I was at CVS and was trying to get my extra bucks from Revlon so I had to get something relatively inexpensive. There were very few things that were less than $10 that were something I'd wanted to try. Then I saw the Just Bitten lipstains and the only color that looks like one I'd actually wear was the bright pink one which is the color "Passion." So here's the look I did wearing that on my lips.
As you can see, my eyes are really neutral for me. I have on the brown Urban Decay liner ("Bourbon") from the "Get Baked " palette, which I layered "Twice Baked" on top of. And then I think I just blended that out with a random light brown from my 88 palette. My highlight is MAC "Vanilla" pigment.
As for the lipstain, I really like it. I'd seen reviews of people saying how easy the marker-like tip made application... I kind of disagree. I personally like a bit more forgiving applicator, something that moves a little. The tip is really stiff, which is great if you want it to be super precise but I feel like lipstains are supposed to be a natural flush looking color (maybe not a natural color exactly but applied in such a way that literally it looks like you bit your lip and that's what color it turned, ya know?). I almost feel like I should dab it on with my finger but that's not a possibility so I just used the side of the marker instead of the tip.
Now, you definitely want your lips to be exfoliated. When I first bought it, I got so excited that I just put it on without doing anything to my lips first. Bad move. It grabbed on to all of the dry skin on my lips and made it stand out like crazy. So I tried again, this time I exfoliated, applied the balm attached to the lipstain, applied the lipstain, and applied the balm again. Perfection. It lasted a long time too, though I did have to reapply the lip blam (which is a really great balm) because my lips started to feel dry.
I think this would be a great product for a bride. I don't know about anybody else, but on my wedding day, I was too busy to reapply anything on to lips. So I definitely think this would be great for someone who wants a very low-maintenance lip color. The colors are pretty much all dark so if you like your lips lighter than their natural color, you'll probably have to pass on this. Personally, I think the one I bought is the only color I'd actually use because I like light lips. But I'd definitely recommend grabbing a color if one stands out to you! I think mine cost about $5.
I apologize for the non-exciting look but that's all I have for today! Thanks again for checking this out!!
