Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer – HD Pink Ruby Review

Hello ladies,

After being blown away by Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in the shade “HD Strawberry Topaz,” I could not wait to wear the other shade that I bought from the same range. It is “HD Pink Ruby,” and I must say it is no less than the other one. Revlon has brilliantly named these lip lacquers after gemstones, and they indeed sparkle like those gemstones.

Ingredients Revlon HD lip lacquer

My Experience with Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer – HD Pink Ruby:

Packaging: The lip lacquer comes in a clear plastic container, showing off the product’s bright and vibrant color. It has a twist-up silver cap with the brand name written on it. Such a novel thought for Revlon to add a beautiful diamond-shaped gemstone at the top of the cap, representing their shades being named after gemstones. The shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the tube. The applicator is flexible and not plastic, making the application easy and neat. It works like a lip brush and is very efficient, but the brush always picks up much product, thus the excess needs to be wiped off.

Texture: The texture is thick and semi-sticky. It has a rich, intense, opaque color loaded with micro shimmers and also gives a lip gloss feel. It is highly pigmented and easy to apply. It provides a smooth, flawless finish. These lip lacquers can be worn on its own because of their opacity. It has a gel base rather than a wax and delivers the exact color that we see in the tube. It also feels softer and bouncier on the lips.

Performance: “HD Pink Ruby” is a bright fuchsia pink shade with purple shimmers. This shade is so beautiful and will suit all complexions. The color is so intense and opaque and thus can be worn on its own, just one swipe and you are good to go. The lip lacquer is more like a liquid lipstick with a glossy finish. Lip glosses have never looked good on my pigmented lips. I doubted if this product will work for me or not, but it took me by surprise with its pigmentation. I guess the Ultra HD claim is for its vibrant, vivid, highly defined color.

The color starts off as full coverage but drops to medium coverage over time. I worried if the color will settle as a sheer gloss, but that’s not the case. Unlike “HD Strawberry Topaz,” this shade feels light and not so sticky on the lips. Revlon’s claim of these lip lacquers giving a bouncy, lightweight feel is very true with this particular shade. The staying power is incredible. It stays on for 6 hours even with the intake of wholesome food, which is amazing for a lip lacquer/gloss. It does not settle into fine lines.

It does transfer but does not bleed. It is also moisturizing and does not accentuate any dry patches. This shade brightens my face instantly, and it also photographs beautifully. When the color fades, it does not leave behind a layer of shimmer, but unlike HD Strawberry Topaz, it does stain the lips heavily.

A makeup remover is a must to remove the color. Overall, I am in love with this product, and also very upset that I picked only two shades.
