Hello you beautiful people!
How are you guys?
First Le me wish you all a very, very happy new year ! I really hope this New Year turns out to be a good one for everyone! Here in Mumbai, this is the best time of the year; the weather is not so humid ;), you can feel the cool breeze and the festive mood is in full swing!
After Diwali and new year parties, everyone is pretty re energized to follow their new resolutions and I know for many of us, one resolution is not to buy makeup stuff we don’t need! But come to think of it, what qualifies as “makeup we don’t need??” ;)
Having good makeup is like having shoes, one can never have too much! :D And, After all with the wedding season around we anyways don’t need a special reason to buy makeup! : P Today, I am back with lip gloss review and this product is definitely a must try for everyone. To begin with, its coral!!! (Yippie!!!!) And so it is perfect for day wear and perking up your complexion! Okay now, without wasting any of your time further, Let me introduce you to fantastic lip gloss from Revlon.. Revlon color stay mineral lip glaze in continuous coral.
Revlon’s first longwearing lip gloss with a unique mineral complex that provides a glossy seal of conditioning color. Just one application of this cushiony formula keeps lips coated with comfortable color for up to 8 hours, with no need for touch-ups. Available in 12 gorgeous, glossy shades.
It comes in a very unique, sturdy packaging. It is very similar to L’Oreal glam shine lip gloss but a little curvier ;) Being spill proof, It is quite easy to carry around in a purse or a clutch though it’s a little heavy. However, lip glosses are usually this big, so I don’t mind it being a little heavy. Also, the bottle is transparent, so you can easily see how much of the product is left.
My experience with Revlon color stay Mineral glaze:
To begin with, I must start with why I picked it up. I bought it for its beautiful color. I was looking for an orange coral shade and it fits my bill perfectly. As you can see in the picture, one swipe gives opaque pigmentation and there is hardly a need to build up the color. It has immensely fine shimmer which is hardly noticeable once put on lips.
As for the staying power, I wore it to a friend’s wedding and it stayed on my lips for almost 5 hours without a touchup and with light meals, and even after that it left a beautiful stain which was quite rich considering it was a stain: D
Although it is a lip gloss, I feel that it is more of crossover of lipstick and a gloss. The reason being its rich color and when applied it feels a little heavy. Another thing, it has a weird smell! I mean something like fresh plastic or new electric fittings. Now, I know this sounds little disheartening considering it’s a fabulous product overall, but it’s a very faint smell which disappears within 5 seconds of application.
I don’t think it can stay on lips for straight 8 hours, not with meals at least… Without meals and in an indoor setting, may be. It is not sticky, and is transferrable as well. It won’t vanish completely after a light meal, but you might need a touch up for a perfect finish.
Why I like Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze – Continuous Coral
• It is amazingly beautiful shade… Totally in love with it!
• It has excellent staying power (with light meals).
• Wide range of shades to pick from.
• Nice packaging
• Extremely pigmented.
• It does not dry lips.
Why I don’t like Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze – Continuous Coral
• It’s not available in India.
• It’s a little heavy on lips.
• It smells weird.
• Cannot club it with any other lipstick or lip stain.
4.0 /5 (-.5 due to non availability in India and .5 for being heavy on the lips)
It’s a great product for lip gloss fanatics as it has great pigmentation, and stays on the lips for decent time. Personally, I loved it as even with minimal eye makeup, it brightens up the face. However, if you are more of a sheer lip gloss person, don’t go for it, as it is a little heavy on lips and insanely pigmented.
Will I Repurchase Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze – Continuous Coral product?
Maybe not! Only, because I would like to try out other shades from this range.
But for the price, it is really a steal! Also, it is one of the lighter shades from the same range and other shades are more of night shades. If you don’t like to wear a lip gloss which is heavy on lips and non translucent, this is not the product for you!
That is all about this lip gloss!!
See you all soon! Take care and stay beautiful!
