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!
