I’ve been missing in action for a while now. But I’m back for good. Today, I’m reviewing the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in New York Scene. I have always liked Revlon products and when this product was released in India, I was obviously super thrilled. Did it live up to my expectations? Let’s find out.
-Drenches lips in glossy wet color
– Ultra-light creamy lipstain with Vitamin E and Aloe
– 88% of women felt lips were instantly moisturized without stickiness
The packaging: The lipstain comes in a rectangular box-like tube with the standard screw-top cover. The applicator is flat, almost heart shaped and is probably the best feature of the product if you ask me.
The Product : The color is a beautiful deep red. The gloss is pigmented and almost feels like a gel on the lips. It’s not really as wet as a gloss and not as dry as a lipstick. My lips do feel moisturized when I have this on so Revlon’s claim No. 3 is spot on. Now for the not so great part – the gloss applies patchy and you can tell from the pictures that the application is uneven. Believe me, I tried to work with this over and over again but just could not make it work. It applies opaque, however, because of the patchy appearance, you feel the need to go back in the tube for more and reapply until you are satisfied with the appearance.
Texture & Formula : I have a problem with the texture of the gloss. I really can’t compare it to anything. Its not sticky but it is. Its not watery but it is. Tacky is the word I was looking for. As far as the stain claim goes, it does stain the lips pretty well, probably because this is one of the dark shades. I can’t say about the lighter shades in the range. The gloss stays on for 2-3 hours tops and never dries down completely. If you drink water or have a meal, it will disappear (its a gloss after all) and you will need to reapply.
Nailed it or failed it?
I’m on the fence about this product. Although the shade looks great on me, there’s something missing in the product.
