So who has used the amazing ColorStay Ultimate Suede shades from Revlon? My best make-up product discovery for ages!! I have to admit how boring I've been with lip colour up until recently. When I was about sixteen, I fell in love with the 006 Pink Blush lipstick from Rimmel...and pretty much haven't stopped wearing it since. Honestly, Pink Blush has been a best friend for many, many years now - it's been my standard bright lip colour on nights out, and then dimmed down to subtle during the daytime. When you find a lip colour that suits you, kind of like a favourite jumper, it's really hard not to go running to it when in doubt...it's a beautiful shade and I will always love it...but now it's time to branch out.
As I really can't just wear bright pink lipstick for the rest of my life, recently, I've getting a little more adventurous! I definitely can't pledge to be any kind of beauty expert, but I do love to share new finds and the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede is absolutely incredible. I've always been really wary about wearing dark lip colours, like plums or purples, and I've never been able to wear red...mainly because I'm terrified of it smearing around my mouth and looking stupid, and I really struggle to apply it properly (my hands definitely shake a crazy amount). I'm also incredibly lazy, and never, ever manage to leave enough time to do anything (despite all best intentions), so I never get around to carefully pencilling in my lip line...or using a brush. I want something that goes on quickly and LASTS.
This is where the ColorStay is an absolute god send. Do I need to worry about the colour smudging? No. It stays on and lasts...for ages! It's got a wonderful velvety soft texture which glides on effortlessly, its full of colour, but it's not one of those heavy lip colours that have to meet the edges of your lips perfectly, you can smudge this lipstick a little and dab it on as you wish. I first stumbled on the ColorStay purely by chance, I was hunting for a very specific bright purple...and this 'Muse' shade was the only colour that remotely resembled what I wanted...so I tried it! I didn't actually realise it was a lasting lip product, so I was massively impressed when it stayed on through a dinner and evening drinks...no smudging at all!
So then, of course, I went and bought two more shades. The 'Socialite' shade is perfect for work, it's a creamy, subtle pinky shade and lovely to put on for when you need to look your professional best. It's so nice to have your lips looking good at work, but obviously it's not the time to whack out the bright red lipstick! Then the 'Front Row' shade is a much lighter shade of pale pink and is gorgeous, I think pale pink is such a lovely shade and this has just the right amount of colour in to make the lips stand out. Will I be buying more colours? I think so! I just need pay day to hurry along...
