Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color “Devotion” | Review

Hi friends!

Today I wanted to let you all know my thoughts on the other Revlon Matte Lip Color I own!  In an effort to see if maybe the formula was inconsistent between colors, I wanted to share my experience with another shade.  You can see the original review for Obsession here.

Devotion is a nude pink with slightly yellow undertones.  It’s a color that I think also looks very flattering on me.  However, once again the formula disappointed me.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color “Obsession” | Review

Hello friends!

Before I get into the review, I’d like to start by saying that it did not go the way I had expected it to.  This was one of the first lip product’s I’d purchased for myself when I got into makeup, and I used to just love wearing it.  I distinctly remember bringing it to work and reapplying throughout the day multiple times.

Obsession is a beautiful hot pink with blue undertones, which is incredibly flattering on my neutral skin tone.

In terms of application, I really enjoyed the applicator’s shape.  It has a bit of a triangle shape to it, and the curve fits my lips incredibly well, so I found it very easy to maneuver.  It also smells absolutely incredible, like a sweet fruity candy.  While I absolutely adore the color and scent, the formula was surprising.
