MY TAKE: I am happy with the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate SuedeTM Lipstick. It is much more moisturizing than its predecessors. I do think that the addition of the shea butter is a good touch, as it is a good humectant and moisturizer. The lip area is hard to keep moisturized. The colors in the line are somewhat muted compared to other lipsticks and lip glosses, that may be due to something that happens with the pigments and the ColorStayTM process. Revlon has a whole line with this technology and every year they seem to be getting better at each type of product. I do think the lipsticks are almost as good as the foundations (which ROCK). I wore this lipstick while eating breakfast. And the majority of it stayed on (as you can see from the photos above), that is pretty good! I also like the fact that these newer lipsticks are much glossier than their older counterparts. In general I think they are a good buy if you like longer wearing lipsticks. If you are going to be eating oilier or stickier foods you may still have to watch out, but I think that will be true of any lipstick and always will be. With normal use this lipstick will wear to the full 16 hours.
