Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor, Swatches, Review and MAGIC

Hello everyone 🙂

 When Poornima sent me this lipstick, I was all over the place…jumping n everything because the colour was just so pretty!! When I tried it on, it made me look like I had smoked cigarettes since I was a baby! :O
The colour was so not what it appeared to be on the outside! I sighed and kept it on because I was only going out with my girlfriend for some icecream, my fiance didnt need to see me and wonder why I smoked after annoying him not to! 😉
I’m glad I did, because the staying power on this lipstick is phenomenal!! I was out for around 2hours, the major part of which, we spent eating, actually gorging over “Nutty Professor” from Baskin Robbins (yup, I see the nods and the smiles on your faces, its soo dee-lish right?!).The best part was that even when I came home my lips still looked the same and when I removed it using my cleansing milk after around 4hours, it came right off with no icky remnants of any sort and the quantity that came off was pretty much what I’d applied! So full marks on that front 🙂
I’m sure staying power is the biggest necessity for most of us so its great there!! The rest I’l bullet for you 🙂
  • Did not leave my lips dry after I applied the transparent gloss that comes with it.
  • I didn’t have to reapply AT ALL.
  • The doe-foot applicator makes applying this very convenient.
  • The transparent gloss is not sticky.

Now for the not so good,

  • The transparent gloss comes with a brush applicator which is a pet peeve for me, because the gloss gets all around my mouth when I’m in a hurry 😦
  • This particular shade “Faithful Fawn” is not what it appears from the outside.
So, as I badly wanted to utilize the awesome staying power on this baby, I experimented (which is what I do whenever I’m all studied out!) and I am proud to say, it was a success!! yayy!

Bright orangey coral(on me) Mango mania from Avon + unwearable smoking-since-centuries Faithful Fawn by Revlon
(on everyone) = a beautiful neutral colour, with just enough coral for me to happily carry it off 🙂 🙂 Ta Daa!
So, my rating for this line of lipsticks would be a 4/5. For this particular colour 2/5 (because it barely qualifies as a colour).
Hope you enjoyed reading this!
Lots of love, peace and happiness,
Keerthi

Maybelline,Colorbar,Revlon,NYX,Tips&Toes Updates,Launches-Bangalore

Here are some beauty updates from Maybelline, Revlon, RevAyur, Tips and Toes etc in Bangalore. These were spotted on my recent visits to Health n Glow and Empire Stores.

Maybelline Dream Glow Bronzer
A creamy and shimmery bronzer. This little tube stood on a shelf behind the billing counter. Spotted it as I was leaving the store. When asked, the SA told me that it was a new “Foundation” from Maybelline and how could I leave without swatching it?? And she was more than happy to help. She took a little from the tube and blended it on my hand..It was quite smooth and blended well and gave a very shimmery bronze effect.With a major shock, I realised that it was a bronzer and not a foundation.When I told her that, she agreed..LOL
There was only one shade available in the store and the staff were ignorant about any other shades or variations 😦
Price – Approximately INR 460
