I love make-up but when it comes to lipstick, I’m lazy. I’ll apply it in the A.M. but that’s about it. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. That’s why I LOVE stains. Put it one once in the morning and you’re pretty much good to go. Any they look natural. So when I heard Revlon was coming out with balm stains, I was more than jazzed. And as you can see, I’ve amassed quite the collection! Of the 12 available, I have 8–the 8 that suit me most.
From Revlon:: It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood
From Me:: So far, I’ve really been enjoying these. They aren’t drying and really do leave a lovely stain. The only complaint I have is that the pink colors can kinda look the same on the lips, especially Lovesick and Sweetheart. AND in my experience, after reapplication, the color will appear deeper than the first application since your lips are already stained. So be aware of this. But all in all, I think these will be something I will use all summer. The pinks really are gorgeous and the red is going to be great for winter or more vampy looks. Rendezvous, the orange, may not be a color that gets as much use since it is ORANGE, but it’ll definitely blend well with a pink gloss or another stain to even it out.
Verdict:: Must buy, but don’t pay the full $7-8 each for these. Wait for them to go on sale in the drugstore and then go crazy, like I did 🙂
