Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain

My two best friends and I stopped in Ulta about two weeks ago. I was looking for a lipstain and my friend recommended Cover Girl's Outlast lipstains. However, I really wanted a red lipstain which unfortunately Ulta was out of in the Cover Girl brand. We checked out Revlon's lipstains which were on sale (buy 2 get 1 free). Plus, Revlon included a lip balm on the other end. We picked up three and split the cost three ways.

I chose Crave (berry) and Gothic (bright red).

Both are gorgeous colors. I especially like Crave for the Fall.

At first, it was kinda weird applying this lipstain because it was like I was coloring in my lips with a magic marker. However, I found it easier to "stay in the lines"/be more precise which is good considering it is a stain. 

The pigment in these lipstains are great and you can build the color from slightly stained to full on lip color. I'm glad Revlon included a balm because as soon as you apply the stain you can feel the stain drying which makes your lips feel slightly tight/dry. The directions say to apply the balm 30 seconds after the stain.

I wore Gothic for about four hours before I had to reapply. The stain on my bottom lip looked good, I just needed a touchup on my top lip.

Left: Crave
Right: Gothic

The only downside to these are they really show even the slightest dry, chapped lips. The stain really sinks into these areas making the lip color appear blotchy and messy. I highly recommend exfoliating your lips before applying to get an even color.

Overall, I really like these lipstains. I'm new to lipstains, so if you have any recommendations on other colors or brands to try, I'd love to know!
