Revlon ColorStay Ultimade Suede

So I've heard bad news on this from my beauty blogger friends but I will not dwell on its stickiness or drying effect but on its texture.

Suede as Revlon defined is a modern matte. In fabrics, suede is leather with a soft napped surface that is like velvet. Velvet is defined as a soft fabric, such as silk, rayon, or nylon, having a smooth, dense pile and a plain underside. Basically, the texture is quite the same, something soft but matte. Below is a sample of suede fabric.
(-) Nonetheless, as per swatch below of two pink shades, Revlon Ultimate Suede is not really true to its texture. While it is for the moisture and softness, it's not matte because it has a combination of semi-sheen, semi-metallic finish (notice how the flash catches the light). This one shows matte (MAC), and it's not even close to a velvet matte like Nars'

(-) While after hours it becomes more matte, it becomes ultra sticky which might have been the side effect of trying to create a texture that's matte suede

(+) Long-lasting
(+) I love the variety of colors
(+) Great packaging too and cap doesn't slip away
