Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick | Product Review (Photos and Swatches)

Have Revlon outdone itself with the new ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick? Read more...

As a huge fun of almost all their lip colors, I have high hopes for this new collection.

Hmm.. have you noticed a bit of downgrade when it comes to the ColorStay packaging? Let me know if it's just me. But I am not liking the container for this one. Although the quality seems strudier than the ones from Wet n Wild and BYS, and that each container matches the shade of the lipstick, it isjust not at par with some of their previous lipstick collection. I must check out Revlon counters soon and see if this has been going on for awhile.

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick glides on smoothly and color payoff is quite amazing. The pigmentation is buildable but you barely need an effort. It looks and feels like a lipstick..... but wait at least 3 or 4 minutes... like those thriller shows, the lipstick starts to change. It becomes tacky and when you smack your lips together they stick. It was very uncomfortable. Especially since I hate sticky lippies (that's why I love lip butters!).

And guess what? The color transfers from from upper to my lower lip. It reminds me of Max Factor's Lipfinity when you forgot to use the gloss. It's that scotch tape-like stickiness that irks the hell out of me. Worst is that it settles on my lines (I've got many of those on my lips) and it dries out my lips even. :( And it's not that long lasting either. :(

So sad because they have such amazing, truly unbelievable color selections. I mean, just look at these shades? Aren't they gorgeous? I love all of these colors. Especially Iconic, Couture and Muse.

Okay... I really hate giving bad reviews. But these lipsticks are kind of a dud for me. It's unlike any other lip colors I've tried and believe me, I'm very easy to please. And despite the fact that I did my best to like this collection, I didn't. I only kept on using them because of the lovely shades. :(

You can definitely still try them out but always keep them close at hand if you don't want to experience that kind of lip liner effect where all your lipstick are gone except at the edge and corners of it? Only a few people can pull-off the Chola look.

Sadly, I've got to give a thumbs down to the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick. I'm sure they've got more collections that'll come soon that I'll love and gush to pieces.

The ColorStay Suede line has gotten several bad reviews. Haha! Nobody likes sticky lipstick! I agree with you about the ColorBurst lipsticks; they're smooth and creamy. A joy to apply.

Ms. Shen, may umulit po na paragragh:

Anyway, thank you for the review. I really admire how honest you are in your reviews even if the products were sent by the brand -- kahit pa bigtime ung brand. Kapag you don't like the product, you really say it.

What a bummer! I was hoping these would work because the pigmentation looks incredible and I LOVE Revlon's Lip Butters. I guess you can't win them all. Thanks for the review!

Actually, I loved this product the first time I used it (I bought Trendsetter). However, I have to change my mind about this after several times of using it. I just discovered that it changes texture after some time on the lips. Made my lips dry actually. http://prudencemd.com/beautylust/?p=323
