revlon really red
revlon matte lipstick really red 006: boots or superdrug (£7.49) *
I've never really worn red lipstick, all the ones I've tried never look right on my skintone, either leading too cool or too warm on my neutral skin tone. Red lips can also makes me feel a bit too over done as I wear quite dramatic eye makeup. However Revlon Really Red is spot on. The lipstick is a matte true red with slight cherry tone. Its not chalky or drying in the slightest, infact the formula is really rich and has a lovely "suede" like finish, Its one swipe opaque too!
I think this shade would suit a variety of skintones, not just ones like mine. It has great staying power and I honestly got a really long wear out of it without re-applying. I love that it doesnt bleed either, I dont own any lip liners so I was really concerned it would bleed and look terrible. But nope, none at all!
Overall Im really happy with this Revlon Matte lipstick, I wont be swapping my go-to pink lip for it, but least I have a trusty red that I know suits me for those occasions where something more dramatic is needed. I'd highly reccomend this one if your looking for a nice drugstore red, its on the pricey end of drugstore, but AMAZING quality for the money. Im actually going to purchase a few of the other shades in the Revlon Matte range and will report back on those.
