As the previous reviewer said, this ain't mauve--it's a light peach-brown, with maybe a bit of pink. On my pale lips, it's definitely a light peach- nude, which isn't so bad since I have light warm skin. It's an odd color, but the worst part is that for my very dry lips, this is just too uncomfortable feeling, even with lip balm underneath.
If this is mauve, I'm from Mars. This is more of a peach or light terra cotta shade. I purchased this lipstick in Pink Pout, and like that color, but this one having mauve in the name is misleading. It is an alright shade if you have the coloring for it, but it barely shows up.
Gorgeous! These Revlon Matte lipsticks are terrific and this color is one of the best. I'm super-pale (think about NC10 if such a thing existed) and I usually like strong color on my lips to balance the paleness, but this with a nice coat of mascara makes my eyes pop and my face look great. I don't really consider it mauve' as another reviewer said below it's more like a soft rose shade. I receive a lot of compliments when I've worn this color. Also, I don't find the Revlon Mattes drying at all. I am used to matte lipsticks being dry, but these are definitely not drying the way MAC's are (and I love MAC's).

I picked this up @ Walgreens for $8.99 as a December Rebate item.
As usual, matte lipsticks are dry. This is no exception. I put a bit of lip balm underneath the lipstick and it helped somewhat, but still 'looked' dry.
Since this was a freebie, I thought I would give it a go. The texture is exactly that of MAC's matte lipsticks--smooth and silky. No scent nor flavor. The good part is that the formula doesn't feather. The bad part is that the color looked 'deathly' on me.
I'm using this everyday now. I guess I'm used to the nude-lip look and like it very much, I do use it over my Burt's Bees classic lip balm.
Mauve it over is not a mauve color, in my opinion. It is much warmer than mauve....I'd say it is a muted, nude rose colored lippie (okay, which maybe a touch of mauve thrown in there). I love this lipstick b/c it is easy to wear. I don't need a liner, I can just apply and go and know that it looks great! I like that if I layer a gloss like b.e. dolly over it, it will definitely highlight it's mauve undertone, but it I layer something like rimmel snog, it looks rosey and glossy. I love it. The lipstick is very versatile. Unfortunately for me, I think this is the only color out of the new matte collection that will work for me. I might try one or two of the deeper colors, but I like this low-maintenance lipstick. Oh, and by the way- the girl at Walgreens said that revlon will keep this matte line permanent!!!
OMG! Luv this...it is so funny (like the other person already mentioned), but I was gonna say that this is the more subdued...long lost sister of MAC's Kinda Sexy! I already own that one and there's a pic posted.
This matte texture is new to Revlon and it doesn't have a scent. The texture of Mauve It Over is similar...but ladies use Aquaphor's ointment in the tube....it works like a charm!...I hope they keep this color ...its similar to what I wanted from MACs other colors Cherish and Velvet Teddy...and came close with Kinda Sexy...this color seals the deal though....I like that I don't need to tone this one down with lipliner so much like KS. BTW...I am NC30 to 35.
UPDATE: I still love this...I use Jordana's 99 cent lip liner pencil in natural.
Mauve it Over is one of the lipsticks from the newly released Revlon matte collection.
On my pigmented lips, this lipstick is a neutral-toned, light to medium, mauvey pink lipstick. I am drawn to nude pink lipsticks but they tend to either wash me out or look too Barbie-ish on me. Luckily, Mauve It Over is a great alternative to those types of lipsticks -it manages to give me sexy pink pout and still look appropriate.
It is somewhat drying so I prep my lips with lip balm before I apply it. On my lips, this color is a sister or cousin of MAC's matte l/s Kinda Sexy (Next to Kinda Sexy, which is a warm-toned lipstick, Mauve it Over looks cooler-toned).
It has no scent/taste. It comes in a black matte looking tube with a clear top (so you can see the color of the lipstick).
For reference, I have light skin with neutral to warm undertones, MAC NC 20 to 25, Revlon CS liquid foundation combo of Buff and Sand Beige.
