Bunnie Likes: Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain & Balm

throughout the year, many cosmetic companies have jumped on to the lip stain bandwagon. so what makes the revlon just bitten lipstain & balm stick out from the crowd? besides that the names of the shades mildly relates to twilight *shivers*, a moisturizing balm is incorporated since stains tend to be drying.

wanna hear my thoughts?

"Lipstain + Balm for a beautiful wash of kiss-proof color and soft shine"
i bought mine from walmart for about $8.00CAD. you get 0.09oz/2.5g of stain and 0.05oz/1.4g of balm.

the scentless stain does a decent job: lasts for 5-6 hours with minimal fading. Using the balm may alter the amount of fading. i have the shade in passion which is a bright pink that can provide a natural flush or a vibrant hue with several applications.

the specially designed cap creates an airtight seal around the marker tip to prevent it from drying.

the balm gives somewhat of a shine and i don't mind the waxy feeling. i'd like the balm a whole lot more if it is retractable so i don't nick it every time i use it >.< i've also noticed that the balm makes the stain fade but it leaves a hideous (and talk about obvious) lip line...

just like any lip stain, you need to prep your lips by exfoliating prior to application. DON'T! and i mean do not ever! (seriously) put lip balm on before the stain. it might seem beneficial at first but you're really only building a barrier between your lips and the stain, causing it not to cling on, thus, fading occurs.

swatched once/ swatched multiple of times
overall, the revlon just bitten lip stain & balm gets an 8 outta 10. i don't love it but it works and the idea of the balm makes it convenient. it's portable and the amount of colour deposit is easily controlled on your liking. i do, however, prefer the joe fresh ones over these.

  2. well, its not too pricey ;) 8 bucks at walmart. haha i would have such a hard time with that
