Happy Thursday everyone! This week is flying by as it’s almost Friday-what?! That’s the perk of a long weekend I guess and I’m not complaining. 😉
I have another review on some budget friendly lippies so let’s get started.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor
Described as a, “lightweight, high definition velvety matte color. Moisturizing, velvety feel. 100% wax-free, gel formula.” I picked up HD Embrace, a nude pink and HD Kisses, a raspberry mauve shade.
Cost effective at under $10
Clear tube allows you to see the color
Color glides on smoothly
Good lasting power
Good array of colors
Not truly matte
Dry down time takes about 30 minutes
Lighter colors accentuates any imperfections
Sweet scent may not be for everyone
Overall: I’m a big fan of these lip products. They are reminiscent of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in both the feel and sweet scent. I found that the formula glides on smoothly provided your lips aren’t chapped. Both leave behind a stain while eating and drinking, with HD Kisses more pronounced than HD Embrace. The pigmentation on both are great and usually one swipe is all you need to get excellent coverage. Even as these dry down, I don’t find that these are completely a true matte because I can still rub my lips together and feel a bit of slip to them. With this said though, they aren’t really that moisturizing after they dry down either. I’d describe it as in between a satin and matte. The packaging on these is very sleek and the color you see is pretty much the color you get.
