Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick – A Matte Lipstick That Doesn’t Dry Your Lips!
By Tanya Sharma
Red lips! Why was a song made on Sunny Leone’s pink lips when red lips are like the “it” thing? Red is the most attractive color according to men, it is said that there is no color like red which attracts men. In my opinion, there is nothing like food which gathers the attention of the XY gender. 😛 So ladies, pucker up and flaunt those luscious red lips and let the world stop and admire you open mouthed. PS- If you ever need a script writer for advertisements, let me know. I’ll be happy to help.
Okay, so red lipstick! A lot of women tend to stay away from red lip colors because they are apprehensive that it would not suit them. Let me tell you one thing, red lips suit all and yes literally each and every woman with any type of skin tone looks amazing with red lips. From fair to medium to dark, be it any undertone color. It is like potato, goes with everything. Sorry for that uncalled for reference, my love for food is eternal. Okay so read on and see how I feel about this lip color from Revlon.
My Experience with Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick:
Let’s talk about how the packaging is identical to that of MAC lipsticks, maybe that’s why they changed it. Revlon might not be up for facing the flack for copying MAC’s signature lipstick design. I own this particular lipstick in the old packaging but the product however remains the same. The pigmentation is really good and glides on smoothly without any trouble that some matte lipsticks tend to give.
Does it dry your lips? No! Yayyyyy! I have tried a bunch of different matte lipsticks and they all dried my lips even though I exfoliated my lips before putting them on, and my lips are good to me at least for 2-3 days, but those particular ones dried my lips the moment I took them off. This one is different, it is not going to dry your lips one bit. To be honest when I put it on for the first time, I did not realize that it was a matte lipstick texture wise, this was a gift by the way. I realized it was a matte lipstick only later and I was quite impressed by its performance in that department.
Staying power is really nice. It stays on for 3-4 hours and more if you’re not eating anything in between. However, I’m a true blue Punjabi and I’m constantly eating something or the other all the time and still it did not disappoint me. Brownie points! 😀
Yays for Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick:
- Well pigmented.
- Does not dry your lips post application.
- A variety of shades available.
- Long wearing.
- Smooth application.
Nays for Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick:
- Packaging is meh. Nothing too cute, but I guess they’re changing, so that’s good.
- I did not like this particular shade much. It’s too sober for me, I like deep hues or bright colors but that’s a just a personal opinion. Don’t get me wrong though, this one is bright enough for many I guess 😛
Would I Repurchase Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick?
It is not available in India I guess. Even though I really like this one, I would like to try out different products, so maybe not.
Do I Recommend Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick?
If you spot this one, I would recommend that you give this a shot and it is pretty economical as well. It is a good lipstick, but let me remind you, it is good not GREAT.
