My Experience with Revlon Carnelian Ultra HD Lip Lacquer:
The packaging is simple yet functional. The body is transparent and hence automatically color coded. The shade name and number is mentioned at the base of the tube. The top has a cute bling crystal which makes the tube look gorgeous. Otherwise there is nothing special in the packaging. I quite like the simplicity of the lip lacquers.
The texture is super thick and hence you have to be careful while application. I scrape off the excess and go ahead with the application as too much of the product leads to messy results. The applicator is like a brush unlike the regular doe-foot ones available with normal glosses. I would rather call it a liquid lipstick in terms of texture and consistency. There are no shimmers in the particular shade and hence the application is smooth.
The shade is a gorgeous dark red with pick undertones. It is super glossy and looks stunning on the lips. It is definitely not a shade for the weak hearted. I generally wear it blotted as it is way too bold and glossy for me.
The staying power varies depending on the food/fluid intake as it is glossy and transfers heavily to cups/cutlery.
On me it stayed for 3-4 hours in full glory after which it started to fade evenly. When worn blotted the stain remains for 6 hours or so and hence I personally prefer to wear it as a stain more than as a lacquer.
