Hello! So I've been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick for the longest time. I don't like to try lipstick testers on at a make-up counter (does anyone?) so I often end up picking a colour, only to get home and realise it gives me the dreaded 'death lips'. I was browsing around Superdrug the other day when I spotted the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains looking pretty in their own little stand. And on offer too - down to £5.99, why not?
It was the packaging that caught me at first. The clear casing giving a little colour preview reminds me of the YSL Glossy Stains, and I think this must be Revlon's own take on that product. I picked up 'London Posh' which is a lovely warm nude. As you can see in the pics, it's a really natural looking 'barely there' kind of colour, but I don't think I've found the perfect nude quite yet. I think it's ever so slightly too pale for my natural lip colour, but I suppose the colour will be better on me in a few months as I get paler and paler! Otherwise, it's probably quite a good all-round nude colour for a lot of people.
Colour aside, it's a lovely rich gloss-type formula that softens as it's applied. After a while, it gives a naturally moisturised stain on the lips - basically what it says on the tin. The colour lasts really well, and doesn't feel sticky whatsoever - bonus points for that! I'm going to continue my search for the perfect nude, but I'll definitely go back for more shades of the Colourstay Moisture Stain. At the moment, I've got my eye on Barcelona Nights and India Intrigue for my next purchase!
Have you tried any of these? What's your favourite nude?
