No Biting

Once upon a time (a year ago)...in a land far far away (DC)...I tried to conquer the red lip.


{I just wanted to look cool like this girl. Is that wrong?}

Then I up and had a baby and I haven't worn lipstick since.

See, the thing about babies is that you need to constantly kiss them.  It's true.  Plus, they are always grabbing at your face with their adorable little hands.  And if you wear a lot of lip gloss and lipstick it just gets all over them.

And few things are grosser than lipstick on a baby.

And then I read the rave review of Revlon's Just Bitten lipstain in Gothic over at Ain't No Mom Jeans.

And then!  I went out and bought one.

The verdict?

It's pretty good!  Well.  It's pretty good.

The thing about lipstains is that they will never look like real lipstick.  It goes on like a magic marker and it's hard to get it totally even and mistakes are hard to fix.  Once it's on, it looks good and doesn't end up on whichever baby you are handling that day.

But it also wears off oddly, it's a little drying and again, doesn't have the oompf that real red lipstick has.


But it does make a boring outfit pop and makes you look put together and chic when you are just having a mommy date or hanging out by the swings.

P.S. Are you reading Ain't No Mom Jeans?  You should be.

  1. I realize this is an old entry, but have you tried the Revlon Lip Butters? Just enough color,not too shiny, and very moisturizing. Candy Apple is a good red for people who don't normally do red lips.
