Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Rio Rush Review & Swatches

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying the sunny weather! I know everyone in the beauty world has seen or heard about the new Revlon Colorstay moisture stains. They are new and the shade collection is amazing. I was in CVS like two weeks ago, and I was not expecting for these to pop up this soon. So of course I had to pick a couple up and try them. 

  So first of all lets talk about what this moisture stain claims to be. It suppose to be a lipstick which is long wearing, also a moisturizing balm and a shiny gloss. So with that in mind lets talk about the packaging real quick. I think it is sort of bulky packaging, but it is different than anything I have seen before. The shade is the color of the tube but sometimes it is not the same. The applicator is doe-foot but it is pointy so you can really make a shape of your lips when you are applying this. 

Rio Rush is a bright pink shade that is perfect for summer. It is a cream finish with no shimmer but it is really shiny and glossy. I am not a fan of the formula on this one, it is really liquidy and is not consistent at all. It is also patchy, to get a really opaque application you have to apply it three or four times. At first it is very liquidy and then it does dry down. My lips are moisturized with this lip stain, and it does leave a color behind. The staying power is not that good. It stays on for a couple of hours like three, but then you see no color on your lips. 

I do like the formula once its dried, and it is not sticky at all, which I love. Over all I am impressed with this shade, but just not impressed with the price they are $9.99 at drugstores. I think that is a little too much for a drugstore lipstain. I have a total of eight shades, so more reviews will be coming soon. I hope you all enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments below if you have tried this line. What is your favorite shade?

  1. I picked this up in the shade Cannes and wasn't blown away enough by it to pick up any more. I agree with what you said about it.

  2. So happy I read your post..I wanted to try this for a while now, but donno. I mean, I have very chapped lips, so I am worried this will make them look worse.
