Gimmicky Lip Products?

 From Left to Right:
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick
I give this product 3 stars(out of 5). It's great as a stain(more of a glossy stain), I love how smoothly it glides on and the color is very pigmented. But the reason I rated it a 3 is because it sucks as a lip balm! Makes your lips feel moisturized but honestly, dries up my lips within 30 minutes.

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Cherish
I love Revlon's lipstains for their color choices but Cherish is not for naturally dark lips. The color that best suites me is Passion and that's the only reason why I buy this lipstain. It doesn't last for very long, so you constantly have to reapply, it runs out really fast and the tip dries out quickly. And i don't even touch the balm.
 NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo
OMG. I've been wanting something like this for some time now. Its such a unique formula that is kind of like...a lipstain meets a lipstick. And they have beautiful blush tone colors. Just make sure you have on a good chapstick on, beforehand or your lips will dry out -still not as drying as Revlon's Balm stain though.

Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart
This is my personal favorite. It is the most pigmented lip balm I have ever used and at the same time very buildable and sheer. It keeps my lips moisturized throughout the day and the color lasts for a good few hours. The only thing is that I wish they had more colors. Next color I'm aiming for is Tutti Frutti.

Yes. I personally do find them quite gimmicky. But, I love them nonetheless. Its fun to try on and they are unique. 
-Try the lip butters, I HIGHLY recommend them. 
-Buy your Revlon products from HEB, if you have access to one, they usually have a $2-3 dollars off coupon, this is the only time I buy their products.

Hoped you guys enjoyed my review and my first post ;).
