Why I feel the need to rant? Leme tell ya..
Some time back back, my dearest husband had one of those sudden spurts of affection [possibly due to the fish curry I made that he loved] and he asked me what I wanted him to get me from the drugstore.
And my answer was of course - lippies...
Since I was just climbing aboard the Lip Crayon craze then, I asked him to get me the popular Revlon Just Bitten [bitter laugh] lip stains. You can guess the rest- The poor honey brought home 4 shades from this range and since he promptly lost the bill, I couldn't return them..
Hoping against hope, I tried them, only to feel bitter about Revlon's naming trick- very very mean of you Revlon to name this product such that poor husbands get mixed up when they buy!
What this muck is- a sketch pen that Revlon decided to pretty up with a Lip balm stuck at one end.
The lip balm is okay... but why would anyone pay so much for an average lip balm and sketch pen that doesnt work?
|Look at that tip! I feel like singing Baa Baa Black Sheep....|
|Imagine a Revlon product giving such a patchy swatch as this!|
Overall: I am surprised to see that these are still stocked in Revlon counters. Why Revlon, why? Is it pride? Is it your inability to accept you came out with a dud product? Come on, everyone make mistakes- the trick is to accept gracefully & burn these stuff to prevent poor unwitting customers from buying it!
