Lip Color of the Day: Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick, Top Tomato

Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick Top Tomato swatch

Red lipstick! I was terrified of it for years, partially out of the fear that I’d choose the wrong shade and look ridiculous, and partially out of the fear that even the right shade would look ridiculous on me, like a little kid playing dress-up with Mommy’s makeup. Well, I am a mommy now, and I’m definitely too old to look like a little kid under any circumstances, so here’s a red lip.

(Updated with slightly better lip swatch pics.)

Mostly natural light. Excuse my sorry application. I haven’t found a good liner to match this yet.

In bathroom lighting. I can never get over how much of a difference lighting makes to the way colors look.

What it looks like. When I bought it, I didn’t pay enough attention and thought it was a gloss. Oh well.

Quick tip: If you’re applying with the doe foot applicator that comes with the tube, wipe off most of the product on the applicator before putting it on your lips, and apply in thin layers to build intensity. They’re not kidding when they call it ColorSTAY. Once it sets, this lip color lasts forever. I’ve worn it from morning to night with very little fading or flaking, and I usually remove it by massaging (for a while) with a tiny dab of my cleansing balm. It doesn’t come off with normal wear or washing.

What lip color are you wearing today?
