'Darling' - Superdrug - £5.99
When I first read about these coming out they automatically reminded me of the Chubby Stick's from Clinique. I wanted to try them way back when they first were realeased but think they're just a tad over priced for what they are, I'd rather but a Mac lipstick for the price.
Like many other item's over here we only have 5-6 shade's compared to the 12 available in America (sadface)
I swatched all of the colour's in store and was actually quite impressed with them, they really do look like a tinted lip balm but actually have really good colour pay off, where as balm's tend to be quite sheer. I swatched them 6 hour's ago and they're still stained on my hand, I can't compare that to it being on my lip's but show's they stay a while! (apologies for the swatch photo, literally wouldn't come off)
What I love about these are they're a stain but also a balm, which instantly makes me think of longer staying power. Stain's tend to be in 'felt tip pen' form and can be quite drying. I love that Revlon have combined the two for more moisturising in the balm but the stain staying longer.
This shade is quite a lilac/blue pink and when applied to the lip's is darker.
These are effortless and great to just apply and go without worrying about being precise.
Revlon also have a darker red berry shade which will be perfect for winter if you don't like the full on dark lipstick.
At £5.99 I think it's a reasonable price although in Boot's they're currently £8.99, which is a little pricey for a 'drugstore' brand. So Superdrug may have this as an introductory offer.
In the range they also have another bright Barbie pink, a peach/coral and some dark shades. I'm sure everyone will find a shade they like and apply more or less depending on personal preference.
Overall I really love this idea of them being a stain too, they'll be handy to just apply quick and easily on my way to college if I'm in a rush.
Do you like this idea? Are you a fan of lip stain's?
