This is a rubbish product. I just bought it and i liked the color and stay. But I left the lid not properly secured for a couple of hrs (unintentionally of course) and when I wanted to reapply ,it was completely dry. I tried wiping it with a dry tissue as stated on the packaging, but no luck. It is like a stupid board marker , I had to throw it , would prefer other liquid lip tints. This is a no buy.
I have this in nothing but nude. The colour is good and doesn't transfer but it lasts about ten minutes! Have to constantly reapply and it also dries really quickly. Not a bad product but not a great one either.
I have this in Carry on Cherry. It dried after a week but still usable and hasn't gotten any drier (been about 6 months now?) It looks gorgeous on and isn't drying at all, even on it's own. The lasting power isn't too great though, its usually gone after one meal. Of course re applying would be the solution but I bought a stain because I hate reapplying in public like lipsticks. I will finish this tube but I'll try another stain/tint next time.
this for me is a great product because I've always liked the color and shape of my lips. I wore lipstick anyway for a more finished and glamorous look, but it does change the way people see your lips. This is like lipstick without the lipstick effect, and without the ickiness after you've been wearing lipstick for a while, eating, drinking, etc.I use the moisturizer and the color seperately.
It is definetly long lasting, even when it fades it still leaves a "natural" redness on your lips.
The only con is the colours are very limited. Maybe they will come out with more. The price is average.
My shade: I have 700 Nothing But Nude and 600 Carry On Cherry
All the colour of a lipstick, but without the thick drying feeling of one.
All the colour of a gloss, but without the shiny stickiness.
Lasts a long time despite eating/drinking/kissing.
Comes with a clear balm to moisturize
Limited colour choice.
The Cherry shade sometimes looks a little messy when applied unless down very carefully.
Smell and taste a little odd.
Cherry colour transfers a little.
This is a really great product! I stumbled across this when I was searching for the Revlon just bitten lip stain and balm. I am really glad I found this! I think the quality is better than the Revlon one and it is cheaper. I bought the colour "timeless tango" and what I like about it is that you can build the colour to the effect you want. When I go to work and want something more natural I just sweep it lightly over my lips and when I want to go out in the evenings I can add more layers and the colour really stands out! The staying power is amazing! I specifically watched the clock and checked the mirror frequently and it stayed on about 8 hours and that includes eating, drinking and sleeping! I also dont find this one as drying as the Revlon one. I find that when I use Revlon I need to keep adding the balm throughout the day because my lips feel dry but with Rimmel I do not need to do this as my lips stay moisturised throughout the day. The consistency is also very nice. Its not too glossy like lip gloss (I hate that because your hair always gets stuck to it!) and not so matte like a lipstick. The only reason I took one Lippie off was because I think the balm stick is a bit short and if you use this product every day it could run out very fast (The Revlon balm stick is longer). Overall I am very impressed and it is a good replacement for lipgloss or lipstick. Will definitely buy again!
I *think* these might have gotten discontinued, which is a shame because they are a really good product. (FWIW though, Rimmel still has them listed on their site) I bought a couple when I saw Meijer clearancing them anyways. Like most of the felt tip lip stains, I like the fact that the color is very controllable and buildable. They are drying without any balm, but much like the Revlon stains.. Rimmel has added a balm to the end of these that moisturizes lips amazingly well after application of the stain and doesn't fade the stain. I purchased these in 2 colors, Nothing but Nude and Endless Blossom.
Nothing but Nude is a fabulous MLBB shade that has a bit of rosy tint without being brown, orange, or other unflattering shades that lots of nude tints/stains are on my lips. Combined with the balm, it makes my lips look like themselves only way better. I love that the balm just makes the color look moist...not overly shiny, greasy, or sticky.
Endless Blossom is one of my favorite lip products, possibly ever. It turns my lips the perfect shade of pink that looks completely natural. Basically the lighter pink version of MLBB. Again with the balm, the look is completely natural.
If you can find these, they are a must try IMO. One of the better drugstore stains I have tried and almost all the colors seem to be very natural and wearable.
I have this product in 610 Boundless Sunset which is an orange shade and I have to say as soon as I used it I fell in love with it. I have tried so many other lip tints in the past but always ended up with dry cracked lips but because has the lip balm as well my lips stay moisturised and the colour only needs topped up once maybe twice a day unlike so many other lip tints.
I love it how it makes your lips look very natural. I have mine in nude and the feeling of it on your lips after applying the balm isnt drying or glossy. It just feels really nice and natural! It looks natural too!
If you find lipsticks are overbearing then these lip tints would suit you :)
I regret not getting a bolder colour so maybe stay away from the nudes and really grasp those berry and red colours ! :) Overall Its a great product!
These lip tint pens are such a great alternative to lipsticks and lip gloss's if you're after the 'natural make-up' look.
It looks (feels when applying) like a felt tip pen, and has a lovely delicate fruity smell. the one I use is the perpetual plum which gives a really nice natural, rosy red colour and stands out really well against my pale skin.
you just colour in your lips, not forgetting the corners, (they do feel a little dry after applying the lip tint), let it dry, then go over with the balm.
the staying power is...good...but it's not great, but it's definitely transfer-proof! so you won't be leaving lipstick smears on glasses but it does start fading after an hour or 2 of daily wear.
Over all it's a great little thing to have, but i wouldn't say it was better then any other lip tint i've tried. it is the only one that comes with a balm, but tbh any lip balm over lip tint will do the same trick. (and the balm that comes with doesn't last long either)
I'd definitely recommend it to any one, just know that there are other lip tints that do pretty much the same thing at pretty much the price as well.
