Whatta week it’s been! Even though it was shortened because of the holiday, mine was still jam packed. Guess what? I started training for a marathon this week. I’ve always been a recreational runner, I love the one on one time with my iPod. After lots of research, I decided to just go for it. We’ll see how it goes!
On to the beauty!
It’s the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain.
Revlon says: 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. Lightweight Lipstain + Moisturizing Balm. 100% of women who tried it felt their lips were instantly moisturized with a soft stain of color. Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required. These are$8.99 for 0.09oz.
Consider this the must-have lip product for summer 2012, it’s been everywhere! I’m just now getting around to featuring it on here, but trust me these babies can be used year round. They are said to be dupes for the Clinique Chubby Sticks, but what came to mind when I first saw them was the Tarte LipSurgence. These are nothing like the Chubby Sticks, which are nothing more than a sheer tinted lip balm (no stain). However, these are drugstore versions of the Tarte LipSurgence which also serve as a balm/stain. Tarte’s are more pigmented and leave more stain, but lets take price into consideration: Tarte’s is three times as much as the Revlon.
I don’t really have much to complain about these. They are smooth and pigmented and leave a stain after the balm fades away. It may take 2 or 3 times of applying to get the stain to remain on your lips. They are moisturizing to a point, but I wouldn’t say they “instantly moisturize” like Revlon claims. There’s even a decent color selection of 12 (Tarte only has 8!).
Where: Any Revlon retailer or here online. Price: $8.99 for 0.09oz.
Have you tried either the Clinique, Tarte, or Revlon balm/stains? Which one is your favorite?
I hope you guys have a great weeekend! Drink water and wear SPF.
