Revlon Really Red

Valentines Day is approaching and I thought I would take this opportunity to showcase some of my favourite non-budging lip products. Most will be matte I’ll warn you in advance but from experience matte products just wear better and you have a lot less chance of smudging! Today’s lip is courtesy of Revlon, funny story behind it actually, I was watching an episode of Audrina (as you do) and she had on this matte red lip and I couldn’t believe how different she looked. She was tanned with not too much eye makeup and these gorgeous red lips, I set out on a mission to find something similar and this is what I came home with.

The photo above is not of aforementioned makeup, it is purely to represent Audrina for those of you who have no idea who I’m talking about

As with most matte products I do find it a touch drying and it does cling to imperfections on the lips but boy does it last and I just find the impact to be so much more dramatic than a regular glossy red lip, don’t you? This is actually the only matte lipstick I own (got you wondering about the rest now haven’t I?!) but I would buy more from this range, I just think I’d stick with the brights as the paler matte shades can be a bit blah on pale skin.

Revlon Really Red available online here £7.49

    The color is lovely and would be great for Valentine’s Day. However, its drying factor will bother me :O(

    I love matte lipsticks! This is a really pretty red. Especially for valentines day. Not got myself a revlon lip product yet but this could be a contender 🙂

    I’m trying to venture out & ditch the natural/mauve lipstick for all different colors. So far I’m really enjoying red but the bleeding frightens me. I’ll definitely be trying this.

    P.S. A great matte red is CoverGirl Hot Passion
