I was on a major shopping spree during the holiday season in December and splurged quite a bit on makeup stuff. During one such spree, I decided that I needed to own all the 8 shades from the Revlon Ultra HD Matte lip colors. I already own and have reviewed 6 shades from this range (Devotion, Obsession, Addiction, Temptation, Love, and Seduction). I went ahead and bought the shades “Flirtation” and “Passion” as well. Today, I am reviewing the shade Flirtation for you. Read on to find out more.
$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 Flirtation:
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 which is quite standard. It is easy to use and makes the application precise and quick.
Shade/Pigmentation: HD Flirtation is the perfect coral shade and it screams summer to me. It is a lovely shade but a bit tricky to carry off. It will not suit darker skin tones and might end up looking a bit garish. The lipstick is decently pigmented, but two swipes are needed for a fully opaque coverage. There is slight clumping of the lipstick if you layer it on. Also, 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. Even though this range is advertised as matte, the lipstick does not dry down completely and remains slightly wet.
The lipstick feels pretty comfortable and lightweight on the lips and does not feel drying, but as the day passes, I experience a slight tackiness/stickiness when I purse my lips together. This particular shade does settle into lip lines and highlights dry patches. Hence, I would recommend exfoliating lips before application.
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 hours depending on what I am snacking/drinking.

Would I Repurchase Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color – HD Flirtation?
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.
