Review: Revlon "Just Bitten" Lip Stains

And so the lip stain search continues with a stop at Revlon. I have to say that the name is what drew me in; there is this sultry connotation that accompanies the idea of "just bitten" lips. The colour that comes to mind is the perfect combination of a dusty rose with a hint of red.

I am happy with these lip stains but not completely smitten. The felt tip applicator makes them easy to apply and the colour does not bleed. On the other end of the applicator there is a clear balm that is meant to add extra nourishment and moisture to the product. The balm is fairly high quality and can be used on its own as a chap stick. The one qualm I have about the packaging is that the balm end is easily broken if you are not careful when replacing the cap.

These lip stains are fast drying, but they do leave the lips feeling slightly sticky for the first few moments. If left on their own, the finish is matte, but with the balm over top they have a definite sheen. These stains last longer without the balm-approximately 3-4 hours before they start to fade vs 3 solid hours with the balm on top (that is including social time of eating and drinking). The colour pay-off is impressive and smoother than competing brands such as MAC and Cover Girl (but I still prefer Lise Watier).

To sum up, for the price these are very good lip stains and will do the job nicely. The colour range is not massive and most of the colours fall under the dusty pink category.
