Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color Review

Hey beaut's!

Ever since the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors where released I had been lusting after them and finally I picked one up from Boots a few weeks ago, I know, I know I'm super late to the party but I got there in the end hehe.

The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors (£8.99) are available in seven shades ranging for neutral to brighter pinks and reds, I opted for Devotion a gorgeous neutral rosy pink shade that's super wearable, Devotion is actually one of the lightest pink's in the collection although it still packs an almighty pink punch, it actually reminds me of Mac's Mehr a lot.
The formula of the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Devotion is lovely, it's SUPER pigmented, feels really lightweight on the lips, has a moisturizing feel despite being matte and is very easy to apply because of it's curved, velvety applicator that just hugs the lips. As the name would suggest the finish is matte however.... mine takes a good couple of hours to set matte, yup I did say hours! When I first apply the product it goes on glossy and like I said before it feels lightweight and moisturizing but that matte feeling isn't there at all, and until it has actually set it transfers terribly on cups and glasses when drinking which annoyingly takes some of the product off too. I've actually played around with this a lot to see if I could speed up the setting time and the only successful way I've found so far is by blotting it a lot on a tissue straight after application, this does speed up setting time and im left with a velvety, matte finish that lasts a good 5 hours on me without being drying in anyway. 
Overall I do like the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color but I wouldn't say I love it, I mean it's so comfortable to wear on the lips once it's set and I really love the shade I bought as it's right up my street and so wearable for everyday but I'm a little disappointed about the finish. I expected  it to dry/set after a minute of so like most liquid lip products and the fact it doesn't has put me off trying any of the other shades within the collection, when I get a product like this I really don't want to have to faff around blotting etc, it's such a shame as I was really excited for these.

Have you tried any of the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors? What did you think? I'd love to know!

  2. Ahh that is a shame.. I'm not too keen on glosses so not sure I'd like this if it doesn't set immediately. But I do love the shade! xx

  5. I surprisingly have like a little love hate relationship with this product too. As someone with such dry skin, matte tends to look really flat on me and actually look quite bad and drying whereas these are moisturizing, but they are advertised as being matte? Therefore for someone who actually likes a matte liquid lipstick it can be totally disappointing! xx

  6. I've been wanting to try these products for a while, I mean the colours (especially this one) look so gorgeous, but I only ever wear matte lip products as I hate gloss so now I'm unsure x

  7. I'm a sucker when it comes to liquid lipsticks! The Gerard cosmetic hydra matte collection are my favourite & ive been meaning to try the new revlon ones since they were released but the whole "taking a few hour to dry" thing does put me off!

  9. I have the same shade and I forgot it was even meant to be matte! I wear mine a lot but not with the intention of it being matte anymore, I just like the colour and like you said, the pigment and texture are really good! X

  10. I love the shade and the packaging! It's such a shame about the transfer, the blotting, the gloss and the setting time because I would have loved to have this product in my collection. I think I'll probably give it a miss now :/
