Revlon Matte Strawberry Suede


I adore matte lipsticks and so far I have had to shell out some money to get them since drugstore brands didn’t seem to carry them.  Revlon’s matte line was just what I was waiting for.  CVS was having a BOGOF sale on all Revlon products so I thought I would check out some of their lipsticks.  The matte line was actually 75% which came out to $1.99 a pop!!  Sales are a double edged sword though because they were either gone or smooshed into the cap by somebody who obviously doesn’t appreciate a nice lippie….  So the only salvageable shade was this gem, Strawberry Suede.

I applied this color expecting it to pull like some of my Mac mattes but it glided on pretty easily.  I wouldn’t call it super pigmented but definitely pigmented.  It was a reddish, corally pink color.  I find it a very “face brightening” color and perfect for the warm weather that I am impatiently waiting for.   Perfect for a pinup look!  The matte finish is uber sophisticated and I love that I don’t have to wear much makeup with this.  I think that tends to be my goal when shopping for a lipstick.  I don’t find this formula dry at all which I’ve come to expect from a matte lipstick.  I’m now really disappointed when I think back to all those pretty lippies smooshed beyond recognition.  I would have bought all 10 shades!!!!  Ok maybe not but I would have considered it.  Pink Pout is supposed to be a dupe for Mac Snob.  When I checked out the smashed glob of lipstick in the cap, I thought it looked like a ringer for Snob.  Also, Really Red is supposed to be a dupe for Mac Ruby Woo.  I am resisting the urge to fly out to another CVS to see if I can find some more of these guys.  Hmmmm, Revlon is BOGOF at Rite Aid too….
