I had a lot of spare time during my uni break - so why don't I use my free time constructively and write a review for Primped about this new lipstick. Click here if you want to read the post.
However, I had to edit my post due to the 1,000 character limit. Here's my unedited version:
I couldn’t wait to get my little fingers on Revlon’s new Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick. Package-wise, it looks like a lipgloss, so I expected a high sheen gloss. But it’s a lipstick, so there’s no glossiness to it.
The lipstick doesn’t have a smell and I once applied it, it dried within seconds. It was slightly drying, but I found if I applied a lip balm on top of the Colorstay lipstick, I get the glossy feel I like and it gives it extra sheen.
The pigment of this lipstick is rich - so one coat is enough. When I removed it with make up remover, there was still plenty of pigment to take off. Also, the product does live to its claim. It stuck firm through a chicken laksa and a chai latte.
I’ve settled on #1 Nude, as it’s a beautiful taupe shade, with a hint of shy coral pink. It’s versatile and can be worn to work. It’s a great addition to my make up bag for days when I don’t want to go ultra-glossy or to be touching it up meticulously. I salute Revlon for making this great product.
It retails for $24.95 and its found in all leading department stores.
