I got a chance to sample the Revlon metallic ultra HD matte lip color . The color I received was a dark blue color. The packaging is amazing the size is slim and fit nicely in my Purse and my pocket. Applicator is easy to use and the lip color goes on smoothly. It stays on well, long lasting through food and drinks ! Love it! I have always been picky when it comes to lipstick. That being said, I truly believe this is worth the money. I wear this dark color when I decide to have a gothic look lol Which is usually to work and usually only have to touch it up after I eat. Very long lasting and the color stays vibrant and matte. Color is exactly what is displayed on the page for my computer. My only complaint is a bit of a good thing, be careful as you apply it and if you go past where you want, instantly wipe that spot as it does stain for awhile after. I find the applicator to be very easy to use but on occations and for touch ups I do use my lipstick brush to get very fine lines.
