REVIEW & SWATCHES: Revlon Lippies

Revlon Matte Lipsticks

(L-R) Nude Attitude, Pink Pout, Mauve it Over, Pink About It.


Color description according to Nee.
Nude Attitude: Peachy Nude with orange undertone
Pink Pout: Cool pale blue-pink
Mauve it Over: I always thought mauve was more of a greyish purple/pink color but the color of this lipstick is more of a muted pinky-brown. None of the less, this is my fav out of the bunch!
Pink About It: Bright watermelon red. Think 60's!


Overall Rating: 3/5 (in general)
Price:
$5-$8 CAD
Packaging: Sleek and practical!
Would you buy this again? I would only buy Mauve it Over again. The rest I can pass.

I'm sure you've heard all about the Revlon Matte Lipsticks already. Everyone has either tried Nude Attitude or Pink Pout-- a nude shade and a baby pink shade, how can one go wrong?

Well, here's my two cents on these lipsticks. The paler the lipstick, the more drying it is. Nude Attitude is unbelieving drying.. if you don't exfoliate or apply lip balm before putting these babies on, be prepared for nasty flaky lips! If you are one of the smart girls who did do this, you won't have any problems with these lipsticks. Top it off with some gloss and you're good to go! Btw, I'm one of the smart girls ;) Pics below to prove it!

Before:
After:
Top Row: Nude Attitude, Pink Pout
Bottom Row: Mauve it Over, Pink About It

One thing I love about these lipsticks is the pigmentation. I have super pigmented lips (brownish-pink) and these lipsticks are pigmented enough to provide an opaque application. Mauve it Over is my favorite because it gives me a "my lips but better" color and it's a great everyday lipstick paired with black eyeliner. It's moisturizing compared to Nude Attitude and Pink Pout. Pink About It is the creamiest which is a shame since I would never wear it out in public. It clashes with my skin tone!


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss

(L-R) Nude Lustre, Life's a Peach, Pink Whisper, Pink Pursuit, Cherries in the Glow

Overall Rating: 5/5 (in general)
Price:
$4-$8 CAD
Packaging: 5/5
Would you buy this again? Yes!

I've mentioned these before on my blog but never got around to swatching them. They are hands down the best drugstore lipsticks in my opinion. I love the color selection, the pigmentation, and the pretty sturdy packaging-- it has a twist click cap so you'll never have to worry about lipgloss leaking in your purse! I like CoverGirl Wetslicks Amazemint lipglosses too but the packaging is cheap and prone to product oozing. Below are swatches for your viewing pleasure :D

(L-R) Nude Lustre, Life's a Peach, Pink Whisper, Pink Pursuit, Cherries in the Glow

As you can see, they are thick! However, they are not that sticky and they go beautifully on top of the Revlon Matte Lipsticks. I used to pair Nude Attitude with Life's a Peach all the time before I started buying lipsticks. They all have shimmers in them (not chunky glitter that you can feel on your lips!) except for Cherries in the Glow which is just an opaque red color.

These are the only Revlon lippies I have. Actually, I had one super lustrous lipstick in Just Enough Buff but I threw it out to make space. It had no pigmentation and was hard as a rock. I tried to make it work but it proved to be unworthy. I didn't like any of the other colors I saw either.. do you have any recommendations?

Mauve It Over looks very nice when swatched but it doesn't show much on my very pigmented lips. :(

Shilka said...

wow, you are so lucky to get all those colors. In my country (Singapore) only 4 colors from the line have been introduced - and thankfully "mauve it over" is one of them. It's so perfect - I use it mostly as lip-gloss base tho xD

lempop said...

I've never bought any Revlon products before because they are a little pricey than other drugstore brands. However, I did have a few £2 off voucher and I wanted to get a new lipgloss so I read reviews about the Super Lustrous lippies and bought two in Coral Reef and Nude Lustre. They are fab! My natural lips are pigmented (pinky brown) and it's hard to find a decent lipgloss that will 'conceal' it lol. Nude Lustre is now my 'everyday lippy' and the colour is rich and very pigmented. Don't really need a lipstick, however I did wear it with my Rimmel Lasting Finish lippy in Birthday Suit. They go well together:)

teddy Lee said...

hi do u have facebook?

korilakkuma24 said...

I recommend 'Peach Petal' from the Super Lustrous range. It's an easy to match nudey pink, also one of my favourite lipglosses! :)
