Today, I will review the Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lip Color in Sheer Blossom. I got this as a gift from my aunt in Canada.
A long-lasting Revlon lip color and gloss which shine and shimmer your lips up to 16 hours. Revlon ColorStay Overtime Sheer Lipcolor Sheer Blossom 800 comes with an advanced ColorStay liquid formula which contains softflex to pamper lips. One end contains the lip color and the other end contains top coat with chamomile and soy extract to keep lips smooth and soft the whole day.
All of us look for lip colors that could last up to 6 hours if not the whole day. Well, this lip color definitely lasts up to 4 hours to 5 hours, but I had to battle with the product when the time came to remove because it didn’t budge! I had to actually use a makeup remover to get rid of it. To top it off, it felt like glue and my lips almost got stuck together!
It looks classy as it is a dual lip product. One end has the lip color which is a mild baby pink while the other end contains the gloss with mica that provides the glitter. I love how it looks like a connector. You can choose between the two or mix it up and use the colour as well as the gloss. The applicator stick on the color tube has the sponge while the applicator stick on the gloss tube has a smooth brush that glides well.
Got it as a gift but some sources say it retails for $7.99 or $9.99 (approximately Rs. 599 to Rs. 625) for 2.04 ml.
My Experience with Revlon Colorstay Overtime Sheer Lip Color – Sheer Blossom:
First, I would like to say that since I did not choose this color, I made my peace with it. Turns out, I did like the light colour. At first, I felt it was under pigmented but once I paired it with a neutral look and some regular mascara, it did look nice. I never went with just the colour. I always wore it with the gloss. I have always had a liking for gloss, I am not a fan of lip stains. Some makeup products smell funny, but this lip color was tolerable. It did hydrate the lips but up to the point where I felt my lips were sticking together.
The color does get into the creases of the lips and looks rather ugly. Coming to the part where I experienced hell, I always remove my lipstick before I eat and re-apply post lunch. I know, it’s weird but I am health conscious and ladies let me tell you, lipsticks or any lip product contains diatoms or animal-based ingredients and chemicals.
I do not like to ingest these, so I remove my lip products and then proceed to eat. It’s always been my habit. Let me tell you, I went through 3 tissues, tissue residue, washing with soap and hand wash and finally make up remover to get all of the product out in the end. It was a nightmare. So rest assured, this product would last 6 hours or more. Then, I pursed my lips and I felt it was very sticky. Color wise, its a good buy but for the rest, I would give it negative points.
Pros of Revlon Colorstay Overtime Sheer Lip Color – Sheer Blossom:
- Lasts long on the lips.
- Light color that would suit fair skin tones.
- Hydrates the lips.
- Dual purpose – you can go with just the color or gloss or maybe both.
- Convenient size and shape, so it is easy to carry in a purse or even the wallet.
Cons of Revlon Colorstay Overtime Sheer Lip Color – Sheer Blossom:
- Very sticky.
- Difficult to take off and requires a lot of attention.
- Not so good fragrance.
- Quantity in each tube is rather less, but overall amounts to 2.04 ml of product.
Would I Repurchase Revlon Colorstay Overtime Sheer Lip Color – Sheer Blossom?
If given a chance to buy this, NEVER. I have had better lipsticks and glosses by Revlon, but this by far is their worst product ever. Their color palette is pretty decent but my experience was horrid.
