Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stay in "Miami Fever", "New York Scene" & "Parisian Passion": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Happy Tuesday everybody, hope your week is going well! Today I wanted to share with y'all a few more shades of the new Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains. Ever since I got to try the shade "Barcelona Nights" (reviewed here), I've been totally obsessed with this new line because not only do the stains make the lips bright and glossy, they also feel so comfortable and moisturizing!

Packaging:
The Moisture Stains come in very sleek and modern rectangular cases with transparent panels on the sides that allow the gloss color to peek through. The doe-foot applicators have a wider, paddle shape that makes it easier to apply and blend out the product.

Formulation:
These stain glosses have a very thick, almost gloopy texture upon application. However, after it's blended out completely, it gives an incredible non-sticky, lightweight shine to the lips. The colors are very pigmented and they are also buildable so you can adjust the intensity. The shine stays around for about three hours but the stains will remain for hours, even through eating and drinking. I love the fact that the formulation keeps the lips so soft and hydrated as well!

Colors & Pigmentation:
Miami Fever: This one looks quite neon and orange in the tube but once on the lips it becomes a nice and wearable coral, perfect for summer! The pigmentation is incredible and it leaves behind a beautiful pinkish coral stain.

New York Scene: This one is a very classy and vintage-y deep brick red (definitely my favorite of the three). The color is surprisingly easy to pull off and I think it's a great alternative to the classic true red.

Parisian Passion: This one is a deep burgundy, very, very vampy. I had a bit of issue evening out the color because it settled into the lines of the lips (see swatch below). It's not as noticeable in person but I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to lip colors so I had to spend a lot of time fixing the color. Also I personally found the color a bit too purple to pull off. But if you love vampy lip colors then you will for sure love this one!

Overall:
What can I say? I love these! I've never been a fan of lip glosses not because I don't like the shine but because I don't like the heavy sticky feeling. With these though, I get color, hydration, and shine! I do want to note that these stains are not something you can just whip out during the day and apply without a mirror. With the way the product is formulated, you really do need to take a good minute to spread and smooth out the color.
