I do love lipstick, but it is something I only wear occasionally; having to be extra careful when eating or drinking so my lipstick doesn’t smudge just isn’t something I want to do on a daily basis! However, if I have a special event, my lipstick collection gets its chance to shine. I always opt for either a matte lipstick or lipliner, but when I was given the chance to try something a little different from Revlon’s newest lip edition, I couldn’t wait!
Revlon’s Ultra HD™ Lipsticks are the latest lip technology to be introduced to the brand. They have a unique gel based formula which aims to keep your lips hydrated whilst providing the long lasting wear that every lipstick addict is on the hunt for. My first impressions were great thanks to the luxurious packaging, making them look and feel more expensive than the £7.99 price tag. Upon application, I wasn’t disappointed. The consistency was super buttery and pigmented in colour, which I was surprised with. I did find that because the lipstick is gel based and has a very similar texture to a lip balm that it’s best not to apply it straight out of the bullet. Instead I found using either a lip brush or dabbing it onto the lips worked well.
The finish of the lipstick is definitely a sheen, and I was extremely impressed with the colour pay off with the 3 shades I tried. Within the whole range, there are 12 to choose from! My favourite one which I love wearing is Rose, a perfect everyday nude shade with a hint of pink. Hibiscus and Gladiolus I loved as well, but they didn’t pop as much with my skin tone as Rose did. Instead I could see them looking lovely on darker or warmer skin tones. The wear of the lipsticks lasted a few hours before having to be topped up. Considering the lightweight formula of the lipsticks I think this is pretty good. If you want to try one of these three gorgeous shades, they’re now available in the Glamour Beauty Power List 2015 box!
