Doing Drugstore: Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain

The lovely GiggleSugar is just gaga over Revlon's Just Bitten lip stain. "Try it," she told me. "It's amazing." Well, it turns out she wasn't joking for once!

Just Bitten is available in four reddish tints, but I followed Giggle's lead and tried it in Berry Juicy. It has a light fruity fragrance, and though it's a little too "fake fruity" for me, the scent is not overpowering. The consistency is just like water, but the roller ball controls how much comes out; I found that just a little swipe covered my lips completely, giving them a sheer wash of red. To see a picture of Just Bitten in action,

Admittedly, my application could have been better, but I like how fresh this color is. It isn't obvious, but it brightens my face a lot. Just Bitten costs $11.50, which seems pricey for a drugstore product until you see how long the roll lasts. Compared to the boutique-brand alternatives, it's a steal.

Def. similar to Benetint except not as purple. Interesting that the lip stain trend has finally trickled down to drugstores.

I like lip stains better cause my hair won't stick to them, but my problem is I'm roller ball challenged. I've found that dabbing it on my lips and using either a Q-tip or my finger works well.

if you take the roller off and apply with a Q-tip... It goes on perfect! just a tip. :-)

I really want to try a lip stain but I'm not really into red lips because I have red hair and fair skin. It's not a good look on me.

it looks just like benetint. it is nice that the application is on a roller ball, benetint is impossible to take with you so this looks much more portable.

This product doesn't last very long on me. I also found it hard to apply.

I like Sonia Kashuk's (at Target) lip stain better then the Revlon one. I searched high and low for this Revlon one and ended up a bit dissapointed. The SK one smells like roses and it's a perfect stain color!

I don't like the red colors, I'd rather have one in a pink/peachish color.

I don't care for lip stains. I like lipstick. Semi-matte. Red. Red. Red.

I have the cherry tart color of the Just Bitten product and it seriously turns your lips into a Gwen Stefani/Christina Aqulierla-like hot red! It stays on forever too.

that color shown above looks just like Benetint, definitely. I like using Benetint under a gloss cause even when the gloss wears off, my lips still have the hint of color

Revlon's products are getting increasingly pricier but they don't represent a majority of the drugstore brands. It's sad because the quality of their products is going down, in my opinion. I bought the lip stain in blood orange and it looks good but it doesn't last nearly as long as my Benetint. I find the brush in Benetint is easier to use but the rollerball in Revlon's stain isn't too bad.

Hmmm, I am intrigued. I haven't used lip stain before, but at $11, this might be worth a shot.

I was going to try this, but got too distracted by that strange lip sugar stuff Revlon is trying to push.

This stuff was a total waste of money. It doesn't last at all. Maybe 10 minutes after you put it on all that’s left is a line at the edge almost like a lip liner. Oh and don't kiss anybody because it will come right off. I give this negative stars, it certainly wasn't worth the 11.50$ I paid.

At Longs and Rite Aid, you can return them even if they were opened.

Gen, For warmer skin tones, try the shade called "Blood Orange". It's kind of coral-peachy--I love it anyway!
