Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

Wednesday, 11 March 2015

These lipsticks are nowhere new to the beauty shelves and I’ve had mine for quite some time. The ColorStay Ultimate Suede lipsticks are extremely long-lasting and very matte. At first I didn’t really like these lipsticks because they used to make my lips feel absolutely uncomfortable until I got used to them. You won’t really feel anything suede on your lips, however, if you exfoliate your lips often and you always use a very moisturizing lip balm, a few minutes after applying the lipstick, if you feel your lips, they feel amazingly soft and smooth.

The product has a cute packaging, which I find quite strong, the bottom barrel of the lipstick has the shade of the lipstick while the top part has a smooth velvet soft black barrel. The barrel has a hard, clear plastic cover, while the lid is also a hard plastic lid, which displays most of the lipstick.

The lipstick shade, 080 Fashionista, is a burnt red shade ,which has a soft shimmer and the lipstick doesn’t appear as dark on lips, so it needs two or three layers to look like the actual shade. After applying the lipstick, it needs a few minutes to set in and lips may feel slightly sticky or tacky. However, after pressing you lips against a tissue, the sticky feeling should go away.

I find these lipsticks extremely long-lasting and they last around 6 to 8 hours which I find impressive. I would really recommend you give these lipsticks a try, they retail around R120, which is reasonably worth it because you’re getting your money’s worth. However, if you don’t like your lips to feel waxy or heavy, I wouldn’t recommend this product for you.
