Aloha, Beauty LoveCat,
Are you interested in the Revlon ColorStay offerings like the new Ultimate Suede lipstick line? Keep watching to see my thoughts on the matter. If you like Revlon Lipstick–some of the best lipsticks in the drugstore level of all time–you may want to watch the video.
Revlon claims that the ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks give “both moisture and wear? This velvety soft formula with moisturizing shea butter and aloe is food proof and doesn’t quit. 20 Shades. Apply once and go.”
These Revlon Lipsticks retail for about $8.00USD at US drugstores and at any chemist or pharmacy or discount retailer internationally. In my opinion, they are not worth the money, despite being so inexpensive. They do not feel “suede-y”. Like other typical “longwear” lipsticks, they dry out your lips and are not ideal if you have cracks, lines or chapping on your lips. The formula sucks the moisture from your mouth and creates a sticky, tacky feel and the color starts to flake and scale a bit after about 5-10 minutes. And the formula is not ideally layered over or under lipbalm, as proper pigmentation is hard to get with a more emollient layer.
Here are some detail photos:
They don’t live up to what they claim to do, so, other than the cute names like Fashionista, Couture, Socialite, Front Row and Muse, and nice looking colors, this iteration of the Revlon ColorStay family does not live up to the line or to the Revlon brand.
Final Grade: I give it a D. If it weren’t for the cute names, the product would get an F.
Remember: US drugstores like Walgreens, Longs, CVS and Rite Aid often have generous return policies, so make sure you ask if you can return an item if you tried it out and didn’t like it. In my experience, I have been able to return used makeup items with a receipt. Without a receipt, I’ve gotten store credit on a gift card.
