Revlon Matte Lipstick -Fabulous Fig

Revlon Matte Lipstick -Fabulous Fig

Price: Rs.525/4.2 grams

Today, I am sharing a shade with you ladies, a lipstick, which I have procured with great difficulty. I say this because I fell for this shade on the net, and then I looked for it in stored where I could see what it looks like actually. But surprisingly, I think this shade went so popular apparently, it was out of stock everywhere I went.

I have a couple of other Revlon Matte lipsticks which I have a mixed opinion on. I find some of them are hard, some very soft and this one particularly is extremely soft. I would compare this one to Chambor powder mattes in terms of thick texture.


I adore this lippy because I love brick reds, I love warm reds and reds too. I think this one is a perfect warm brick red and this can be toned down. So this is a great toned down red for most of us who wont venture into reds headlong.


The lipstick is very smooth, matte and creamy. It goes on soft matte and not the dry kind of matte we picture, hence it wont look such a stark red. It does not stain or bleed and stays on for around four hours  on me easily.

Issue about this one is that some might find it a little heavy or a little dry after a while, this is what happens with some of my matte lipsticks, they start to feel a bit dry in a while . Hence I suggest, use lip balm and let it settle a bit and then apply this with a brush , like I have. Otherwise it might settle in fine lines and look cakey. Also, avoid blotting an layering this lipstick on.So far, I have used it well and did not face dryness or caking.

Last  word:

I believe this is old stock that I luckily found in Shopper’s stop. I love this shade and I am looking for back-ups. The texture is unlike my other Revlon matte ones. It is a soft, creamy, toned down brick red, so try and find this beauty.
