Hello, lovelies~ I'm not usually into matte lipsticks, but I have been trying a number of them lately. I like how they look on my lip, but I just can't stand it if they're drying out my lips. I have a tendency to lick my lips if it feels dry, lol. Bad habit, I know. I've been trying Revlon's matte liquid lipcolor, so here is what I think of them.
The liquid lipstick doesn’t come in a separate box, but it does have a bar code seal, so it is obvious if the cap were twist off. It indicates that the product has been used. Unlike a round lip product, this one has a rather flat surface like it was squished from the top.
Despite it looking weird, I kinda like the way the bottle sits on a flat surface because it won’t roll away. I’ve a couple of round ones that roll away and ended up broken on the floor.
The applicator is long and flat on both sides, kinda like someone took a regular lip gloss applicator and pinched it from the sides. Well, it looks like that to me, lol. I like that the flat applicator has a larger surface area compared to other applicators, making it quicker to distribute the product onto my lips.
However, I would like it even more if the edge is slightly pointier because it helps me a lot when it comes to applying the corners of my lips. You know, pointier equals reaching smaller areas easily?

I bought two shades from this collection, a light and dark shade. The first one is called Devotion, which is a rosy pink that looks almost similar to my lip color. The other shade is called Addiction, which is a deep pinkish red with a hint of mauve shade.
The formula spreads easily on my lips and reminds me slightly of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in that it being a hybrid of cream and mousse. It is quite opaque that it is able to cover my lips with one swipe. I haven’t tried their lighter shades, so I’m not sure the opacity can be generalized for all shades.
Like most liquid lipsticks, it feels wet when it was first applied and slowly dries to a matte formula. When I say slowly, I really mean it. Even when it's dry, it's not completely matte. I usually just leave it for a minute or two and then dab it with a sheet of tissue. It's not transfer proof, so it can still leave a stain on surfaces even once dried.
Even though it looks matte, I find that it is quite moisturizing on my dry lips. Unlike tints that is drying and sinks into every crevice of my lips, this feels comfortable. It feels like I have just applied a layer of lip balm, wiped it off and then used the liquid lipstick on top. Confusing? Well, it’s just not drying, is what I’m trying to say.
I feel like almost every lip product I have encountered could not stand most of Indonesian meals. Why? Our meals are too greasy. Kwetiaw goreng, sate padang, rendang are amongst the few I can think of. This liquid lipstick is no exception when it comes to staying on after a proper Indonesian meal. The edges are still there, but the middle part are starting to fade. Acceptable.
Overall, I think the shades are suitable for my makeup needs, i.e. office wear and weekend looks. Devotion is another MLBB shade to fit right in my collection. It feels comfortable on my lips and doesn’t accentuate any cracks or chapped lips I have. I would have to reapply every once in a while, but it’s not a problem for me.
What do you think? Have you tried this product from Revlon? I know it has been out in the States for a while, but my country has just recently stock this at their counters. Let me know what you think about them in the comments below. Thanks for reading and until then, I’ll see you later~
