This colour looks a little 90s on me because it turned out a bit purple against my skin tone, but I still like it because I don't have a colour quite like this. As always, the consistency of Revlon lipsticks are amazing! It is VERY moisturizing for a lipstick (but, I still wear Blistex underneath). I find that I tend to mix this colour with anything with a pinker tone like Revlon's Raspberry Pie Lip Butter. The mix creates a great burgundy, which makes this colour very versatile.
I picked up 4 dark ‘fall colors’ of Revlon lipsticks at a surplus store for .99 a piece (Sultry Sable, Black Cherry, Raisin Rage, Va Va Violet), and Sultry Sable is by far my favorite (surprising, since I thought I’d like it the least...) Sultry Sable is a deep, plummy-brown crème. Its heavier on the plum than the brown on me, so it doesn’t look ‘dated’. I gravitate towards berry & plum lipcolors, but I usually use sheer formulas, so this provides a little more coverage than what I’m used to. I like it, nonetheless, for a bit more of a ‘made-up’ look. There is no scent or taste, and the formula is creamy and comfortable. I apply a layer of lip balm, blot, and then 1 layer of ‘Sultry Sable’ and press my lips together. This gives me a perfect plummy-brown stain that looks great with all my fall colors. It can also be built up for a dark, vampy look. The lasting power is really good- the color lasts 3-4 hours on me. It fades evenly, so I’ll just top with a little balm or gloss if I need to refresh it a bit. The packaging is nice and classic, black with gold accents, with a clear topped-cap so you can easily view the shade. I’m really glad I picked this up, and just purchased a backup on Ebay, as this shade is discontinued. continued >>
Sultry sable is a medium brown-plum lipstick. It stays on long enought. It's a mysterious color! Meaning vampy-sexy! I use a plum lip liner with this one and raisin in infallible lip gloss by l'oreal with this one! The raisin lip gloss brings a nice luminosity over it,it's grape and gold! Beautiful! So,that combo works for me! Love it!
I love this color. I am NC50 MAC and this is a nice shade for me. However, I am a neutral lip kinda girl and I wear this only during the weekends or at nights. The consistency is very nice; no shimmer and I would say there is some shine when you put it on; its not completely matte. My lips are in pretty much always in good condition and when i put this on, its not drying or anything. I put it in after my lip balm has absorbed.
I would say the shade is kinda in between purple and maroon.
I think I got caught up in selecting a fall color when I bought this. Maybe it was the stain on my lips that enhanced the color in the store. I did open it to try it on and bought it. I need to work with it... maybe find a lip liner that can jazz it up a bit. Right now it seems too brown on my lips and with my light skin tone. It is pretty vampy, but more of a 20's flapper vamp. It's like this lipstick has a brown base with a raisin mauve tone throughout it.
This is my favourite lipstick. I've have tried pretty much all of Revlon's dark lipsticks (Black Cherry, Va Va Violet, Wine Not, Raisin Rage, etc. etc.) and by far I like this one the best. I'd describe it as a brownish blood red with purple undertones. With my pale skin and dark hair, it looks vampy, which I love. On darker skin tones it would look more natural (obviously). It's versatile in the sense that I can wear it full strength for a bold night time look, or blot it for a more subdued look during the day. The staying power is only so-so.
Sultry Sable is a fabulous color! It looks amazing on my NC42/MUFE HD 155 skin, and I think it would flatter a variety of skin tones.
The color: a warm, rich, mahogany brown with plummy red undertones. I've paired it with reddish lipgloss to make it more of a brick red. My fave combo is with Milani's Summer Baby lipgloss, and probably any shimmery gold/coral lipgloss would create a similarly smashing effect. I like it better than Clinique Black Honey (and it's much longer-lasting), which looks similar to Sultry Sable on me (Black Honey is more of a wine, though). Apply lightly for the effect in the pic or with a heavier hand for a more dramatic look.
The texture: smooth, just the right level of control, and finishes nicely. It lasts a long time, esp. if you're careful with eating, etc. Moreover, it's a color that "wears off" well -- I'm lazy about touching up, and this color fades in a uniform way (unlike many other lipsticks) that still looks nice after a full day.
The price: I found this on clearance for $2 at Target -- an absolute steal. The regular price is $6-8, I think, depending on location -- still a bargain.
Sultry Sable is a creme color lipstick. It's a beautiful dark brown, almost cocoa brown color very flattering on my NC45, caramel skin tone. I'll be wearing this to work often during these fall months. Very work friendly and flattering. It's a creme formula (my favorites) no shimmer and super moisturizing on my lips, since they tend to get dry during the cold months, this will be a keeper. The color stays put for most of the day. I spend alot of time giving lectures and I need something that stays put. I'll be buying this again..bought it on sale at the local drugstore.
