A Hated Product?♥

Being a beauty blogger means I have a fairly good knowledge of new makeup releases due to reading blog posts about new products. If a new release has a high number of reviews raving about it, I know it must be good and will probably buy it, in which I will most likely review it myself. Rewinding back to Summer of 2014, Revlon's lip products were my weakness, and it was no surprise that I bought the Colorstay Moisture Lip Stain. Picking the colour was the hardest part; in the end, I chose Barcelona Nights.

In my opinion, I find the packaging to be quirky. It looks as though the product is quite pricey and almost professional. The pink is handy as it's basically the colour of the product itself. I like the block pink as I adore pink but I feel it adds a little personality to the packaging. With the pink being so bright, it's easy to catch whilst looking through your makeup bag.


But why a hated product? I certainly wouldn't say I hate it, however, it has received some hate in the blogging world. The consistency of it isn't like an ordinary lip stain, it's slightly watery. In saying this, application can look a patchy in some areas and uneven.


However, I managed to solve this, call me a genius. So, Jasmine, do inform me? My solution, simple; a lip liner. If applying a lip liner, it's laying down a base for the product, meaning, even application! Normally, I line my lips and fill them in afterwards. The lip liner also increases the length of time the stain lasts on your lips. I find that the stain seems to, essentially, stain my lips for even longer. The length of time that it lasts varies, but even after eating, it was still in tact, almost perfect.

I find this has solved my problem, meaning it went from "meh" right up to "ooh" within no time.

Have you tried the moisture stain? If so, did you love or hate it?

  2. I have this product in the shade '005 Parisian Passion' and I have the exact same views! With a lip liner, perfect, as it does have a long staying power but on their own quite hard to apply and patchy. Great post! 😀

  3. I totally agree with you its all about how you apply products half the time the products are amazing and people blame the products but its actually their lack of skill half the time

  15. The color looks so pretty! Now that you told us the key to using it, I may give it a try. Although I'm quite demanding when it comes to lip products. Is it really moisturising?

    1. I suggest you do! Well because it's glossy, it isn't drying so I guess you could say it's moisturising in a way! Aw haah, I love this template, it's so pretty! x

  16. I have a few of these and I love the colors/how they look when I wear them, but there's something about the formula that I don't like. I don't know what it is, but when I think about wearing these I often pass over them for something else.

  22. I've tried this too and being such an impatient person I couldn't handle how long it took to dry down so at the end I was super frustrated with it and convinced I had done something wrong! I haven't tried it since tbh!

  32. The colour looks great! I've never tried Revlon products before at all. My weird problem with drug store lip products is that they often have a weird smell, it's sickly sweet lol. Just me?
    I might just give this a go though, as I'm OBSESSED with liquid lipsticks xx

  33. I've heard a lot of amazing things about that product, especially that color, so I was surprised to hear it got its fair share of hate! I'm glad you got it to work for you. I often slack off in the lip liner department, so maybe that's something I should try next time a product isn't working for me.
