Revlon x Sofia Carson Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor Moisturizing Lipstick $9.99

Brand Description:

Sofia Carson’s favorite fierce reds and sultry nude matte lip colors.

There’s a matte red lipstick for every occasion, whether it’s classic red, cherry red, or berry-tinged wine. For everything else, a barely-there nude is perfect. To perform at her best, actress and singer Sofia Carson needs a high-performance lip color to match—precisely why she curated this limited-edition collection of vibrant liquid matte colors that outlast whatever life throws at you. The actress, singer, and newest Revlon brand ambassador even worked with us to create two limited edition shades in this collection, Obsession (her go-to nude) and The Sofia Red (her favorite red)

Sofia even worked with us to create two limited-edition nail colors: Obsessed, a classic shade of nude, and The Sofia Red, her signature bold red. These shades come in our newly improved formula that’s reinforced with ShadeLock Technology for color that stays glossy and true. Our ridge-filling complex creates a smooth look every time, while a chip-resistant film strengthens and protects your nails. Plus, no Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor. Nail it with Sofia Carson’s favorite nail colors (two of which she created), plus 64 more gorgeous nail polish colors in our collection

She even created the two limited-edition shades, Obsessed (her go-to nude) and The Sofia Red (her signature red). Light and creamy, this matte lipstick has all the dramatic colors you need, with none of the drag of other mattes. Our conditioning matte lipstick formula is infused with a luxurious botanical blend of agave, moringa oil, and cocoa butter to instantly smooth lips. Plus, the embossed bullet and luxurious matte tube are fit for royalty and now have Sofia Carson’s signature touch.
