With all of the beauty products on the market, it's hard to sift through the noise and find one actually worth trying. When we heard about Revlon's Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish, we were excited to test it out for ourselves. It delivers high shine with intense color, a precise application, and comes in twelve bold colors. Whether you know much about makeup or not, those aren't exactly easy things to deliver on.
To put the lip polishes to the test, we solicited the opinions of some of Highsnobiety's most discerning staffers. Here's what they had to say.
Shannon Gruda, Senior Event Producer
Favorite color: Cherry on Top
What I like about it: I love that the line offers a variety of bold colors that can be mixed or layered depending on your mood.
How I'd wear it: I’d pair the red lip with minimal, natural eye and face makeup for a night out with friends.
Favorite lip beauty tip: Lip color is versatile – use it as a cream blush or as eye color.
Julianne LaSorsa, HR Manager
Favorite color: Date Night
What I like about it: What I like about the Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish is the shine it gives to my lips. It is a product that wears well and felt very moisturizing on my lips – I found that the color did not bleed, which is a big plus!
How I'd wear it: I tend to wear more matte colors during the day, but since this product gives some shine it is perfect for some afterwork drinks when you want to add a little extra pop to your look.
Favorite lip beauty tip: For colors that run, line the outside of your lips to stop it from running.
Caiti McCormick, Social Media Editor
Favorite color: Birthday Suit
What I like about it: I like how saturated and consistent the color is. The formula itself is also moisturizing, which can be a hard combo to nail down. It’s a constant battle to discover a nice color that is equally nourishing. Makes for a solid find to not have to sacrifice hydration (and vice versa).
How I'd wear it: I don’t personally wear a lot of makeup so I would wear as a sprinkle-on-top addition to a natural/fresh face, for a pop of color. I also recommend throwing this on any day you need a boost. Dress to play the part kind of vibe. However, I digress and must say that Birthday Suit is an easy everyday mood to subscribe to.
Favorite lip beauty tip: Drink more water! Chapped lips, more often than not, = thirsty lips. Use a daily nighttime lip mask and hit them with an exfoliating lip sugar once a week.
