My Thoughts on Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain – India Intrigue:


I am a big fan of the packaging, it looks elegant and sleek. The applicator is also amazing, just the right heart+rectangular shape, perfectly hugs the contour of the lips.

India Intrigue is a nice purple pink colour. It has fine shimmers unlike the shade Barcelona Nights.  I have major issues with the colour completely changing from a cute purple-pink to a dark purple after 10 minutes of application. Please do let me know if it happens with you if you own this shade?!

Texture and Finish:

It’s watery yet creamy in texture, glides on smoothly without streaking, but it will turn patchy if you layer it. But it is quite opaque, so I doubt there is a need to layer it. Gives a nice glossy finish.

Highly pigmented for a stain gloss. You can wear it lightly by dabbing it on, that will reduce the intensity of the stain gloss.

Staying Power:

It stayed on me for 3 hours+, then the gloss wore off, but stain stays on for about 2 hours.

The thing I don’t like about India Intrigue is that the colour changes on me. Please check the swatches to see the drastic colour change and please let me know if the same thing happens to any of you.

Pros of Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain – India Intrigue:

    1. Hahaha. Quite intriguing indeed.I still don’t understand why it changes color. Maybe I have a defective piece 🙁

  1. yes the color actually looks a bit darker after applictions.. but you are on the way to make me a big fan of these.. 🙂 🙂

  2. Well reviewed!! Very weird that the color changes do much post application.. I like both the shades though.. n it looks so good on you! Lovely lotds!

    1. Thank you so much. Its actually not bad. But I don’t know why I’m not confident in wearing dark colors 🙁 always been a bright lippy girl! 😀 😛

  3. such a lovely shade but yes chameleon like properties are never welcome in lip shades. One of the biggest reasons why I didn’t like L’Oreal Caresse Shine so much! Lovely lip swatches btw

    1. True! Even some shades in loreal carasse shine changes color on me. Wish it was true to its color 🙁 have you used the Revlon moisture stains yet? Please let me know if the same happens with you as well 🙂

  4. I think both look nice on you. 🙂 Actually if you have pigmented lips then colour does change a little bit after settling down. All my lipstick changes colour whether it be MAC or YSL. They all turn into slightly darker shade than what it was at first. Lol now I am bit worried whether it should happen or not. I am going to google about it.

    1. Oops I was on my mobile then and just saw that even on hand swatch colour have been changed. That’s so weird. I have never seen anything like that before.

  5. Really?? Even the lipsticks change color on you? That’s something new!! On me only lipstains change color. They change color cause of the pH balance? I’m really not sure! Even I’ll google about it.
