The Lipstick I Regret Buying

Revlon Colorstay Soft & Smooth Lipcolor


Texture: Soft & Smooth, like the name. Long-wearing, doesn't dry out my lips.

Smell: YUCK! Really. Why, why would they make something you put on your lips smell like crushed bitter pills mixed with water?!! I think I could get high from this lipstick! And not the good kind of 'high'. I mean, I'd rather smell Vodka (which I don't even like drinking, by the way)
I hope it's not just mine that smells like that.

Price: Rs.600 (bye bye!)


Shade ~ #290 Heavenly Mauve
I didn't even want to swatch it! The shade is pretty though. Pinkish-mauve in daylight, but it looks kinda light peach in yellow light at night (?)
Look at that scrape on the side. It's that soft.


Anyone else has this lipstick? 
If you don't, I urge you not to buy it! Unless, of course, bitter pills are your thang =)

  4. That is a very convincing post :-) I never think of doing a smell test before buying a lipstick, but now I will be sure to do that first! The color is so pretty.

  16. Hi Cynthia,
    Just found your blog from Rati's blog. I'm glad to see so many Indian bloggers on the scene, its like one big happy party :)
    As for the lippie, this is slightly off topic but I have one really terrible smelling ointment (according to other user reviews, to me it smells sorta like roses)which is THE best lip balm ever... go figure :)

  21. Revlon has some of the nasties smelling lip products! I don't have this lipstick, but I bought two of their color-stay glosses, and OMG they smelled like vitamin C tablets mixed with water!

  22. Ewwww! This one speaks GROSS in my list now! I bought a Revlon one just a few weeks back and didn't like it either! I mean the colour was to my liking and all but it doesn't stay for long!I also had to say bye bye to my money. Well my favourite one is Maybelline, which I bought last year! Its got such a nice smell which makes me wanna eat it! The range is Moisture Extreme Lipolour.

    @Deepa n HD ~ Ya, money down the drain >.<

    @Rij~ Hi...I love the Moisture Extremes too :)

  27. I actually have this and the smell isn't bad at all,.... But mine doesn't resemble mauve even closely, like you said it's peachy. Wy name something mauve when it isn't mauve. Jeez. Money wasted. it's too light for me.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
