When Revlon announced their new suede range I was really interested in knowing how it would work out. I went all creative thinking that maybe they made a new finish that felt like suede you know how you get these different finishes in nail paints like the furry ones. I thought they made a breakthrough like that and was very excited about it. But it was not to be 🙁
Before getting into what was my experience with this let me just describe the basics of the product for you. The packing is nice. Made mainly of transparent plastic where half of it has a product colored plastic part inside. The combination of the black with the colored part looks eye catching. And the plastic is thick and does not have that cheap feeling.
It flakes then and starts stripping off. Poorna from Presented by P had warned me that it would do that. She had swatched it at the back of her hand and let it be for sometime. She found it coming out in flakes within half an hour. Knowing this I bought just one as I wanted to try out this new product for myself. Technically something that is supposed to last you for a long time does have a drying nature but if I forgive that aspect of it then it should have at least lasted me properly and not started peeling on first contact with food.

Honestly I’m glad that I just bought one of it. It is still money down the drain but I managed to cut my losses as I didn’t go splurging on it keep the advice of my friend in mind. I think you are better off buying a stain that provides you moisturization as well as durability than opting for this. Once again, this falls into the category of where Revlon got it wrong. Has been happening a lot with them and getting their stuff has become a gamble 🙂
Have any of you tried this one? Did it work for you? Which is your favorite long lasting lip product that you swear by? I will not repeat the name of the ones I like coz I feel like I’m singing an advertising jingle for them all the time 😛 You know who you are….yes you in all your lush goodness 😉 And that was my goofy dose for the day. I will see you soon – See ya later, alligator!
