I have used quite a few products from Revlon and I am happy with the brand. But here is one product which disappointed me. It is Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor. When I first looked at the product it looked very promising with lip color and gloss in a single tube. But after using, it turned out that it’s not. Please read on to know my experience with the product.

My experience with Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor:
The packaging is convenient for a lip stick and gloss product. The tubes at both the ends close at the centre with a single cap with two wands on both the sides. One is for lip color and other for gloss. The tubes are transparent so you will know how much product is left. The wands are convenient to take out enough products and to apply on lips. The lip color has very strange paint smell to it.
The color is very pretty cool toned berry pink. It looks very fresh on the face. The lip color gives absolute matte finish. But it feels very drying. The color sets on lips in no time. Once set it doesn’t budge or bleed at all. It stays put forever. Lip balm underneath is must. The gloss on top gives a finished look. The color suits all complexions. The texture is creamy but doesn’t spread easily. You need to make an effort to swipe color with wand for even application. The staying power is good. It stays on till you wipe it with a remover.
Now coming to the worst part, it makes my lips extremely dry and skin chaps off like hell. I have to literally rub my lips with makeup remover to get rid of the color. One should use this product only if they want to torture their delicate lips.
Pros of Revlon Overtime Lip color:
1. Very pretty color
2. Staying power is good
3. Gloss gives really nice finish
4. Does not transfer
5. You get two products in single tube
6. Gloss is thick and nice. Can be used on other colors as its transparent
7. Good packaging
Cons of Revlon Overtime lipcolor:
1. Makes my lips extremely dry.
2. Lip skin peels off.
3. Very difficult to remove.
4. Crazy expensive for a crappy product.
1/5 (Only for the color)
Even with all these pros it is not worth buying.
