We are a bunch of makeup junkies and are totally aware about all the trends and fads of the season. When it comes to fall, we cannot think of anything over wine and plum lips. They are the colours of the season and we have started to see everyone indulging in these shades already. Rati di did a recent post on plum lips, which means that the trend has started. So here I present you, a gorgeous shade from Revlon that I personally adore a lot.
One-step, ultra-comfortable wear with all-day colour. Dries to a beautiful suede finish. Instantly moisturizing using a combination of Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Aloe. Applies evenly for full, creamy colour coverage. Lips feel smooth, conditioned and comfortable. Does not feather of bleed. 92% of women said feels lightweight, 95% said lips feel smooth, 95% said lips felt comfortable, 95% said colour doesn’t feather or bleed.
My Experience with Revlon Fashion Forward Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick:
Revlon Colostay range is one of the best to try out for makeup junkies. I have heard a lot of people rave about this range, hence I thought to add some shades to my vanity from this range. I picked a lot of warm colours that would suit the coming fall season. Initially, looking at the packaging and bullets, I thought that the shades are pretty close to each other, but when I actually used them, then I got to know the real colours.
The lipstick comes in regular circular packaging which is very travel friendly and easy to arrange in the vanity. The packaging resembles the shade, which makes it very easy to spot your favourite one. The bullet looks a little glossy, but the formula turns completely matte in a while.
The shade “Fashion Forward” is a very stunning and an elegant plum wine colour with hot pink hints. It is perfect for fall, I mean isn’t lips the current thing! It instantly creates a pop and the look is very classy and sophisticated. The shade can be used alone, as well as can be paired up with smokey eyes to create more drama. The lipstick glides very smoothly on the lips, but the application has to be very carefully done as the lipstick is soft enough to chip.
It contains micro shimmers, but they do not look cheap. In fact, the micro shimmers are not visible and they give a velvety look to the lips. The lipstick turns super matte within 5 minutes, after application. It does not settle in fine lines and the most surprising thing for me was that it did not transfer at all. I kissed the glasses, my hands and what not 😛 but even a hint of plum wine shade was not observed.
My lips started to feel a little dry after 3 hours, but not very dry. It was pretty bearable. The lipstick stayed on my lips as it is for more than 8 hours and it did survive full meals, snacks and also water sips. It has to be removed with a very powerful make up remover or oil based cleanser because a gentle one would not work to remove this.
I think this is a perfect lipstick for winter and I am really impressed with this range.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Revlon Fashion Forward Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick?
Yes, totally. Fashion is changing, as we are welcoming a new season, “fall/winter” and this would be perfect to start with. I love it and I am enjoy using it a lot, currently. I am looking forward to try more shades from this range. But, I would you to go for bolder and brighter shades, as they work better than the lighter ones.
Wine lips are really in vogue these days, hence pick up some warm shades to rock this season.
