Revlon Just bitten Lip-Balm Stains

DSC05882
Finally got something that has been on my wish list forever!! omggg I am so excited to own four of them!! I wanted to buy more but my common sense stopped me just in time lol!

I went into CVS to buy some notebooks (they have the best college ruled notebooks btw) I prefer them to Mead or any other brand. I passed by the Revlon aisle and my legs stopped walking. I wanted to get the butters but I reasoned out because I personally love stains more than creamy lipsticks, so I decided to get the stains plus the colors all looked the same (or looked like something I already had -__- sigh. it has come to this…….I may be buying less lippies for the sake of being Frugal.

I am currently trying not to spend money unnecessarily. Honestly I feel like blogging/reading blogs has brought the monster in me. shopping is like a click of the finger and its not doing so great with my empty wallet. I made a pact with myself to only buy when I’m sure the item is completely empty, and I don’t have a lesser substitute. If not I will use the lesser substitute until it is finished. 

So far I have been doing good. SO good that I ran out of Argan oil and conditioning curl cream and detangler all on the same day and I had to just recently order more from Sally’s. normally I would re-order a new one when its halfway and stock it but I noticed when I do that I tend to spend money I don’t have. This way, it is kind of frustrating without such hair products but waiting one week wont kill me. Plus I am proud of myself Open-mouthed smile

Sorry for the long Tangent lol.

back to the lippies!!

  • 100% of women who tried it felt their lips were instantly moisturized with a soft stain of color Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required
    product info taken from revlon.com and ulta.com


  • Moisture: It is not moisturizing. It’s a lip stain so that is not its primary focus but I do have to state that out of all the general lip stains I have tried it isn't drying like any general lip stain, it is kind of in-between the moisture of a regular  lipstick and a regular liquid lip stain. you do have to put lip balm on top. It has a mint/tingly feeling (which I like) It can be a bit heavy/waxy/balmy? on the lips too. Which I don’t really care much for (it doesn’t bother me).



  • Stain-ability: The darker stains last longer. Still going with my theory of darker stained lippies that always last longer lol. The lighter ones are long lasting as well but don’t undergo crazy makeup removing to remove. The two dark reds/pinks I had to use makeup remover to get them off because they really stain your lips.

    Before we start seeing more swatch pictures here’s a pic of my bare lips so you can see. They're pretty dark (almost as close to my skin tone but a little darker and pinker). That’s why I always wear lipstick because some girls can go without lipstick, if I did I’d look like I was sick or lost some blood (just totally washed out).

    The color is beautiful but for my skin tone, and this one, less is more. I cannot go full on (as in the pictures above) outside. It looks so weird with my undertone. I wish it was more peachy than Florida orange-y. It looks nice with one layer and not too heavy. Its still my favorite (I am still in the peach/orange lippie phase lol). It is pretty shiny which I don’t like and has some gold glitter in it (y’all know I HATE glitter) sigh. but I still like it. still do.

    Love this color! it may not show how flattering it is on camera :( sigh. could never depict it right. But it almost matches my lip color (one layer-its light purple looking pink). I LOVE purple pinks lol but what I like about it is that it matches my skin tone very well and can look really natural [maybe she’s born with it] ha-ha.  It’s not as highly pigmented as the other three, so I have to pile on more than once to get a distinct color. sometimes I wear it light sometimes heavy. It also doesn’t last as long as the other three in my opinion.

    The name matches this color perfectly. It is a very distinct hot pink. I don’t see anything special about it. It is very pigmented. I don’t hate it but I don’t LOVE it either. Its just pink. lol
