Revlon | Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour // Liquid Lipstick
Stop your Sephora haulin' - liquid lipsticks have finally hit the British high street! After seeing the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour (Passion) in a number of blogger mail hauls shortly before its release, I lived for this liquid lipstick. It was all I talked about in #bbloggers chats and I checked the Boots website literally almost daily waiting for it to appear.
This is because liquid lipsticks are my kryptonite. If formulated correctly they look flawless on the lips, are incredibly low maintenance and last ~almost~ an entire day. So how did this match up to my extensive
The packaging is kick ass. Frosted - ooh, metallic - yes!
No balling up, which makes for comfortable wear and easy re-application.
Lasts around 6 or so hours with snacks, beverages etc.
One of the qualities I look for in a liquid lipstick is it's ability to be transfer proof - I drink a whole lotta coffee and don't have patience to be discretely wiping my smacker marks from the rim every two minutes. But, instead of drying down to a matte or even creamy formula, the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour (Passion) leaves you with a glossy sheen that stains your lips. So, whilst my afternoons are all about the matte, my mornings consist of lipstick kisses - everywhere.
If you're not big into strongly scented products, you should probably just leave this in your basket. I actually don't think I've smelt a stronger lipstick - think buttercream icing over red velvet cake smothered in Starburst. On the bright side, it's not exactly unpleasant and does disappear shortly after application so, personally, was not that much of an issue.
As a new release, the colour selection covers a capsule lip wardrobe - but there's not much room to be adventurous. Where are my browns people?!
Ultimately, the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour (Passion) is a pleasant venture into the world of liquid lipsticks from one of the mainstream high street brands and I'd definitely look into purchasing more of the range.
