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.
