Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor ($9.99) are a new Spring 2017 slim line lipstick available in 15 vibrant shades that will be part of the Revlon permanent collection of HD lip products. I always find slimline lipsticks terribly appealing and even though I really don’t love the Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick formula I decided to give these new Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor Lipsticks a try!
Here’s some thoughts.
Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor Lipstick are a slimline lipstick that comes housed in a metallic barrel which holds 0.17 oz of product. I think packaging is quite fun and pretty! For some reason I find slim lipsticks like this terribly appealing. The precise, smaller slanted points always seem apply so much easier than a full-size lipstick.
I think the Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor formula is also a considerable improvement over the heavier, silicone-like texture of the original Ultra HD Lipstick. I felt like the Ultra HD Lipstick was a bit heavy and although creamy with an easy glide I didn’t particularly like how they felt on my lips. The Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor is creamy but has more slip with a slicker texture that glides on smoothly and evenly leaving behind tons of color but also a nice hint of shine too. The texture is lightly moisturizing, comfortable to wear, and lacks the odd waxy silicone consistency that I associate with the original Ultra UD Lipstick formula. I’m also quite a fan of the nice hint of shine these have. I didn’t have issues with the color feather or migrating and it wore nicely for four hours while keeping my lips pleasantly moist. The comfort of wear is considerably nicer than the original HD Lipsticks as this formula not only feels moist but also lightweight and not as thick. Sadly, the HD Gel Lipcolor falls victim to being highly fragranced and flavored with a fruity, perfume taste. I didn’t feel the flavor was bitter though and not as strong as the HD Lipstick cherry cough syrup flavor but regardless, for sensitive users, this might be a big fail.
The flavor might be an issue for some but all and all the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor is delightful! It’s pigmented, applies easily, has a slick, lightweight texture, and kept my lips pleasantly moist through the wear. I can see myself purchasing more of these delightful lipsticks.
Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor is launching now at drugstores and should be available at Ulta.com soon.
