This bright red-orange shade is a summer staple. Lucy Hale just donned the hue at the Teen Choice Awards and this trend is leaping from clothes to your kissers. Check out her lips. I’m loving the look and spent quite a lot of time in Walmart makeup isle to find the perfect orangey hue for my kissers.
Let’s be real, orange lips are not going to work all year round, so I’m def looking for a budget buy and ended up opting for one of those Just Bitten lip crayons. After I used it once I seriously thought of returning it (Walmart will literally take anything, and I mean anything, back). After a few more uses, I’m hooked.
Tag: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, Rendezvous, $7.69 @ Target. (it’s cheaper at Target than Walmart)
Why I hated it: The color wasn’t saturated enough. I was looking for an in-your-face neon lip. This is a lip stain balm, so ended up with a more sheer tint.
Why I now love it: Like I said, orange lips are not the most versatile. It’s a statement, but thanks to the less-shocking pigment the color works with my lip tone to create a more blood-orange color and it’s gives me that trendsetter style with more wearability. Plus, this product feels awesome on. It’s hydrating, has menthol, and seals in the color for a fabulous finish.
