In my opinion, Revlon is usually the best source for quality drugstore lipsticks. The last time I was at Target, I grabbed a couple of Revlon lip stain items to try: a Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain Pencil and a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain Balm. Both are nice and they work pretty well together too.
The Revlon Just Bitten stain is a standards lip stain with a pen applicator. I liked Just Bitten better when it came as a roller ball, but the pen does make application a bit easier. It lasts really well. I had a hard time washing the swatch off and it stayed on my lips for hours. It comes with a balm on the opposite end to wear over the stain, or you could put a clear or colored gloss over it.
Revlon’s new Just Bitten Kissable lip stain balm is a crayon lip color that provides a moisturizing stain. I really liked this product for its combination of long wear and comfortable feel. It comes with a twist up tube, so there is no sharpening needed and there is lots of product.
Here are swatches. On the left is the Just Bitten Kissable balm in 005 Crush Begun and on the right is the Just Bitten stain in Frenzy
Here I am wearing the products. I put the stain on under the Kissable balm. That made for a nice, longwearing combo.
I also did a quick video review of the products. You can see that below.
You can get Revlon products at any drugstore or big box retailer, and at many grocery stores. Or, look for them here at Drugstore.com. They run around the $8-9 price range.
