Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner Review
Guest Post by Ashwini (Medium Skin tone, Oily Skin)
An Easy transition from am to pm makeup is to add sparkly or shimmery eye/lip makeup. And since I love such products, my makeup for a night-out should have atleast one such thing. If not eye shadow, atleast a lip gloss (read bourjois 3d effect lipgloss with those mesmerizing sparkles). When there is no time to do eye makeup , sparkly eye liners are the perfect cheat way to add sparkle !Today I’m gonna review one such liner – the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blue Twinkle. Stay tuned for more!!!
Revlon Claims :
Elegant, sexy and sophisticated, Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner allows you to emphasize your eyes with precision.

Enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe.
‘Twinkle’ are the recent launches of the regular Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liners of which Black Beauty was a much raved product. I was on the lookout for a shimmery eyeliner in blue which would complement a dress i bought for a party and i zeroed in on this on. There were recently launched meatallic eyeliners in Colorbar too for Rs.350 and lakme fantasy shimmer ones for rs.275 but they didn’t have the particular colour I wanted – a vibrant turquoise, light blue… though they are pretty and cheaper than Revlon. This particular Colorstay Liquid liner blue twinkle is aptly named, its turquoise blue and it ‘twinkles’ , it has blue shimmers. The shimmers are subtle and give a nice shine but not like chunky glitters. The applicator is good one ,with a stiff brush and thus gives good control over lining. Since is the tip is not too sharp, it won’t be useful to draw a very fine line. Since its coloured I like to draw thick lines with it anyway
- Applicator is good, easy to use even for beginners.
- Colour is beautiful, unique one I must say.
- Good pigmentation.
- Dries quickly. Doesn’t smudge and stays put till removed . Great staying power and the colour intensity remains same throughout.
Pro’s of Revlon Colorstay Blue Twinkle Liquid Liner
- Rs.575 for 2.5ml is pricey.
- Not waterproof. I mean it won’t wash out with splashes but when I rubbed with water, it faded and left behind a blue stain which was quite a pain to remove as it was not going with my cleansing milk and then I had to rub in oil.
Rating : A-
Shades availaible: Regular : black beauty, Bingo blue, Baked bronze Twinkle (with shimmer):blue twinkle, Silver twinkle, Green twinkle, Black twinkle
Price : rs.575
Recommendation: I bought this solely because the colour was love-at-first-sight. . If you are someone looking for a super shiny coloured liner where the colour intensity won’t fade with time ,check the Revlon Colorstay Twinkle liner ranges at the counter. I love the ease of application , though i have to say drawing a thin line with this is difficult and the great staying power . I’m contemplating on buying the silver one in this, what’s your take? do you have suggestion for silver liquid liner which you have used?
