The other day I was at Shopper’s Stop checking out some clothes when I noticed a new display at the Revlon counter. Yes, the Ultra HD Matte Liquid Lipcolors are here and available in 8 shades. I had a mild heart attack when the guy at the counter said that these are priced at Rs 1195. My immediate reaction was WTH! I’ll just pay Rs 250 more and get a MAC lipstick. But again, the packaging and the shades looked pretty, this was a new range and they were also giving a CCD voucher for 6 free capuccinos or tropical icebergs to be redeemed over a period of three months. So, I went ahead and bought the shade Passion and technically paid around Rs 400 for the lipstick (6 Tropical Icebergs cost Rs 804 :D)
The packaging is quite fancy. The lipstick comes in a red pouch with the product name printed on it. The tube itself has a flat round shape (the Chambor matte liquid lipstick packaging is very similar) and there is a sponge applicator inside. When you open the cap, you will be hit with a very strong and synthetic vanilla milkshake type smell so be aware if you have a sensitive nose. I wish Revlon toned down the smell a few notches because it is just way too strong. Thankfully, the smell subsides in a few minutes.
