Here’s a quick review on the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Iconic* which I got in a BDJ Box a few months ago. It’s a really pretty corally pink with a smattering of gold shimmers. It reminds me a lot of NARS Orgasm.
The color glides on smoothly, and I didn’t notice any clinging to dry patches or sinking into fine lines. As is typical of the ColorStay formulas, this dries down to a somewhat tacky finish, which is what I would say I didn’t like about this formula. However, this makes it long-wearing. It’s also a little bit tricky because it doesn’t wear off evenly.
I wouldn’t purchase another lipstick from this line, based on the formula and also because Revlon is not cruelty-free. Still, it’s definitely the kind of pink that I like, so I’ll be holding on to it.
In other news, my face is as big as the moon. :0 What is going on! (JK, I know exactly. I gained some weight and it’s showing in my face, huuuu.)
* This was part of a subscription box sent to me for editorial consideration. I was not compensated for nor required to write a review. Revlon is not cruelty-free.
Carina, you look lovely still, moon-faced or not. ColorStay sounds a lot better than the Super Lustrous range then if it doesnt settle into fine lines. Poor Super lustrous lippies lose their luster as soon as they hit my lips
Lol! That doesn’t sound super lustrous at all! Also, thank you so much. 🙂
Too bad about the formula, because the color is really pretty!
Yes, it’s a shame. 😦
Girl, contour lang yan. 😀 It’s not obvious, maybe when you smile. Pretty still!
Lol I haven’t found a good contour shade yet, I think. Like the best one for me.
This is such a pretty colour. Too bad about the uneven wear.
Yes, too bad. 😦
Hi! Just wanted to say that I love reading your blog. 🙂
Anyway, you don’t look fat. You’re still beautiful!
Aw, thank you Jean Monique! Haha I was being dramatic, though I really need to live healthier!
Very nice color 🙂 Perfect for everyday use!
I like the color but I hate lipsticks with tacky/sticky feel to it. That’s the reason why I only started using lipgloss.
Oh, were they your first lipsticks? That sucks. 😦
Ngek you don’t look any rounder than before! I do love the glow you have in these photos.
Thank you Eula, you’re too kind. 🙂
