Review: Revlon's Ultra HD Lipsticks

IMG_5128 IMG_5129 IMG_5130

I'm a massive Revlon lipstick fan. Their Lip Butters are my every day go to lipsticks with their amazing colour pay off and super hydrating formula. So when I saw they'd brought out their new range of Ultra HD lipsticks I knew I had to give them a try. 

Colour wise I was really impressed. The range has all the usual colours you'd expect like the bright reds and fascia pinks but there's something a little bit different; the shades all seem very fresh and almost pastel like. I really love it! I decided to go for Peony (left), Rose (middle) and Hibiscus (right). I figured they were pretty wearable shades especially Rose which is a gorgeous "better than your natural lip colour" shade. It's also worth mentioning that all the lipsticks in the range have quite a strong fruity smell. I personally love the scent however if strongly scented lip products aren't your thing then maybe steer clear of these!

Wear time is OK. Nothing amazing. To be honest though I'm not overly bothered; I like a lipstick to either stay put all day or wear off. I hate that in between when the middle wears off and you're just left with a line on the outside. So frustrating! What these lipsticks lack in wear time they certainly make up for it in hydration though; my lips actually feel so soft even after the colour has worn off. Very impressive!

Overall I'm super impressed; I love the colour range and the formulation. However there's one thing that's confusing me slightly.. The range is very similar to the Lip Butters. I can't help but notice they've slightly improved on the formulation but kept the same basic finish; a sheer, hydrating, relatively pigmented lipstick. Don't get me wrong, I love that combo I'm just not too sure why they've  reinvented something that already exists and re named it something else? 

Have any of you tried Revlon's new HD Lipstick range? If so what do you think?

Lots of Love,
