Funny story: I’ve had bright pink bangs for quite a while now and one of my favourite things to do is find lipstick that matches the colour. It’s bold and fun and actually helps balance out the colour. But I dyed all my hair back to dark brown last week, which means no more bright pink. So how does that affect the way all those lipsticks look on me? And why did I find a great match after I got rid of the bangs?
Technically, I didn’t find the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Obsession after I got rid of my bangs, I actually got it at the London Drugs event in June. But I received so many items at that time, that I’ve been working my way through them slowly, and I only just recently got to photographing this.
The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor is a new gel formula that promises lightweight, high definition velvety matte colour. I find that it does feel light, and lasts a long time with staining, although it’s not transfer-proof at all.
It has a sweet vanilla scent, but it’s not your standard vanilla. This is actually a mango-vanilla scent, and while I couldn’t figure out the mango part on my own, I could tell it was vanilla with something slightly fruity, just enough to give it a fresh edge.
The applicator has a slightly triangle shape to it, with a dip in the centre to hold extra product. It’s quite easy to use, and allows for both quick application in the centre, and precise application along the edges.
Swatched, this lipcolor is true to the tube, or maybe a touch brighter. It may be billed as matte, but it’s not a super flat matte, nor is it drying. This is quite comfortable to wear.
Obsession is the brightest shade in the collection. There are 8 shades overall, and I’ve got my eye on trying a few of them.
