Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

Revlon’s recently brought out some long lasting lipsticks and me being a girl who hates having to reapply during the day, couldn’t wait to get my hands on one :)
I couldn’t find them at the two boots stores but there was a nice supply of them in my Superdrug and so I grabbed it in platinum petal, a lovely rosy shade with some pinky tones.

It’s meant to be :
* Food-proof lipcolor with a built-in, ultra-conditioning topcoat
* One-step application- No topcoat required for comfortable wear
* Stays comfortable and wears beautifully for up to 12 hours
* Does not feather or fade; no touch-ups required, even after meals
* Available in 20 full-coverage, soft satin shades

Revlon seems to have a really nice range of colours(12 shades), from nudes to slightly more sultry shades, there doesn’t seem to be any really dark shades- however I think most people will be able to find something to suit them!

It’s £8.99 for 3ml which is a bit expensive for a Revlon lip colour, but if it does all it promises then it’ll be worth it :p You apply like a lip gloss with a doe foot applicator – I actually quite like this, I feel I can get more precise application =]

Apart from the doe foot applicator the packaging is just OK. I think it looks pretty, but there’s no suction-bit at the top (I’ve no idea what it’s called!) but basically you get a lot of product on the applicator :/

First impressions:
It’s thick, pigmented, and seems to apply really smoothly and evenly! When I first applied it I was really impressed. But once it dries it seems to go very sticky – almost tacky… I’ve got it on now, and I can’t say my lips feel ‘dry’ exactly & it hasn’t made any dry patches stand out but they don’t feel hydrated at all. It smells like plastic and it’d definitely noticeable – it’s not AWFUL though.

After 3 hours
Since wearing it, I’ve licked my lips, drank etc. and the colour is still there – just as strongly pigmented, just as sticky.

- very attractive right? :p
After about 6 hours:
It’s faded significantly but there’s still a lot of colour on my lips :) It’s not made my lips uncomfortably dry but I really don’t like the sticky texture going on!

- I reapplied it with a lip balm over the top when I went out for a meal & problem solved :) It lasted all through the meal, drinks and it was still on when I got home after a long night out!

Overall, I think this is a VAST improvement on other long lasting lipsticks (all the others have made my lips feel awful!) but it’s still less than perfect. I can’t imagine me reaching for it in winter – when I suffer with dry lips ‘cos I think this would make any dry patches stand out, but for summer, I’m really impressed!

lol I think a lipstick that lasts 12 hours and still looks just as good as first applied is going to remain a fantasy though :p

(Sorry about the quality of the pictures, there's a little bit of glitter in the lipstick and for some reason my camera refuses to take decent pictures of glitter! :p)
- most ended up like this :p
