Even though that's about 6 months ago, I still remember it all too well because it came from someone who doesn't love make up and yet is able to notice the difference it makes. Don't get ahead of me, my best friend is a girl, and as much as she wants to love make up too, she can't because she has been suffering from skin asthma ever since she was a little kid. Its true though, what she said. I've always had this thing going on for pink lippies because I don't think anyone can go wrong with it! Its such a wearable color that screams fun and brings about the spirit of being young! Talk about instant age lifters!
So enough of that. Let's move on to what this post is all about. A review/swatch on Revlon's "Pink Pout" from the Super Lustrous line.
According to Revlon:
"Beautifully rich matte color glides effortlessly across lips.
Straight from the Runway shades! Suede-like, cushiony feel
and with maximum color impact. Beautifully rich shades."
As usual, here are my bare lips for reference:
The formula of this particular line of Revlon's is what I would rave about rather than the color pay off. Because even though it has a matte finish, it doesn't leave my lips looking flat out and dry. Its not exactly moisturizing but its not drying either. This is really perfect for me because I have mentioned in my previous posts how much I prefer those with matte finishes because it stays on longer.
As for the color pay off. Well.
I'm not that disappointed with this shade because I can imagine this would look great on smokey eyes. But for day time wear? I'll have to pass. For some funny reason, I just can't stop thinking about Nicki Menaj whenever I have this on and luckily, no one has said that to me yet. I just feel pale and dead wearing this lipstick alone. Maybe if I add a little bit of eye make up, it will look better but that's just too much for school wear, right? I'm pretty sure I'll get to use this properly in the future when I have to attend parties and whatnot. But when worn alone, it just doesn't go well with my warm skin so you're pretty lucky if you have cool or better yet, neutral skin.
I'm already planning on getting my next Revlon lipstick. If you have any suggestions, just comment down below! :)
The Good Bits:
- Locally available
- Affordable (Got it for 350php or $8.52 when Watson's went on sale)
- Doesn't dry out my lips
- Has a decent staying power
- It has no overwhelming scent
The Bad Bits:
- Doesn't go well with my warm skin
Who would you recommend this to?
- Those people looking for a lip shade they can partner with smokey eyes or any type of look that requires minimal lip wear.
- People with neutral/cool undertones looking for a matte lipstick that doesn't dry out the lips.
