Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks and Lip Lacquers

As a participant in this program with Revlon and CVS/pharmacy, I’ve received product samples and/or compensation for my time and efforts in creating this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’m sitting here with my lips in high definition! — just for you. 🙂

So…what does HD even mean anyway?

Maybe it refers to back in the day (seven years ago), when HD filming took off on TV, and everybody was like, “Oh! Let’s do makeup for HD,” which was completely different than regular makeup (but really, a lot of it was marketing).

Hey, whatever. I’m a sucker for it.

In Revlon’s new Ultra HD™ Lipstick and Ultra HD™ Lip Lacquer lines ($9.99 each and available now in a wide range at CVS/pharmacy stores), the HD is more or less code for “Gel Technology,” which is what they say these have. Basically, you’ve got a gel base, rather than a wax, and it’s designed to deliver purer pigments that are truer to what you see in the tube. They also feel softer and bouncier on the lips.

I really get the sense that both of these are hugging my lips, and when I say “hugging,” I don’t mean like a bear hug, or one of those “Hey, girl!” hugs with the two hands, where you pat somebody’s back. I mean, like a good hug, where you feel the product caress your lips and hold them tightly.

It’s kind of a pervy hug…like if someone comes up to you and hugs you a little too tightly, and you’re like, “Oh!”

But it’s not that gross! It’s actually very nice.

Wear time depends on whether we’re talking about the lipsticks or the lacquers, with the lacquers lasting 3-4 hours, and the lipsticks lasting about half as long.

With the lipsticks — they’re super smooth, and you get a lot of color from a single swipe. I think they’re closer to really intensely pigmented lip balms than straight-up lipsticks, and even the brighter colors still have some sheerness to them.

Smooth, lightweight, non-sticky formula, brief 2-hour wear time, and a caramel and raspberry flavor and scent (officially, it’s whipped vanilla and cream mango?). Medium coverage. And they’re all named after flowers. 🙂

Both products, the lipsticks and the lacquers, taste and smell a bit like caramel and raspberry to me, which may sound gross, but it totally works. It’s not overwhelming or annoying at all.

The lip lacquers feel thicker than the lipsticks and are utterly flooded with intense pigment. Because of that, I think of them more as liquid lipsticks with a glossy finish.

The same raspberry and caramel flavor and scent as the Revlon Ultra HD™ Lipsticks. Medium-weight, semi-sticky formula. They start off as full coverage but drop to medium coverage over time. Interestingly, they last longer than the lipsticks on my lips. About 3-4 hours. And these are named after gemstones! After all, pink diamonds are a girl’s best friend. 🙂

  1. Awwwww yeah! I like the look of these! Especially the lippies are very me. The formula sounds nice and I love that they’re not too in your face bright.

  2. Melissa Valdez says:

    Love the T-Shirt you are wearing! Amazing pink color. May I ask where you got it from?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Melissa!

      It’s from Old Navy — the Women’s V-Neck Vintage Tee in For Our Fuschia. If you end up getting it I recommend *not* putting it in the dryer. I did that once and it put a hole in it, boo! So yeah. Hang to dry, and wash in the delicate cycle.

  3. Ada says:

    I love those lippies! Very pretty. And love the t-shirt too!

  4. Bebe says:

    Besides the lovely lipsticks I really like your necklace
    where did you get it from ?
    Please tell us Karen

    xoxoxoxo

    • Karen says:

      Hi Bebe,

      It’s from Anthropologie. I got it a couple years ago! Unfortunately I can’t remember the designer. If I find something similar I’ll let ya know!

  5. Erin says:

    I haven’t ventured into the lipstick territory because I heard they don’t last nearly as long as the glosses. I have 3 glosses now and will be adding Strawberry Topaz in the mix soon!

    I read a lot of good things about the glosses, not so much about the lipsticks though. I heard they are drying.

    But I agree, that color of T shirt looks great on you!

  7. Hibiscus looks great on you. Too bad I can’t go check it out in person. It really is annoying that Revlon isn’t sold in Germany!

    It’s unusual but cool that the lacquers last longer than the lipsticks huh. The ones I like the best of all are Tourmaline and Sunstone.

  9. Vanessa says:

    Your product could be the real deal promotional pics. Nice!

  10. Diana says:

    This one reminds me of Revlon Colorburst series released around 2011-2012. The lip lacquer was also more pigmented than the lipstick. I may try Citrine, Fire Opal, or Sunstone.

  11. Ashleigh says:

    I love these lipsticks! The packaging is not my favorite, since you can’t twist them all the way down, but the formula itself looks really good on my lips. I have Tulip and Poppy. 🙂 Tulip look like a completely different color on me, it’s very bright and pigmented. But my lips have no pigment to them so maybe that’s why.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ashleigh,

      You’re so lucky that Tulip is bright and pigmented on your lips! I was hoping for something a little more bold… Maybe I’ll try blanking my lips out first. 🙂

      Is it Friday yet? lol

  12. Kalli says:

    I have one of the lacquers but I was disappointed by it 🙁 It just felt so thick and gloopy on my lips and smeared everywhere. I just felt like it was really finicky to use, but the colors are so pretty! I have been eyeing the lipsticks every time I see them though!

    Very pretty lipsticks .. bright but not over the top. Will pass on the lip gloss though as I’m not a fan of brush applicators for lip gloss 😛

    I haven’t tried the lipsticks but I like the glosses! They are more like liquid lipsticks and I really like that

    I’m looking for an orange lipstick and I’ve got CVS Extrabucks. Maybe Hibiscus will be it. I like that you said it has a bit of sheerness which I think is good for an orange lippie!

    Great colors- and multiple pretty colors, not just 1 or 2 in a collections. I will be visiting CVS soon- thank you! Have a lovely weekend.

  18. Krista says:

    I had justhe assumed the lip lacquers were a gloss since I never actually knew the full name of them and now that I know they are more liquid lipstick than lip gloss, I think I may need to pick some up!!
