On my most recent drugstore detour I picked up a few winners from Revlon:

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm:

I am keen on achieving a perfect pink pout, so I decided to test drive Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm in Passion. I am generally a big fan of lip stains, but find most formulas to be drying without gloss. Revlon’s Just Bitten lip stain marker has two ends, one for color, the other with a clear gloss to set and smooth the shade.

Passion Lip Stain Marker Tip
The two pronged approach simplifies the application process and eliminates the mess that came with old school lip stains. I did find it a bit difficult to get the stain to apply evenly, but, as intended, the gloss helped smooth out and set the color.  Easy application, and long lasting color makes this the perfect product to throw in your bag and reapply as needed. 
The Just Bitten product line has a nice range of colors, including Passion, a shade of barbie pink that is perfect for summer. Check out my swatches below:

Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss:
Revlon Colorburst Lip gloss in  Papaya and Peony
My new favorite drugstore product is easily Revlon Colorburst lip gloss. The packaging looks and feels high end, the gloss is super shiny without being drying or sticky. I tried the shades Papaya and Peony, and will likely be picking up a few more because I liked them so much. Papaya was semi-opaque while Peony was more on the sheer side with micro glitter. Peony will very likely wind up in my daily lip gloss rotation.

    thank you for sharing-I have been wanting to try the colorburst gloss for a while but was afraid to because I generally find gloss to be sticky and goopy…but I heard good things about it before, and now you’ve cemented them! yay!
