Have you ever wanted to pull off a certain style? You keep trying and trying to make this style work for you but it never seems to? That was me with dark lip color. I always envied the girls with dark burgundy or red lips and wanted to be one of them, but I could never pull it off.
Colors either did not look good on me, or would look good for about five seconds and then I'd rub my lips together (a bad habit of mine) and all of the color would be gone. Frustrated, I one day saw one of my friends with a beautiful lip color on. I asked her what it was and she said it was lip stain. I had always heard of lip stain, but I never took the time to try it.
Since I was just experimenting with a completely new product, I decided not to splurge at first, and instead went to my local drugstore and settled on buying a Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain. I loved it so much; I went out and bought five more shades.
It honestly confuses me as to why there are so many negative reviews about this product on various beauty review sites, but I love it. The color goes on smoothly and only takes one or two layers to get a full color pay off. My lips feel hydrated and moisturized after application and the color truly does last.
I've found that it's best to blot as you apply (pat your lips with a tissue after each application) to get the best long lasting effects. Finally, the product gives my lips a slight “tingly” feeling and smells minty. This is a huge plus for me, because I personally will not use a lip product if I don't enjoy the smell.
I would recommend this product to anyone. I know wear lip color almost everyday because of this product, and for $9 at your local drugstore, you really can't beat it.
