Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Preview

I always have a ‘just in case I need it’ lipstick hanging out in my purse. The one that I have been using for the last 6 weeks has been Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Suede…



My ‘go to’ shade is ‘Preview’…

This is like a high-performance lip balm. It is ultra smooth and makes my lips feel hydrated and soft. Springtime is very dry in the Rockies. I feel it around the tops of my cheeks and my lips the most. It’s great to have a lipstick that has awesome moisturizers like Colorstay.

‘Preview’ is a shade that isn’t too mauve and isn’t too pink. It’s just right!


I found the wearability to be around 3 hours before a touch-up. I picked this up at Walgreen’s for $9.99 as part of a buy one get one 1/2 price, so it cost me $7.50. ย I think paying full price is a bit much at $10 for one. However, the quality is there and this color works any time for me. It’s like ‘my lips but better’ color.

Have you tried any of Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Suedes?

  • I agree that it suits you very well

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I love that shade. Does it have peppermint oil in the ingredient list?

    • I don’t know that it does. It doesn’t feel like it has any in it.

  • Norah Salazar

    I haven’t tried any of the Revlonโ€™s ColorStay Ultimate Suedes but I do love their Colorburst pencils.

    • I haven’t tried any of the pencils, myself.

  • This is really pretty! At that price point though I would expect more than three hours wear.

    • My lips have been dry so I think it probably could last longer for someone else.

    This is so pretty on you. ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t tried the ColorStay Suedes, yet.

    • They apply so smoothly. You’d like!

  • I wish I could wear these, my lips just dry out way too easily!

    • I can see how it could add to lip dryness.

  • Kelly R

    This looks wonderful on you!

  • BeautyJudy

    These totally didn’t work for me, but this looks FABO on you!!!!!

    • Oh, rats! That’s disappointing. ๐Ÿ™

  • Pretty! I have not tried any of them yet!

    • They have quite a few different colors and I bet you’d find several that you like.

  • That’s a great color – I’ve never tried these lippies but will put them on my “must try” list.

    • I’ll find at least two shades that you like, I’m sure!

  • I like the color on you.

    • Thank you! Those all purpose colors are the ones that get left in the purse for standby. LOL!

  • I love this color and Revlon is an amazing brand! 9.99 seems a bit expensive for drugstore so I will have to wait for a deal! Thanks for the swatches!

    • I was rather like ‘get outta here!’ with that price.

  • Noelle

    Very pretty. Looks gorgeous on you!

  • This shade looks great on you!

    • Thanks! I buddied up to it real fast!

  • Pretty shade!

  • cindyprimebeauty

    Great shade for everyday wear!

  • Amber

    I love that color. I’m all over pinky mauve shades!!

    • Those are my never fail shades too.

  • This shade is perfection on you!

  • Gorgeous color on that lovely face! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Love this lip color. I haven’t tried any of these suede lipsticks yet, they are $13 here. :/

    • Oh, dear! You have to pay for their Hawaiian vacation too. :/

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    Beautiful shade for Spring! I haven’t seen these yet!

    • I’ve had this one for quite a few months. I hope you can find them in person and see if you want one yourself.

  • Justina

    Very pretty on you!

  • Ange

    Gorgeous shade!

  • That is a really pretty shade of pink!

    • I bet you’d like this shade on yourself too.

  • Anastasia

    You’re right, it really does look.. “right”, not too juvenile, and not boring at all. A great color for your complexion!

    • I feel I have so many lippies of this shade already. However, this one I took to right off.

  • I tried these when they first came out and they were a bit drying. I received some new ones but haven’t had a chance to try them yet. Perhaps they’ve changed the formula!

    • Oh, that would be great if they did improve the formula. I didn’t find this one really drying. It was quite smooth. But, I’m wondering if some drying did effect how long it stayed on me.

  • Only one lippie in your purse? ONE? Well, if you’re only going to have one, that’s a great, versatile color.

    • Every once in a while, I’ll do a purse clean out and find four or five lipsticks I had forgotten to remove. However, this Suede is one that I remember I left in there intentionally. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I haven’t tried this yet but the color does suit you well!

  • kSquaredGlamour

    great shade of pink

    • It’s a very nice in the middle of the road shade.

  • Great color!

  • I haven’t tried these yet. For what they are full price might not be an option for me.

    • I justified the price by telling myself I was doing it for the blog. Hee hee!

  • I haven’t tried these yet but they look like a nice safe lipstick choice.

  • Betzy Carmona

    I haven’t tried them and I can’t any longer since I gave up revlon

  • Would love to try this but we don’t have it here in the Philippines. I also have dry lips so moisturizing lip colors are a must.
