Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

Barcelona Nights
Miami Fever
Oooooh... I like these!

I was browsing in Boots while waiting for a friend to have coffee and came across these. Now i'm a sucker for nice packaging and these just caught my eye because they looked really cool and stood out against your usual lipgloss packaging. They have a really lovely array of colours and I went for Barcelona Nights (a deep fuchsia type colour) and Miami Fever (like an orangey-coral)

Claim
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stain. Hours of moisturising colour and glass-like shine that glides on with cushiony comfort for a look that is perfectly pulled together.

Price
£7.99 (Revlon are currently doing 2 for £10 on all their products - hence the double purchase!)

Packaging
As I said, the packaging was what caught my eye. I loved the angular shape and thought it looked really slick, considering it was a high street product.

Application
This took me a couple of tries to get right as the consistency is a little gloopy and at first it seemed difficult to get an even finish. The trick is to not apply any kind of vaseline or lip balm first. *Whaaaat* I hear you cry, no vaseline?? Yes, no vaseline. These are so moisturising that it almost feels like you are putting water on your lips. With a balm underneath it just turns into a bit of a mess. Trust me.
Without the vaseline, it glides on really nicely and the doe-foot applicator is always a winner when it comes to lipgloss as it makes for a smooth application every time.

Finish
Beautiful. Really great coverage for a lipgloss (although this is a kind of lipstick/lipgloss hybrid) and a great shine which lasted a lot longer than I thought it would - about 3 or 4 hours. The actual colour itself lasts a lot longer than that and fades quite nicely, not leaving you with that bad lip liner look that some lip products tend to do. Will definitely be picking up a couple more shades.
