One of the handful of lippies that won me over recently was Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain. You colour in your lips with what looks and feels like a highlighter pen (a friend pointed out that there's a certain naughty/forbidden element to it, its like drawing on someone with permanent marker), flip it over to apply a slick of lip balm, and you're sorted for HOURS.
|I can't say that I haven't been thinking of drawing|
pictures on people's faces when they're fast asleep...
It's a proper stain, so you can't really wipe/rub it off once it's on. It immediately sinks in, which will leave your lips feeling slightly dry if you don't follow with the lip balm. Of the two shades I got, I absolutely love Victorian. It's a cherry pink-red that would suit just about anyone, and I love that it creates an I'm-not-really-trying-too-hard-I-just-have-naturally-awesome-lips vibe.

|Revlon Just Bitten is available in 11 shades, |
so you're sure to find one you like. The down
side? The shades have annoying vampire-movie
inspired names like Desire, Dawn, Twilight,
Midnight, Mystical... We get it, we get it.
You can decide on how intense you want the colour to be - if you want it darker, you just apply more of it. Just be careful until you've found your happy medium, 'cos once it sits, it sits. So hopefully if you bump into me this winter, I won't be all pale lipped...
Revlon Just Bitten is available at a RRP of R105.
