I've never been big into lipstick. I don't like how it feels and I hate having to wonder if it's wearing off or smudging or caking or doing anything else weird. So I usually stick to tinted chap-sticks or glosses and focus the va-va-voom on my eyes. But with all the brightly-hued shades making a comeback this year, I told my friend Stefani (makeup artist extraordinaire) that I really wanted to find a bold peachy-coral shade that wouldn't "kiss off." She pointed me in the direction of Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain collection, and it was a match made in heaven! These colors are saturated and vibrant, and they stay on ALL DAY LONG. I never have to worry about keeping a compact on hand, and my husband doesn't refuse to kiss me because true to it's name, it's totally "kissable." My current favorite shades are Lovesick (hot pink) and Rendezvous (peach/coral), but I'm also enjoying Smitten (berry), Romantic (red), Adore (wine/burgundy) and Charm (light peach). This product is fabulous, and so reasonably priced. It's in the $12-$15 range and available at your local drug store!
