Revlon Retro Red 004 Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Review

Hi everyone,

I am reviewing one more shade from the “Super Lustrous Matte” range; read on to know more on the shade “Retro Red.” This is one of the few newly-launched shades by Revlon.

My Experience with Revlon Retro Red 004 Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick:

“Retro Red” comes in bullet shape with typical Revlon black body and gold band packaging. The top is transparent and that gives you a hint about the shade inside. At the bottom, a golden color sticker mentions the shade name and number.


It is a super creamy lipstick which is a rich mature shade of red. The sticker mentions it is a matte finish and I am in love with the creamy matte textured lip colors lately. The pigmentation is great and only one swipe of the lipstick gives enough coverage to conceal pigmentation on the lips, if any.

This shade is a gorgeous warm-toned red; quite a common red I would say, but the texture is so nice; it adds to the beauty of the shade. It looks so glam and rich, that it can be easily worn to parties, keeping the rest of the makeup minimal. It is that ideal warm-toned red that we warm toned people look for 😛 I love the shade, but again, it is nothing unique.

The staying power is great, it goes on creamy matte without drying the lips for around 5 hours, after which the lips start to feel a bit dry, but a dab of lip balm can take care of that issue. You can totally skip the lip liner looking at the texture and pigmentation of the shade. I really like this new creamy matte formula with an affordable price tag. Good job Revlon!
