Review: Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm

Hello Snowdroplets!!

First off, I must apologise for the pretty serious lack of posts – but I do have an excuse, I was on holiday for two weeks and then have been crazy busy with my handmade jewellery business, Snowdrop Gifts, which I may be posting more about soon. In the meantime though, if you’re interested it would mean a lot to me if you liked my Facebook page, unimaginatively titled, wait for it… you guessed it 😉 – ‘Snowdrop Gifts’!!

But anyway, on with this post. I recently went to a small car boot type thing where there was a reasonably sized make-up stall claiming to sell ‘Big Names, at Small Prices!’. Well, how could I resist! I couldn’t believe my luck when I spotted a small basket of Revlon’s new Just Bitten lip products, for only £2 each (in Boots they’re £7.99!). I’m not actually sure which shade mine is, it does say Dawn/Aube on one side of it, so maybe that is it. I don’t know – sorry! But it is just the right amount of colour for me, I reckon. It’s a fairly natural lip colour, but just a bit brighter and more red, but nothing show stopping, which is what I like about it.

I must confess, I’m not a huge fan of the texture of the stain, it reminds me a bit of a watery felt tip, but maybe I’ll get used to that. The balm is smooth and moisturising though, so I tend to put that on before applying the stain, and then again after to seal the colour and stop it from being too matte.

But, I do really like it, especially as it is both a lip stain as well as a balm, and think it’ll be perfect for quick touch-ups during the school day. It will probably become a permanent addition to my blazer make-up pocket! Another great thing about it is that the colour does seem to stay for quite a while, making it even more practical. Snowdrop recommends!!
