Like I mentioned above, Revlon's Ultra HD lipsticks are not like regular lipsticks. They have a gel base, instead of a wax base, because wax bases dilute the colour and pigmentation of the lipstick.
The features include:
- A wax-free high-definition gel technology that delivers true colour clarity without the heavy feel.
- Clear gel base that allows for a smoother, more even application vs. a conventional lipstick.
- Weightless feel.
- Full Coverage in one coat.
- Irresistible scent of whipped vanilla and cream mango.
The first colour I have is "Hibiscus". It is a pale orange colour.
Next is "Poinsettia", a blue-toned red, with just a hint of pink.
Last is "Magnolia", a nude peach-y colour.
Here are swatches of the three lipsticks, on my arm:
|L-R: Revlon's Ultra HD Lipsticks in "Hibiscus", "Poinsettia", and "Magnolia" (3 swipes each).|
Because the lipsticks didn't set or dry very well, the staying power wasn't great - on my lips they only lasted a few hours.
These lipsticks are for you if you are looking to try something new from the regular wax-based lipsticks on the market. This line comes in 20 colours - so it'll be easy to find a colour to suit your look or mood. Although the lipsticks on their own didn't work for me, I do think that these would be nicely paired with Revlon's Ultra HD Lip Lacquers, which I reviewed HERE - it could create a light base, and topping it with a lip lacquer could amp it up, and take it to the next level (I think topping "Hibiscus" with the lip lacquer in "Citrine" would look fab).
That's all for now, stay tuned for some more reviews, event coverage, and a look back on the best day of 2014. - Shawna
