Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains

Everyone seems to be talking about the Revlon Colorstay Moisture stains so naturally I was excited to finally get a chance to try them. Revlon is one of my favourite high-street makeup brands as they always manage to make products inspired by high end brands which are good but at a fraction of the price.  These are fairly similar to the high end YSL Glossy Stains and more affordable Maybeline Color Elixir.

There are 12 colours which are named and have been inspired by famous cities. For example I have La Exclusive, Barcelona Nights, Rio Rush and London Posh. They all apply as a gloss but fade to a stain which means they aren’t high maintenance.

I find these to be surprisingly comfortable on the lips even throughout the day. However they are a little hard to apply at first and come colours need particular perseverance as I feel the applicator and the thick texture means the colour doesn’t always apply evenly.

Out of the four colours I own I love Rio Rush and Barcelona nights although LA exclusive is also stunning. London Posh however isn’t really to my taste as it has a gold shimmer which I don’t find to be flattering at all. There are also a handful of other colours I have my eye on from the range although they only launch at the end of the month and will retail for £7.99. Really great for the summer and I can’t wait to wear them more!

    I am planning to get Barcelona Night but many reviews have said it has terrible staying power which made me hesitant to purchase. 🙁

    I love the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm stains so I'm curious as to whether or not I'd like these just as much. I'll definitely be picking one up to try, probably in Rio Rush because that looks fabulous! Thanks for the lovely post! xx

    Love, Ashley Christina

    Love the packaging! Revon have upped their game so much recently, I'm loving it.

    The formula sounds great, though it's a shame it's a faff to apply.

    These look stunning! And you're right, really similar to the YSL stains! Sound like they'd be gorgeous on, very tempted to pick these up when I see them on shelves!!

    I thought these looked like the glossy stains! I've tried the L'Oreal knockoff of the glossy stains and found it kinda hard to apply. It did look nice and last a while though! I can't tell which color is which, but I'm really liking that nude one towards the bottom! : )

    Revlon is one of my favourite "cheaper" brands as well. Their quality still looks and feels quite luxurious, and these are no exception. They look amazing and I love the bright colours!

    They have such pretty colours, I may have to pick one up as well to just try it out!
