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….
Have you guys tried any of these? Do tell….
