A new lipstick launch from Revlon is always a bit exciting, they tend to make products I like in packaging I love so I knew I would eventually have to pick a few up for review from the new Ultra HD range. I was in Boots at the weekend trying to top up my basket to the threshold spend (you point collectors know where I’m at) and 3 for 2 was on so.. here we are. Predictably I chose 3 pink shades however in my defense I expected the third (Orchid) to be a brighter purple shade and it really isn’t at all. All very samey choices as usual.
The formula’s are consistent, glossy and comfortable, more like an opaque lip gloss than a lipstick really. They remind me a lot of the lip butters only not quite as balmy and even the pale shades seem to have the same level of pigmentation in this line. I’m really not sure about them but it’s just person preference really. I’m not a big fan of glossy lipsticks and these are a little patchy/sheer for my liking but for those who prefer a glossy finish. I expected them to be just POW lipsticks.. worlds worst description, I know it’s what I thought when I saw the ad, really bold, saturated colour. I think that’s why I’m disappointed. Maybe over a liner I could achieve that but as a stand alone I don’t think they’re for me, nice colours but not quite what I expected from ‘Ultra HD’ lipsticks. Have you tried these? What did you think?
