I’m sure we’ve all dreamnt of a lipstick that doesn’t need touching up and that stays on even after we’ve eaten. And guess what I’ve found, the perfect solution. It’s the new addition to the Revlon lipstick family, the Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede lipsticks. Matte lips have been really in lately too so I was happy to try this baby out!
The lipstick comes in a cute cylinder/clear casing. As you rotate to draw more lipstick out, it has a clicking sound. Overall, it’s great that you can see the color of the lipstick clearly especially when you’re grabbing between many in your make-up case. No gripes about this one! The one I’m trying out happens to be the one in Finale. It’s a very wearable raspberry red that’s super pretty. In fact, let’s try it on! See how different your look can be when you change up your lips?
Oddly enough, when you apply the lipstick, it’s not matte or suede. It’s actually quite moisturising. In fact, there’s even a sheen to it. But before you judge, the lipstick then dries as time passes and as it dries, it clings on to your lips. It has a great texture and color when freshly applied and you have to wait about fifteen minutes for it to dry completely.
This lipstick is indeed transfer resistent. When it’s dry, it doesn’t budge. You can put your fingers to your lips and you will see no lip stains or anything on your fingers. It’s as if you’ve set your foundation with heaps of powder and nothing is going to budge it. It’s fantastic and I haven’t met a lipstick that’s like this before.
The only downside is that it can be a tiny bit drying once its dried especially if you have dry and flaky lips. Remember to moisturise with a lip balm or vaseline before you use this and while it is drying, do not purse your lips or you can get clumps. Do not layer this lipstick after you’ve applied it and do not be generous with the amount of lipstick you apply. The less is better so you can avoid the clumps and take advantage of how long lasting and transfer resistent this lipstick is!
I mean seriously, even after 9 hours, it still looks pretty much the same. I didn’t have to do any touching up at all, and during the time I was out, I did eat and drink but nothing transfered! This is Mag (makeupstash) and I at an event and I received lots of compliments with the color. Hehe. Anyway, it is super long lasting. I mean what lipstick lasts 9 hours and more without touching up.
Overall, I think if you need a lippie that lasts all day and is transfer resistent, go for it. But, if you have dry and flaky lips, you might want to give this one a miss. I do like the lipstick though, it’s for sure a ColorStay :)
