The great thing about lipstains is that they last forever! I literally rubbed my hand raw trying to get the swatches off.
Can you see the remnants? As I type, I'm staring at two berry colored stripes ;)
The thing that I dislike about them is that they are sort of difficult to apply in the sense that they dry very quickly on the lips and can be hard to blend out. I suggest applying a lip balm over them. Note: The Revlon version comes with a balm on the end. I like the convenience of it, but I love love love the color of Maybelline's Bitten Berry. The great thing about these is that they give color to the lips, but the color is still more muted than using a lipstick or gloss. I think it's a wonderful option for those of us who can be timid and mostly wear nudes.
Revlon's Twilight, topped off with the balm it comes with. It can be layered and made quite dark.
Maybelline's Bitten Berry. So pretty! It's subtle but still gives that berry hint to the lips.
On another note, Happy Friday Dears! My internet has been down at my house, and it unfortunately won't be back to normal until next week. So here's the scenario on this stormy evening in Southern California: Yours Truly, a strawberry vivanno smoothie, noisy (sexually curious) pre-teens cackling in the seats behind mine, my trusty little laptop friend, and my local Starbucks. Well, I have about five in my near vicinity so note to self: go to a locale that isn't positioned next to a school on a Friday night =) The boyfriend is away all weekend. What a horrible time to have lost internet access at home!
Have a Beautiful Weekend,
