My mom got this in Finale, it didn't look like she tried it on so I did and it didn't take long to realize that this sucked. I feel bad that my mom spent so much money on a crappy lipstick. It's sticky and tacky even when it dries. It looked patchy on my lips and was made worse every time I licked or pursed or rolled my lips (together). I didn't mind not seeing shine but that just exaggerated the dry formula. None of it seemed hydrating, even applying the lipstick didn't feel good. It's too bad. I really liked the color, and because I didn't see a shine, it looked like an awesome stain! Unfortunately the formula was just too horrible to deal with.
Not a fan. Somehow this lipstick, which looks quite pretty in the tube, manages to be both sheer AND drying-- not quite sure how they managed that feat. It emphasizes the lines in your lips creating an unflattering finish. To add to its drawbacks, it tends to change color on, (oxidize?), and becomes a more garish orange. I guess you get what you pay for, (or not, as the case may be).
Very unflattering finish. Personally I found this made my lips look dry and lined. The finish is fairly sheer for a long wear lipstick and even after it dries the lips feel tacky when they press together. I find it wears quite unevenly. The longer I have it on the more it looks patchy and lined. Some of the colours are good but the overall look is very unflattering. Sorry Revlon, you've lost me with some of your latest offerings.
I have this in Finale. And it's my very first red lipstick. It leans towards the warm spectrum of reds. Overall, I think it's a decent lipstick but there are better ones out there. It is the 2nd most drying lipstick I have in my lot.
Pigmentation wise, I have to build 2 layers to get the full opaque red but I don't mind this because I'm not that courageous yet to wear red lipsticks out. (Especially since I still have school)
Finish: It applies on with a creme finish, but dries down to a matte finish. And I noticed that it will become a little sticky/tacky after the drydown. (Maybe because of its longwearing properties)
I'm not overly impressed with the finish, but I'm glad to have it in my stash because it's so longwearing and gloss is my solution to fix the stickiness and makes it less drying too.
Funny, I adore this product! It seems you love it or hate it. I'm a huge lip product junkie and don't mind splurging on good quality stuff if it's worth it. I have a big problem with lasting power, though, and find most long-wear claims don't hold up. This is an anomaly and it beats pricier products like Dior, Armani and Lancome for me. It's what I wished Estee Lauder Double Wear lipstick or MAC Pro Longwear would be. It's a bizarre, unnoticeable texture when I put it on lightly- almost exactly like my lips, but slightly more moisturized. It never collects in creases, never fades unevenly and stains my lips ALL day. Most stains last about an hour or less. It's the ultimate busy workday product- put it on and forget about it all day. I have Supermodel, a subtle mauvey-purple and Backstage, a reddish berry. In comparison to something like Bite's High Pigment Pencil, it deposits much less product, can be layered better for intensity and almost dyes your lips for hours instead of the pigment being in the substance (if that makes sense). I love this and will investigate more shades!
I absolutely love this product and I am on the lookout to purchase more from this collection.
"I have grown to love not only the colour , but the texture and the last power - Having to find all of these traits in a lipstick is truly rare, especially within a drugstore product. This has definitely made it into my holy grail lipsticks from the drugstore and rest assure that this might not be the only colour I purchase! " - Taken from our blog
The lasting powder is beyond amazing ( proof over on our blog w/ images)
I really love the colors and the ease of application. The one thing that I donít like about this is that it is very drying. My lips are not chapped and not dry, BUT this made my lips look horrible. I tried it sooo many times because I really wanted to like it but no matter what I do, I still end up with unflaterring dry lips. I exfoliated, used vaseline on my lips every night and applied the lipstick over a light coat of lip balm and STILL didnít work. It is now in my drawer collecting dust.
I had high hopes for this lipstick..especially at $32 NZD.. I read sooo many good reviews and decided to get this instead of the lipstains.. boy was I wrong.
I got the hot pink "seduce" colour. I thought that as it was a darker colour, it would last longer. No.
I have tried it for a few weeks and it continually just flakes off my lips.
I will put my lippy on in the morning before work at around 7am. By the time I arrive at work, have some cereal for breakfast, bits of lipstick were floating in my left over milk. I look at myself after I eat and half of the lippy is gone! This is after less than 2hrs wear on a supposedly FOOD PROOF lipstick!!!
I reapply at this point and looks ok again for a while but lips go extremely dry and doesnt last longer than another 2hrs.
Super disappointed, especially because it was so expensive :( Maybe its just the shade I bought? I have no idea.
I loved the revlon colourstay soft & smooth lipsticks that they discontinued. I still have one of those in a light pink shade, and it lasts on my lips longer than this even though this is dark!
Sad. Wish I could get a refund. continued >>
Purchased shades Silhouette and Couture.
I really love that this lipstick did not dry out or chap my lips. This lipstick did do is kept my lips hydrated, and the color lasted for hours.
Definitely will purchase more shades.
I was not impressed with this lipstick. I was very excited to buy it, as the ad for it said that it was food proof and very moisturizing, and also matte; turns out, it's terrible!
First of all, the pigmentation isn't too great. It's okay, not really the best. I'd give it a 6/10.
Secondly, the consistency of the lipstick SUCKS. It does not spread well, and does not absorb into your lips AT ALL. It just sit's there! I tried applying it about 4 times and it still did not cover every inch of my lips, as it should have. It barley even looked like I was wearing anything.
On the plus side, it didn't dry out my lips nor did it feel waxy or heavy. Overall, don't buy it. It's way too exaggerated and really not that great. I personally recommend the Clinique chubby sticks.
