Revlon Lip Wardrobe

My blog is actually named after a Revlon lipstick called Cherries in the Snow. The brand kindly sent me their ‘Lip Wardrobe’, a blogger package which included their latest lip launches. It was the perfect opportunity to try the trial and compare the different formulas and discover which ones I liked best.

Review of the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks, Ultra HD Gel Lipcolours, Ultra HD Metallic Matte Lipcolours, Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour and Colourstay Lip Liners.
I am familiar with the Super Lustrous Lipstick formula as my Cherries in the Snow lipstick was created in this formula. It’s a smooth, pigmented lipstick which feels comfortable on the lips. I can highly recommend them if you are fed up of drying, cakey mattes and want ‘comfy’ lip colours to wear. The shades inside the box were Bombshell Red, Bare Affair and Naughty Plum. Although the named Bombshell Red suggests a potent pillar box red, this hue is more of a moodier berry red. Naughty Plum is a grey-toned plum shade which gives a vintage vampy feel. Bare Affair would be ideal for nude lipstick lovers as it is a neutral beige pink.

The two Colourstay Lipliners came in the shades Nude and Plum, these would work well under a number of shades. They are retractable pencils, so no need to fuss with sharpening. They create a very defined lip line without being drying on the lips. There is also no tugging to get the desired effect, MAC pencil lipliners I’m looking at you.

I’m not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks but I was intrigued by Revlon’s offering. The ‘Lip Wardrobe’ contained two formulas of the Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour. The darkest shade, Infatuation, was their basic matte liquid lip but the shades, Gleam and Shine were matte metallics, a strange concept to me! They all have a long stiff doe foot applicator and a heavy synthetic scent of birthday cake. The metallic mattes do have a pretty finish but they aren’t something I’d wear daily and they also take a little work as they aren’t completely streak-free. The matte dark shade is a miss for me, it applied so streakily and uneven, making a darker lip even harder to work with.

Lastly, my favourites from the ‘Lip Wardrobe’, the Ultra HD Gel Lipcolours, I received the shades Sand and Pink Cloud. Suzie from Hello October had mentioned the Sand shade in her recent favourites and I can see why. The formula of the HD Gel Lipcolours allows it to glide over the lips with ease and leaves a pretty sheen. As far as longevity they are better than most coloured balms I have tried but even when you do need to reapply this can be done without a mirror as they are that easy to use!
