Revelique Long Lasting Lipcream in Vintage

12/26/2012



These past few months I've been more experimenting with make-up and I've been getting acquainted with different colors, textures, pigmentation and getting waaay out of my comfort zone. On a daily basis, I'm definitely a lipgloss kind of girl. My lipsticks are mostly red and vibrant so I choose to use them at night or for special occasions. Now I'm using something that's a cross between a lipstick and has a shine of a lipgloss but is very creamy. I'm referring to Revelique Long Lasting Lipcream in Vintage(20) which is my first lipcream. The packaging is minimalistic but looks rather nice in person. The only odd thing about this lipcream is the wand. It's completely plastic! It doesn't look like a plastic tip but when you press it on the lips you can definitely feel it. I cannot wonder why they chose to go all plastic? The soft doe tip would be a perfect solution and it would have made the application much more enjoyable. If it had that soft tip, it would be a full 10/10!

Posljednjih mjeseci malo eksperimentisem sa sminkom i upoznajem se sa drugacijim bojama, teksturama, pigmentacijom i generalno izlazim van svoje sigurne zone. Sto se svakodnevne kozmetike tice, skroz sam vjerna sjajilima za usne. Moji ruzevi su vecinom u jarkim tonovima crvene i koristim ih po noci ili za posebne prilike. Trenutno koristim nesto izmedju ruza za usne a sto ima sjaj sjajila za usne i jako je kremasto. Sve napisano se odnosi na Revelique dugotrajni tecni ruz u nijansi Vintage(20) koji je ujedno i moj prvi tecni ruz/ krema za usne. Pakovanje je minimalisticno ali djeluje jako lijepo uzivo. Jedina cudna stvar kod ovog tecnog ruza je njegov aplikator. U potpunosti je plastican! N prvu ne izgleda kao da je citav od plastike ali kada njime pritisnete usne definitivno se osjeti razlika. Ne mogu a da se ne zapitam zasto je odabrana bas ova opcija? Mekani, zakrivljeni spuzvasti vrh bi bio savrseno rjesenje i ucinio bi koristenje mnogo prijatnijim. Samo da ima mekani vrh, dala bih mu ciste savjesti 10/10!


This lipcream itself is pretty amazing. It is of a very thick and creamy texture which feels nice on the lips. It's extremely pigmented and completely gives an opaque color to the lips. It covered my lips 100% and I have naturally red lips which is amazing. It seems to be matte at first but has a delicate shine to it. Not that wattery shine but a creamy one, if it makes any sense. It has an old-school smell which isn't particularly bothering but I would like it to be completely non-scented. The greatest thing about it is the longetivity. It can literally hold on to your lips for hours and hours! I'd say that for more than four hours it will cling on your lips and look freshly applied. After that time wear was noticeable. I think that if you pair it with a lipliner, you can easily get five to six hours out of it. It's completely satisfactory regarging how long lasting it is and I think that there aren't many drugstore products similar to this one or its quality.

Ovaj tecni ruz sam po sebi je nevjerovatno dobar. Veoma je guste i kremaste konzistencije koja je veoma ugodna na usnama. Izuzetno je pigmentisan i pruza potpuno pokrivanje usana. Moje su prirodno prilicno crvene i prekrio ih je 100% sto je izvrsno. Na pocetku djeluje kao mat ali ima neki njezan sjaj. Nije u pitanju onaj vodenasti sjaj vec kremasti, ako ovo ima smisla. Mirise po starinskoj kozmetici i taj miris nije napadan ali bi bilo bolje da uopste nema mirisa. Najbolja stvar kod ovog tecnog ruza je njegova dugotrajnost. Bukvalno se drzi na usnama satima i satima! Procijenila bih da se na mojim usnama zadrzao vise od cetiri sata i svo to vrijeme je izgledao kao svjeze nanesen. Nakon toga je poceo blijediti. Mislim da kada bih ga sparila sa olovkom za usne, ma sigurno bih izvukla pet-sest sati iz njega. U potpunosti je zadovoljavajuci po pitanju trajnosti i mislim da nema mnogo slicnih proizvoda po dm-u ili cm-u koji bi mu mogli parirati niti njegovoj kvaliteti.


