Lip Stain

 I am not usually one to shop around in regards to make-up. I usually stick with what I like and when I run out, I go out and buy the exact same product to replace the used up one. However, I had seen the Just Bitten lip stain commercials by Revlon and have always been curious about using a lip stain, so I took the plunge and I am very happy I did ( I was not payed or compensated in any way, this is just because I think this product is worth reviewing!).
Here are the pros:
 - Love that it has the lip balm on one end so your lips don't feel so dry, although sometimes I skip the balm and just add a little lip gloss over top of the stain.
- The maker-like applicator is so easy to use and evenly distributes color
- the $8.99 price tag

And for the cons:
-You don't get much of the product because of the lip balm at the one end. Covergirl offers one without the lip balm and I think I'll be trying that one next time.
- The color is very pigmented when you first apply it to your lips (I guess for some this could be a pro)  so I find dabbing it on my lips and then rubbing it in with my finger makes the color look more subtle.
-There are not many colors to choose from, and of course since it is drug store make-up, there are no "testers" to see what the colors will look like on you.

All in all I really do love this product and will definitely be purchasing another lip stain in the future. I got the Twilight shade because it looked to be the best shade for me, and I really like the shade on my lips. Has anyone tried a lip stain that they love? If you've tried Just Bitten, do you like it? Have a fabulous day!

I have the Covergirl! I'm newly obsessed with lip stains! I picked up the one from Tarte at Sephora and I have to say, I'm loving it so far as well.

I'll have to try this! I usually just wear lip gloss, but I've been looking for something with a little color!

I've have a lipstain by Tarte and I like it, but I'm definitely going to try the Revlon and Covergirl ones!
