Review: Revlon Just Bitten LipStain + Balm in "Midnight"

Last weekend, I noticed that my local Walmart FINALLY re-stocked the Revlon Just Bitten LipStain + Balm colors. The color "Midnight" caught my attention because it reminded me of my Favorite Rimmel Lip Gloss that I'm always raving about.  I've tried Revlon's LipStains before in other colors, and liked them so I decided to give this one a try. And I'm happy I did!

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm is a two-in-one stain and balm for kiss-proof wear and shine. The vitamin-enriched formula provides your lips with lasting color and a lightweight feel while also protecting lips against free radicals with Vitamin C antioxidant protection. Just Bitten Lipstain by ColorStay has a smooth glide marker applicator on one side for precise application and a translucent stick balm on the other for instant moisture and a soft shine.

"Midnight" is a deep Burgandy/Red color and is very pigmented.  I apply the stain to exfoliated, dry lips to get the best color payoff.  The stain has great lasting power, but the balm seems to disappear from my lips rather quickly.

Cons:  While I do appreciate that this LipStain is the ONLY one that comes with a built-in balm, I must say that this balm is less than impressive.  It doesn't last on my lips, and the design sucks! A COMMON problem with this balm is that it Breaks Off very easily! Also, when you wear this stain you have to be ready to commit because it can be a pain to get off.  I definitely need a good Makeup Remover when I'm ready to take this product off.

Overall: If you don't like the feeling of lipsticks or lipglosses on your lips, but still want a bit of color, these Lipstains would be perfect for you.  The color pay-off is great, and the stain does last hours on my lips. And although I don't feel the balm works well at all, I would probably re-purchase this product because I really like the colors. 

Availability: $7- $9 at Drugstores, Walmart, and Target
