Smooch Me Sunday # 1 Revlon Ulta HD, Petunia

I get asked quite often what lipstick I'm wearing when I post photos, so I thought I'd start a series where I review a different lipstick every (most) Sunday.

My first lippy of choice is Petunia by Revlon. This is part of Revlon's Ultra HD Lipstick collection - all of them are named after flowers which is pretty cute!

According to the website these lipsticks consist of a "unique, wax-free gel forumla for vivid colour in one smooth swipe."




My thoughts

Pros 

I love the colour of this! The pigmentation is brilliant, you really do only have to apply it once to get a bold, pretty lip. I also love the smell of it, it's really fruity and it was an effort not to lick it all off! It was also easy to remove, just a swipe of a make up wipe and it was gone and I liked the way it didn't dry out my lips.

Cons

This is a messy lipstick. You can tell it has a different formula to most lipsticks, because it's a bit more...smudgy if that makes sense! You can even see by the photos that it's already smeared all over the tube it comes in! For someone like me who is already generally a bit clumsy this isn't ideal, infact I somehow managed to get it on my top when I was taking the photos of it. (Idiot!) I also don't really like the tip of it, I'm a sucker for the traditional point in my lipsticks, so it took a bit of getting used to.



The Scores (All out of 10)

Pigmentation - 9

Staying power -6
Ease of Application -5
How much I enjoyed wearing it - 6

I added that last category just because sometimes a lipstick can have the worst staying power and application process ever, but you still love wearing it because it's just so damn pretty!

Petunia gets a grand total of 26/40. I'll start a leader board when I review more, seems a bit redundant doing it with just one!

Have you tried any of Revlon's Ultra HD lipsticks? Let me know how you got on!
