Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain Review

 

The Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm  is perfect for a “beautiful wash of kiss-proof color and moisturising, softshine.” After using this product, I’d have to say that although it’s very pigmented, the marker is easy for a mess-proof application, and the lipstain/lipbalm combination is very clever, the over all product lacked in several areas.

The lipstain product was very drying and even though it comes with lipbalm, the lipbalm doesn’t do enough to aid the drying effect. In addition, the lipstain marker dries out after a couple of months, leaving it useless.  Another problem with the product is that it fades when you eat or drink, which gives you almost a red lipliner effect by the end of the day.

Overall,I really wanted to like this product, because I loved the colour and the lipbalm with the lipstain was a really good concept. Unfortunately this did fade on my lips and I found myself constantly reapplying the balm as it didn’t moisturise my lips well, or for very long.
