Price: It costs Rs 545/-
Packaging: I LOVE the packaging. The gold packaging is very appealing to me. I find it very classy and take advantage of every chance i have to whip it out and retouch or reapply my lipcolor.
Formula: It is a VERY creamy and moisturizing lipcolor. I would say that it is too creamy, because the next day of the purchase i accidently forgot to lower the bullet properly and ended up squishing it and a LOT of product is stuck in the cap. It does give your lips a moisturised feel, but the same thing makes the lipcolor disappear quickly.(I hope you can see just how creamy it is by looking at the picture and the second picture shows the amount of product that is stuck in the cap ).
Staying Power: Due to the reason that it is very creamy, it tends to rub off on kerchiefs and tea cups. It will disappear almost completely within 1-2 hours and you will have to reapply is frequently. But it does last longer if you apply a similar peachy lip liner underneath (up to 3 hours). But on the other hand, if you apply gloss on top of it, it tends to fade even faster.
SWATCHES: Without flash with flash
Colour and Finish: The shade I own is called “Don’t Stop Apricot”. How cute is that?!It is indeed a peachy, apricot like shade it is a very pleasant and buildable shade. It goes sheer on one swipe and will become opaque to a point. But basically it is on the sheerer side. It has a crème-shimmery finish. The shimmer is not over the top, it has more of a sheen rather than OTT shimmer.
Scent: It has the smell of Almond essence or Apple Seed (according to my mother).It is not exactly an unpleasant smell. But somehow i prefer the normal cosmetics scent than this smell. But it is all up to individual taste. For example, my mother LOVED this smell.
Does it deliver what it claims?: It claims to give plumping effect. I did not buy this because of that claim, but because of the colour and packaging. When you first apply the lipcolor, there is a slight stinging/numbing feeling (I don’t know how else to explain it).but I have rather plump lips and i have not seen any visible change.
Value For money: It contains 4g of product for Rs 545/- but since it is very creamy and you need to reapply it a lot, it doesn’t last for much time. So i think the pricing is a little too steep. I have thought it is so with all the Revlon products.
Final Thoughts: Although it was an impulse buy do love the shade and I do use it a lot, the shade is my first peach shade, so i do ADORE it. But i am a more matte or satin finish and long wear lipstick person so this is not one of my favourites.
Rating: 2.5/5 (+2.5 for shade, Finish and packaging,-2.5 for too much creaminess and bad staying power)
Will I Repurchase This?: No! I will never repurchase this; it is not my kind of Formula at all.
Would I recommend this?: If you are a moisturising lipstick person, then do try it out. You might or might not like it. I don’t think it is for everyone, very few might find it their HG lipstick. Rather, you should go for The Colorburst lipstick which costs only Rs 5 more but is way better.
