When it comes to updating your makeup bag for springtime, I know that a lot of people get excited about switching up their lipstick. Of course, being springtime, this season sees the return of the pretty pinks and coral hues. However, it’s not quite time to show your red lip shades the door, as they are bang on trend this year, even for the warmer months. Revlon have a whole host of exciting new lip releases this season and I’m here to show you three ways that you can switch up your lipstick on a budget.
Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Color*
Let’s kick things off with my favourite of the three releases: the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Color. This new products look exciting from the moment they arrive, with their super cool metallic packaging taking center stage. These new lip products have been designed to give you a glossy, vivid colour, without drying out the lips. The formula is packed with pigments and you can see in the swatches below that the colours are glossy and rich. As the name suggests, the base of the Ultra HD Gel Lip Color is gel, which has been infused with hyaluronic acid, for that extra boost of hydration.
I love how glossy and pretty these new products are and the slim line packaging makes them easy to apply and totally handbag friendly! I have the shades HD Tropical 730* (a pretty pink) and HD Lava 750* (a red/coral hue). These retail for £7.99 each, which I think is a total bargain!
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color*
The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color has been part of the Revlon line up for some time, but the collection has just been given an update for 2017. If you’re looking for something that really packs in some pigment, these new shades are the way to go! These products really pack in some high definition pigmentation in a formula that feels velvety and matte on the lips. The formula of these are created with 100% wax-free gel, which means that every coat of colour provides intense colour and lightweight moisturisation. They are even scented with a light scent of creamy mango and whipped vanilla, which is really lovely. There are 12 new shades and I have Obsession* which is a hot pink. The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color retail at £8.99 each and are available now!
Swatched above here, from top to bottom we have the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Obsession, the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Color in HD Lava and the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Color in HD Tropical.
Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lip Color*
The final product I have to show you is the Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lip Color, which is brand new to the Revlon collection. This new product is a double-sided lip product – on one end have an exclusive liquid colour base formula that features Revlon ColorStay technology. On the other side you have the 99% “moisture topcoat” enriched with chamomile and soy extract to keep lips comfortable and shiny. The two together deliver a colour which looks fresh and feels comfortable for up to 12 hours.
These shades are far from matte, in fact they are a lovely shiny colour which is perfect for this time of year. There are 10 different shades in the collection and I have four to share with you. Swatched below, from top to bottom, we have: Non Stop Cherry (010)*, Constantly Coral (020)*, Everlasting Rum (370)* and Always Sienna (380)*. All 10 shades retail for £8.99 each and are available now!
So there we have it, three exciting new releases from Revlon which should have all your bases covered for spring. Whether you’re looking for something matte, something glossy or something that lasts all day long – there really is something for everyone!
