Revlon HD Pink Sapphire Ultra HD Lip Lacquer
Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as an richly pigmented, lightweight, “never sticky” gloss with a “high-impact shine.” The best part about the gloss is that it delivers quite well on pigmentation, and they initially feel quite comfortable on with a creamy, almost gel-like quality to them. However, they get very tacky as they wear on, and the gloss itself is thicker. It’s not quite as thick as MAC Lipglass, but it is similarly tacky. I’m not keen on the brush-type applicator and feel like a doe-foot would have been better, as the strands of the brush tend to push the color outside the natural lip line and leave it looking slightly uneven (probably not noticeable from a normal viewing distance). They didn’t seem to have much of a scent, but in the tube, there was a very subtle sweetness. The formula is neither drying nor hydrating on me.
Revlon HD Pink Sapphire (520) Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium bubblegum pink with gold sparkle. It is very milky applied, and it was one of the lesser pigmented shades in the range with semi-sheer coverage. It settles into lip lines and is hard to get to look even, due to the milkiness. It lasted for three hours on me. MAC Pure Silliness (LE, $15.00) is less sparkly. Milani Pink Lady (07) (P, $5.49) is less sparkly. L’Oreal Florid Pink (LE, $7.99) is less glossy, darker, less sparkly. NYX Strawberry Parfait (P, $5.00) is less sparkly. NYX Merengue (P, $5.00) is lighter, less sparkly.

Revlon HD Petalite (540) Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium coral-pink with fine gold shimmer and a glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage (you can’t see my lip freckle for the most part) that goes on fairly evenly. The color wore well for four and a half hours on me. Dior Tiny Pink (269) (P, $35.00) NARS Stella (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter. NARS Orgasm (P, $26.00) is sheerer, warmer. NARS Super Orgasm (P, $26.00) is sheerer. Revlon Pinkissimo (P, $7.99) is sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Revlon HD Smoky Topaz (570) Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rosy beige with fine white shimmer.

MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is much lighter. MAC French Kiss (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. Maybelline Charming Cocoa (125) (LE) is less shimmery, darker. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery. MAC Calypso Beat (LE, $20.00) is lighter.
