The Beauty Addict Make-up Review: Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

Applying a lip color is an important part of my daily make-up. But ever since I had a baby, I can't resist kissing him so I skip it most of the time because I don't want to leave lip prints on his soft and sensitive cheeks.

Come his Christening day, I want to look a little glammed-up and I can't be without any lipstick :) So I searched for one that will pass my requirements: dries easily, does not leave any lip stains, long-wearing and my type of pink shade. When it comes to staying power, I just know Revlon has something to offer. So that's the first one I tried.

At the Revlon counter, this new product got my attention:

Revlon Ultimate Lipgloss

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

A food-proof lipcolor with a built-in, ultra-conditioning topcoat that promises to last up to 12 hours. That means that it does not feather or fade even after meals.

To Use: Apply a thin, even layer to clean, bare lips and wait until dry.

To Remove: Use any oil-based makeup remover or cleanser.

What I like:

  • It's definitely long wearing. It sometimes exceeds 12 hours on me.
  • Does not leave color when you drink or kiss somebody.
  • Offers a variety of shades.
  • It already gives a little shine so you won't need to top it with a lip gloss.
  • Dries up very easily.
  • One application is enough for the day. I just apply a lipgloss when I want to retouch. Do not reapply the color as it tends to flake when you overdo it.

What I don't like:

  • Most long wearing lip colors like this tend to dry up your lips. It did when I first tried it so I made sure to moisturize my lips first before applying my make-up and save the lipcolor for last. But with constant usage, it doesn't dry my lips anymore even without prepping.
  • The wand can be unhygienic. What I do is I transfer a little on my spatula and use my lip brush to apply.

This has been my on-the-go lipstick for months now and I'm loving it. I'm planning to buy the nude and red next.

What long wearing lipsticks have you tried? Share your experiences please.
