    OMG…..I bought these because there were some pretty colors but regretted them after the first swipe! These were dry and made my lips crave for some moisture and worst of all……at midday when I looked in the mirror, they had caked in patches all over my lips and looked horrible!! Oh! I gave them another try and this time I moisturized my lips and prepped them well. But the same thing happened and I could actually ‘feel’ the damn thing caking on my lips! Yuck! Hate! No!

      Yeouch! Sounds like an awful experience, Jackie >.< I didn’t have as bad an experience, but they are definitely drying and sticky and I really didn’t like these :( Quite a bit of a let down after the Lip Butters eh?

    Oooh red lips on you finally!! :) :)

    I haven’t seen these at the counters here yet. But the colours aren’t that very exciting, are they? At the moment I am loving No. 7 lipsticks. :)

      Haha yes, red lips! The colours remind me a lot of the Lip Butters, just more pigmented. I think you’re safer sticking to the Lip Butters :D

    I have tried them at Guardian when they were out a few months ago and I did not really like them as I found them too drying. I actually agree with you on always choosing Revlon as a favourite drugstore lippie as I too have rarely been disappointed. I have been using a particular colour in the Super Lustrous range for years and quite like the lipstick. On another note, I bought my first Dior Addict lipstick yesterday because you rave about it here so much and really love it. It is such a moisturising lipstick and the SA helped me choose a lovely rose colour that really brightens us my complexion :-)

      Oh I love Superlustrous! I used to have quite a few of them! Their glosses were really good too, that I remember. Colours are safe but at least we know they’ll work :D Ooh you got a Dior lipstick!! Aren’t they just lovely?! I’m spoilt after using them, but the Lip Butters do come as a close save from the pharmacies ;)

    Revlon is what I go to for lip products too. I’ve been reading so many similar reviews of these suede lipsticks and they are all less than average. I have 2 sitting in my “to test” box, and I am so reluctant to open it >_<
    Nonetheless, red looks fab on you!

      Thanks Lily, and who knows, maybe it’ll work for you? :) I know someone who does like it so a lot will depend on a person’s preference

    I did not like these at all, found very drying on lips! but definitely love the lip butters and lip stain range!

      I think that appears to be a common complaint, Parita! Drying! Would have been nice if they had made it like a more pigmented lip butter eh?

    I LOVE Revlon lip products! But… for some reason I wasn’t really taken by these at all. Time will tell, perhaps?

      Or maybe they won’t since many people don’t seem to like it very much too! LOL

    You already know how I feel about these lipsticks. Not impressed at all :-( I can’t get past that strange tacky feeling on my lips and it gets so dry and patchy after a while. It’s a shame too because I like most of Revlon lip products including the Just Bitten Balm Stain.

      Its a pity about these – they have some pretty colours :( I got that sticky feel too and the drying feeling for sure. I wasn’t too crazy about the Lip Stain as I too found it drying, but it was definitely less drying that this one!

    BLECHH I hated these LOL. Way too sticky for me! It’s like having sticky jam all over your lips and then it gets all patchy. Not a fan at all!

      LOL!! That’s a graphic description, Tracy! :D I like how they look the minute they go on, but after a while it all goes downhill :(

    I think it would look so pretty on you if you top off Finale with a little of Front Row in the middle of your bottom lip ;)

      That’s an idea, thanks Sharon! :)

    Oh wow, FINALE!!! Soooo pigmented and you know I love pigment! We always have to wait FOREVER for Revlon products to be available here, and they’re notoriously hard to locate. Will definitely check these out when they show up though!

      Would be interesting to know how you feel about these, Sunny! Many people are finding them drying or sticky but we know that one woman’s lipstick is another’s poison ;)

    I love Revlon lip products too, but these don’t seem to be up to their usual standards. I think I’ll pass, but what a shame. The shades look gorgeous, especially Finale!

      These reminded me of a more moisturising Matte lipstick but I think it didn’t quite work. Matte lipsticks are notoriously drying anyway so I think its always a bit challenging to work with. I do like the colours though!

    I have Preview. I like the colour, but I hate that it dries my lips out after a few hours. It’s so hard to wear and love because it is drying.

      Sigh… it would seem that we all have the same problem with this being drying! Pity, the colours are so pretty right?

    I have a few shades of this. It’s a very interesting formula–feels very velvety or suede-like indeed. And the product feels quite light on. But I didn’t feel like they were moisturizing in the slightest and the formula was a bit too slick and silicone-y feeling for my taste. They definitely do catch on every tiny bit of flakiness on the lips and I also feel like they don’t apply very evenly color-wise, either :/

      I didn’t have too much trouble with application but I think the texture is the one that doesn’t quite grab most of us, with sticky being the most common complaint. That said, I’ve never been a fan of matte lipsticks anyway so I’m not too surprised that these didn’t work for me :D

    Its very drying, Lucky i only bought one color, and now i just leave it sitting aside.

      Ahhh you too Fanny! It seems like so many of us feel the same way :(

    Like really there’s no shimmer or sparkles?
    Guess the lighting really tricked me. I ignored swatching these when i thought i saw too many sparkles from the tube, and it really turned me off. Guess i was wrong. :|
    Need to take a second look next time. :)

    • Paris B
      May 3, 2013

      I didn’t notice any, Liyana :) The close up swatches don’t show up any either but under store lighting it might come off being a bit shiny which I attribute to the texture. That said, I do think Revlon does better lipsticks than these so I’d rather get their Superlustrous ;)

    Hi Paris. This is going to be redundant but yes, I bought Finale and I love how it looks initially but it is drying and has a weird sticky texture as you (and many others) experienced. As the day goes on it fades in patches and makes my lips looked diseased! Am going to try and find ways to make it work though cause I love how Finale initially looks. I think it’s the perfect day time red.
