I have a few new lip releases from Revlon to share with you today! Now I must admit, Revlon isn’t a brand that I’d usually gravitate towards – for no other reason than I’m just not really familiar with their products. So when they offered to send over their ‘Lip Wardrobe’ including a selection of their new lip launches, I jumped at the chance and thought this would be a great opportunity to get acquainted with the brand…
Firstly I have the Ultra HD Gel Lip Color (£5.99) – these are kind of half way between a lipstick and a balm, in a long twist up tube. The Ultra HD Gel Lip Colours include hyaluronic acid for an ultra hydrating formula, and the gel stick promises to be intensely hydrating, offering lightweight colour pigments suspended in a clear gel base, with a creamy mango and whipped vanilla scent.
I think these are probably my favourite products out of the bunch. My problem is I more than often have dry lips, and I love wearing matte liquid lipsticks, which really don’t help. So a nice lightweight hydrating lip product is just what I need – I love that these have a decent amount of pigment for a light hint of colour, and feel moisturising and super comfortable to wear.
- 720 HD Pink Cloud – a sheer petal pink.
- 700 HD Sand – a sheer light apricot.
Next I have the Ultra HD Matte Lip Color (above top product, £6.99) and the Ultra HD Matte Lip Color Metallic (bottom two shades, £6.99) – these products are both described as lightweight, high definition gel matte lip colours, offering a moisturising, velvety feel. They have the same light mango and vanilla fragrance as the above products. The original Matte Lip Colour comes in 7 shades, and the Matte Lip Colour Metallic comes in 5 shades.
The formula of these lipsticks is nothing like a traditional matte finish liquid lipstick, the product itself is very thick, yet it feels very light, smooth and moisturising on the lips – it really feels like you’re wearing a lip balm! They look particularly shiny on my swatches above but are way more matte when applied on the lips. I should also mention that they don’t ‘set’ or dry down like a traditional liquid lipstick, which is why they feel so hydrating. These products will move around and you’ll probably want to wear a lip liner too for definition.
- 675 HD Infatuation – a deep burgundy
- 705 HD Shine – a metallic mauve pink.
- 690 HD Gleam – a metallic light peach.
For fans of a more traditional lipstick, there’s also the Super Lustrous Lipsticks (£5.49) – these are formulated with microfine pigments, promising high-impact colour, with a smooth moisturizing feel.
These lipstick actually feel very similar on the lips to the Ultra HD Gel Lip Colors. They’re moisturising, and have more pigment, but a similar sheeny finish. I really like these and I think they’d definitely make great affordable day to day lipsticks.
- 045 Naughty Plum – a mid muted plum.
- 046 Bombshell Red – a slightly blue toned red.
- 044 Bare Affair – a light peach toned beige.
And lastly the Colorstay Lipliner (£4.29) – promising longwearing definition, these lipliners help lip colour last longer and prevent feathering and bleeding. There’s not really too much I can say about these lip liners – they do the job! They’re not drying in any way, and they come with a built-in sharpener, which is very handy.
- Plum – a mid toned pinky plum.
- Nude – a light beige nude.
The above Revlon products are all available now at Boots.
I’d love to hear if you use Revlon products, and what you’d recommend? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
