Discover Your Lip Wardrobe with Revlon

When this lip wardrobe from Revlon arrived, I was shocked to find so many different offerings.  For a high street brand, Revlon has managed to keep themselves competitive and relevant to what is currently quite a busy market.

The Lip Wardrobe has five different offerings inside it which includes Super Lustrous Lipsticks, Ultra HD Gel Lipscolors, Ultra HD metallics Matte Lipcolor and Colorstay Lipliners. Over the past few months, I have been working through my lip wardrobe to see what I do and don't like.

Super Lustrous Lipstick - This is the lipstick you want to make a statement with and is described as being formulated with micro fine pigments for high-impact, bold colour. With shades such as Bombshell Red, Naughty Plum and Bare Affair being just 3 of the shades.

Encased inside a black case, the lid has a see-through top so that you can see which colour is inside, a nice little addition for lipstick hoarders like me who put them into a holder and can never tell which shade is which.  On the lips, they are creamy, satiny and moisturising and really easy to apply and last around 4 hours.

Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor - I was already a fan of these lipcolors and really like the formula which is incredibly hydrating thanks to the inclusion of Hyaluronic Acid.  Almost like wearing a lip balm, these lipcolors are incredibly pigmented and thankfully non-sticky.

Within my Lip Wardrobe I had two shades (there are 15 available) which are Sand and Pink Cloud.  Sand is your peach toned nude, a shade that possibly everyone needs within their lip wardrobe and Pink Cloud which is a little too pink for me to wear but it is still a very pretty shade.

Ultra HD Metallic Matte Lipcolor - Usually the term metallic to me means bright and shiny, but these are Metallic Matte Lipcolors and Revlon describe them as being a lightweight, high definition velvety metallic matte colour. which are Moisturizing with a velvety feel. They are a100% wax-free, gel formula and an apparent favourite of Gwen Stefani.

I have two shades Gleam which is a pinky nude shade and Shine which is a berry shade.  You can wear these on their own or you can pair them up with another lipstick, but what I love is the metallic effect.  It isn't over the top glitter, but there is shine and a bit of sparkle, you will also need a lipliner because they both feather, but I like these two a lot.

Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor - Described as being a lightweight, high definition matte lip colour, this is the sister lipcolour to the Metallic Matte and it is every bit as stunning.  On the lips, it is incredibly moisturising and also has a velvety feel but for me, what lets it down is that you need a lot of layers to get full coverage, otherwise it is just too streaky. The swatch below showing how one swipe isn't enough and in the end, it took 5 swipes to achieve what I would want coverage wise.

Infatuation is a really deep brown-red almost burgundy shade and again it is a 100% wax-free, gel formula.  I really like how comfortable this is to wear and it lasts a good 4-5 hours, leaving a slight stain on the lips as it fades.

Colorstay Lipliner- One item I tend to never think of buying is a lip liner and these Colorstay liners from Revlon are described as being long-wearing, provides definition, helps lip colour last longer and prevents feathering and bleeding.

Available in 6 shades and I have both Nude and Plum.  I really like how soft and smooth the formula is when used it doesn't feel as though it is being dragged across the skin of your lips and I have found they both make a really good base for applying lipstick.


Admittedly this is quite a lipstick wardrobe with everything you might ever need to find and know about from Revlon.  I really am glad there were lip liners included because it does reinforce to me how much of a difference they do make when wearing lipstick, especially a liquid lipstick.  I have become massively impressed with the HD Gel Lip Color and really want to try a few more shades from the range but the one which surprised me the most was the Metallic Matte because I expected to really dislike it and didn't.

If you are encouraged to discover your lipstick wardrobe with Revlon, then right now everything is on offer with Superdrug.
