REVIEW & SWATCHES: Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

Also known as the Ultra HD “not-so-matte” Matte Lip Color…

Price: $9.49

Where to buy: Ulta
(has frequent buy one, get one 50% off sales)

Finish: satin

My Rating: 3/5
I like the Ultra HD Lip Colors, but they fall short on the “matte” claims. I prefer my Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks if I need bulletproof lip color!


Pros:

  • 100% wax-free gel formula is plush and creamy on the lips.
  • Doe-foot applicator makes application easier.
  • Smells like Bubbalicious gum & cupcakes!
  • Comfortable to wear – did not accentuate dry lips or flake.
  • Beautiful range of nudes, pinks, reds, magentas, & plums.

Cons:

  • It is definitely NOT matte! They are like a blend of a lipstick and a lip gloss. At first, it is very wet and slippery. In about 2-3 hours, it sets to a satin/stain.
  • Long-lasting┬áonly if you don’t eat or drink. It is very easy to wipe off (which is a con for real life, but a pro for lip swatching videos LOL)
  • The formula is not consistent throughout the shades. Seduction, Spark, & Infatuation were very streaky, whereas Addiction, Obsession, & Intensity were fully pigmented with just one swipe.
