Kapan lagi Rosa ngereview lipstik. Dunia ini kayaknya udah kebalik-balik.
Anyhow. I bought this piece after I watched this video, which successfully tempts me buy this Revlon Colorstay Overtime 16h. I already have L’Oreal Infallible lip 24h 507 Relentless Rouge (in Kruidvat, a nearby drugstore) and Maybelline Superstay 24h 585 Burgundy (in bol.com) and the vid review corresponds correctly to my experience using those, so I thought I’d give this Revlon a chance. And btw I’m a big fan of BuzzFeed (the video is from them) – if you don’t feel like watching video, here’s the article.
So, within minutes after watching the vid, I bought the Revlon Colorstay Overtime. It took me minutes to choose the color, Eternally Tan, because I have no brown-ish longwear lipstick (the only one I have & I love the color is from Hema and it is like everywhere in my cups etc). Oh well, really, that’s a quick one, because usually I spent hours roaming in drugstore comparing colours, and after buying that I think there might be a better color 😛 but whatever. I found out that they don’t sell the lipstick in Netherlands, so I had to buy it from USA. I went to eBay.com and choose one; I think it costs about $14 and I paid with PayPal (Btw, eBay and PayPal now separate their way apart so eBay will ask you whether you’d like to pay with PayPal or not. Usually it’s automatic).
A few days later (a day before my performance!) the package came! Yays. So I tested the long-wear of that lipstick on the day of my performance. I applied the lipstick in the morning (about 9.15 am) and this is how it looks like on 8.30pm (~11h after). Btw, since it’s too brown-y, I mix it with my L’Oreal Relentless Rouge. Here’s how I look like: 1st pic is in my apt stairs and 2nd pic is in my room 😛 *excuse to take selfies*
Btw, I’m too used to my L’Oreal infallible which make my lips feel dry, and I kinda don’t like this because it makes my lips feel sticky. I mean, it’s a good thing that my lips are hydrated (especially in this winter weather), but I need time to get used to. I didn’t notice whether it leaves trail on my food, but that 8:30pm look survives some Indonesian food: siomay, greasy-and-oily fried chicken, and sweet martabak.
More brown, rightttt. And need a redder lipstick since I wear red scarf & skirt, but don’t want to make it super-red.
Anyway (again), I haven’t tested this lipstick if it’s date-night-proof (euphemism for boyfriend-proof?) (nah, boyfriend-proof is still euphemism). But, definitely, the Maybelline Superstay isn’t boyfriend-proof, trust me. Lol. I kinda don’t like that, it’s overpriced for something that won’t last for long and super hard to apply (actually that’s because I have the highly-pigmented dark color, which needs a more careful application compared to the more natural color).
