I thought this color had been discontinued after first finding it on clearance years ago. Was very happy to see it in their line again. This is such a perfect mix of red and orange without being too loud. I had to experiment with this at first and had all the problems others have expressed in past reviews. But once I applied a sheer coat on moisturized lips and let it dry for a minute I was overjoyed with the result. I then apply more sheer layers and build the color if i want intensity...though one sheer coat is so pretty and makes a great base for other lipsticks, too. This didn't budge all day, in fact, I had to use makeup remover to get it off. The color is absolute perfection with my NW 25 skin tone. It really brightens up my face without screaming Red! The hint of orange makes it warm and subtle. As I age I find that most reds just aren't wearable anymore but this one ties my whole makeup together when I want a classy, understated red lip. I don't use the gloss that comes with it and find it a little too runny for my taste. Instead, I use a clear lip balm. This looks great with a shimmer gloss over it, too!

I bought this thinking it would be the perfect lip colour for me, I like bold lips but have always had problems keeping the colour on, which is what drew me to buy Revlon Colorstay in the shade Constantly Coral.
It is a two step applicator, first you sweep on the color then you put a balm over it. I applied the colour part and thought it looked lovely, it was bright and vivid. However, shortly after I noticed the lip color was quite dry, I applied the balm part and it took some of the colour off, then it just sort of deteriorated off my lips in a relatively short space of time.
I think the balm was meant to soften the very dry lip colour but it didn't really work, it was just flaky and didn't stay at all. Since then I have gone back to Revlon Colourburst Lipstick, which I think is wonderful and would recommend to anyone, works especially well with Lipcote over the top.
Overall, not impressed with this product.

I was suprised by the poor reviews, as I absolutely love this product. I was disappointed when Almay discontinued their version of Colorstay, as it was a light consistency that didn't feel like paint on the lips and quickly searched for an alternative. Revlon proved to be the answer.
'Constantly coral' is a soft, shimmery pinky-orange and depending on the effect I want, I apply one thin coat or several. It's definitely not a true orange, like Revlon's colourburst coral in the bullet tube. To avoid flaking, make sure your lips are moisturised well beforehand. I put on Carmex for a few minutes and then wipe it off. Also, wait a few minutes before applying the clear top coat.
I found this lasts the day for me (avoiding oily foods or dressing helps) and looks beautiful without the need for eye makeup to offset it.

In general I don't like this product type's feeling on my lips-- color on one end, gloss on the other. Latexy like no one's business as it wears off and in gross peeling chunks if you happen to eat a salad with oil and vinegar-- any oils destroy this lipstick's application. It's not easy to retouch this lipstick up once you've put it on. It's not meant to be retouched-- my mother only uses this brand of lipstick and it's because she refuses to have NO color on her lips and also refuses to reapply during the day. It accentuates every line and dryness if the topcoat isn't reapplied once in a while. To me, my lips feel like they're being suffocated by this filmy lipstick. yech. So you must want to know why I'm giving this product 4 lippies. This is the ONLY lip anything that has passed the waterpipe (the tube shaped ones you smoke tobacco out) of test. A session with the waterpipe messes up my lipstuff every time, smudging and wiping it off. To those familiar with waterpipes, you know exactly what I mean. Well, I put this lipstick on, had a session, and it was still on. Not a smudge in sight. The topcoat stayed on pretty decently too. Impressed. If there's ever an occasion (maybe graduation or something) where I want my lip color on all day without worrying about smudges, I'll go to this. The color range is good too, so there's something out there for everyone.

I wanted a lip colour that would stay...and tried the Maybelline's Superstay first...and it cracked and dried up my lips! I couldn't believe it! I ended up having chapped lips that looked and felt like dried up prunes the whole day even though I used the conditioning balm. I thought it was supposed to be the better ones out there. Then I bought this one and wow...it didn't chap my lips at all! My lips look full and still the gloss hasn't disappeared and my lips actually feel moisturized. The colour is still on and it feels great on my lips. The gloss is fun to put on...it's kind of sticky like honey but good quality. I don't get why it got some bad reviews. This is a real lipstick compared to maybellines's superstay. The tube design is of higher quality than maybellines also.

I love this product but I think most who don't are using a heavy hand. That was my mistake the first time I used a colorstay lip color. use a little product and it stays nice for most of the day. not an outrageous shade of coral very wearable.

Had this stuff for a couple weeks and threw it out because it was sooo neon orange on me.
Could not be salvaged since the formula of the color doesnt allow mixing colors.
The top coat was nothing special to me beyond clear gloss that came off after 30 mins.
The color itself clashes way too much with my olive skintone (even w/a light hand), which surprised me b/c im constantly told i should wear more corals.
anyway, even the color alone or with gloss (it would make color globule with the gloss that would hang out on my lips...gross!) would flake off after a couple hours.
obviously would not repurchase.
if your not a fan of super bold/bright lip colors don't even give this color another thought...u will not get used to it.

I like this colour, I don't use it every day, but it is fun!! Especially since you can make it look so glossy with the topcoat, it is best applied with a light hand-this way it looks more like a pretty high shine gloss than a heavy orange lipstick. It has nice shimmer too. If you don't want a bright lipstick you probably shouldn't choose an orange!

This product must be judged against other products of its ilk -- that is to say other ultra-long-lasting lipcolor products. It cannot fairly be judged against lipglosses or regular lipsticks. This is Revlon's answer to the products put out by MF and CG that started this trend, with the Permacolor technology. There is a color base that dries on and supposedly does not budge, and there is a gloss topcoat that makes the product feel and look more moist.
Plusses: The coral shade is a lovely mid-range pink orange, with subtle shimmer. It is very wearable. It goes on sheerer than some products of this type. The product is in one unit -- color on one end, gloss on the other, so you do not have to cart around two wands. The color lasts a long time, through meals and beverages. It looks great when the gloss is freshly applied.
Minuses: The color base wears unevenly, and can peel, chip, and flake. The gloss is gone in no time, and unless you constantly reapply it, your lips feel as though they have been coated with a thin layer of latex. It tastes somewhat latexy, as well. The gloss brushes on with a nail polish type brush, and it is thin and gel-like. It takes time to cover your lips and the texture is not thick enough to last. It costs slightly more than some similar products.
Maybelline makes a better product and it costs less.
Update: I have showered twice in the past 24 hours, and have used a lathering cleanser. There is still product on my lips. I do not know if that is good or bad. The color is nice, but the texture is sticky.

When I first applied it, I was surprised how well it stays because it's soo hard to remove it. It looked quite lovely with the shine, so I decided to use it on my wedding...OMG, what a mistake, it cracked on my lips and went off in bits and chunks! I had to completely wipe it off and reapply many times before it was over.I think it is the gloss that makes the color fade, because when I don't layer it on top the colour, it seems to stay,but then it turns so dry. don't think will repurchase.

I love this product and have several other shades. However, Constantly Coral is screamingly bright. I put it on very thinly with a lipbrush and it still is too bright. An orangey-pink. It would probably work better in their Sheer line where it could be less pigmented. Revlon needs to tone it down somehow. Add some brown to it maybe.
