Last week Revlon launched their much-anticipated Ultra HD lip products. We’ve had these for about two weeks now, and are already obsessed.
Before we get onto the different products, let’s have a chat about the packaging. It’s phenomenally chic and modern. Revlon have had a turn around in recent years with their packaging. Gone is the boring black and gold on absolutely everything; our eyes are now treated to slick silver tops and crystalline tubes.
There are two collections: one lipstick and the other lacquer. Both are have Revlon’s special high-definition gel at the base of their formulas. This means that you get maximum colour payoff, without the need for heavy, sticky waxes. Nice.
The Ultra HD Lip Lacquers are great; so shiny you can see you face in them. The formula isn’t sticky, yet still lasts hours – pretty impressive for a lacquer. It’s a gloss/lipstick hybrid that really does deliver the best of both worlds. There are 8 permanent and 7 limited edition shades to choose from.
The Ultra HD Lipsticks are just in a league of their own. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a lipstick that delivers colour like this in just one sweep. The bullets are substantial, making application a breeze. The formula is luscious and velvety, and because the formula is so lightweight, you can get away with super bright hues on less than perfect condition lips. There are 10 permanent and 10 limited edition shades available.
The Ultra HD Lipsticks and Ultra HD Lip Lacquers both hit shelves this week at leading pharmacies and mass retailers nationwide for R145 each.
