I decided last week that I would use my Boots points to buy a new lipstick and eventually found the 1000 Kisses lip tint by Rimmel. I have to admit I was drawn in by the pretty packaging, smell and the lip balm on the end and then was convinced to buy it once I saw how pretty the colour was. Oh, how wrong I was.
This product smells delicious and the balm is absolutely great, but the actual lip tint is probably one of the worst products I've ever bought. It worked fine the first time, but decided on the second time of using it that it would pretty much completely dry up so next to no tint actually came out of the marker-like end.
This makes my next point sound even more stupid because, as an attempted replacement, I went searching through the bargain bin in Boots and found the Revlon Just Bitten lip stain and balm in Passion. I'm oh so glad I only paid £1 for this instead of the full £7.99 otherwise I would be taking it back, much like I'm going to do with the Rimmel tint. I'm keeping it however, as £1 is next to nothing and the balm is good enough to warrant me keeping it. Again, the stain worked really well first time and was a lovely pink colour and actually worked for the second time too, but the nib had dried up almost completely just days after opening it and I was once again disappointed.

Both products needed stupid amount of pressure and shaking to even get the swatch photos and my lips have been left feeling sore just so I could get enough colour out to show you what they look like on. I don't think they came out well at all but the colour for both of them was almost non-existent after about 5 mins of attempting to apply them so it's hardly surprising.
I'm obviously really disappointed with both of these products, but if you want to buy them, Rimmel lip tint for £5.99 and Revlon lip stain for £7.99.
If I were you though, I would save your money and buy a proper lipstick or a chubby stick dupe as they have less of a chance of drying out so fast.
