Revlon is definitely a brand that attracts my attention. I don't know if it's the fact that Emma Stone is their spokesperson and I just want to be her, or if it's their ability to create great affordable products but I always eagerly await their new launches. My friend Abby and I have been anticipating the release of the Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors ever since we first saw them on Instagram. We've literally waited months! And I'll tell you what, they didn't disappoint.
There are 7 shades to choose from. With spring coming up, I had to pick up Flirtation which is a coral shade and I also grabbed Devotion which is a muted raspberry pink. Annoyingly, stock was limited when I went on my Boots-spree, but I've also got my eyes on Seduction, which is one of those colours that, to me, looks unappealing in the bottle but when applied is a dreamy everyday nude.
The formulation isn't 100% matte, which is ok with me as I like a little sheen, but can be slightly misleading. The colours are highly pigmented and apply opaquely to the lips with the doe-foot applicator. They last quite a long time (minus food), and they wear down evenly without flaking. Most importantly, I love the hybrid formula which is somewhere between a lipstick, lip gloss and lip balm. For me, hydration is so important.
I really do love these lip colors, Revlon just got it so right. From the sleek bullet style packaging to the 7 equally beautiful shades (and they definitely taste like cupcakes #win), these are definitely worth putting on your beauty wishlists.
