Hey all beauty geeks!!! I am going to review Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black today. I am sure lot of us started our makeup journey with a plain kajal pencil. And as we know, first love is always special. So, it will not be rare to find makeup junkies hoarding kajal and eyeliner pencils in their makeup stash. I am a proud collector of eyeliner pencils. So much that you will find some 3-4 pencils of the same shade. I keep my eyeliners shade wise to remind me time and again to use them and not buy more. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black is one such black eyeliner that I love using on and off.

My take on Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black:
Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner comes in various shades, ranging from regular black, brown to colorful shades. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black is an intense black shade that is perfect for lining the eyes and even smoking out a bit. Though the liner is pigmented, the shade is a muted black and not a vibrant black. The eyeliner is waterproof and is best for outdoor days. I usually wear it when I am out in the sun or its raining. This is not my evening black, though.
Texture: Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black has a very different texture. It is smooth but not very creamy. But as the same time, it does not drag on the eyelids. I would rather say it has a bit dry texture. Because of this the liner sets very fast, so you need to blend it quickly. Once it is set, it does not budge at all. It does not fade or crease either.
Pigmentation: Intense pigmentation. Though it is not the blackest black, still it is very close to that.
Staying Power: Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black is a superstar when comes to staying power. Stays on my oily lids for an entire day.
Packaging: The eyeliner is packaged like a twist-up pencil, which is great as no wastage due to sharpening.
What I like about Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black:
- Matte black shade.
- Amazing pigmentation.
- Smooth texture.
- Goes on very evenly.
- Sets like a stone.
- Very long lasting.
- Does not irritate eyes.
- Easily removable by a makeup remover or cleansing oil.
- Twist-up packaging.
What I do not like about Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black:
- Not creamy.
- People who prefer rich black may not like as it is a muted black.
- The packaging is not very sturdy as mine has already cracked.
- Limited availability.
Final Impression: If you are looking for a black eyeliner that stays put all day and in any weather, grab this eyeliner. The shade might not be a very vibrant black, but it is perfect for daily wear. I really like this eyeliner and use it when I need a muted black liner for an entire day. However, I do not wear it with my evening looks. Definitely Recommended!!!
