Review/FOTD: Revlon Colorstay Just Bitten Lip stain/Balm

Hi guys! Today I will be review a new product I recently purchased.


Name: Revlon Colorstay Just Bitten Lip Stain+Balm
Where to buy: Any drugstore
Price: $8.99 at my local Rite Aid
Volume: 2.9g for the stain, 1.4g for the balm

Video review:

Pros:
--NOT DRYING!!! I cannot emphasize this enough!!
--Not scented.
--Long lasting (It lasts about 3-4 hrs on me w/ eating greasy food, etc. It lasts about 6 hrs if I don't eat)
--The balm is the THE BOMB!! OMGWTFBBQ?!! This has the BEST consistency out of any balm I've tried. I would spend $9 just for the balm alone.
--Huge shade selections. There were about 10 colors or so.
--Special market cap to keep the applicator from getting dry.

Cons:
--The shades go on about 1-2 shades darker than they appear in the tube.
--Less balm than stain<---a con in my opinion cuz I LOVE the balm.

Just the stain:

With the balm:

Let's go take a hike! (pic heavy/clickable)

So, as many of you may know, Boulder is always sunny and surrounded by mountains. As a general rule here, one has to be somewhat physically fit and active. Since I'm neither, I've made a goal for myself that I will exercise at least 3x a week. Since I just got here, I'm still not 100% adjusted to the high altitude yet. I decided to start slow and went on an easy hike with Nathan on a sunny day. The weather really IS beautiful here.

The place we went called NCAR, which, I THINK, stands for National Center for Atmospheric Research. It's at the base of a rather tall mountain. The trail we went on was called the Table Mesa trail, I think.

On the way there:



Starting the trail!! 

Along the way:

Look Ma! I found the Hidden Valley!! 




Make a wish! 



The narrow road

We saw a fox! He was NOT scared of us.

A view of Boulder

Note to self: Taking cutesy myspace pic is NOT as easy as it seems. We failed.

Thanks for joining me today! Hope you enjoyed the pics! Have a wonderful day!
