Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor in Always Sienna


Fall is upon us, which means it’s the perfect time of year for warm, neutral lip products! I mean, I suppose they’re perfect year round, but they feel especially appropriate this season! revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-1

The Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor in Always Sienna is the perfect fall shade. It’s a warm, mauve shade with slight brown tones.

The Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolors are dual ended lip products that include the lipcolor on one end and a clear gloss on the other. The lipcolor has a doefoot applicator, and the lipgloss has a brush applicator. revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-3

According to the directions, you’re supposed to apply the lipcolor first, wait for it to dry, and then apply the gloss on top. In theory, you shouldn’t need to apply the color again, but you can add more gloss as needed.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-4

I applied the lipcolor first (as instructed), and I hated the texture! It felt so sticky and tight on my lips, so I assumed I would hate it regardless. However, once it dried, I applied the gloss on top, and it made a world of difference! With the gloss layered over the lipcolor, it adds moisture back into your lips, and takes away any feelings of discomfort the lipcolor causes. Apparently the gloss contains chamomile and soy extract to help moisturize the lips.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-5

I’m normally not a gloss person. I love how it looks, but I hate how my hair gets in it and, inevitably, smears it across my face. That is definitely just a personal preference though, and has nothing to do with the quality of the product. 🙂 Also, the gloss eventually wears off with this product, leaving you with just a non-sticky beautiful lip color.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-6

I love the shade of Always Sienna, and I was AMAZED at the staying power! Revlon claims the product can stay on up to 16 hours, and I’d believe it. It stayed put on me through eating and drinking for at least 12 hours. It isn’t transfer proof, but the color was still totally visible after all that time.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-7

The gloss wore off quicker than the color, but even when it wore off, the moisturizing components helped my lips feel comfortable. I chose not to reapply the gloss because I preferred the demi-matte look of the lipcolor without having to deal with my hair getting stuck to my lips. 🙂revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-8

During that time I didn’t notice any feathering or bleeding, which was impressive. Glosses usually slip and slide around my lips and always bleed. Perhaps since the lipcolor sets first, it helps prevent feathering. revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-9

Overall the formula is very unique, and I’m pleased with the color payoff and wear time. If you have extremely dry lips, you may want to avoid this product. I think the lipcolor setting down may bother you too much, but otherwise give this product a try. They have almost 30 colors to choose from, so there’s something for everyone!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Kisses


Hey party people! Great news! Remember the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors I loved in Temptation and Love? Well, Revlon released more colors, and they’re beautiful!


I snagged their new color, Kisses, recently, and it’s so great. It’s a mauve color that I think would be flattering with any skin tone.  2

I reviewed these lipcolors in detail before, and everything I said then still stands. They are described as a “velvety matte,” which is totally accurate. It glides on so smoothly and sets pretty quickly.3

The pigmentation is amazing, so I think it would pop regardless of your natural lip tone. The smell is very unique for a lip product. It’s sort of a vanilla fruit smell, but it goes away once the product dries.

The wear time is also incredible. These lipcolors last on me through eating, drinking, and the crazy Texas summer heat. I love being able to apply it once and forget about it the rest of the day. It’s also convenient because it doesn’t bleed.

Kisses has quickly become my favorite everyday shade, and I think it will work great year-round. I’m so excited Revlon decided to extend the color range of this product, and I plan on getting more shades soon!6If you haven’t tried these yet and are looking for a long-wearing, inexpensive, beautifully colored lip product, what are you waiting for? I love Kisses as much as every other Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor I’ve tried, and I think you will, too! Have you tried any of the new shades? Which color should I get next??

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Temptation

If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know of my love for Revlon lip products. They recently released a new formula…the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors. I’ve been wanting to acquire some for awhile to try them out, and lo and behold, they were on sale at Target last weekend! Hallelujah!

Revlon Temptation 0

The color I bought is Temptation. It’s a bright mauve-pink. According to Revlon, “Ultra HD Matte Lip Color is a lightweight, high definition, matte color with a moisturizing velvety feel.” I’m not really sure how a lip color can be “HD,” but that seems to be a big buzzword in makeup right now…wonder what technological words they’ll use in makeup next? And what does that make my “non-HD” lipsticks? Standard?

Revlon Temptation 1

Regardless, I like this lipcolor! I’m torn whether to call it a lipgloss or a lipstick, because it applies like a gloss. However, it wears more like a lipstick. Hence the name lipcolor, perhaps? It has a plush applicator that allows for relatively easy application. I love the matte packaging, but it does affect the color appearance. For example, this color looked much less vibrant in the tube than it actually is. Just be aware and look up swatches online before you purchase it. Revlon also has examples of women of various skin tones modeling each color on their website.

Revlon Temptation 2

I felt like the color sunk into the crevices in my lips a little when I applied it, but it wasn’t too drastic and lessened with wear. I also think this wouldn’t be an issue with a darker color. Lighter toned lip products often have this issue, I’ve noticed.

Revlon Temptation 3

Like I said, this product applies like a gloss, and while it claims to be matte, mine didn’t really ever set until waaaaaay later. It is definitely not extremely shiny, but don’t expect it to set like a matte right away. If you blot it, I think it will look matte much faster, but I chose not to.

Revlon Temptation 4

I was pleased with the wear time. As you can see below, a lot of color was still there after 5 hours (and those hours included eating a turkey wrap and drinking from a water bottle!). There is a slight lipliner effect going on, but overall, I’m pleased with how much of the product/stain remained…especially since it doesn’t claim to be long wearing.

Revlon Temptation 5

Another good note is that it didn’t seem as drying as other matte products I own. If mattes tend to dry out your lips or you think your lips are too dry to wear matte products, this may be a perfect option for you. I’m not sure I would go as far to say that it is “velvety” or “moisturizing” (which it claims), but it’s definitely not drying.

Revlon Temptation 6

Another thing I wanted to point out is the smell. It’s a pretty strong vanilla scent similar to Lip Smackers Vanilla Frosting circa 1999. If you’re sensitive to smells and flavors for lip products you may want to steer clear. The smell goes away pretty quickly after application, thankfully.

Revlon Temptation 7

Overall, I’m pleased with Revlon’s Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor, and I think I may purchase a few more of the eight available shades. If you try any out or have another color recommendation, let me know!
