Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede - shade 085 Trendsetter

Hey everyone,

I recently bought a lipstick from  Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede . The collection was launched last year in 20 beautiful shades. I bought a shade -Trendsetter (085) from this collection.

2.55 gm available for Rs. 715/- . Revlon recently hiked its prices from Rs. 650 to Rs. 715/-.

What does Revlon says about the product 

  • One step , ultra comfortable wear with all-day color
  • Dries to be a beautiful suede finish
  • Instantly moisturising using a combination of Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Aloe
  • Apply evenly for full, creamy color coverage. Lips feel smooth, conditioned and comfortable
  • Does not feather or bleed. 

My take on the product 
The Trendsetter shade (085) from Revlon Colorstay Utlimate Suede collection is a lovely rich raspberry color which indeed feels very lightweight on the lips. The lipstick comes in a transparent packaging with the transparent plastic cap . Packaging is of a good quality , sturdy and travel friendly. 

The color remains untouched even after 4-5 hours and does not feather or bleed. The texture is creamy, light weight and mattified however in my opinion does not moisturize the lips. The color is rich raspberry which looks very lovely on the face and with some clear top gloss is perfect for the night look. The lipstick glides smoothly on the lips. But the one thing I didn't like about is that it cannot be used directly on the lips as the tapered top of the lipstick does not hug the lips well and you are always left with some mismatch shape which need to be corrected  later. The only way to wear it perfectly is to apply it using a brush and a lip liner. 

The color indeed stays for a long long time on your lips without being faded or stained. It does not dry out the lips but may look chapped on the dry lips since the creaminess of the lipstick is lost after few minutes. It easily survives the light snack and the color stays even after a full meal. Therefore it is perfect for the girls who have longer durations to survive without any access to touchups or finishing. 

I don't understand why Revlon comes out with such pricey products. When launched, the lipstick was priced at Rs. 650/- which was anyway on the expensive side and now they have increase the prices to Rs. 715/- a piece which is tad much for owing more from this collection. But then for the girlies who are always packed with the hectic schedules, it's a really good lipstick. And the shades are really lovely.

The Trendsetter shade is the beautiful raspberry shade and will flatter all the skin tones. The lipstick remains for a good period of time and feels very lightweight on the lips. However the texture may not suit the dry chapped lips as the moisturizing content is low. Its on a pricey side but a worth buy for its beautiful shades and long stay. 

My rating on this product : 4/5
