Love, love, love the Colorstay Soft and Smooth lipsticks. Most of the stores where I buy makeup seem to not be restocking them, I'm afraid they are being discontinued!
The formula is creamy and smells just a bit like french vanilla. The color lasts for a notably long time.
Just a warning, the lipsticks are generally several shades DARKER than what in the tube looks like...personal experience!
Heavenly Mauve is a very nice mauve, a bit dark with just a bit of sparkle.

Did anyone else get a really bad tube of this? As in the lipstick itself is incredibly soft and just 'mushed' together in it's tube? Maybe I just got a bad tube. I really like this colour. I have been wearing it almost everyday and it really suits my skin tone (medium). When I first saw the name 'mauve', I thought it would be more purplish in colour, but its not. More like a dusty rose with a slight tint of brown which is really pretty. Lipstick glides on very smoothly, and lasts for a good amount of time without a lipbalm underneath. I find that they can be a little drying after awhile, but that's easily fixed with a bit of gloss on top. It does have the smallest bit of frost, but its hardly noticeable which is a plus for me. I don't like frosted lipsticks. Has a bit of a plastic smell, but that doesn't seem to bother me that much. :) Wouldn't buy again even though I love the colour as I want to try other shades. Took a lippy off for the super soft consistency of this lipstick.

This is a perfect every day color for me: not too much, but more than enough. With clear gloss on top it still wears for hours. It works for day or night. All around awesome, I just wish the container/packaging was prettier. With BOGO you can really get a steal.

I agree with the review before that it is a neutral lip colour with a "kick". It matches my nude lip colour perfectly but adds in intensity and sheen, giving me the perfect no frills natural look if I want to go heavier on the blush. It really is soft and smooth when you apply it and stays on without drying your lips out. The packaging is great, if clicks close tightly so you won't have to worry about it smearing on things in your purse. The one caveat about this --and I'm being really picky, is the artificial smell, but it could be a bonus because it's unscented. Great product.

Like the posters below, I saw this NOT as a true mauve but as having definitely pink undertones. I would describe it almost as a dusty rose that's heavy on the pink pigment.
On lips that are more pigmented than mine (see my profile for my general coloring) it would probably come off as a sincere neutral. On me, it's basically neutral with a kick. I really love this color.
It feels wonderful on my lips, is super-easy to apply because it's fairly slender, is wonderfully matte but not dry-looking, does not feel as dry as many other long-wears I've tried, and is long-lasting.
The reason I gave one lippie off is simply the fact that the color doesn't match its description. But try this--you'll love it.

I love this packaging of this product.I really liked the idea of heavenly mauve. The colour doesnt really look as good on though.

Heavenly Mauve isn't a true mauve, to my eye, but has bright pink overtones. It didn't work on NW20 (and admittedly somewhat conservative, when it comes to lip color) me. I'm taking one lippie off because the swatches on Revlon.com, the color name, and the store swatches are a bit misleading.
Overall, however, I really like this line. These lipsticks have great lasting power, with the exception of the sheer colors, which have above-average lasting power but don't perform as well as the non-sheers. They go on super-smooth and creamy, then set over the next few minutes, but don't feel drying. They're expensive for drugstore products (around $10), but well worth it if you can find them BOGOF.
