Save VS Splurge: Lipstick

As you might already know, I am a product nerd. (you might remember my Beauty Awards a while back) I love to go "research" new make-up. I usually stick with department store brands- I love Trish McEvoy, Laura Mercier, Dior, Chanel- I am super excited about Marc Jacobs new line! I have tested "drugstore brands" against high-end "department store brands" several times and the high-end brands seem to win on quality. People can tell me all day long that they love Maybelline Great Lash Mascara over all else- but it only took one try to know that DiorShow is far superior! SO...I have found a product that the drugstore brand is FAR superior to the High-end brand...sad to say! I seriously HEART Trish McEvoy and I seriously HEART her Essential Balm stick..however, I have found that it has flaws: 1) it needs to be sharpened, super annoying when it is in your purse and you don't carry a lipstick pencil sharpener around 2) the color doesn't really last like I would like it to 3) it is $28...not easy to grab 9 of them if you love it 4) there are only 2 colors...I like options!  

The alternative....Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain 1) it rolls up, no sharpening 2) the stain lasted through an entire meal (that never happens for me 3) it is $8-$9, easy to grab a couple 4) There are 12 shades! 5) it smells yummy! 

This is seriously my new favorite- hope you like it too!
