Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Review & Swatches

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain promise the shine of a gloss, moisture of a balm, long wear of a stain, and the opaque coverage of a lipstick.

Available in 12 shades the new Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain formula is a nod to recently recent releases like Maybelline Color Elixir and L’Oreal Extraordinaire as well as Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains

These are a thicker product that do veer off into the realms of hybrid because they aren’t quite a gloss nor are they are a lipstick but more like a liquid like balm of sorts. They most remind me of Almay’s Liquid Lip Balm but not textured as similarly as Color Elixir or Extraordinaire both of which I find much lighter and less pigmented.

Jergens BB Body & Urban Decay BB Body Comparisons

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream

I imagine you’re thinking that the newly launched Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm is a dupe for Jergens BB Body Perfect Skin Cream which is why I decided to do comparisons of the two. I think it’s the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that Urban Decay had launched a “Body BB Cream”. Strangely enough it was the budget brand that started the trend with the higher end following behind on it. Typically we see a big trend pop up for a product and a month to several months later you’ll start seeing similiar style products at the drugstore.

Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm

Not the case here.

Jergens was the first company to market a BB Cream for your body and Urban Decay followed close behind. I imagine as we head into Summer we are going to see MORE and more and more brands embracing this trend.

So here’s a comparison of Jergen’s version and Urban Decay’s.
