When I heard that Revlon were coming out with a matte range of their ever so famous Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains I let out what can only be described as a squeal of pure delight. Whilst I wanted to throw them all into my Boots' basket, at £7.99 each I behaved and opted for just one - a deep red that goes by the name of Standout (shade #250).
First off, the pigmentation is brilliant. Despite being a matte finish, it doesn't leave lips feeling dry nor does it cling to the skin. Unlike its predecessor, the matte range isn't designed to be a stain but the lasting power is great nonetheless. I did find application a little tricky, due to the chunky crayon design. Despite that, I love this shade and can't wait to get my hands on some more of the range.
Have you tried any of the new Matte or Lacquer range?
Are you as big a fan of red lipstick as I am?
