Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor (R169 ) is a brand new release from Revlon, I am sure you’ve seen the adverts or the eye-catching boards in selected stores. Since tomorrow is a holiday and I know we are all secretly excited to stay in and do nothing I thought I would share a review of the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours. Its month-end and some of your’ls got paid yesterday so if you’re looking to shopping then this is definitely a must Read.
Revlon is one of my favourite makeup brands, I have had the best luck with most of their products. They had me hooked on their products the moment I tried their Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balms. I remember how smitten I was and still am. It smell minty and great which is why I was super excited when they launched their Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours. I’ve had these two lippies for a very long time and I’ve been trying them out and trying my best to love them.
I feel like I need to mention the fact that their prices are really steep for a drug store brand. When I hear drug store, I think affordable and R169 is sort of pushing it. The Revlon Ultra HD Lip Colours come in 6 shades. I bought two of their Liquid Lipsticks in the colours “Addiction & Love”
I am obsessed with the packaging on these Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours ! They are unique, simple, chic plus they come in oval-shaped tubes that have a frosted matte finish (how cool is that).
The applicator is a paddle shape that tapers toward the end, rather than a doe foot-style and I much prefer this type. You can cover your lips quickly while still staying precise. The applicator is soft on the lips and very precise. The first time I used the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour I was extremely confused because I could have sworn it said matte on the bottle =. I had to do a double take just to make sure I didn’t pick up the wrong tubes. The Ultra HD liquid Lipsticks are not drying at all, they are extremely moisturizing, they smell delicious. Almost like a sweet vanilla/caramel frosted cupcake, don’t be tempted to taste them though, they taste like lipstick, lol I was so disappointed.
The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours aren’t actually all that matte, after trying them on, on different occasions I can safely say they are more velvet and creamy liquid lipstick. When wearing these lippies or at a distance they do look slightly matte but because I am a woman who loves me her matte lippes I can safely say Revlon sold us dreams with the name of these however on their website they do describe them as velvet textured..
I guess they meant Matte in a different (not shiny, not glossy, not glittery) kind of way and not in our old-fashioned terms. The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours have a velvety finish, they are rich in colour, non-drying and good quality too.
Would I buy them again ? Did I like them? Would I purchase the rest of the Range ?
Well….. I would buy them again but not because they are great Matte Liquid Lipsticks, no I would buy them because I don’t mind their velvet texture and because they are just the perfect middle ground between glossy and matte. I have to state though that I found they bleed a little plus they transfer. If you’re going to eat anything be prepared to head to the powder room to reapply.
Overall, I’m so happy to have found a liquid lipstick that’s the perfect mix between (Ruby Woo) matte and (essence) glossy. I don’t mind that Revlon sold me dreams about this semi-matte lip product. Truthfully, I like that the Revlon Matte Lip Colours make my lips look plumper! I feel like this is one of those products that you’re either going to really will either love or hate
The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour in HD Love
This Liquid lipstick is a rich bright orange toned RED. It’s such a Valentines day colour and I love it. If you’re feeling a bit blue i suggest putting this on and going out for a night of dancing.
The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour in HD Addiction
The second colour I bought was the Revlon Ultra HD Lip Colour in the Colour HD Addiction, this is a magenta coloured liquid lippy to die for. I love the colour and I am obsessed.
Have you tried any of the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours ??
