This is probably the best red lipstick I have used. I have quite dry lips normally but I don't find that this particularly dries them out, I do apply a little chap stick underneath with all lipsticks, though. The colour is quite a dark, ruby red, it looks a lot more expensive than it is (One of the things I love most about this lipstick is the price!)
The packaging is standard, black with a clear window at the top through which you can see the lipstick, which I find very helpful when trying to find it (not having to open the lid to check or look at the bottom for the name).
I often wear this on nights out and probably reapply just once, although I'm not sure I even need to. This product has great staying power.
Overall, very good, I don't think I will fork out more for a red lipstick anytime soon when I can buy this for less than £10.
I LOVE this product!
Revlon has the best drugstore lipsticks that I have tried in general!
There matte lipsticks are also the best.
I have a couple of MAC matte lipsticks and I feel like they are very drying and are prone to feather away.
The Mac ones don't last long, probably only about 1 to 2 hours.
The revlon ones are only 5 bucks and are very moisturizing.
These are very pigmented, yet, don't feather as much as the mac ones.
I would say that these are NOT kiss proof, as it can stain somethings it hits.
But overall, I think that this is an AWESOME Lipstick lik=ne and I will definitely be repurchasing more and more :)
Beautifully flattering red lipstick!! The perfect shade of red for light skin tone. It doesn't flake and it stays a true red color while it's wearing off. I had to reapply in the center of my lips after eating, but it will last several hours if you don't eat. The matte formula is slightly drying so I make sure to apply chap stick and let it dry before applying the lipstick. I've definitely recommend this! Even better, I got it for under $5.
LOVE IT!! my lips are always chapped but even if I apply it, it doesnt make my lips look ugly and chapped. i Love that it is matte and makes my teeth look whiter. Will be buying this again as soon as i run out!
I own a lot of Revlon lipsticks, but I have to say, this is one of the best formulas they've ever put out. It's a beautiful matte texture but never drying or flaky or simply nasty to look at. It's a true bombshell lipstick--the color is a vibrant, true red that screams LOOK AT ME! in the best possible way. Every time someone I know sees me in this, they do a double take and either tell me to tone it down or tell me it looks lovely. It's the kind of lipstick you wear for yourself, to perk up a bad day or simply make life less dull.
For reference, I'm an NC25 and it goes great with my skintone. I don't need lipliner with this, and it fades evenly after a few hours. I don't get any patchiness or chola lip ring effect, either.
The only reason I wouldn't repurchase is that I could never be faithful to one red lipstick. I have a ton, but this is definitely up there among my favorites.
I love this lipstick! It is SOOO red and so perfect. I love it for day and night, the matte really makes it wearable during the day but fierce at night, with the right eye make up. During the day, I'll often add just regular chapstick (Burt's Bee's) over the top so as it slowly fades into a more wearable look, its always blended and looks great without coming off slowly in the center and looking like a hot mess. I got it at Wal-Mart for less than $6, not on sale. It goes on easy and doesn't dry your lips out at all. I also wear it in the evening and am really surprised at how well it wears. It's been my go to red for the last few months; love wearing it!
Really nice matte lipstick. Doesn't dry me out, easy to apply with its consistency and is great for an evening look. The tube also looks durable and elegant.
The only problem I have with it is the price (RRP AUD$22) :(
Really love this lipstick! I love the retro red lip look but always had trouble finding a colour that wouldn't transfer everywhere and that I wouldn't end up really self consciously checking to make sure it still looked alright. This lipstick completely stayed in place and barely transfers at all. Gorgeous flattering true red colour that would be pretty universally flattering. My lips are super dry so I do find it mildly drying, but really not bad at all for being matte.
Favourite drugstore red EVER! Looking for a matte retro lip, the one that would rival what Marilyn and other classic bombshells wore? Look no further, Revlon Really Red is wonderful and it's cheap. Doesn't dry out the lips, applies pretty easily, vibrant pinup red that cheers you up in now time in a very sleek packaging. It's a color that may appear blue but then it's a true red. In fact, it's a universal color so from lightest to darkest skin, this looks incredible and striking!
I love this. I was looking for a deep red, since I have a few pinky reds and orange/coral reds. I was able to look inside the tube and see the actual color since the top of the cap is clear (brilliant!). It's perfectly matte, but not dry.
