It was one of those things: I didn’t fall headfirst at our initial meeting, but we learned to get along as time passed.
Oh, I don’t mean the BFF who butted heads with me the first day we met and is now my soul sister. That person doesn’t even exist.
I was talking about Revlon’s newest longwear lipstick. What did you think I was talking about?
Certainly not imaginary BFFs.
I picked up Runway, Supermodel, Fashionista, Trendsetter, Catwalk and Backstage.
L-R: Catwalk, Backstage, Runway, Trendsetter, Supermodel, Fashionista.
So, here’s my story:
When these were first released, I picked up Catwalk just to test out the formula. I usually select a neutral color when trying out a new lipstick line.
Well….lemme just say that Catwalk was not the flawless, perfectly glamorous traipse down the model ramp that Naomi Campbell always delivers. The color itself I loved, but the texture and feel of the lip product took some getting used to. It adhered to my lips in a strange way; it felt almost like paint. It felt odd at first, but I kept wearing it because I needed to use it up, and I eventually got used to it. Once of my favorite things about this is the 7 hour wear time. Yup…..7 hours! I could spend an entire work day running between appointments and not having to worry about touch ups.
Catwalk: A medium golden brown with orange tones. It contains just enough orange to keep it from being a flat brown.
Backstage: A deep burgundy. It’s a little more red, making it not so vampy.
Runway: A light brown with shimmer. It’s a little peachy-bronze as well.
The way I photographed these three are in reverse order in the swatch photos. In the product photos they are Trendsetter, Supermodel, Fashionista.
Fashionista: A brownish brick red. This is one of my favorites.
Supermodel: A mauve plum. This is not really my color, but it is a nice color nonetheless.
Trendsetter: A bright cherry red. I think this could work across a variety of skintones. It looks kinda sheer in the swatch pic but it does offer decent coverage
I think these are nice lip products. If you are not sensitive to lipsticks that cling to your lips, I would suggest checking these out. If you have dry lips, you might want to skip these.
Pros: Very long lasting, takes a while to use up a tube (aided by the lack of a need to reapply often), comes in lovely colors, easy to use, slim packaging, affordable.
Cons: Might make some lips uncomfortable, not good for very dry lips.
