Today i am reviewing Revlon's latest new lip offering to the market, the Colorstay Moisture Lip Stains described as giving "Hours of moisturizing colour and glass-like shine that glides on with cushiony comfort for a look that is perfectly pulled together" being a massive lip product fan i was eager to try these incredibly sleek looking new stains that really just stand out in the beauty isle with their massive selection of gorgeous shades. Way before these had been released in the UK i heard Fluer De Force rave about one she had picked up in the US, she wore it in a few of her videos and i was instantly enticed by the brilliant high shine and luscious colour. As Boots were doing a 3for2 when i purchased them i obviously decided to pick three to try, which believe me with such a great colour selection took me a fair while. In the end i decided to go for Parisian Passion a vampy plum shade and the darkest in the range perfect for the Autumn/Winter season, New York Scene which is the darkest of red shades and also a great colour for this time of year and La Exclusive a cool toned baby pink shade which i thought looked pretty. 
The first thing that struck me abut the lipstains is the application, they are really not the quickest and easiest lip product to apply. I find to get a good even finish you need a few coats and you really have to work it into the lips to get an even coverage, also with the darker shades i find i have be careful the colour doesn't bleed out over your lip-line. Application aside once on the lips the Colorstay Moisture stains look amazing, they really are a stand out look for the lips. I was impressed with all the shades particularly Parisian Parisian which i think is my favorite, they are so glossy looking and the colours have great pigmentation. As to how they feel on the lips for such a high shine finish product they are not at all sticky, they feel light and very moisturizing i expect this is the result of the Vitamin E and Aloe that they contain. 
One thing that has disappointed me about them is the so called "stain" i don't really no why they are called this when they barely stain the lips at all particularly the lightest shade La Exclusive, once worn off the lips your just left with a sort of rim like some sort of dodgy lip-liner! They also don't last particularly long before their worn off either i would say about 2-hours (as-long as your not eating or drinking a lot) which i don't find very impressive, definitely not an last all day product. 
Despite the slightly difficult application and unimpressive lasting stain i do like the Revlon Colorstay lip stains they look so gorgeous on and as-long as you don't mind frequent re-application throughout the day it is a nice lip product that will definitely get you a few compliments! 

Have you tired the Revlon Colorstay Moisture lip Stains? What did you think?

  2. I love these, I think some are hit and miss depending on the colours. I know what you mean about having to work them a bit to apply but when it's done they look fab!
