Hello beautiful people!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend; and if you live in Toronto I hope you got to work/school safely, because we got 15cm of snow last night and the roads are crazy!
I recently picked up a couple of the new Revlon Ultra HD lipsticks, and as with most products, they have their pro’s and their con’s.
I can’t say a single bad thing about the actual lipstick itself, the formulation is super creamy and smooth, with incredible pigmentation.
When you apply this to your lips, there’s no skipping, no patchiness, one swipe of the bullet distributes an even and beautiful wash of colour on the lips.
I went with the shades Geranium and Rose.
Rose is a very natural brown-pink that is just slightly darker than my natural lip shade, and Geranium is a bright orange-coral that I think is going to be perfect for spring and summer!
These lipsticks smell nice, sort of floral with a hint of vanilla. They’re hydrating and lovely, but they don’t stay in place for hours. I needed to re-apply after eating and drinking, but aside from that these are fabulous.
Now, let’s talk about how awful the packaging is. It’s just clear plastic which I don’t really like, but the bullet doesn’t screw all the way to the bottom, so unless you put the lid back on absolutely perfectly, you’re going to scrape the product. Then you’re going to get lipstick all over the inside of the packaging, which looks messy and gross.
I just feel like all the other Revlon lip products have more luxurious packaging, and these just look a little bit cheap.
The product itself is amazing, which is why I will continue to use these, I’m just disappointed in the design of the packaging.
Let me know if you’ve tried these and what you think!
Until next time,
