Review: NEW! Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

20 May

Revlon ColourStay Suede Lipstick

I love nearly all of Revlon’s makeup so I was really excited when I stumbled across there new range of ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks in Boots. I went a little crazy and bought all the shades they had in store. Obsessed with Revlon much? I think I am!

The Revlon ColourStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick states that it has a suede effect (meaning matte) and lasts 16 hours. If any lipstick lasts 16 hours then I will be hugely impressed.

Revlon ColourStay Lipstick Colours

Packaging – I love it! The lid is very securely on and it won’t pop of whilst in your handbag.

Application – The lipstick glides on very smooth. With one stroke all the shades are quite sheer. I had to swipe it about four times across my lips to get a strong colour, which is very annoying. Once applied, after a few strokes, they all have a strong pigmentation.

Texture – This is where I start to get confused with this lipstick. When first applied it has a smooth, moisturising, glossing texture that feels really nice on the lips. After about 5-10 minutes the ColorStay lipstick feels likes it sets on the lips and the texture changes to the ‘suede’ effect. The lipstick turns matte and has a slightly sticky texture when you blot your lips together. I love the matte look but I don’t like the (very slight) sticky texture.

16 Hour Wear – The good thing is he lipstick doesn’t transfer onto glasses or smudge whist eating. But… and there is always a but, after a couple of hours the lipstick goes into any creases in your lips, is very uneven and patchy. It may stay on for a long time but not how you applied it. I didn’t take the lipstick out with me when I was wearing it so I had to put on a clear lipgloss to smooth out the patchiness, which worked

Removal – It doesn’t stain, WoooooHooooo! I used a makeup wipe to remove it and it came of with a little scrub.

Overall -I would have to carry it in my bag and reapply it about every  2-3 hours to stop any creasing, so the 16 hours wear maybe true but it just won’t look very nice. The main plus for the ColorStay Suede lipstick is that is does not transfer off the lips. My boyfriend was amazed that when I kisses him it felt like I had nothing on my lips. This is a big bonus for me as I can’t even normally peck him on the check without getting lipstick all over his face.

I have a lot of the colour range so I don’t think I will be running out fast to re-purchase any of them. My favourite colours are the deep plum (35 – Backstage) and deep pink (5 – Muse).

They can be found in high-street retailers for £8.99. Boots currently selling them for £6.99.

The Revlon ColurStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick is long lasting, matte and has wearable colours but the few glitches it has, are big ones. I would definitely advise you to exfoliate your lips beforehand to prevent creasing.
