I am a lip liner person…I have lots of lipliners and I love them. Lipliner is an ultimate product which not only protects your lipstick from bleeding and smudging but also gives your lips a well defined look and shape. Someday I use lipliners as stand-alone lip colors also as Iam a sucker of matte lip colors and also am a fan of the mind blowing staying power these products offer. I don’t know how many lip liners I have purchased till date, whenever I go to market for getting lipsticks I don’t know why I ended up getting two lip liners instead . I have referred Wise She while purchasing some of the lipliners, but there are some shades of lip liners which are not yet covered in our beloved blog-one such liner is Revlon Colortstay Lipliner in Chocolates about which I’ll write here today.
About Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Chocolates:
Revlon® ColorStay™ Lip liner provides longwearing definition, helps lip color last longer and prevents feathering and bleeding.
Perfect any lip look with Revlon® Colorstay™ Lipliner. Exclusive Colorstay technology with SoftFlex™ provides longwearing definition, helps lipcolor last longer and prevents feathering and bleeding
Tips and tricks: To create a polished lip look, define lips by applying ColorStay™ Lipliner to the natural line of your lips. To further increase the wear of your lipstick, fill in lips completely with ColorStay™ Lipliner and apply your favorite lip color.
Price and Quantity: 0.25 grams@ Rs.500/- (What’s with the pricing Revlon???)
Packaging: This liner comes in twist open and non-reversible packaging. Happy…no worries of sharpening?? But wait and be careful- once it comes out, it will not go back inside the case and believe me it is soft so if you apply even a bit of pressure to apply that excessive exposed tip you will lose certain amount of product from that tiny 0.25 grams. So I take out only a tiny tip out from the case (see in swatches) to avoid any tragedy with this liner. Packaging is sleek and simple, it comes in black plastic case with a black cap. There is a colored band at the lower side of the liner which depicts the color of the liner.
Colour and smell: Chocolate is slight mauve slight brown. More of brown with mauves undertones. It is fragrance free i.e.no weird smell.
Texture: Texture is smooth, liner glides easily on lips without pulling your lips.
Pigmentation: This liner scores full marks in pigmentation front. Just one swipe and it will impart beautiful shade of colour to your lips.
Staying power: Now this I the USP of the product..it stay put for 6-7 hours easily without any need for touch-ups.
My take on Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Chocolates:
Well, all the things I have described above- still to mention a point or two I’ll say that it is one of the best lipliner that I have tried till date. The texture is smooth- neither buttery soft nor hard just perfect as a lip liner. The thing that its tip may break is due to the reason that if you take out more than the required level of the liner and if we exert slight pressure to apply it than obviously due to these two factors, it will break. Use it as a stand-alone lip colour or as a liner to outline your favorite lippy- both ways it is a star performer.
I love the colour as it gives me a pulled together, sophisticated and neat look which is just so apt for my office. Even when I apply gloss on top of this liner staying power still shows a mark of 5-6 hours with light snacking in between. As a liner it not only prevents lippies from feathering but also enhances their staying power, if I use it as a base. It is my first lipliner from the Revlon Colorstay range and I am more than happy with it.
What I like about Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Chocolates:
- The shade- very pretty very subtle-perfect for my office makeup.
- Awesome staying power.
- Amazing product-both as a liner as well as a stand-alone lip color.
- Full marks in pigmentation front.
- No funny smell.
- Glides easily on lips- no tugging or pulling of the lips.
- I love matte texture.
What I don’t like about Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Chocolates:
- Price…Girls 0.25 grams for Rs.500/-???? & that too for a drugstore product-not at all justified.
- Packaging- why is this non-retractable??
- Pricing once again
Rating: 3.5/5. Iam deducting 1 marks for pricing and 0.5 marks for non user-friendly packaging.
Shall I repurchase it?
I am so much in love with this liner that despite my complaints regarding its cons I have purchased this liner in another shade a week back. Actually I visited Revlon counter to get Colorburst lippy in Rosy Nude but since it was out of stock I came back with a new lip liner. By now you all must be aware of my love affair with this makeup product called lipliner .
Shall I recommend it to you?
Price and packaging are the two biggest flaws with this otherwise perfect liner- so if it is ok with you, go get a one. I am sure you too will love it.
