I've really been getting into wearing colour on my lips a lot more these days and I'm slowly progressing into lipsticks as opossed to colour glosses. I've been loving the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balms so when I saw Revlon bought out some new Colorstay lipcolours I was intrigued.
|Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede|
I picked these up at Priceline when they were 2 for $25 and got the shades 070 Preview and 001 Silhouette. As you can see in the swatches below preview is the deeper colour of the two and is a neutral mauvey pink and silhouette is a lighter more purple colour. I love that the cases are the same colour as the actual lip colour, it just makes it so much easier when I'm rummaging around in my bag.
My favourite colour out of the two is Silhouette, it just suits my skin tone perfectly. Upon applying the lipcolour I found the consistency to be quite creamy and pigmented; I only need to apply a light coat once. Unfortunately it's about 5 minutes after applying that things start to go downhill. The Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks are drying!! They also accentuate every line or crease in your lip however I did find this wasn't so noticeable when I used a lip scrub first. The colour lasted on my lips for around 3 hours which is less than the wear time I get from the Kissable balms. The other thing that annoyed me about these is you can really feel them on your lips, if you rub your lips together you can just feel the lipstick moving around and the dry bits on your lips are even more accentuated. Overall I was really unimpressed with this product and I wouldn't recomend them to you.
If you were really sold on one of the colours (like I am with Silhouette) you can persevere with it and use a lipscrub first, then apply lipcolour and possibly try a balm or gloss overtop, I however am on the lookout for a similar colour in a better formula.
Have you tried these? What did you think?
