Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Liner in White Mist

White Mist was released in the new Revlon Pacific Coast Collection by Gucci Westman, alongside the new Baby Sticks and Lip Butters. I've never seen a white gel liner at the drugstore before, and of course I had to test it out! 

White mist comes in a small plastic box (which was difficult to open), packaged in a glass jar with a long plastic cap. I'm  unsure why the liner is describes as both a 'creme' and a gel.

The cap pops off, revealing a small flat liner brush. The brush hairs are flimsy and scratchy, making it completely useless to me. The concept is a good idea though! 

The glass jar contains .08 ounces of product for $10.80, MAC Fluidline contains 1 ounce for $16 to put it in perspective. For the drugstore, it's a bit expensive for such a little amount.

As you can see, White Mist is a very shimmery, sheer white. The line is one swipe, while the other swatch is multiple layers. The color didn't build easily, and the liner smudged easily.  It definitely isn't an opaque white, which was what I was expecting it to be!

Claims: "Easily glides to create delicate to dramatic lines. Lasts 24 Hours. Waterproof." 
Pigmentation: This eyeliner is very sheer. The pigmentation is barely there.
Finish/Texture: The finish is extremely shimmery, almost pearlescent. The texture of the liner is creamy, but I found that it was difficult to apply because of that. 
Lasting Power: Ok, this liner will not last 24 hours! It faded shortly after I applied it, I couldn't even get an hour worth of wear. 
Price/Availability: I paid $10.80 at CVS, this is limited edition


  • Concept of packaging is different
  • Brush is cheap quality
  • Small amount of product for $10.80/Expensive for drugstore
  • The liner was sheer & shimmery/not what I expected
  • Liner smudged almost insantly after application
  • Doesn't live up to claims
  • Also, this product claims to do different things on the packaging then it says on Revlon's website.. seems a bit odd to me, check out site claims here.

On the packaging and on the website, this gel liner appears to be an opaque white. Of course I was disappointed when I found it to be a shimmery wash of barely there white. The concept of the mini brush is a good idea in theory, but the cheap quality of brush steers me away from using it. The creaminess of the liner seems nice at first, but it slides right off my eyeliner brush very time. The formula almost feels like it has been mixed with water, which I've never experienced with a gel formula before. Although the formula claims to be waterproof and have 24 hour wear, it melted off within minutes of application. This was my first time trying a Revlon Colorstay gel liner, and it's honestly one of the worst gel liners I've ever tried. 

Hopefully I will be able to find a better white gel liner at the drugstore soon! If you know of any good ones, please tell me about it in the comments. 


  1. It looks very creamy and easy to smudge :( Id go for an elf eyeliner that are so much cheaper x

  2. How disappointing! I got so excited because I thought it would be an opaque, creamy white (and from the drugstore!) but no such luck. Thanks for reviewing :)

  3. Sorry to hear it was such a disappointment, especially with the Baby Sticks not being up to scratch either! Yikes!

  4. Just looking through some of your past posts, and realised I missed a couple. How rubbish does this sound? Revlon is quite expensive compared to the other brands in the drugstore.. So you'd expect more. If it was more opaque, it'd be pretty special xxx

    1. I know, I always hold them up to a higher standard. I agree, and thanks for checking out my posts :)
