Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick - 006 Ultimate Orchid - Review

Today I have a review for you on the Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick in the shade Ultimate Orchid.

I just randomly saw this on a bottom shelf at Target and wondered, "hmm, is this like all the new matte liquid lipsticks that have been taking over lately?" (If you haven't noticed, I've also jumped on this matte liquid lipstick bandwagon. Although I have dry and sensitive lips, I just love me some matte lipsticks!)
I chose this shade because it looked like the only one that didn't have any glitter bits in it. It also looked similar to Koala from ColourPop, which I kinda had my eye on for awhile but decided not to pick up in my recent ColourPop order.

So here are my thoughts...

It is transfer-proof.

It doesn't take excessive force to remove. In other words, it's not as crazy heavy duty as other liquid lipsticks on the market right now.

It is not as opaque as I would like. It almost has a gloss type opacity, which is not what I want out of a liquid lip color like this.

Adding an additional layer on top increases stickiness. It has a sticky feeling to it initially too, but it's not sticky enough to remove any spots when you press your lips together. It gets less sticky with time, but there is still some tackiness to it after a few hours.

When it wears off, it doesn't do it gradually. You can clearly see the places with and without product.

Strange thing is, it behaves well with lip balm on top, like the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick does. That's about the only positive thing the little guy has going for it though. The lip balm doesn't break down the product, like some liquid lipsticks can.

It is also a very dry and uncomfortable feeling on the lips. It isn't the most flattering texture on the lips either.

one layer, gloss-like opacity
two layers, gets super sticky
In the end, this thing is going back to Target as soon as I get the chance! For $8.27, this is not worth it!

I hope this helps!
