Revlon launches the new Revlon HD ultra Matte lip colours a little while ago, and Revlon send me two colours to test out. I was pretty impressed , so over the weekend I picked up two more colours. Now first off - These are hard to find , as they fly off the shelves - and for a good reason - they are pretty awesome liquid lipsticks.
If you have used the HD Lip Lacquers or Lipsticks you will find these have the same vanilla / mango smell to them. I personally like the smell (but I know some people might not ). It doesn't linger too long , but thought it might be worth a mention.
I find these to wear pretty well too - about 4/5 hours (and that included drinking coffee - but they are not transfer proof ) . The wear is pretty comfortable and doesn't dry out your lips - which is great for a liquid lipstick. I like that it leaves a stain on your lips too - so the colour wears off nicely and leaves a pretty stain on your lips (which could easily pass for a lighter version of the colour for another 3/4 hours) The colour range isn't that big , but the six colours in the range covers your everyday colours.
The packaging is pretty neat too. It looks pretty sleek and I love the doe foot applicator - some brands make them too hard but this is firm enough to apply the lipstick nice and evenly without hurting your lips.
So onto the swatches of the 4 colours I have :
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Seduction
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Flirtation
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Temptation
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Addiction
And the lip swatches -
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Seduction :
This one is without a doubt my favourite. I can see myself wearing this one the most - it's such a pretty nude ( and we know I'm a sucker for a gorgeous nude lipstick / gloss ) .
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Flirtation :
This is a gorgeous coral colour . While I'm not usually a fan of coral lip colours - this one is gorgeous. I love this one on more summery days - and it leaves the prettiest stain on your lips.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Temptation :
This is a gorgeous bright pink . A perfect colour yet again for summer ( I personally believe you can rock any lip colour in any season - make your own trends .) The stain on this one is pretty awesome too .. It faded beautifully on the lips.
Revlon Ultra Matte HD Addiction :
This one I got specifically for winter - and I can see myself reaching for this one a lot. As you know - next to nude I LOVE wearing berry / purple lip colours . This is such a rich gorgeous colour that will be perfect for the upcoming colder seasons ( If you are not moving into spring of course ). This one is another one that leaves a gorgeous stain on your lips - a real winner.
As I mentioned , these are available in six colours , and retails for R155. Clicks has them on their Autumn beauty special where you can get 3 for the price of two. But hurry up if you want to take advantage of that offer - these babies are really selling out fast .
Have you tried them before ? Do you love the matte lip trend ?
