Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains Review

The Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains have finally reached the UK and they are causing quite a stir amongst all of us beauty bloggers, and with good reason too! Despite the fact that these stains have only been on sale for a few weeks, they are already proving to be extremely popular. Over the weekend I picked up two shades from the collection and I am obsessed with them already, so I knew I had to a do a review on them pronto. Let's get started!

So far, there are 12 gorgeous shades in this ever-so-popular collection and each product name is a different city from around the world; London Posh, Milan Moment, LA Exclusive, Cannes Crush, Barcelona Nights, Rio Rush, Miami Fever, India Intrigue, Shanghai Sizzle, Stockholm Chic, New York Scene and Parisian Passion. The two shades that I opted for are LA Exclusive (a Barbie-like baby pink) and India Intrigue (a deep pink.)

As for the formula, I have heard that they have quite a similarity to the YSL Glossy Stains, although I have never personally tried them. When first applied to the lips, the gloss does feel quite thick but it actually feels buttery and not at all sticky. The pigmentation is also seriously amazing, as the colour instantly comes out very opaque. I love how wide the doe foot applicator is too, as it makes swiping on the gloss an absolute breeze! The applicator has a slight pointed tip as well, which is very handy for when you want to be more precise around your lip line. As the glossiness wears away over time, you are then left with a nice and even stain to your lips which is very long-lasting. 

Another great thing about the ColorStay Moisture Stains is the packaging. I love sleek design, as well as the fact that you can see the colour of the product clearly, instead of having to open it or look at the product name itself ti ensure you have the correct product. This packaging is simple yet effective and it looks great in my clear lipstick storage container on my shelf.

There are some great offers on this product at the moment. In Boots, you can pick up a Moisture Stain for £7.99 and get a second one for half price. Superdrug also have an amazing offer where you can buy the product for just £5.99, what a bargain! Although, I am not sure how long this offer is on for so best get in quick if you want to grab a couple of shades.

I hope you all enjoyed reading my overview of the ColorStay Moisture Stains. I am really loving the two colours that I have bought so far and no doubt, I will probably pick up a few more in the near future as the formulation and shade range is so on point! What do you think of this new range? Have you tried it yet? What is your favourite shade? Please let me know by leaving a comment below!
