It would seem, I don’t already have enough matte lip products. Nope. I am not satisfied with my collection already, I am continually looking for the next revolutionary matte product. So this brings me to my recent Target romp. My Target is almost unrecognizable. There are so many new products and displays; I can’t keep up! Now Revlon has a special place in my heart. I have so purchased so many awesome products from them over the years, and I truly thought they might have created a drugstore holy grail.
I stumbled across the new Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor. They look freaking cool. Like this packaging is everything and part of the reason I ended up with three. I went home with Flirtation, Seduction and Temptation (great names right?). One is a coral color, a beige/brown nude and a bright pink. I gave the lippies a go as soon as I got home. Here is what I noticed.
The lippies smell great. They smell like the creamy Starbursts from years ago. Like somewhat vanilla but then there’s a tart fruit smell as well. It’s a super sweet fragrance. The lipcolors are really pigmented and brighter than I thought they would be. I actually like the way they feel on my lips, they’re smooth and I don’t imagine they will ever be as drying on my lips as other matte products.
Now for the parts I didn’t as much enjoy or understand. These “matte” lipcolors never go matte. I mean, after a good ten minutes on my lips, they never dry matte. The product stays glossy, which is fine I suppose, just maybe false advertising? I don’t know. Also the staying power is just not there. I put one of these babies on to go to Disneyland yesterday and I kid you not, I graced the gates to enter Disneyland, and I no longer had lipcolor on my lips. They vanish.
Other than those few things, I do think I will throw these into my lip rotation. I just will not keep them with the matte lip products, I will keep them with the glosses. Just saying.
Have you tried these? What did you think?
