It took me about four months and hundreds of visits to the drugstore to find this product. Well, this shade to be exact. My housemate wore it all summer long, and apparently the rest of London did too, because it was sold out EVERYWHERE. In stores, online… you get the idea. I still can’t believe I managed to finally score it a couple of weeks ago! But don’t ask me where. I took the last one. Sorry!
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors have been around for quite a while now, but me being on a bit of a spending ban these past two years, I tried not to pay attention to them or any other product for that matter. I actually forbade myself to buy new makeup unless I either run out of an essential or really, really like something. And that’s what happened with this beautiful number.
The shade I fell in love with and have been wearing non-stop for the past month is called Seduction. It’s the perfect nude shade that goes with any makeup look. It’s creamy, but dries matte, and is extremely comfortable to wear. It doesn’t last all day, so re-applications are needed, but it lasts long enough and doesn’t apply unevenly even if you put on several coats, which is a huge plus in my book.
Lastly, I have to say a few words about the packaging. Isn’t it gorgeous? A sleek, glass-looking tube you can see the shade through and a doe-foot applicator that is actually great. It really lets you be precise, which I guess is especially handy when it comes to darker shades. One thing to note if you have a sensitive nose, though. The product is quite strongly scented. Think vanilla and something else thrown into the mix…
