I purchased this today in "Passion" after I couldn't find the regular balm-less Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in "Sweetheart" thinking, "Eh...it's still a pink lipstain!" Plus the counter at Target where these were shelved had a thing that said these Just Bitten Lipstains+balm had been recognized by Allure as being super awesome or something so thought I couldn't go wrong! Well... I should have waited until I found the "Sweetheart" one... The Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm makes me feel like I'm applying lip product with a Sharpie. The pointed tip is good for precision on my lip's edges, but I need to fill in the rest of my lips using the side of the lipstain pen. I dislike how the balm is just kind of there...the Maybelline 24 hour lip colors have the balm attached to one end, but you can twist it out to avoid it breaking and coming off, whereas the Revlon one appears to have the entire balm already sticking out with no option to twist it down thus breakage is an accident waiting to happen! After first applying it onto my lips, the lipstain tingled and made my lips feel weird! After a few minutes, the tingly sensation did not stop. The color is buildable and does look nice, it doesn't transfer and the balm does help, however when compared to the regular Revlon Just Bitten Lipstains, I'd opt for the latter instead :/ Do not recommend! I give it a 1 simply because I do like the color pigmentation, but nothing else! Not the price, the packaging, how it made my lips feel, or the fact that it's difficult to remove all traces off my lips!
