Hello lovely beauties,
this week I have discovered Revlon Matte Lipsticks, and I am loving them.
I have purchased two this week and am planning on a few more shades to add to my collection.
With all Revlon packaging it is sleek and sturdy.
To me Revlon as a brand sits comfortably between drugstore and high end.
The plastic and the metal packaging of the lipstick is matte just like the formula of Pink About it.
The lipstick is sweetly named 'Pink About It'
I am definitely one of those people who allow the name of the shade to do some talking!
Sometimes this is a negative in my buying regime (somtimes a name can put me off) which sometimes enables me in missing out on a fabulous shade.
It is nice to have a colour co-ordinating sticker on the bottom of the lipstick to help put a shade to a name.
The great thing about the packaging of these Revlon Lipsticks is the little window at the top of the outer case, this allows you to see the shade housed inside at a glance without having to memorise all the names of your lippies or go through them all!
I would not name Pink About It a pink nor a coral in particular although it leans more pink and has a yellow undertone, it is a beautiful shade and if you are fed up of the pinks you own or if you are not feeling brave enough to embrace a red shade then this could be for you.
It has quickly become my go to shade, subtle enough for day time and intersting enough for night time
If your lips are not in tip top condition the matte formula can sometimes be drying. In this case I would recommend a slick of balm plus blotted lips before application. If it is just the colour pay off you are after and not the matte finish then a slick of gloss on top is always lovely and moisturising.
Unfortunatley Revlon have discontinued this shade which I am slightly confused about, considering it is so extremely beautiful and a brilliant universal shade.
I just LOVE it, shame on you Revlon!!!
However, this shade is super easy to pick up on ebay.
I recieved it extremely quickly and efficently from this seller on ebay -link
(for a mere £3.50 incuding P&P)
Have you tried Pink About It?
Any other shades you can recommend?
