Hope you are enjoying the festive days! Wish you all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan. I am missing my brother as we haven’t celebrated Raksha Bandhan together since 4 years and it seems I would have to call him up on video call as usual 🙁 I hope we will celebrate this day together some day! Let’s move on to my topic, else I will feel nostalgic. Well, after reading about gorgeous red Revlon lipsticks on IMBB, I suddenly noticed the newly-added red Revlon lipstick in my vanity case which my mum-in-law had gifted me this vat savitri. It is a beautiful warm red lipstick – Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Really Red. Please read on further to know about “Revlon Really Red.”
She got it for Rs. 480 from Delhi, I can see $ 7.99 for 0.15 oz (4.2 g) in stores here.
- Ultra-creamy saturated lip color that delivers beautiful, lightweight matte color without any dryness, caking or fading.
- Straight from the Runway shades!
- Beautifully rich matte color glides effortlessly across lips.
- Suede-like, cushiony feel and with maximum color impact.
- Beautifully rich shades from nude to deepest berry.
This gorgeous matte lipstick comes in a classy black packaging with see-through top. It feels a little like MAC lipsticks 😛 It is non scented and seems travel friendly.
My Experience with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte – Really Red:
My mum-in-law got this gorgeous matte lipstick for me from Delhi a couple of months ago; however, she gifted it to me recently on vat savitri 😀 Personally, she owns many Revlon lipsticks in matte and creme range and I just love her collection, though I can only pull hardly 1-2 shades out of her treasure 😛 When she asked me to pick up my favourite shade of Revlon from her collection, I picked this red and other rosy mauve shades which suit me thankfully. Rest all shades compliment her better than me.
Well, this “Really Red” is a bright warm red shade which seems to be tomato red when applied on lips. This was my “love at first sight” lipstick and you all know my love for reds and pinks 😀 The moment I apply it on my lips, I notice a bright sheen on my face and I feel so refreshed and energetic. Surprisingly, I am not a fan of matte lipsticks, but this matte lipstick is not like others. It does gives matte finish, but I do not feel any dryness on my lips even after hours of wearing it on the lips.
Even it glides so easily on lips and gives buildable coverage in just one swipe. However, I swipe it twice for long lasting bright finishing as I love bold reds now. The texture does not seem creamy, but I wonder how it looks so juicy on the lips. I loved the finishing of this lipstick on my lips, not too dry, neither creamy. Even if it is a matte lipstick, it does not settle in fine lines, cool na?
I just miss the heavenly vanilla smell as it is totally odour free and I love scented goodies. The staying power is superb. It manages to stay on my lips intact for 5-6 hours and even after having meals and mouth gargles, it leaves behind a tomato red tint on lips which looks pretty okay. I feel this is the best matte Revlon lipstick I would repurchase.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte – Really Red:
- Warm tomato red matte shade.
- Glides like silk on lips without drying or bleeding.
- Feels light on lips.
- It does not seem cakey.
- Even after hours of application, it seems non drying.
- It is a matte shade, but looks slightly juicy on lips.
- Staying power is pretty good as compared to other drug store budget lipsticks.
- Looks classy and travel friendly.
- Non-scented goodie, might be great for sensitive noses.
Cons of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte – Really Red:
- For me, smell is the only con as I love scented goodies and this one is non scented 😛
Other than that, I do not think of any con in this wonderful lipstick. It is a must-try shade of red for newly weds and everyone actually. It will instantly brighten up the whole face giving a juicy sheen. I am considering it to be my favourite matte lipstick till date. I hope you will also think the same after using it. So gals, just visit your nearest store and swatch this gorgeous red lipstick.
