I have found some great beauty products at Big Lots. Recently I purchased the Revlon ColorStay Soft & Smooth Lipcolor in 350 Smooth Nude. At $2, I figured it wouldn't hurt to add another nude lipstick to my collection. As it turns out, I should have passed and saved the $2.
I was originally interested in this lipstick because it comes in a tube that is very similar to the Revlon PhotoReady concealer. The concealer is smooth and creamy, so I figured the lipstick would be the same.
For some reason, I feel like it is too smooth, so it doesn't apply the color evenly. If I put a lip balm on first, it is even more difficult to apply the color evenly. It's almost like it doesn't "stick" to your lips over the gloss.
I can layer other lipsticks on it, but who wants to take the time to layer when you have a color that looks great by itself.
Bottom line: My biggest problem with this lipstick is the color. I LOVE the vanilla scent, and it is quite moisturizing for a lipstick. These lipsticks have been discontinued, but if you find them at Big Lots, I say pass. You can find much better products, newer products from Revlon, so save yourself the $2.
