I've read a few reviews from fellow bloggers who've tried Revlon's lip stain called Just Bitten. I usually use Benifit's lip stain, but since this drugstore version is a fraction of the price, I thought I'd give them a try.
What I love about Revlon's lip stain is they come in a variety of colors (not just a red & a pastel pink shade like Benefit). Revlon's version is also really easy to apply, with the tip of the stain resembling a marker you use to "draw" on the stain. The other side of the pen is a balm to give the matte stain a little sheen.
I love stains because you get the dramatic effect of color without the mess of a lipstick & they also tend to last a bit longer (I've worn Just Bitten a couple times in the last week & the stain seems to last a couple of hours before I had to reapply).
I purchased Gothic (top) which teems to be a bright true red & Twilight (bottom) which is a darker red. I absolutely love the color of Twilight & have worn it day & night & even to work. It's definitely versatile & work appropriate.
