Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm – a review



Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm ads and flyers caught my attention because I’m a sucker for natural looking lips or my-lips-but-better-shades. And the idea of long-wearing lip color is too hard to resist!

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm in Frenzy

-Kiss-proof color with soft shine
-Nourishing balm for supreme comfort
-Lipstain and balm in one convenient, dual-ended package
-Lipstain marker provides precise application
-Color does not smudge or streak
-Contains vitamin C for for anti-oxidant protection
-Creamy, lightweight balm perfectly melts on lips for smooth, glide-on application
-Translucent balm provides instant moisture and soft shine
-Available in 10 lightweight shades

To use: Apply marker directly to clean, dry lips. Build color and coverage as desired. After 30 seconds add extra shine and moisture by applying the balm.

I love the handy packaging because it’s dual-ended with lip stain and lip balm at both ends saving space in my kikay kit. It’s actually my first time to use a marker tip, most lip stains have a sponge applicator.

From the choices at Watsons, most of the shades are loud and dark hues of red. I only saw 2 shades of Pink, I asked the sales assistant what’s the most natural looking lip color and she suggested “Frenzy”, so I bought Frenzy for Php 595.



Unfortunately, I find Frenzy too red and unnatural for me. When lip balm is applied, it even emphasized the burst of red color.

I have dry lips and my upper lip is darker.

Frenzy on me

It looks unnatural when lip balm is applied but I seriously need it because the lip stain alone dries up my lips. Although the lip stain/lip color stays for longer time even after drinking or eating, the lip balm needs constant re-application to prevent dry lips.

The marker tip is perfect for outlining but they should also vary the tip from narrow to wide so that I can fill the rest of my lips quickly.

To sum it up:

Likes:

  • slim and handy packaging
  • marker tip applicator which is convenient in outlining the lips
  • long lasting lip stain

Dislikes:

  • lip balm is easy to break if you’re not careful
  • lip stain dries up my lips
  • narrow marker tip so it takes longer to apply color
  • limited shades available
  • lip color may be blotchy if application is uneven

Will repurchase?

No

I’m still more interested with the Loreal Infallible Lip Duo Compact than this one.

  2. Try Lip Ice Sheer Color lip balm sis. It leaves a lovely reddish-pink “stain” on my lips long after the moisture (from the balm) has gone. And it’s really cheap too at just P145 at Watson’s. :) Hope that helps!
