Comments about Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick, Silhouette, .09 oz:
This is an excellent semi-matte, long-lasting lipstick if you want something that takes a little longer to apply but lasts, literally, all day.
The lipstick dries and sets in 5-10 minutes, becoming a little tight on your lips, but not unbearable, in my opinion, and I have dry skin and lips. The finish you get from this is very close to a velvet or almost matte texture, and does feel a little tacky, but really does not move hardly at all and lasts without touch-ups.
You are going to want to start with exfoliating your lips really well and moisturizing them with a glycerin or silicone-based moisturizer or primer to even out any lines in your lips and add a little moisture under the lipstick. Leaving flaky bits on your lips or leaving off the primer leads to the lipstick clinging unevenly to your lips and causes disaster.
Absolutely take the extra time to start out with clean, moisturized/primed lips before you try this! Also, carefully apply the lipstick because it does stain your lips, and once it sets it won't move without a make-up remover. I usually apply 2-3 coats at the beginning of the day to get really pigmented color and only have to touch-up once right after lunch. (It's not completely food-proof, but it's pretty darn close as long as you're not eating anything really greasy.) I've even forgotten about it and gone to bed without removing it, woken up, and still had perfect lipstick.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
