Okay, first off I'd like to say I do not like lip products. I know, I know. Beauty junkie who doesn't like lip stuff? Crazy. But most days some lip balm is all I want. My problem is I like color but not lipstick, shine but not gloopy glosses, and lasting color but have dry lips that don't fare well with most stains.
This product, however, is the solution!
Beautiful, bright, long lasting color in a balm form.
Application is simple with the chubby pencil shape, good for shaping lips. It has a light balm feel and is literally weightless on the lips. The main problem I have with lipstains is my lips are very dry so the marker type application isn't great. With the balm formula my lips were hydrated and happy! I didn't even need an additional balm on top. Also, this product has a nice, slight peppermint scent.
The color is initially very glossy and then once the gloss wears away, you are left with a beautiful flushed stain. (Very kissable!)
The shade 025 Sweetheart is a bright pink, somewhere in the middle of the range Revlon offers. The color reminds me of lips after you've been eating a strawberry popsicle or lollipop.
This was the first lip product I've like in a long time, and I know I'm going to pick up a few more. I found mine at Walmart for about $7. All around, the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain is a winner in my books.
Here's how it wore over time on me, with eating and drinking between shots!
Right after application
30 minutes after application
1 hour after application
4 hours after application (this stained color lasted for 8+ hours overall!)
