Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain,India Intrigue ~ review,swatch and picture

Hello girls...today I'm reviewing newly launch "Revlon color stay moisture stain" in shade 001 "India Intrigue". I wasn't planing to buy any of these moisture stain because one of my friend told me that these gloss are very thick and has weird smell but when I saw "India intrigue" I couldn't resist and bought this only because of its name "INDIA" intrigue. These moisture stains claim to give the shine of a gloss,moisture of a balm,longevity of a stain and pigmentation of lipstick.

Packaging...
It comes in a sleek black packaging with see through body and on top it has a screw type cap. Overall packaging is kind of appealing.

001 India Intrigue ($9.99 for 0.27 fl oz) ~ it is a deep magenta shade with a slight hint of purple.


Applicator...
I really like the brush shape,it is wide from back and pointed from front. It picks up the perfect amount of product and pointed tip helps fill in the lips without going out.


Texture and formula...
Texture of these moisture stain is very thick,it is more like a liquid lip balm kind of texture or you can say it is somewhere between liquid lipstick and lip stain balm. It has a hint of sheen finish but nothing terribly glossy finish(I hate too much of glossy or shiny finish). It feels quite thick on lips and a little weird smell like fevicol.

The formula is incredible pigmented like liquid lipsticks. It is not exactly a lightweight formula but it is not drying out my lips. It feels like a moisture balm to me. I found that the application is patchy,uneven and heavy.




Application tip...
You can't apply these moisture stain like a normal lip gloss or lip satin, to apply evenly you have to take time pushing and smoothing them over the lip until your body heat melt them into even opaque finish.

Pros...
  • available in 12 shades 
  • creamy texture
  • moisture rich formula
  • sturdy packaging
  • true to color
  • excellent pigmentation
  • seen finish
  • decent wear time
  • travel friendly

cons...
heavy texture
uneven application 
weird smell(but it's not very strong smell)
huge list of ingredients 
doesn't leave any stain
