Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well! It's FriYAY and for #blogmas day 12 I thought I would bring you some gorgeous new lip colours I was introduced to not so long ago. Lip products are just incredible - I just love how they can instantly change up a makeup look and also the way that you feel. Lipstick can solve pretty much anything haha. Audrey Hepburn herself quoted "I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick" - wise words Audrey haha! These moisture stains claim to give the shine of a gloss, moisture of a balm and longevity of a stain with the pigmentation of a lipstick. They are extremely creamy, non-sticky and combine Vitamin E and Aloe with lasting lightweight PureStainTM pigments.
So far I have only tried the above three shades from the Colourstay Moisture Stain collection and I cannot wait to try more. The colours themselves are absolutely gorgeous but they also have this super unique get texture, unlike any other lip products I have tried recently. The closest product I could think of to reflect the consistency are the YSL Glossy Stains or even the newer YSL Kiss & Blush and I think these could potentially be great dupes for them. I love hybrid products!
Firstly, I just need to take a moment to talk about the shade names. I love how the three that I picked out are named after three of my all time favourite cities; LA, Barcelona and London. I believe the entire range is names after a selection of beautiful cities and I think that is a fabulous feature to the products. The packaging is super sleek and feels quite substantial and luxurious considering they are a high street product. Whoop, go Revlon! They have a wide doe-foot applicator that comes to a precise point which makes application so much easier. The precise point comes in handy when trying to perfect that bold lip without making a mess or to save time if you are in a but of a rush. Like I mentioned earlier the formula is definitely gel like and on first application the colour pay off is quite sheer, however, after letting it dry and applying a second coat you are good to go. I would say the glossiness fades after a good few hours but then you are left with pertly stained lips that literally do not budge.
LA Exclusive is a soft baby pink shade that I absolutely love. If you have read my blog since the beginning then you would know how much I am quite partial to a baby pink lip combo. I must admit thought I am slowly but surely getting more adventurous when it comes to bold lips. I think this shade would look lovely paired with MAC's Creme Cup! Barcelona Nights is a more fuchsia pink shade that I think would be paired beautifully with MAC's Girl About Town. Another gorgeous pink shade to add to the collection - winning! Finally, London Posh is a shade I wouldn't typically go for as I am drawn more to pinky shades but I have to say I really like this one. This is a warm nude shade with the slightest hint of coral that doesn't wash out my complexion like some nudes tend to do.
Overall, I am really impressed with these Revlon Colourstay Moisture Stains and I am so looking forward to trying out the other shades in the line and adding them to my makeup collection. The quality is impeccable and the formula is true to it's word! For £7.99, with the potential to be on 3-for-2 at Boots I think these are totally worth the money - they are as good as everyone is raving about! Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day! See you all in #blogmas day 13 tomorrow!
Lots of Love
