Beauty:Just Smitten


I really love the idea of lipstick, but I also really love to eat. Often. As in, I need food every 2-3 hours. Which presents a problem if you’re like me and are often too busy/lazy/forgetful to remember to re-apply lipstick.

Enter Revlon’s Just Bitten lip stain, which I picked up at CVS on a whim one day. I grabbed a Crave (pinky-plum) from the display, took it home and tried it, then promptly went back to the store the next day to buy another color. I bought yet another one (Flame) yesterday, so I think it’s fair to say I’m hooked.

The just-ate-a-popsicle color + won’t-rub-off convenience (those swatches on my hand stayed put through 5 hours of cleaning and laundry) is perfect for summer. I’m thinking stained lips, lots of bronzer, and big lashes is going to be my warm-weather look this year…

Have you tried lip stains? What’s your favorite?

    Do they make your lips feel really dry? I find that the stay-put lipsticks do… but I’ve never tried a lip stain

      The Revlon ones come with a moisturizer on the opposite end…I still wind up slathering some lip balm on top, though.

    Thank you for the recommendation! I never keep my lipstick up during the day like I should and this is an excellent alternative. I bought Frenzy yesterday and love it. And it’s really nice that it doesn’t dry your lips out like other long-last products do. Now if only I could find Crave– I do love some berries!

    Thanks for the idea! I found the perfect shade of red for my olive skin! Got Frenzy and looks awesome!

      Woohoo, congrats! It is HARD to find the perfect shade of red.
