Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Addiction


Fall is upon us! The “official” start of fall is in two days, so I wanted to share the perfect way to celebrate…this new Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Addictionrevlon-ultra-hd-matte-lipcolor-addiction-2

If you’ve been following any fall fashion trends, you know that berry is going to be big this year. Addiction is the perfect shade of berry to accompany all of your new berry scarves, sweaters, and stilettos! While it appears a brighter pink in several of these shots, it’s actually a rich, bold berry color in person! revlon-ultra-hd-matte-lipcolor-addiction-3-5

I have shared my love for Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors in the past (Kisses, Temptation, Love), and our relationship has just grown stronger with the addition of Addictionrevlon-ultra-hd-matte-lipcolor-addiction-3

The formula is still a moisturizing, velvety matte, that will be comfortable for hours of wear. Even though this line is described as matte, I’d say it’s almost a demi matte. Can lip products be demi matte? All I mean by that is that it never really sets down completely on its own. If you blot it, it will become matte, but otherwise it will transfer.revlon-ultra-hd-matte-lipcolor-addiction-4

Addiction is heavily pigmented, so it doesn’t come off as patchy at all. It only takes one or two swipes for me to cover all of my lips with the smooth lipcolor.

The applicator is still a classic flocked doe foot, which allows for easy application. If possible, I wish the applicator was slightly smaller for more control, but as a whole, I can’t complain. It picks up and deposits just the right amount of product.revlon-ultra-hd-matte-lipcolor-addiction-5

These revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors are fabulously long-wearing. I get roughly six to eight hours of wear-time before I need to reapply (even when I eat!), which is perfect if you plan to wear these to work.revlon-ultra-hd-matte-lipcolor-addiction-6

I love that I can swipe Addiction on after breakfast in the morning and not worry about my lipcolor all day long. I plan to wear it throughout fall because I think it’s a perfect compliment to any fall color! That said, I’ll probably wear it year-round. It’s a gorgeous color!

You can purchase Revlon at most drugstores, grocery stores, and big box retailers, so snatch up this perfect fall color on your next trip to the store! You won’t be disappointed!

Beauty Blurbs: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Mischievous


Recently Ulta had all of their Revlon cosmetics 40% off, and I wanted to seize the opportunity to acquire more of my beloved Revlon lip products! There are a few colors I’ve had my eye on, but the only one they had in the store was Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Mischievous*.


Mischievous is a light orange matte balm. I’ve reviewed other Revlon matte balms in the past, but I always forget to mention that they have slight minty scent. It’s not overpowering, and I really like it.


I love the tone of Mischievous. It is just enough color to warm up my lips without being too crazy. I think it’s a great shade for spring and summer that would go with several skin tones and makeup looks.


The one BIG problem I had with Mischievous was that it seriously sunk into the crevices in my lips. It doesn’t look too terrible in the pictures, but it was pretty rough in person. I tried exfoliating my lips, applying some regular lip balm before the matte balm, and layering the product, but nothing seemed to help. I’m thinking Mischievous is a different formula than Standout and Sultry because both of those shades glide onto and coat my lips easily.

4The application bothered me so much I decided to return Mischievous to Ulta (shoutout for their awesome return policy). I knew that I wouldn’t get enough use out of it to justify keeping it. Based on other reviews I’ve read, it seems like results of this lip color are mixed. Some encounter the same problem I did and some don’t. If you’re looking for a light, pretty color for spring, I would pick it up to try yourself…just make sure you buy it somewhere it can be returned just in case!

*Up until I purchased this lip product, I was pronouncing mischievous as “mis-chee-vee-us.” As I was blogging, I realized that pronunciation didn’t really make sense with the spelling. After some research, I learned that the correct pronunciation is actually “mis-chuh-vuhs”, which I’ve heard but never used. Apparently, this mispronunciation has been around since the 1500s though, so I’m not the first one to mess up. Here’s an article on the Oxford Dictionaries blog if you’re a nerd like me, and you want to read more about it. 🙂
