Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks + Swatches
Here's a review on Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks in HD Magnolia, HD Gladiolus, HD Iris, and HD Hydrangea.
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Revlon counters
Wax is an important ingredient in lipstick because it holds everything else together (pigments and the rest of the lippie's ingredients) and prolongs its wear time. Unfortunately, it can induce dryness and this is true for me and matte lipsticks. :/ And oh, it is not only matte lipstick that contains wax, fyi-satin and even some glossy lippies contain traces of wax too.
Is there such a thing as Wax Sensitivity? I don't know, but what I know is not everyone can tolerate this ingredient on the lips. This beauty issue has inspired Revlon to create Ultra HD Lipstick, a new generation of lipstick that is absolutely free of wax yet feels nothing short of a lipstick! HA! In your face, wax!

Ultra HD Lipstick's hues are named after and inspired by flowers-it's just perfect that they released the line this Spring/Summer season. :)

REVLON ULTRA HD LIPSTICK IN ACTION
- A creamy Beige shade with a pale coral undertone.
Oh, what a pretty nude! I always seem to find a pretty Nude in almost all of Revlon's lipstick lines, therefore I conclude they make some of the best nude lipsticks ever. HD Magnolia is the perfect marriage of coolness and warmth, thus it looks good on almost any skin tone in my opinion. I also like that it's not a flat nude, but rather a blushing nude.
- A tropical Pink shade.
HD Hydrangea is a bold lippie that I'd love to wear in the beach, specifically during sunset cocktails. It's a fun, sunny Pink and I'd gladly swap my HG reds for this just for this season. ;)
- A glowing, true Red shade
I just researched what Gladiolus is and found out that it's an Orchid- like flower-it comes in a lot of colors, but Red is the most striking of them all: it's glowing, fresh, and strong, just like this lipstick shade!
- A Plum-Berry hue.
This shade reminds me of a bowl of fresh Berries. :D HD Iris is your good ol' Berry shade that works for night time, every single time.
These lippies have a buttery texture, pigmentation is medium to heavy, and dress lips in hydrating color. They have this uniform creamy Mango butter scent that's a tad bit strong in the beginning, but dies down gradually during wear and eventually becomes tolerable-for those who prefer unscented lipsticks, sorry to say, but these lippies will stay fragrant the whole time. Finish is satin and despite the wax- free formula, the colors are vivid and true. It has okay staying power and does not fade that quickly, unless you're eating something really, really oily. :p
The only caveat is the lipstick leaves a slight taste in the mouth--at least the taste is sweet, but I prefer to not taste and eat my lipstick thank you very much. :) Honestly, Ultra HD is another set of balmy lipsticks, but what makes it stand out are: 1.) It's more pigmented than similar lippies by other brands. 2.) Revlon meant it when they said that it's hydrating. 3.) It feels 'nice' on the lips.
I deem Ultra HD Lipstick a 'Summer Lipstick Range' because it's super lightweight, has a tropical scent, and provides ample moisture to keep your lips from drying out in the hot weather. I also deem it as the 'Lipstick For Dry Lips' because it's wax- free and won't dry out your lips-ever.
