £20.
Plush tip for a lush lip! With its soft cushion tip, this lip tint delivers a stain of color—and tons of moisture.
You get the look of a lip stain—beautifully blotted, weightless color—with the lushness of a balm
The pillowy soft cushion tip helps to evenly distribute the tint and makes it easy to build for more impact

There are a total of ten different Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint shades available and I have six of them. Both these and the Lancome Juicy Shakers contain oils for a nourishing effect on the lips, and they both have a pillow soft cushion applicator which you can blot onto the lips for a subtle tint, or swipe for a stained effect inspired by the K-Beauty Popsicle lip trend. If anything I find that these Revlon lip tints have more pigmentation than the Lancome version, and they last so much longer too.
Pretty Kiss – a super sheer pinky brown nude.
Fancy Rose – a deep, intense brown nude.
Pink IRL – a sheer cool toned medium pink.
High End Coral – an intense bright orange.
Berry Lit – an intense bright fuchsia pink.
Crimson Feels – a bold bright red.
Pretty Kiss is my favourite shade as it’s so sheer and it imparts the perfect amount of colour for everyday when you want something simple for your lips which isn’t something you need to prep your lips for, you don’t need to use a lip liner and you don’t a mirror.
Should you prefer a bolder, and more intense colour the other five shades are more intense especially Fancy Rose. Fancy Rose was the hardest to apply due to how pigmented it is, it can look a little streaky compared to the other shades but you can achieve a more blotted effect by using your fingertip to apply.
All six shades are super comfortable on the lips, and they feel akin to a lip balm with a pretty stain left behind once the initial sheen has worn away within an hour or two. I’m not into the whole ombré lip trend, but this formula would work well for those that do. I really like the applicator on these as the cushion gives the lips a very gentle exfoliation whilst you apply too. Whilst the Revlon Lip Butters and Kissable Balm Stains will forever be my favourite Revlon lip products, the new Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint are a great alternative.
Which of the Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint shades is your favourite?
