Review: Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Backstage 035


(Yup, wearing no makeup other than lipstick and a little concealer around lips so the color has a nice base. Wasn't completely hating on my skin this morning.)

Brand: Revlon

Collection: Fall 2012 - Ultimate Suede 

Color/Shade: Backstage 035

Claim:  Is your lipstick giving you both moisture and wear? This velvety soft formula with moisturizing shea butter and aloe is food proof and doesn’t quit. 20 Shades. Apply once and go.

Price: $8.49

Pros:

  • gorgeous color/very pigmented
  • packaging seems good, especially when twisting the product up.

Cons:

  • becomes a little dry as time passes

Overall Opinion: I was so excited to try this color out since Olivia Wilde had it on the display. I usually go for the color the model is wearing because I've noticed that it's more of a current color for the season. This one as you can see is obviously appropriate for Fall/Winter. I honestly expected it to be a lot darker, but I think you can definitely build up the color. When I first applied it was a little sheer and after a few more layers it was this beautiful color. It went on quite easily too, definitely a soft texture. However, once you leave the color on for a while it will dry out a bit on your lips.

Do I Recommend?: Yes, I do. This particular shade is gorgeous and anyone would love to own it. Maybe they aren't the most hydrating lipsticks, but with a nice balm under it or a lipgloss over it, I'm sure the dryness will go away.
