That’s right everybody, there’s yet another ace drugstore lip product on the block; our favourite budget-friendly brands just seem to be bringing it recently in the lip department and this latest release is no exception.
Say hello to the Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains, a unique liquid lipstick meets gloss meets lip stain which leaves your lips with a hydrating dose of colour and shine without a single trace of stickiness. Sounds too good to be true huh? Well in this case, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Having put each of these colours to the test over a day’s worth of wear, I have yet to find a flaw in the formula – or the application.
Packaging-wise, they look pretty sleek, particularly for a drugstore product, and I love the way that the cuboid shapes line up oh-so-neatly (sad but true!). The uber wide doe-foot applicator fits really well on the lips and makes it easy to apply a good amount of product without ending up with an unpleasant amount of excess that you feel you have to blot off which I find happens a fair amount with other glossy lip products – just me?! I personally find that two thin layers of the lip stain works best for me in terms of building up the amount of colour and shine that I like but that’s really all down to personal preference. The colours are easy to build and the light formula layers really well.
All in all, I have to say I’m sold on these bad boys – hook, line and sinker – from the jetset names to the 12-strong colour range. These bad boys are currently due to hit stores in August and I’ve already got my eye on a few more shades to add to my collection. Barcelona Nights I’m comin’ for ya…
