Revlon colorstay ultimate suede lipstick Cruise Collection  (3)Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick In Cruise Collection: Swatches & Review 

Guest Review By Lucky

Long lasting color is the buzz word in beauty now, and every makeup brand is coming up with new lip colors which claim to last all day.  I hate touch ups ,  so after the Maybelline 14hr lip colors when Revlon came up with these ultimate suede lipsticks I jumped on the chance to buy one. Out of the 20 shades available I bought the one called ‘ Cruise Collection’ .

Product  Claims:

  • Instant Moisture
  • All-day Color
  •  Shea butter, Aloe
  •  Soft suede finish
  •  Available in 20 shades

My Views on Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick In Cruise Collection:

When I went to Revlon counter and saw the shades available I liked quite a few of them but bought only one to check the formula first. I bought Cruise Collection which is a warm toned peach with fine golden shimmer in it, which is not prominent or frosty looking. It has average Pigmentation, a single swipe gives sheer coverage but multiple swipes give much higher pigmentation and opacity. This shade is a very appropriate for summer. And will suit medium to fair skin tones very well.

The texture of these Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks  is very creamy. They glide on easily on bare lips. Within a minute they dry   and turn to a matt finish. That time it can feel a bit drying on the  lips but that’s how most long lasting lip colors are. It has awesome staying power of more than 10 -12 hours and one needs to use oil based cleansers to clean this completely. Sometimes after a heavy meal it gets little patchy so I use some lip balm so that it can even out shade. I also like the packaging of this lip color.

Pros of Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick Cruise Collection:

  • Summary orange shade, with pink undertone.
  • Very fine shimmer, works well for office wear also.
  • Very long lasting.
  • Glides effortlessly on lips.
  • Good pigmentation.
  • Does not bleed.
  • Shade shown on packaging so easy to locate.
  • Feels light on lips.

Cons of Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick Cruise Collection:

  • Turns patchy after meal.
  • Oil based remover is required to clean this.
  • Won’t look good on chapped dried lips
  • Is a bit drying

Rating: B+

Price: INR 650

Recommendation: If you are looking for a very solid long lasting lipstick then Revlon Ultimate Suede Lipstick wont dissapoint.  However the long lasting-ness does come at the price of moisture and to an extent texture so if those are more important then look elsewhere. Cruise Collection is a beautiful peachy orange with shimmer that glides beautifully and turns to a matte finish.

Editors Note: Im not a fan of these personally!

They look nice, but I don’t like how they’re kind of drying on the lips, since I sometimes have problems with chapped lips.
