Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

Revlon have always been one of my favourite drugstore brands, despite the brand no longer being cruelty free I find it the hardest one not to buy from as I just love their products. After spotting some new lipsticks the other week whilst Revlon was on 3 for 2 at Superdrug it was almost a give fact I was going to cave.

























I picked up two shades along with another lip butter which I will blog about separately. The two shades I chose were 'Womenswear' and 'It Girl', numbers 10 and 60 respectively. I think what initially drew me to these at the stand was the packaging, I mean, just look at it! I love the clear plastic which is pretty thick and sturdy; your lipstick will be well protected in your bag with this style of packaging I feel. The lipstick winds up as any normal lipstick with three clicks before winding up fully, I like the click...simple things eh.



Swatches are the bane of my life! I need a much better lens for this kind of thing but whilst I wait until that rather fantastic day these will have to do. As you can see 'Womenswear' is a nice pink shade whereas 'It Girl' is much more of a coral tone. I find that with these I do have to use a lip balm beforehand which for me is second nature considering I have so many to use up. I have read a number of reviews on these where people have stated that they are sticky, however I have to say I haven't found them to be too bad at all. I find 'It Girl' to be more sticky than 'Womenswear', but the stickiness soon wears off pretty quickly, therefore, for me I have no problem with this issue that others have reported to have.

In terms of longevity these do last pretty well for me, throughout eating and drinking I have found them still to be in place therefore good thumbs up from me to be honest. At £8.99 they're certainly not the cheapest lip products out there. These lipsticks are just slightly more than the Toyshop ones which I still have yet to try and I've read such good things about those; I must pick a shade at some point.

I cannot yet decide if these do dry my lips out as currently my lips are always dry so it would be unfair to say that these lipsticks are having an influence on this.



I'm wearing Womenswear in this picture. Please excuse the dark circles, I cannot get rid of them no matter what I try. It will also be nice to not have to take pictures in my rather small university room soon, roll on the end of third year!

I do recommend giving these ago but for £8.99 I wouldn't rush out to buy them, maybe see if you can pick them up on offer. There are apparently twenty shades out there to choose from so that's quite a variety.

  5. They seem really nice - i just reviewed the colour burst lip butters and I agree with you about the price, i think they need to bring it down just a bit as for me maybelline and rimmel seem much more realistic on pricing!

    Have a great day!

    1. I know, they used to be too which is even more annoying. I do struggle sometimes with my battle at being cruelty free, it's not easy and I really do think how much I want something before I buy it, I guess nobody is perfect :)

      I really like Womenswear :) thank you! xx
