Revlon Matte Lipstick Twinkled Mauve : Review, swatches
This is my first lipstick in matte from Revlon and on the whole too I just have some 5 lipsticks from Revlon considering my huge collection.i paid some 500 odd rupees for this and I don’t think I got value for money for this product and the brand. But I am too floored by the color of this one and so I may give it some benefit of doubt to this one.
Revlon has many variants of their lipsticks like matte, velvet touch, plump, lustrous some glosses too. The colorburst ones are the recent craze. But I fell for this color as im moving more towards nudes these days. First off when I read mauve and that too twinkled I thought this would be a frosty shimmery lipper . On a closer look I saw that it’s a matte lipstick :/ when I swathed it I saw that this is almost a nude soft brown plus pink matte lipper and the tube has ribbons of mild golden shimmer in it . Wow! I mean I don’t have a matte lipstick with shimmer in I mean perhaps here the formula is mattifying(and drying too) but its definitely not a matte matte kind of lipstick, it has an edge over other lippies with the ribbons of gold in the pink brown color and it gives a sheen of gold to the final finish . It is not really a mauve but somewhere between a mix of pink and brown .One swipe comes out all nudey for me but in four swipes the gold sheen is mildly visible and the lippy is more like brown then .
About my experience with the lipstick:
So far so good the lipstick is matte nude with a gold sheen the formula at first application is smooth but not creamy.granted it’s a matte lippy. The formula is staying but doesn’t set on the lips like the nine to five from lakme(not that I want it too) after an hour or so my lips started drying so much and remember I had some four swipes of this one. by the time night fell I was wearing it close to seven hours the color of the lipstick had stayed put but with the passage of time the formula had become drier and drier on my lips so much so that I wanted the lipper to be off my lips and I was craving for a lip balm. Usually I never have dry lips ever and so I love matte creamy lipsticks. But this was bad, the formula was so drying after a while that I dint care if the color had stayed on me for seven hours but my lips were parched with all the color accumulated in the wrinkles of the lips. Wonder what would happen with dry lips and lips with fine lines
Another thing I wanna point out about this one is that I found the packaging to be very cheap and the label at the base looked like some local lipstick sticker(yes I do judge products according to the label on them )I did not find the packaging any different than the cheaper branch of Revlon “streetwear” just the pricing was different . Revlon and streetwear both surprise me always with their cheap quality and high pricing.
The color is GORGEOUS in every way. It’s a pretty nude brown pink shade with a mild sheen of gold and its matte lipstick . But it’s a very very very drying lipstick. It is hell for dry lips. I never ever have dry lips but this lipstick made me realise what it is to have dry lips. I don’t wanna work with the color with a balm etc because im just so put off. The pricing is not at all justified (rs 480)I love matte nude lipsticks but still would not prefer this drying formula.if I use a balm it wont be as matte and then it defeats the whole purpose of a matte lippy!
