It's lippie review time again and today it's a duo review of 2 Revlon lippies- I should call them lip stains though.
The first is the Revlon ColourStay Moisture Stain (015) - Barcelona Nights. I saw it at a Boots Store months ago and what made me buy it was when I saw the lip colour on a picture of the beautiful Olivia Wilde. I didn't even think twice- I just popped one in my shopping basket.

The second lippie for review is the Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter (090) - Sweet Tart. This one was bought because I thought I needed a light pink lip stick for an everyday make up look.
Packaging and effects: Barcelona Nights comes with a doe foot applicator while Sweet Tart comes as a simple tube lip stick. Barcelona Nights does has that glossy and wet feel when applied but like most lip stains, I find that I prefer the look when I have moisturized my lip with balm before application.
Sweet Tart has a light glossy feel to it.

Durability and Colour Pay off: Well Barcelona Nights is just OK- I like how it can be lightly applied or thickly applied. However I think it might be wise to layer two or three coats while waiting for the previous coat to dry before applying a new coat. Just slathering the thing on the lips might make the lippie look gooey.
Sweet Tart really disappointed me though. Fine, my natural lip colour is dark and all, but still! It does nothing for me. I had to line my lips with liner very well before I could get this lip colour to show. I guess one has to have very pink lips to rock it.

The other day I asked Mr. Man what he thought my favourite shade of lipstick was and he confidently said "red". Lol. I mean I will always love the classic red (I just ordered a Ruby Woo- huh what have you been waiting for! you might ask), but I definitely have a soft spot for pink lippies. I even read somewhere that it makes people look younger.
Barcelona Nights: 3/5
Sweet Tart: 1/5
What's your fave shade of lipstick? Red, wine, pink, plum, orange or nude?
