Last week I got the shade Designer from the 17shades family. Lets see that how much am I satisfied from this new introduction from Revlon.

My experience with Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Seude in Designer 097:-
I was very excited to try these thinking about their long staying power and the classy transparent packaging. Here I give the detailed review of how it looked and how it has come up to:
Shade: The shade I chose is Designer which is a reddish orange shade with minute gold shimmer in it. If swiped 1-2 coats it gives a frosty look but if swiped more than that it gives a matte effect to the lips. These are available in 17 beautiful shades and Designer captivated me more than any other shade. It is sheer if applied in one swipe as you can see in the hand swatch picture and the gold shimmer is visible in it.
Packaging: It was the packaging that attracted me the most. It has a transparent packaging which we feel is transparent but the lower body is of the same shade of the tube so it seems like that. It’s very sturdy and the cap fits tightly so no opening of it. The body and the cap is quiet sturdy and won’t break even it falls down. The name of the shade is written in the bottom and these can be easily picked from a stash full of lipsticks.
Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Seude in Designer 097 Swatches:-
- Texture: This again has a surprise hidden, when we look at the tube, it looks extremely beautiful and Designer has a shimmery frosty look, and it claims to give a ultra nourishing matte look.
After you apply the lipstick, the lips have a moisturizing effect and looks beautiful, but this effect stays only for about10-15 minutes after that, it becomes sticky and gives a heavy feel. If you rub your lips, they will tend to stick to each other and this is the time where I dislike it the most.
Staying Power: Aah!! Here comes the main point, as named by the brand “Colorstay”, yes it has a long staying and its so long that it comes off only with a make up remover. I have shown in the pictures that even after 4-5 hours it stays on the lips.
But if u wear it and after few hours have your meal then as shown in my next picture , it will vanish from the inner lip area and will settle in the fine lines and chip all over which looks ugly. And as it has a great staying power you cannot even wipe off with a tissue, you need to have a make up remover. I will avoid this lipstick for parties, where it may look like this after I will have my snacks and dinner.
What I like aboutRevlon Colorstay Ultimate Seude in Designer 097:
- Available in many shades
- Sturdy and attractive packaging
- Super long staying power
What I don’t like about Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Seude in Designer 097:
- Sticky texture
- Gives a heavy feel
- Fades unevenly
- After having a meal, it scatters and vanishes from the inner lip and becomes flaky.
- Not suitable to wear for parties
- Need to be removed only with a remover
Final Thoughts or I should say a Final Question: Revlon, what were you thinking when you thought of introducing a lipstick with such a horrible texture??
