It’s been a while since Revlon launched their Ultra HD lipsticks, but I couldn’t pick them until recently. I bought the shade “HD Peony,” and the shade number is “845.” Unfortunately, not a lot of colors that will suit my skin tone were available at the counter in Thailand. Even then, I couldn’t resist myself from getting one because, firstly, I did not have a lipstick with HD formulation and secondly the price was just half of the Indian rate.
299 Thai Bhat (INR 575) for 3.0 g; however, it is priced for INR 1100 in India (no clue why there is such a huge difference in prices).
Revlon Ultra HD lipsticks have a unique, wax-free gel formula for vivid color in one smooth swipe. There are 20 standout shades to love.
My Experience with Revlon Peony Ultra HD Lipstick:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a silver tube with a clear plastic cap. The packaging is simple, and I like the clear lid, so I can see the actual color inside. The major drawback is that the lipstick bullet does not swivel down completely into the tube, meaning a good portion of the lipstick is still exposed when you are taking off or putting the cap back on. That’s a big no for someone as clumsy as me. The cap fits tightly, making it travel friendly. The shade name and number are printed on a color-coded sticker at the bottom of the tube. I personally did not like its flat head tip.
Texture: The texture of this lipstick is super creamy. It glides on like butter on the lips without any patchiness. It has a slightly glossy finish and a balmy feel. Revlon describes this formula as a wax-free gel. It does not dry out the lips and feels quite comfortable and lightweight. The lipstick does not accentuate dry patches.
Performance: HD Peony is a cool-toned pale, baby pink lipstick. The shade as such is so pretty, exactly that of peony flowers. Although my hand swatch showed up too light and pale, the color on my lips did not look fake/artificial because it blended with my natural lip color and gave my lips just enough color. This shade did not wash me out either. On my pigmented lips, it took two coats to build an almost opaque color. It applies evenly and actually has a very nice, silky finish, and a lightweight feel.
This shade does not have shimmer in it. Though not as moisturizing as Revlon lip butters, this lipstick has good enough moisturizing effect that my lips never get chapped from wearing it. The lip color tends to accumulate on the corners of the lips when layered on.
This shade may not suit a lot of skin tones, but I liked it on my medium deep skin, and it will certainly be a very pretty pink for really fair skin tones. The staying power is quite low for this lipstick. This lipstick lasted not even 2 or 3 hours on me before fading. With intake of food, the color just vanishes without any trace.
Due to the creaminess, this lipstick does transfer quite a bit. It has a mild sweet scent, which disappears soon after the application. It does not settle into fine lines. It is very easy to remove off the lips.
Pros of Revlon Peony Ultra HD Lipstick:
- Creamy texture.
- Glossy crème finish and balmy feel.
- Moisturizing, does not accentuate dry patches.
- Feels light and non-sticky on the lips.
Cons of Revlon Peony Ultra HD Lipstick:
- Inconvenient packaging – this lipstick does not swivel all the way down in the tube.
- Staying power.
- Does not suit a lot of skin tones.
- Expensive, especially in the Indian market.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Revlon Peony Ultra HD Lipstick?
No to both, because there are many other beautiful shades in this range. I loved Revlon Ultra HD lip lacquers more than this lipstick.
