Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in LA Exclusive

Disclaimer: The product mentioned in this post is bought with my money. I am not affiliated with the company nor getting paid to advertise the product. This post is written with my honest opinion.

When I first saw the Moisture Stain from Revlon at my ULTA, I knew I had to grab one. From my experience, most stains tend to be darker than what is shown on the package. For that reason, I grabbed the lightest pink color.

Product Review: Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in #010 LA Exclusive (link from Walgreen's website)

Where to purchase: drugstore, mass merchandiser, ULTA, and online at
Price: $8.99 for 0.27 fl oz/ 8 mL

Description from the website: Drench lips in glossy, wet color & creamy moisture with vitamin E & aloe.

* Moisturizing Formula
Revlon ColorstayTM Moisture Stain uses a formula infused with vitamin E & aloe to moisturize without stickiness. Color glides on lips for a luxurious, weightless feel.

- 88% of women felt lips were instantly moisturized without stickiness.
Thoughts: When I first saw the display, I was drawn to the product. I think the packaging is adorable and I tend to enjoy lip stains. For that reason, I got one.
Here's a closer look at the applicator.
Here's a closer look at the lip product. It's a gorgeous lip pink when swatched.
Here's how the lip stain looks on me.
Here's an overall look on  me.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it smells like every other similar lip products. It has a cooling smell to it. Some people might not like it but I actually don't mind. Secondly when it comes to the packaging, I actually like it. It's unique and best of all, you can see the color on the outside. If you purchase more than one, you can distinguish the difference. I also like the applicator. You don't have to re-dip to get more product. It grabs enough the first time you take it out of the tube. Third, I think it's adorable that they name the lip products by city. Of course and it wasn't intentionally, but I got LA. Fourth, the consistency of the lip product is slightly thicker than medium consistency and it's very pale-medium pink in color. After couple of minutes, the product changes from pink to slightly purple which I found interesting and I actually like the color better. It also becomes glossier, smoother, and just more appealing to the eyes. The best part it's not sticky and it does leave a slight stain. Most of the stain is on the outline of my lips but it doesn't last long. In my opinion, the stain will not be noticeable on darker lip individuals. Since I have pale pink lip, it's noticeable. Lasting, the longevity is until you eat or drink.

* Revlon; a brand I love.
* Comes in a variety of colors.
* Named after cities.
* Sturdy packaging.
* Can distinguish the colors from the outside.
* Grabs a decent amount of product; don't need to re-dip.
* Slight cooling feel.
* Color changes from initial application.
* Shiny, wet look.
* Leaves a slight stain on the lips; mostly on the outline.
* Color lasts until you eat and drink.

* Don't know what color the product will change to.

Would repurchase: Yes.

Thanks for the review, Ahleessa, I appreciated it. A lot of glosses change color on my lips, even though they cost a lot...
Have a joyful weekend!
