This lipstick is awful! I bought it for a dance I was in and it was so dry. Also, after about an hour it started flaking like crazy. Though the colors are pretty, the formula is horrible.

I got this in 30, a beautiful vivid pink that matches my favorite blush, Boots` No.7 Ballerina, spot on. I`ve tried every possible way to wear this lovely shade: with balm underneath, on top, with/without gloss, but either way it dried up my lips horribly, and this was in summer when the humidity where I live is like 80% (the laundry is never really dry, unless you use an electric dryer). Now it just sits uselessly in my drawer. The packaging is also less than impressive, no matter how careful I am, product somehow smears all over the cap.

I got this in fashionista. It's a nice tone down red ideal for daytime everyday wear. I love the color and that's about it. The texture nice when you first put it on and then it begins to suck out moisture from your lips every second after that. If I use a lip balm underneath, it doesn't stay put and kiss off on everything that touches your lips. I paid $10 for this at the drugstore and I am not going to buy again. It's quite expensive for being so comfortable to wear. Again, I love the color.

So DRY!! Beautiful color, I got Fashionista, a really nice red. When you first put it on, wow, feels like a dream and goes on with a clean line at the top of your lips, but 15 min later and whoa...super dry. I exfoliated my lips this morning and still. Packaging is cheap, but I do like the way the tube "clicks" in small increments rather than the entire piece of lipstick coming up. I guess the only thing I like is the price and the color. Will be returning.

I have two of these lipsticks--Supermodel and Flashing Lights. Flashing Lights is kind of a nudey peach, mostly matte. Supermodel is my favorite. Its a mauve just a tiny bit darker than my lips. Wonderful to keep in my purse to throw on. it looks very natural on me. I agree these lipsticks are drying. I like to let it set for a few minutes right after I put it on, and then put a small amount of gloss over the top. The lasting power if quite good. The color of the packaging coincides with the color of the lipstick which helps telling the lipsticks apart.

Revlon is probably my favorite drugstore brand for lip products. When I would like a more long wearing lipstick, this is one that I reach for.

I bought this in Iconic (055) - it's a beautiful natural color. By far this is my favorite color of lipstick, however, other reviewers are right - this drys a bit quick. I put a lip balm before applying it.

The colors are really gorgeous, but they apply ridiculously patchy, no matter how well I've exfoliated. If I have lip balm on my lips, it won't apply evenly, and if I don't, it will apply evenly until I purse my lips or talk, at which point it starts clumping. Worse, I found the texture to be tacky, it doesn't dry the way lipstick normally does.

I love Revlon's lip products usually, but these were very disappointing.

just first off let me say if you like relvon ultimate stay liquid lip color you will like this, otherwise you probably won't like this lipstick. I did some research before buying cosmetics because I dislike when product does not live up to hype. I bought in color trendsetter, which is a very bright opaque red with pink undertones. I found that several claims from a beauty guru on YouTube was true about the color stay ultimate suede lipstick. After thirty minutes of applying this to clean dry lips it sets like second skin and becomes slightly tacky, not as bad as relvon ultimate stay liquid lipstick( that one your lips literally glued together if you press your lips together!). The second claim I found was true was it will stay on through a meal, if it is light and non-greasy, thirdly it will stay on while you sip on drink. What I found out was that it wears off kind of like outlast 24hrs by covergirl. What mean by that it wears off in center of your mouth, so that after awhile it looks like your wearing lip liner!This lip product is very drying; I do not suggest this lipstick if you have chronic dry lips. Overall I do like this product and would buy it again, because it last a good 4-5 hrs on me.
update: I've found that this stays tacky through out the day, if wears off you can't reapply it on the lip color remains on lips or it will ball up. This product needs clean dry lips to adhere to. How I keep this from going into fine lines in my lips is I use a lip plumper like too faced lip injection and let that plump my lips for awhile, then I completely wipe it off then apply this lipstick. I find that lip plumper plumps up the fine lines long enough that when this lipstick sets it won't go into the lines of my lips.

Not the most comfortable lipstick I've ever worn, but I've kept these in my regular rotation since they first came out. They're the most reliably long wearing lipstick (not counting lip stains!) I've tried. On me, they wear a good 7-8 hours and look pretty fresh most of the work day even through light snacking and drinking through a straw. None of the shades I use (Supermodel- a dusty mauve, Muse- bright fuschia, and Backstage- a deep raspberry) gather in my lip lines at all, and the color fades pretty evenly.

The product goes on surprisingly smooth and creamy, feeling very plush and comfortable at first. Unfortunately, that only lasts for maybe 20 minutes before the texture of the lipstick completely changes. It dries out and becomes tacky to the touch in a pretty unpleasant way. It's not so bad that it's turned me off from using them, but this is definitely not a lipstick I reach for on days when my lips are parched. If dry lips are a chronic problem for you, skip this lipstick.

Well, first of all, this is my first review as I usually just read reviews before bying some product. I had to log on just to write my opinion as reading this I could not stop wondering how is it possible that my niece and I think that this is the best lipstick product I ever purchased when used with one coat of labello clasic. I have very dry, very pale (they tend to be almost white), very sensitive lips. When I apply ths and one coat of labello I get the best MLBB feeling on my lips which last and last for hours without feeling to heavy or drying at all. Without labello it is drying a little bit after some time but I still find this product GREAT. Lips looks so natural!

UPDATE: I must admit that after some I used it every day for more then a month my lips started to be very dry. I've also noticed that if I put just a thin layer of colour on lips it looks good but more product on lips dries them very quickly. Unfortunately, I am not such a big fun anymore.
