Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color
It’s no secret that I love matte lip products and will never tire of trying out new formulas, especially if we’re talking drugstore products.
I’ve been seeing snaps of these new Revlon Ultra Matte Lip Color lippies all over Instagram, but couldn’t track them down until about a week a go (my local drugstores suck when it comes to beauty products).
Revlon says that these are “Lightweight, high definition velvety matte color. Moisturizing, velvety feel. 100% wax-free, gel formula. Available in 8 high definition shades”; Three shades that I picked up are: Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Addiction, Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Seduction and Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Passion.
What I love about these:
-the packaging and the applicator are awesome. The applicator is soft and just the right size.
-the formula is very comfortable, non-drying and velvety smooth.
-the colors are gorgeous and intense.
-the mango and whipped vanilla fragrance is very pleasant.
-the longevity. These are very long-lasting, which I actually found quite surprising. With constant water-drinking, the product stayed on my lips for good 6 hours.
-the formula feels a bit similar to a balm, which is a good thing because it leaves the lips feeling moisturized.
-despite being long-lasting, these aren’t a nightmare to remove like with a lot of similar products.
What I don’t like:
-these are marketed as matte products, but they look quite glossy once applied. I find that they go matte, eventually, but it takes at least 15 minutes for the product to “dry” and become matte. Even then, it’s more of a velvety finish that isn’t quite completely matte.
-a lip liner is a must with these (I like to use a clear lipliner like this one from MUFE) as the formula tends to feather out quite a bit.
-as much as I love all three colors I picked up, I really wish that there were more shades in this collection. There are a lot of pink-ish colors, but I’m longing for some brown-y, mauve-y nudes.
I really like these Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color lippies, just wish they were actually matte. The formula is fabulous, it wears comfortably, but like I said, it does tend to feather out a bit (hence my messy swatches, do forgive me). With that being said, I’ve been rocking Seduction all week long and I absolutely love this color!
