Nude Lip Series: Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink PoutSunday, June 19, 2011
Today on the nude lip series is a more budget-friendly nude lipstick - Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink Pout.
A lot of people have said that this lipstick is a good dupe for MAC's Angel and Snob, but I personally don't think they are. That being said, this is still a great colour, and it is staying in my nude lipstick collection.
This lipstick is very slightly blue-tinged, so I would recommend it for someone with really warm-toned skin. Some people actually like the effect of cool lipstick against warm skin, though, so you should try this before you decide whether or not you actually want it.
Though I like the colour, I'm not sure I like the fact that it's matte. I definitely recommend applying a lip balm or primer before applying this lipstick. As you can see in the picture above, and in the swatch below, it is pretty drying on the lips. Since starting the nude lip series I've realised that I apply only a very thin layer of lipstick. I should really change that because these lipsticks look so gorgeous when they are layered on a little thicker, and it is no different in the case of this lipstick. Apply a couple of layers (on top of a lip balm) and you get this beautiful creamy-ish pink lip goodness.
I purchased this from eBay for AUD 7, so I'm not sure how much it retails for here in Australia. I really like it paired with a dark brown or blue eye.
