Revlon Just Bitten

I was shopping around the other day and thought "Hey! I have never tried a lipstain before, I should try that!" and so I did.  There were not a ton of colors in stock so I went with Twilight.  Yes, I like the books and movies-lets just get that out of the way right now. Anyway, it is a darker color than I usually go for but like I said there wasn't a ton to choose from.  I think this product came out a couple of years ago, I remember a commerical with Jessica Biel laying in a flower field trying to play off the Twilight movies.  The commerical didn't impress me, but curiousity finally got the best of me.

 It is hard to tell what color you are going to get from the packaging.  I was expecting a more pink than red color.
 This is how it works:  one end is like a marker, yup, like you are coloring your lips with a marker.  The other end is a lip balm.  One side stains your lips and the other side softens and moisturizes them.
 Once the stain dries you don't have to worry about it smearing or coming off from eating, kissing or whatever... I literally tried to rub off the color with my hand and couldn't.
 Once the stain has dried you need to apply the balm to moisturize because the stain is drying and doesn't really look right without the balm.
 I wanted to show you this picture because when I applied the stain my lips were chapped and you can see that the stain did not absorb where my lips were dry.  If you have very chapped lips apply some chapstick first and then take that off and use the stain-otherwise the color won't go on even.  Also make sure you only put the stain where you want it!!

 This is how it looks finished with the balm.  It looks quite nice and feels quite nice.
 The balm sort of fixes and smoothes out the lipstain.
Overall I liked this product and would recommend it but it's not something I am going to stock up on.  Have you ever tried lipstain?  Thanks for reading! xxoo, Heather Honey

  9. That colour looks great on you. I have one of these in Passion. It is definitely very long-lasting and doesn't budge but like you mentioned it can be hard to get an uneven application. The balm definitely helps though.
