Review: REVLON - Colorstay Moisture Stain lipsticks :)


Hello! Let's talk some liquid lipsticks shall we? :) I have bought these Colorstay Moisture Stain liquid lipsticks by Revlon a couple of months back and I must say I have really been liking them. From all the available shades in Slovenia (7 shades available at Click2chic store) I really liked three and so I treated myself with shades 005 Parisian Passion, 010 LA Exclusive, 055 Stockholm Chic.

Official Description

A new level of glossy wet color. Saturated lips with brilliant shine and vivid color. Available in 12 luscious shades.
• Drenches lips in glossy wet color

• Ultra-light creamy lipstain with Vitamin E and Aloe
• 88% of women felt lips were instantly moisturized without stickiness


Packaging and price - These lipsticks come in a sleek and modern rectangular  black tubes. What makes them interesting is that side panels are transparent so you can see the exact shade. It has a doe foot applicator but it's a bit wider than usually, which reminds me a lot of L'Oreals lip glosses a couple of years back. The price at slovenian drugstores go from 10 to 12 euros, which is kind of the usual price for a Revlon lippie.

Formula, application - The formulation of these sort of liquid lipsticks is very different from anything I have tried so far. My first impression was that they are kind of gel-like. It's not quite like a gloss and it's not like a stain, it's not too creamy and not too liquidy. The formulation can be thick and gloopy and because of that needs more work to make it look evenly applied. Withe these you will need a mirror and a minute or two more than usual as you will need to work the texture and sort of massage it with the doe foot applicator onto the lips. Personally I prefer to apply it on bare lips in thin layers (it's important there's no lip balm kind of product under it as it will want to glide off or kind of crease). You need to really press the product into the lips and slowly go over your lips a couple of times to build up pigmentation and shine. It can be build up but it takes a bit more time than with a regular gloss/lipstick product. They also apply with a cooling sensation - not minty or tingly, just cool. 

The darker shades will leave your lips stained hours after the product wears off, so this is a big plus for me, especially with the shade Parisian passion, I really love the berry stain it leaves! Also once applied these feel really light on the lips, they are not sticky and personally I find them hydrating!

Shades:

Parisian passion - this one is actually my favourite from all the shades available in Slovenia. It's a non-shimmery burgundy shade, a bit more purplish, and looks very vampy. On me this colour applied quickly and evenly but it left a very lovely berry stain.

Stockholm chic - this one is very shimmery, and it's kind of reddish brown colour. I find it neutral enough and easy to pull off, but I find this shade might not be everyones cup of tea, as it'+s pretty specifirc and even more shiny and glossy looking because of the shimmery parts. It does leave a slight reddish stain, but it's more gentle than with Parisian passion.

LA Exclusive - this is a pale, icy Barbie pink. Honestly this one dissapointed me the most. I really love the shade but it's the worst when you want to apply it. It needs twice as much work than with the darker shades, also the formula seems a bit off.. maybe it's just my tube, but the rest are ok, but this one is more lumpy and clumpy and needs more work to really spread it out on your lips. Also doens't leave a stain like the darker shades. 

Scent - it's very subtle, once on the lips I don't sense it anymore, thou it's an unpleasant one, smells like paint. 

Lasting power - It's pretty good, as they are not really glosses or stains, on me I find that without eating or drinking they last for about 3 to 4 hours, but with eating/drinking they like to wear off very fast and you will need to reapply.

Overall  I am really loving these lipsticks, I only wish we had a better, bigger selection here. But well at least we got these. I really like the light glossy finish and also the stain they leave. They do need a bit more work to achieve an even application and look, but once applied they look very glamorous. The price is quite the usual for Revlon so I don't find these overpriced or anything, but it wouldn't hurt if they were cheaper. If you are not too keen on wearing gloss formulation than this might not be a good pick for you, as all in all this is still a glossy formulation. But more or less these are really simply "what you see is what you get" type of products and I really like that about them. 

Did you try any of these? Did you like them? Hope this review was helpful to you and thanks for reading!

  5. Na tebi vsi izgledajo tako čudovito! Jaz nisem preveč za te lip glosse. No vsaj za te žive odtenke. Mi je ljubše več definicije s šminko. Na tebi pa res izgledajo vsi fantastično :)
