Last Summer, Revlon launched their brand new liquid lipstick/gloss hybrids in the form of the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain. I was a fan as soon as I tried out Rio Rush, a bright candy pink colour that was worn all the time, for work and throughout those long Summer days and balmy evenings. A little trip to Target in Florida snared me a few more of the colours, and one that stood out to me the most was Cannes Crush.
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Cannes Crush is a coral that wears on the more pinkier side. It’s not as vibrant as Rio Rush but it certainly isn’t a muted coral. Can a coral be muted? I’m not sure on that one – the ones I wear most definitely aren’t! So, the formula of the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain is a balmy stain that applies like a gloss but holds like a lipstick with a gel finish. It really is a wonderful hybrid of all the good things about lip products. I find it to be slightly jelly like when applied, and I mentioned in my previous post on Rio Rush that it has a weird scent. The more I smell it, the more I’m reminded of something like spirit gum. Very strange, although it doesn’t bother me as the scent soon wears off.
The colour transfers onto my lips as a true reflection as to how the packaging shows. I do like the modern packaging of the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains as you can see the colours without having to open each tube when choosing a colour. I also really the doe foot applicator as it makes applying the Moisture Stain so easy, especially when shaping your Cupids Bow.
Wear time is average for the a product of this formula, and a solid 2.5 hours I think is reasonable. Although it is supposed to be a stain, I can’t see any coloration on my lips but this isn’t an issue. I love the colour, I love the feel of unusual consistency on my lips and I love the entire collection of colours. I want them all.
Luckily, they’re on 3 for 2 at Boots as I can’t wait until I go to Florida again. There are eight fab shades to choose from and I will try and swatch my other shades soon.
