Sometimes something unexpected happens that turns a normal day into a great one. Like discovering there’s still one chocolate left in the box and it just happens to be your favorite kind. Or walking past your favorite shoe store’s shop window and realizing that they’re selling your dream shoes at half price. Or finding this in your mail box:
A package with no less than eight (eeeeeeight!) new Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick lipsticks. I’m telling you, this really made my day. Thank you, Revlon, for turning a very plain Friday morning into a super duper one! Revlon launched the ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in July and wants to meet the modern woman’s high demands with this new line of lipsticks. Because us modern ladies, we don’t just want our lipstick to look pretty. Oh no, we also want it to nourish our lips, to be easy to apply and to stay put for hours. High maintenance, what do you mean? ;-) I’ll reveal later if Revlon manages to meet all those expectations with the new ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick, but first let’s have a closer look at the eight shades I received!
How pretty are these colors and how awesome are their names? Revlon obviously found inspiration in the fashion world for the names of the new ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick lipsticks. All shades are definitely very runway-worthy and have a fantastic pigmentation and finish. My personal favorites are It Girl and Socialite. I wonder what that says about me… ;-)
So Revlon scores high marks with color, pigmentation and finish. But how about the other promises? Unfortunately the nourishing aspect that Revlon promised is not there. When I first apply these lipsticks they feel very creamy and they really glide on like butter, but after just 10 minutes my lips already feel dry again. I really need to add a little lip balm to keep my lips hydrated. So as far as texture and application goes the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick does fine, but in my opinion it is not nourishing or hydrating, especially not you compare it to the extremely moisturizing Revlon lip butters.
And the longevity? No complaints there. I don’t think that there’s a lipstick out there that will look perfect around the clock, but the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick definitely has great longevity. The color stays put for a good few hours, and if you touch up a little after every meal you’ll be fine.
Bottom line? I definitely like the new Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick. It did nothing for me as far as moisturizing goes, but I did like the texture and the longevity of it a lot. I am in love with how intense all eight colors are, and I think that the finish of each and every one of them is just gorgeous. And with so many shades to choose from, there is definitely a shade for everyone!
The Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick lipsticks are 23,90 CHF and are available at Manor and other specializer retailers.
