How To: "Just Bitten" Lips


I have three posts lined up for today, including this post from the past, so please be sure to scroll down and check them all out!

Lip stains have gained a big following within the past couple of years, and for good reason. These products promise long-wearing, kiss-proof action. Who doesn't want that? A favorite drugstore brand is the Just Bitten line from Revlon. The stain features a marker-like applicator as well as a balm. 

When I tried the Just Bitten line, I would always sneeze (for some odd reason), I found the product drying, and that the color didn't last long. I knew there had to be a way to achieve that "just bitten" lip look using what I already had in my makeup collection. Here's my super easy tip for how I do it at home:
just bitten

Pretty simple, right? And this is very easy on the budget, since you likely have everything already. Since so many of you are into natural-looking makeup, give this a try. Additionally, you can use shades that you like or that are complimentary to your skin tone.

Do you like the Just Bitten line (or any lip stain)? Would you try this technique? 

PS: I posted three times today, so I hope you find a post (or more) that you might like!

  5. I haven't loved the lip stains either, but I do like the idea. Do you just line your lips or fill them all in? Probably a dumb question, but I didn't know cherry chap-stick had much color.

  6. What a great tip, will need to try this one day :) I have tried the Revlon felt tip marker lip stains and I have to say I prefer their crayon version much more.

  8. I'm with you- I find most true lip stains to be drying, which is not something I'm willing to suffer through during the winter when my lips are already almost-chapped! :)

  15. That is a great trick to get the color and moisture! I tried these just bitten and didn't like them at all but the just bitten kissable balm stains (the chubby stick ones) I absolutely love!

  22. I tried a similar product a couple of years ago, I think it was Covergirl - I loved the look but I find it very drying for my already dry lips. With a gloss overtop, though, they're less natural but still really pretty :)

  25. I tried a similar product and hated it. It gave me "fruit punch" lips. Not a fan.
