I still can't see how people can say this lipstick was splotchy for them! I bought this lipstick because it was on sale again at HEB and it was the only dark colored shade I haven't tried. I am so glad I bought it!!! I first I thought it was going to be waay too vampy for me but surprisingly, it worked out well. It only took one swipe to get my lips fully dark. It makes an utterly gorgeous contrast to my dark skin! It kind of lends an edgy vibe to your look that's drop dead sexy. A previous reviewer was right: when you wipe it off, it stains your lips this beautiful dark plum color. I get compliments on it all the time. This is definitely going to be a staple in my makeup bag!!
Lately I've been experimenting more and more with lipsticks, and this one is most definitely one of my new favourites.
I don't know if a lot of people reviewing just got a bad tube, but the colour isn't sheer. It goes on very dark with just one application. The colour is an inky, dark purple, and super gorgeous. This is the perfect lip colour if you're aiming for something a little more vampy yet chic. Obviously I wouldn't recommend wearing this during the day, but I love pairing this with a well contoured face and lush lashes.
I like the formula, as its quite creamy but buildable. I always use lip chap before I apply lipstick, because my lips get dry very easily, but I've found this lipstick isn't as drying as other brands. The staying power is okay I suppose, but for the price I cant complain.
Overall, I really like it and when I'm done with this tube I'll definitely purchase another.
how are people calling this sheer?! HOLY SHIIT this is DARK! this is NOT SHEER and it is very PIGMENTED on me! it's like 90's goth velvet purple. I doesn't apply matte or heavy, maybe that's why people are saying "sheer". It is very pigmented, even after wiping it off your lips will be tinted plum. It applies a little weird- sticks less to the inner/center of lips. I like that the tube has a clear top so you can see the color, thank you Revlon!
Not very pigmented and hard to apply evenly. I would never wear it
Surprised at all the negative feedback, but I personally love this lippie!!! Great dark purple, buildable to my liking. Nice vampy look if thats what you are going for. Great for fall/winter looks!! One of my favs in my huge lipstick colloction!!
Really disappointed! I wanted a dark purple and this is so sheer and uneven. It's awful. Definitely would not buy again. I like some of Revlon's other lip colors but this one did not cut it.
This lipstick is very disappointing. It goes on uneven, and is too sheer for my liking. Will be returning it.

This is a beautiful dark plum lipstick. Kind of a Clinique Black Honey shade. Looks beautiful with my pale skin, not too overwhelming if applied lightly. Not very pigmented, but this is a plus for me. One of the few berry plums I can wear.
In the tube, it's BEAUTIFUL. But it's super sheer and to get it looking anything like the tube you have to layer and layer and layer and layer some more. And after all that layering, if you don't have perfectly smooth lips (moisturize and exfoliate before hand)-SURPRISE! Every flaw will be there. Flaws you didn't even know you had will be there. Will not repurchase.
Be forewarned: you will have to swipe this color on a few times to get it to look anything like it looks in the tube. The first layer or two came out sheer on me. So like an Energizer Bunny, I just kept going...and going...and going. Once you get there, it's a nicely pigmented color. And the lipstick itself doesn't feel dry or tacky, always a plus.
