Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Rio Rush, Barcelona Nights & LA Exclusive

Revlon is launching their new ColorStay Moisture Stain line this month, and I have three shades to share with you: Rio Rush, Barcelona Nights & LA Exclusive* ($12.95 CAD/8.mL). There are a total of twelve shades in this new formula, and the names are inspired by various cities around world. The formula is a hybrid gloss, stain, and balm - sounds pretty amazing, right?!

Revlon's ColorStay Moisture Stains come in simple rectangular packaging with black lids and see through tubes. I really like this packaging, it looks very high-end in my opinion! The applicator is a slanted doe foot, extremely similar to the applicators on YSL's Glossy Stains. There is a very slight plasticy scent to these glosses, but I can't smell it once they're on my lips. The formula of Revlon's ColorStay Moisture Stains is fairly thick and creamy, and the opacity is really great. Initially this formula looks very glossy on my lips, but after about 3 hours the gloss fades, but the stain remains. The stain isn't incredibly strong, it just lightly stains my lips. I think that this formula is comfortable to wear, but it is a little bit sticky.

Rio Rush is a beautiful bright pink with blue undertones. This shade had great opacity - one swipe for full colour!

LA Exclusive is a girly baby pink. This was the sheerest shade of the three that I tried, but two coats gives a pretty opaque colour. I love light pinks like this one!

Barcelona Nights is a reddish pink with a pigmented formula. I found that it was best to use a lip brush with this colour since it was a bit darker.

I'm really enjoying Revlon's new ColorStay Moisture Stain formula! Everything from the packaging to the opacity is great, and I definitely think that they're worth checking out. I'm wanting to try out a few more shades from this range as they're so lovely. I love hybrid lip formula of gloss, balm, and stain all in one. For a drugstore formula, I think that Revlon did really great! Are these as great as the YSL Glossy Stains? I think that YSL's formula is a bit creamier and less sticky, but Revlon's price point is so much better. Are you excited about Revlon's new ColorStay Moisture Stains?

    1. Thanks Jasmine! I find the YSL formula a bit more comfortable to wear and less sticky, but the difference isn't that big!

  12. I played around with these on the weekend and your swatches look so much better than mine. The conssitency of my tubes is very chunky and i have a hard time getting an opaque filled in lip.
