Shade – Couture is a bright Pinkish red with fine shimmers to it. I was afraid when SA was swatching these lipsticks on my hand, since all of the them had fine shimmers and might have looked frosty on lips (Which I absolutely detest). But gladly the shimmer adds to the shine and glossiness and doesn’t look frosty whatsoever.Packaging – I find the packaging not-so-flattering, its almost identical to Revlon Photoready Concealers. The only positive is that in case you plan to buy more than one shade, you can easily identify shade from see-through plastic cap or the lower half of the lipstick which is matched with the color. Though Plastic transparent cap looks pretty fragile to me. Texture & Formula – Couture when swatched looked pretty sheer and almost reminded me of Revlon Balm Stains, but on lips it goes pretty opaque. This shade is very bright and delivers good color in single sweep. Formula feels soft and smooth, since it glides on almost like Revlon Lip butters, I liked how lustrous it looks initially. Then wait for 5 minutes and it turns absolutely matte, I wouldn’t say it had that ‘Suede’ feel to it, but yes it didn’t feel uncomfortable like the other long wearing lipsticks do.
Pigmentation – Pigmentation is good and varies from shade to shade. That’s how Couture Looks on me
Couture felt really moisturising and comfortable on lips for initial half to one hour. After an hour and some snacks, it started flaking and looked as if it was peeling off… it was Gone completely from the upper lip and whatever was left on the lower lip looked awful .. all crumbly. My husband told me that something has happened to your lipstick it looks ugly.. Yup he was right !
I tried it again on my exfoliated and well moisturised lips, but the result remained the same.. No matter how many times I applied it.. See how it looks after half an hour and some snacks ..
It leaves lips really dry and chapped ..
Why Revlon Why?? After Lip Butters and Balm Stains Why this disaster?? I am not sure if the issue is with this particular piece or entire range but I wouldn’t recommend this range to anyone. All in all a total disappointment..