I own in in this flesh tone shade (Vintage) but I am interested to try Frappe (pinky hue) and Affaire (wild berry shade) as well. I would like to also pay attention to how non-sticky this formula is. It's quite amazing how much color you get from this product and there are no sticky lips. It's also very moisturizing (it contains jojoba oil, almond oil and Vitamin E) but I'd advise you to prep your lips before so you can get the maximum wear out of it and looking fresh all that time. It's free from parabens and PEG. Available only in Bosnia and Herzegovina for approx 6$.

Posjedujem ovaj tecni ruz u roskastoj boji mesa (Vintage) ali sam zainteresovana i za isprobavanje Frappe (ruzicasta boja) i Affaire (nijansa divljeg bobicastog voca). I voljela bih skrenuti paznju na to kako uopste nije ljepljiv. Prilicno je nevjerovatno kakvo intenzivno prekrivanje pruza i uopste ne lijepi usne. Takodjer je i njegujuci prema usnama (sadrzi ulje badema i jojobe te vitamin E) ali bih preporucila da barem malo pripremite usne prije nanosenja ovog tecnog ruza kako bi mogi da iz njega izvucete maksimum i da pri tome usne djeluju svjeze i njegovano. Ne sadrzi parabene niti PEG. Dostupan je samo u BiH (i to u odabranim cm-ovima sirom BiH) i kosta 8,80KM.


EDIT: 
After a while the tip loosened up and it actually turned out to be a regular one, not the plastic one I thought! This was an interesting and useful "discovery" since the only thing I thought this lipcream lacked was the unfortunate plastic tip and I'm thrilled that now I own a perfect lipcream. Flaw scratched. The second interesting thing is how long it actually took me to realise the true nature of the tip. One might think I wasn't paying enought attention but from the start I was vigorously trying to soften it, wiped it clean more than once and observed it and it really did seem like it was a plastic extension of the wand. After more than 2 months of using it I've noticed that it went softer on my lips and voila! The bristles were there and I stud there in awe. It seems that the nylon bristles were glued super, super, extra tight. Who would have known?

Nakon nekog vremena aplikator se omeksao i ispalo je da je rijec o sasvim regularnom aplikatoru a ne o plasticnom kao sto sam mislila! Ovo mi je skroz interesantno i korisno "otkrice" posto je jedina zamjerka koju sam imala na ovaj tecni kremasti ruz bio taj nesretni plasticni aplikator te sam potpuno odusevljena sto se ispostavilo da posjedujem savrseno dobar proizvod. Mana je prekrizena. Druga interesantna stvar je koliko mi je ustvari vremena trebalo da shvatim od cega je aplikator napravljen. Netko bi mogao jos i pomisliti da nisam obratila paznju ali istina je da sam od pocetka uporno pokusavala da ga omeksam. Obrisala sam ga vise nego jednom i bas studiozno promatrala te je uistinu djelovao kao plasticni nastavak stapica. Tek nakon vise od 2 mjeseca koristenja sam primjetila da je postao njezniji i voila! Dlacice su bile i vise nego vidljive a ja sam ostala bas u soku. Izgleda da su najlonske dlacice bile bas, bas jako zalijepljene. Ko bi rekao?

  1. Lijepo izgleda, točno se vidi kako je fino gust i kremast. Šteta za aplikator.. Pitam se ima li cm u B.Brodu, jel znaš možda?

    1. Jos cu ja postaviti slike kako izgleda na usnama, stvarno na to nisam stigla.
      Ma odlican je u svakom slucaju, a ko zna, mozda izmijene aplikator.
