Drug Store Love: Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm in Twilight

Revlon Lip Stain  + Balm in Twilight
I don't usually pick up items from the Drug Store because I find that I am dissappointed in more instances than I care to count. Also, drug store prices seem to be catching up to your standard department store brands in some instances (something I find disturbing). But here is one of the rare instances where I was pleased: Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Blam.

Now I know you've probably seen the rediculous commercial with Jessica Biel in a meadow asking if you've been "bitten". If you have, then you'll totally understand why the shade I chose was "Twilight". Bitten... Meadow... Twilight... get it?

Once it's on your lips you won't feel it. The balm also makes it feel more natural, as my lips tend to dry a bit when putting on a stain.

Color wherever you want - it's easy. It can look a little streaky by itself, as you can see in my picture. But I have experienced that with nearly every lip stain I've ever tried. It stains fast, so work precisely and quickly!

When I wear mine I'm satisfied at least through mid afternoon, which is more than enough for me. I recommend finding one close to the color of your lips and to wear it under lipstick or with the balm by itself.

I think mine was $8.99 at CVS.

Bottom Line
Totally worth it when you compare it to the cost of MAC Prologwear Lip Stain Markers. The only downside is that Revlon's color range seemed pretty narrow with a lot of similar shades.

I picked up two - I don't remember the other one because it looked nearly identical to me as Twilight.
