Trying On – Revlon Metallic Mattes

I have been out of high school for a hot minute, more on this later. I was trying to watch Riverdale yesterday (for about the 5th time) and I couldn’t get into it. I grew up on the comic books and while there are themes that were worked in, most of it is just totally bizarre. I sincerely hope that this is not what high school is like in 2017, that would be terrifying. Although, I am into Cheryl Blossom’s vibe – it makes me want to grow my hair out.


Metallic lips are hot right now, I could be making that up but I keep seeing metallic lips products everywhere so it could be accurate. I love the Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors by Revlon for all day, my lips but better lip colour. They really aren’t super matte or long lasting but they are easy to wear, they come in an array of shades and they are affordable. The sleek packaging is unique and feels more high-end than it is and the odd shaped applicator is perfect – I wish that more brands used this design. When I saw their new Ultra HD Metallic Lip Colors, I knew that I had to try them. There are 8 shades in total and they retail at roughly $9 depending on where you buy them. I picked up 4 of the neutral shades; they had a pretty purple, blue and grey but I wouldn’t wear those shades so I skipped on them. These lippies have the same cake scent as the regular mattes and same overall consistency which I feel is a little gritty but lightweight and surprisingly comfortable. Again, these aren’t going to be super pigmented or opaque but they layer fairly well and it isn’t difficult to build the product up. These are very shiny with a lovely luster and impart that, your lips but better look. These won’t dry down super matte nor do they last very long but I still love these lippies. I think it’s just due to the fact that they are so easy to wear. If you want a metallic lip colour that is super matte and long wearing then I would recommend Lime Crime but these are easy to wear, low-maintenance, everyday lip colours and I am a fan. Also, I don’t know why but I love the look of these sleek tubes – the frosted plastic, the streamlined appearance, I just enjoy it.

Flare, Glam, Gleam, Glow



I love these lippies, I actually like them for all of the reasons that others don’t so fair warning 🙂 I think there are 16 shades of the matte HD and I hope that they add to the metallic line as well.


Thanks for stopping by <3
