Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red

I've been after a proper matte red lipstick for a little while now, I wanted one that was genuinely matte and not too expensive as it's not that often that I rock a red lip.  I also wanted the 'right' kind of red - some of the ones I saw were too orange or leaned towards pink, which isn't what I wanted.  I came across these Revlon Matte Lipsticks during a bit of blog reading so went to check them out.

They're obviously popular because some of the nude and pink colours had sold out, I'd have liked to have tried them too but there's time for that I suppose.   A red what was I wanted and a red is what I got.  This is the perfect retro, classic red.  The matte finish is absolutely gorgeous but it definitely means you need to be spot on with your application, it's probably a lip pencil job here.

I just love it, it looks really glamorous and is exactly what I wanted.  I'm going to wear this on my next night out, it's a high impact look but with proper lashes and liner on it looks amazing.  The matte finish doesn't look dry but I'd still say to make sure your lips are moisturised well and in good condition.  It lasts ok, I do need to reapply if I've been eating/drinking etc but it does stay put fine.
Available from, currently on buy one get one half price.


  1. Love the colour, I was expecting a bright red colour, but this one is nice and "toned down". I'd get it, but my mum isn't keen on bright lipstick :(



  2. I love this colour, i think the Revlon Lipsticks are as good as Mac :) x

    1. Oooh, that's a bold statement! :-) The only thing about MAC for me is that they seem to do colours that just aren't replicated anywhere else, I've tried to find a cheaper dupe for Chatterbox so many times and other than YSL I haven't got one yet...Revlon is impressing me though!

  3. Hmmm....I think I wanna try out this color. It looks so daring and sexy. This will be my next target lippie.

  4. It's such a lovely rich colour. I've never been able to wear red (or never dared to!) The finish is really nice. I hate those horrible shiny lip colours! Matt is the way to go.


Thank you for commenting, I read them all!
