Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain review

Today I want to talk about 2 products that just do not tickle my pickle. At all.   
  Let me introduce you to the Revlon Colorstay, Moisture Stain lipstains... Now I love the Colorstay range, the foundation for me is a big winner and I have also dabbled with the primer and a few other bits. I think lip stains are especially handy if you know you're going to be on the go with no time for a touch up. Benetint, by Benefit is my particular favourite and I hoped these would be s cheaper alternative! Colour and staying power wise; these are great and really are good for staining! But the appearance and formula do not float my boat.
I love the packaging of these, I like how it is a smart but cute looking cuboid with a polished black lid. I also liked how the colours looked on the bottom of each of them. However, when I took the wands out of the pots, it looked like the kind of wand I'd rubbed over my Barbies faces at the age of 5 to give them a makeover. It put me right off...

I assumed the colour would appear as it did on the packaging, LA Exclusive a nice subtle pink but not to bright. London Posh a nice nude shade that could be perfect for everyday wear. I was pleasantly... disappointed. The first time I put LA Exclusive on my lips, the formula was to sticky and had a few lumps in, I felt like I was trying to PVA glue my lips sealed. Ugh. When I first tried the London Posh, I just looked like I was unwell with very strangely orange lips. I can not pull off orange lips.
 *please excuse my hairy arm* - When swatching both shades the colours and formula look great, but once applied to my lips I just wanted to get them off, ASAP. I was so disappointed. In the run up to buying these I was so excited, I'd heard multiple people taking about how much they loved these as well as all the other different shades but when I first opened them, I felt embarrassed that I'd bought into such an ugly trend!  I think I'll just stick to using the Colorstay foundation and leave these lipstains in the past.
