Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor Review in HD Kisses and HD Embrace!

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.

Pros 

Cost effective at under $10

Sleek packaging

Clear tube allows you to see the color

Color glides on smoothly

Good lasting power

Good array of colors

Excellent pigmentation

Cons

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.

Have you tried the Revlon HD Mattes? What’s your favorite matte lipstick?

  1. I think these are the types of “matte” that I’d enjoy. I do NOT like the kinds that are so matte they make the lips look like sandpaper! Kisses looks like a shade I’d wear too!

  2. Love the shades you picked up – those are my go-to colours. I have a few of the NYX Soft Matte lip creams and even though I love the colours, I just don’t wear them that often, the formula is way to drying on my lips. Still searching for a liquid lipstick that I can actually wear. 😦

    • Awww. I do like the NYX SMLC as I am also addicted to that scent, lol. Hmmm I’m trying to figure out what liquid lipstick might be good for you… Well the Lorac Alter Ego Lipglosses aren’t liquid lipsticks but they are super pigmented and comfortable to wear.

      • Unfortunately I can’t get Lorac here in Canada 😦 But I did try one of Kat Von D’s liquid lipsticks recently and I think it might be one that I could actually wear – it’s not to drying. So fingers crossed! 🙂

      • 😦 That sucks. Hopefully someday soon! I like the KVD Liquid Lipsticks but I do pair them with lip balm underneath to make it more comfortable. Doesn’t last as long but at least it feels better. 🙂

  3. These are so pretty! I have heard so many good things about these and I’d love to pick one up to try it but as of a few days ago I’ve put myself on a lip product buying ban haha!

  4. I LOVE these posts! I always feel so overwhelmed when searching for new lip products so it’s great to have recommendations. My favorite has actually been from Rimmel but they no longer sell it 😦 I’ll have to check these outs!

    • I’m addicted to lip products so I have a few on the blog for you to check out, lol. Don’t you just hate when companies discontinue coveted products? Yes these and the NYX ones are nice and affordable so you can pick up a few shades. 😉

  5. I have been meaning to try these but I am never sure if I should. I love the colour of HD Kisses! So pretty!
    I think my favourite matte lipstick would have to be Divine Wine from Maybelline’s Bold Matte collection. They are so beautiful and comfortable. It feels like you are wearing a cream lipstick but it looks matte. They are spectacular!

    • HD Kisses is a gorgeous shade that I think would suit a lot of people. Oooh that name sounds so familiar. I don’t think I own that shade but it is really pretty. I have Touch of Spice and I hear ya on the texture. Impressive for the price and the shades are all lovely.
