Review: Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain's in India Intrigue, Parisian Passion, LA Exclusive, Barcelona Nights, Cannes Crush & London Posh

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain uses a formula infused with Vitamin E & Aloe to moisturize without stickiness. Color glides on lips for a luxurious, weightless feel.

These moisture stains claim to give the shine of a gloss, moisture of a balm, longevity of a stain, and give the pigmentation of a lipstick. They are really claiming to be the all in one perfect lip product. I was instantly intrigued by these products and couldn't wait to try them out. Keep reading to see of they were a hit or miss for me.

First of all I adore the packaging. The sleek black packaging with see through body just look high end, and I love keeping them out on my vanity. I also really enjoy the brush shape. It picks up the perfect amount of product and the pointed tip helps fill in the lips without going out of the lines. The brush reminds me of the YSL Glossy Stains.

The colour of these stains are gorgeous, and all leave a light stain that lasts about 4 ish hours. The only colour I didn't love was London Posh because it is just a bit too neutral for my skin tone.

Now onto what I didn't like about these stains...the texture. These are marketed as a hybrid product and they have this weird hybrid consistency as well. They are thick, kind of mousse-y, kinda like a melted lip balm, etc. They are like no other product I've ever tried.

Upon first application I found that they apply patchy and uneven, and feel very heavy on the lips. Layering two or 3 coats does give an opaque application, but because of the thickness it is unbearable to wear. I also found that their weird texture caused them to ball up in the corners and middle of my lips, making me have to blot continuously.

Julie from Swatch & Review let me in on the secret of these moisture stains and I am so glad that she did. You can't apply them like a normal gloss. To apply properly you have to take time pushing and smoothing them over the lips until your body heat melts them into a smooth, opaque finish.

Since starting to apply them in this fashion I have nothing but love for these lippies. The gloss transforms into a beautiful stain that leaves my lips looking colourful all day.

  1. Thank god for reading your review or otherwise I might never have known this trick! I really don't like it when products don't come with instructions. Don't companies want to ensure that customers love their product and give it a fair shot?

  5. I'm undecided if I like these yet or not. I definitely don't like the wand, it's so big! But I'll try your application trick and see if I like it better overall.

  6. If I didn't have two drawers full of lippies I would run out and get the LA Exclusive right now! :)

  7. Suggestion: try really blending and pressing the product into the lips so you have nice thin layers. The product is super thick if you just let it sit on top of the lips :)
