Revlon Selects Review: Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Backstage

Hi all!

Something a little different today.  If you remember a few posts back I mentioned I was one of 500 chosen to review some of Revlon's new products.   So today I decided to tackle the lipstick review.  Now, I'm not one to usually review makeup, since I don't wear a whole lot of it and what I do wear is nothing super fancy.  That being said I have a serious love for lipsticks, but still typically stick to drug store brand so I can't compare anything to higher end products.

The Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede lipsticks come in 20 different shades.  Application was super easy, it almost felt like I was just putting lipbalm on my lips, it was smooth and shiny.  After a few minutes it kind of just settled on the lips, the glossy look disappeared and you were left with an almost but not quite matte look.

I love it!  And the wear is really good too, I put this on the instant the package arrived, ate dinner, drank some water then a few hours later got ready for bed and had to scrub it off using a sugar scrub.

I have read that some people find this product sticky, but I didn't find it sticky at all.

These are available now, I've spotted them at Wal Mart and local drug stores.

Have any of you tried the ColorStay Ultimate Suede lippies?  What were your thoughts?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Oh wow... This looks like my kinda lip! Fab xx

  2. I have this shade and I LOVE it! It's long wearing, not dry and looks amazing on. I tried a lighter color though, and thought it was a bit more drying than Backstage.

    Glad you're enjoying it!

  3. Gorgeous colour!! :D I can never wear lip products like this since my lips dry out super fast (sad face), but I bet it looks awesome on you!

  4. This sounds really great and long wearing, too! It's always nice to see that drugstore products have good quality too. :)

  5. Ooh I was curious about these! This shade looks lovely!
