Today, I am reviewing the shade “HD Devotion” from the newly-launched Revlon Ultra HD Matte liquid lipstick range. Read on further to find out more about this matte lip color.
$9.49, prices vary from store to store.
Lightweight, high definition velvety matte color. Moisturizing, velvety feel, 100% wax-free, gel formula. Available in 8 high definition shades.
My Experience with Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color – HD Devotion:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a sleek flat oval tube in a frosted matte finish and a silver cap. The packaging is quite attractive and classy. The cap is a screw-on type and hence there is no danger of it coming off loose. It comes with a paddle-shaped applicator. It is easy to use and makes the application precise and quick.
Shade/Pigmentation: “HD Devotion” is the perfect rose pink color and it’s my favorite shade from this range. It is a shade which will suit most skin tones and is apt for daily/office wear.
The lipstick is highly pigmented and one swipe gives you opaque coverage. There is no clumping if you layer on the lipstick; however, you need to be careful with the application as the lipstick has a tendency to transfer onto the teeth.
Texture/Finish: This is a liquid lipstick and has a creamy texture. It is not very runny and spreads easily on the lips. Of all the shades that I possess from this range, I found “HD devotion” to be the most close to matte, but even this shade does not dry down completely and remains slightly wet.
This lipstick feels pretty comfortable and lightweight on the lips and does not feel drying initially, but as the day passes, I experience slight tackiness/stickiness when I purse my lips together. The lipstick doesn’t settle into lip lines. But since this is a liquid lipstick, I would recommend exfoliating lips before application or else it would highlight dry patches.
The lipstick has a pretty strong fruity candy scent. Those of you who are sensitive to fragrances in their cosmetics will surely not like it. The good part is that the scent doesn’t stay on for long once applied.
Staying Power: Since this lipstick is not truly matte, it does transfer a bit. It lasts on me for around 4-5 hours depending on what I am snacking/drinking. It leaves behind a slight stain on the lips for which you would requrie a makeup remover to take it off.
Pros of Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color – HD Devotion:
• Lovely rose pink shade
• Creamy texture which glides smoothly on lips
• Strong pigmentation
• Attractive packaging
• Does not feel drying on the lips.
Cons of Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color – HD Devotion:

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color – HD Devotion?
If you like liquid lipsticks with a slight sheen, you may try it out, but it is not a completely matte lipstick.
I will not repurchase the exact same shade.
