A while ago I received an amazing package containing all 15 colors of the new Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor by the German drugstore Rossmann. I want to share my impression and the swatches of all 15 shades with you today:
I remember years ago that the brand Revlon was available in German drugstores. Then, suddenly, the brand was taken off the German market. Many people who loved that brand had to get the products from this brand during vacation in other countries or order from abroad. This year the German drugstore Rossmann announced the relaunch of Revlon in Germany. Welcome back, Revlon!
As the name says, the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor is a gel formula lipstick containing hyaluronic acid for moisturizing the lips. They glide on very smoothly and don’t feel drying on the lips, rather they feel very lightweight on the lips. Furthermore, they have a nice shine that they leave on the lips and yet have a good pigmentation. If you are scent sensitive I have to tell you though, that these lipsticks have a fruity and noticeable scent (mango nd whipped vanilla according to the description).
I will start with the nude colors of the available shades from top to bottom:
700 “Sand”: a light beige shade and the nudest color of the lipsticks
705 “Dawn”: a dusty rose color
710 “Desert”: a pink-brown shade
715 “Arabica”: a brownish, rusty shade
720 “Pink Cloud”: a light girly pink color
Despite being the nude colors from the range all colors show up nicely and look different from one another. My favourite here is Arabica since it fits perfectly for the autumn season.
The next shades are in the bright reds and pinks from top to bottom:
725 “Sunset”: a dark coral shade with great pigmentation
730 “Tropical”: A vibrant ad bright pink
735 “Garden”: a darker, pigmented pink
740 “Coral”: a bright and vibrant coral shade
745 “Rhubarb”: a pigmented cherry red
From these colors “Sunset” and “Rhubarb” are my favourite colors.
The last 5 swatches are the darker berry shades from top to bottom:
750 “Lava”: a classy and beautiful red shade
755 “Adobe”: a dark red shade
760 “Vineyard”: a mauve color
765 “Blossom”: a vibrant purple shade
770 “Twilight”: a dark purple shade
This is the color range I love the most shades from. Favourites are “Lava”, “Adobe”, and “Vineyard”.
As you can see there is so much versatility in the shades and despite the shiny and lightweight formula the color pay-off of all the shades is visible and shows up nicely. My personal favourites are from the darker shades, simply because pale pink colors don’t suit me much and the lighter shades don’t show up nicely because of my natural lip color. I really love the feeling when applying the lipsticks because they glide so nicely and leave a pretty sheen on the lips as well. They do not last forever though, but at least fade away nicely. The Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor comes in a slim pen-size and retails for 10.99US$.
What do you think about the color selection? Which is your favourite color?
