Ever since I saw a sneak peek of the Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain earlier this year, I have been longing to give it a try. Formulated with vitamin E and aloe, the Moisture Stains provide lips with a beautiful wash of color with a glossy, wet finish. To see my swatches of the shade "Barcelona Nights", click.......
Recently I noticed that more and more brands are ditching the traditional thin doe-foot applicators and opting for a wider, more paddle-like doe-foot. This design allows for easier blending and better coverage. I use the underside of this applicator to hug my lips and spread the color out evenly and smoothly.

Barcelona Nights is a beautiful bright pink. The formulation of the Moisture Stains reminds me a lot of the YSL Glossy Stains. When you first apply the product, the color comes out quite thick but after taking a few seconds to evenly spread it out on the lips, I was left with a beautiful wash of color. The finish isn't like your traditional gloss; it is shiny but not at all sticky or gloopy. The product feels incredibly comfortable and moisturizing on the lips and after the shine wears off I was left with a subtle pink stain.
I absolutely love this, I think the Moisture Stains will soon be the new Lip Butters; in other words, I think these will be flying off the shelf! If you love glossy lips but can't stand the texture of lip glosses, then you will love the Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains! There is a total of 12 shades so you will for sure find one, or two, or six, that you will love!
The new ColorStay Moisture Stains are available Canada-wide starting May & June 2014.
