Revlon Just Bitten Lips Stain Review

I went to my local drugstore, and as usual, I completely got side tracked by the Cosmetics section! They were having a sale on alsmost every line, so I took that as an opportunity to grab this baby!

According to the Revlon website (, this lip stain is supposed to do the following:

-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

And a cute little "applying" tip also posted there:

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.

My thoughts:

This lip stain provides good coverage. I found that just a light coat does the trick, however, I only tested the color Forbidden, since it looked like a Nude color. I think a second coat might be a little too much. When i tried on my lips, I found that it looks prettier if layered with an actual lipgloss....but I liked the sort of sheer, matte finish of this one. after applying, I tested it by trying to rub it off, and it did not! The balm was gone but my lips still had the sheer stain. I was able to remove the stain with an oil based eye makeup remover...a couple of get the swatch off my arm ;) Which is a plus.....think loooooong lasting !!!!!

Overall, I liked this stain. I do want to try more shades, but beware, most of them seem to be in the colored/bright side.
