One of my most trusted drugstore lipstick brands is Revlon. It's not the cheapest in the market (if you're lucky and you live in the US, I heard they do amazing sales with it!), but pigmentation wise & the great staying power, I'd say it's pretty worth it. Also, did you know, that most of their lip colors, go waaaay back? Pretty amazing, huh?
Pink in the Afternoon, Certainly Red, Cherries in the Snow
Pink in the Afternoon reminds me of Holly Golightly's lip color in Breakfast at Tiffany's! It's a very flattering warm pink with the slightest hint of peach. This remains one of my favorite lipstick shade of all time.
Certainly Red was my first ever Red lipstick. I didn't really know any better during that time, never knowing that there's such a thing as "undertones", I just badly wanted a red lipstick then. The color is a bit too much on me - too bright, too blue. When applied directly from the tube, it can make you look like a clown. It isn't a very flattering shade, which is why I'm surprised that it has been around since 1951.
Cherries in the Snow debuted 1953, a classic shade indeed. On most, it looks like the perfect Raspberry Red shade. On me, sadly, it leans more on the red, though you could still see some of the berry undertone in it. Maybe I'll nude out my lipstick the next time I try this color, see how it goes, hmm..
Pink Pout, Mauve it Over, Fabulous Fig
Pink Pout was my first foray to the Revlon matte line. It's a gorgeous Barbie, bubblegum pink color. It reminds me of MAC Snob in a way that it pulls just a bit lilac when worn. As of most Revlon Matte lipsticks, this isn't drying at all.
Mauve it Over is a brown peachy color - a staple inside my makeup bag because it looks nice no matter what blush you have on. It's a very nice MLBB lipstick shade.
Fabulous Fig was the latest Revlon lipstick I bought. It's a nice brown/red/plum shade. You can a more in depth review of it here.
Do you like this type of post? :) I have a random drugstore lipstick collection coming up in a few!
Oh, tomorrow is the 22nd which means... Hunger Games! While I'm still not too keen on the actors/actresses that they picked out to play the characters (I very much doubt that this guy can say "sweetheart," and make it sound convincing!?), I'm still so, so excited for it! Game of Thrones Season 2 is also coming up in a couple of weeks which means I should read the 2nd book ASAP. What are you excited for this month? :)
