Beauty Bite: Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Review

photo 2-53

 

Guys, I still wear lipgloss. I know there’s some kind of unwritten beauty rule that once a woman reaches “a certain age” she should toss the gloss and exclusively embrace lipstick, but on casual summer days, a little slick of gloss with a subtle shine just looks right. If it comes in a hybrid formula, I’m even more game, which is why I absolutely adore Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain.

Revlon’s newest lip lube is the perfect blend of gloss, liquid lipstick and lip stain, and it’s a pretty fab product overall.  Over the past few months I’ve tried out 3 of the new shades:

Miami Fever (orange-coral)

Barcelona Nights (cherry-pink)

India Intrigue (fuchsia)

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Miami Fever

Application: 2 or 3 coats are definitely required to achieve maximum colour for this product. If you have the patience for that, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful colour that lasts for a least 3-4 hours.

Hydration: A BIG plus for me-  this stain is super hydrating! A finishing coat of balm isn’t needed with this product. My lips are never dry after the colour wears off, and the shine lasts for a good 2 hours after application.

Texture: The texture of this stain is almost gelatinous, which I personally prefer over a liquid stain (no spillage).

Pigmentation: Bravo to Revlon for creating a hybrid gloss with long-lasting pigmentation! When the shine eventually wears away, you are left with a beautiful stain that lasts a solid 5 hours.

 

If you’re looking for a no-mess stain that won’t dry out your lips, try Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain. It retails for $12.

  2. I hadn’t that rule about lipgloss, the only one I heard was about wearing darker or red lipstick after “a certain age.” Or having long hair. I break most of those rules anyway. LOL. They look great!
