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!

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.
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:
- slim and handy packaging
- marker tip applicator which is convenient in outlining the lips
- long lasting lip stain
- 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
I’m still more interested with the Loreal Infallible Lip Duo Compact than this one.
