The hydrating lip colour that will make you love liquid lipstick again

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this comfortable long-wearing lippy

The product

Look, when it comes to long-wearing lip colour nothing beats a liquid lipstick. But on the flipside they’re also traditionally very uncomfortable to wear, usually drying out lips, cracking and flaking all over the place, and they can be a nightmare to remove. The amount of times we’ve rubbed our smackers raw trying to get off a particularly stubborn formula is shameful to be honest.

Thankfully, Revlon Colorstay Satin Ink™ Lipcolor takes all the best parts of liquid lipstick (like long-lasting, vivid colour payoff) and combines it with the benefits of a moisturising lippy.  Thanks to the addition of long-lasting hydrators like black currant seed oil and vitamin E, it locks in hydration long after you’ve applied. Yep that’s right, your lipstick can last through your morning coffee AND lunch break without having to compromise on comfort.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this breakthrough in long-wearing lipstick tech.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Revlon Colorstay Satin Ink™ Lipcolor to a panel of women aged 25 and older who wear lipstick on a regular basis and needed an update to their lip wardrobe.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Revlon Colorstay Satin Ink™ Lipcolor.

The long-lasting colour payoff: Our members were really impressed by the long-lasting formula, with many confessing it lasted all day and even stood up against multiple meals and snacks, with little to no touch-ups required.

The comfortable, hydrating finish: Those of our reviewers who weren’t typically fans of traditional drying liquid lipstick formulas loved that they didn’t have to worry about their lipstick feeling uncomfortable, cracking or flaking throughout the day. Instead, the addition of lip-nourishing ingredients like black currant seed oil and vitamin E kept their lips feeling moisturised and comfortable long after application.

The sheeny shine it gave lips: Our members who were used to a more matte finish liquid lip colour loved the sheen that this formula gave their lips, saying they found it to be a more flattering finish than traditional liquid lipsticks they’d tried.

The verdict

“Oh, I love this lipstick soooo much. I was given three different colors to trial. Revlon ColorStay Satin Ink Liquid Lipstick is a smooth all day liquid lipstick. It glides on smoothly!! And the colors are all sooooo beautiful.Best of all is it stays on for hours. It stayed on through eating and drinking. The satin finish was soft and the black currant seed oil and vitamin E kept my lips moisturized all day. I would definitely recommend this lipstick to anyone and I would definitely buy it again.”

“I love the formula of Revlon’s Satin Ink Lipcolor because it has all the benefits of a matte lipstick but gives you the comfort of a satin or cream formula with a nice shine. What impressed me the most is the comfort factor - this is a long wearing, transfer resistant liquid lipstick that actually feels good all day long thanks to the black currant seed oil and vitamin E ingredients. I didn’t experience any cracking or bleeding and it got me through a 9-hour day without having to reapply. Once applied the longer the colour sits on your lips the more matte it becomes but it still has a sheen to it which I personally loved. A wide selection of vibrant, weightless colours that are long wearing, have great definition and are very comfortable to eat, drink, work and play in.”

“I have fair skin, and find it difficult to find a truly wearable red lipstick and was delighted to be able to try the colour 'Fired Up'. The colour is a truly fiery red and suited my skin tone perfectly. The texture of the product is creamy and then it sets to a comfortable satin. The colour lasted all day - through coffee, lunch and afternoon tea. I would highly recommend the lip colours for those who want a high colour payoff and a long lasting finish. I will definitely repurchase.”
