Upon receiving my driving license a million years ago, I donned my pink leather driving gloves, drove myself to Kmart and bought a "Driving Lipstick" - L'Oreal's Pink Tranquilo. This is pretty much that - a very bright (but not neon) creme/matte pink with peach in it. It isn't particularly flattering on me, but don't let that dissuade you. Below reviewer is correct in saying that it makes lips look very dry. Mine tend that way no matter what. If yours do not and you would like a powdery finish shrimp lip color (remember Cover Girl Lip Powders?), get this. I think on the gal with the right insouciant mood, this would be A-1. 16 year old me really wanted to be her.
Must agree completely with previous reviewer 1017. The color is peachy-awful, and the texture is thick and grainy. On me, on moisturized lips, I found it impossible to get a light swipe, it only allows for a heavy coating, and it makes my lips appear kind of dry-almost crusty, even though they are not. The only thing keeping this lipstick from the old ladies who might wear it is a frost, but it is matte. Somehow it is still not right on me. I bought it 30 minutes ago and i can't wait to return it.
1988 called, they want their lipstick back. Seriously, this looks and feels just like my first lipstick ever in 8th grade. I am astounded by the good reviews. This lipstick looked NOTHING like the soft pink loveliness shown in these pictures. The texture was awful and the color is painfully dated. I know some 80's fashions are back, but I can't wear the same shade lipstick I wore in 1988! I felt like I was in the cast of Saved by the Bell. I can't return this fast enough. I am NW20, rosey pigmented lips, black/brown hair, brown eyes. The only other woman I have seen wear a color like this recently is the 60 yr old woman at the gym with dyed bright blonde hair, plastic surgery and botox everywhere. This looks decent in the pics here, but on me...dated.
OMG!!! This is such a georgeous lipstick!!! It's a creamy soft light pink maybe expected to be for blondies, but soooooo cute in brunettes as well. I've nothing bad to say about it. It's pretty, moisturizing, with a really nice lasting power and very cheap!!!
I got it after watching Breakfast at Tiffany's 'cause I fell in love with Holly. I heard this was the one she could be wearing and I do agree 'cause I found a Revlon's vintage poster which showed this lipstick packaging during 50s and...it was the one she uses in the movie!!! I think it can fits everybody and it looks beautiful paired with green eyeshadows.
I never thought I'd gravitate toward lighter, milky pinks, but this is such a beautiful, happy color. Rumored to have been worn, inspired by (or perhaps even created for) Audrey Hepburn, Pink in the Afternoon is soft, demure and subtle, yet still makes impact. It's not shimmery or sheer, nor is it matte and prone to dryness - it's creamy and opaque, it wears well and glides on easily. Worn alone I feel almost mod, and I prefer wearing it this way; worn with a bit of gloss (either clear, sheer pink or champagne) it's somewhat sexier. Very pretty!
This is the perfect neutral pink for my NC15ish complexion and I'm totally in love with it. I should have purchased this a long time ago! It goes great with all the colors in the UD naked palette and it's a lovely coral-pink. I do wear my favorite lipbalm underneath for revlon lipsticks have the tendency to be drying on my lips without it. High quality revlon formula and the kind of color I'd expect to pay alot more money for. Highly recommend!
A VERY NICE peachy/coral-y pink lipstick. A lot of people said this colour seems like something a 50's/60's colour. I was kind of scared to purchase this colour for that reason but I am so HAPPY I did in the end. I looked for swatches and read reviews before buying.
Pros: This colour goes VERY WELL with my complexion! The first couple of times I wore this I got so many compliments on how nice the colour looked on me!
Creme finish. No shimmers or anything
Cheap: On sale for $3.99 CAD
Cons: Because it is a creme finish it is not the most moisturizing lipstick out there. However even with my dry to sometimes very dry cracked peeled lips I didn't have much problems with it. Instead of gliding it on, I gently dab it, concentrating most of the colour on the center of my lips and "smack lips together" and the colour distributes evenly. Of course I always apply a lip blam before using a lipstick so therefore I don't experience much dryness if any.
I LOVE this colour and Definitely will repurchase once it goes on sale! I took off 1 lippie because of the moisturizing factor.
This is a really nice creamy pink. The color is actually slightly darker than I thought it would be, but the packaging makes viewing it difficult. The best part is that it's moisturizing and doesn't get cakey. Lasts for a while, but like any lipstick, it will rub off very easily.
I originally purchased this lipstick because supposedly it is the shade that Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Being that I love Audrey so much I wanted this to mimick her look in the movie. I have light olive skin and this is such a pretty creamy pink on me. I love this with a very natural makeup look (just mascara, blush and this lipstick) or with a glamorous look like a dramatic cat eye. This lipstick is moisturizing as it is a cream and doesn't give a matte effect. I like wearing a gloss over it for a different effect. Overall, for $6 this lipstick is a gorgeous pink and I could see it being flattering on a lot of different skintones.
I have been wearing this lipstick for decades. I was surprised to see how many comments there were about Pink in the Afternoon being the perfect Audrey Hepburn color. She wore this color in a Revlon ad when I was a teenager. I don't know if it was specifically created for her or not, but the name "Pink in the Afternoon" is a takeoff on one of her movies "Love in the Afternoon" which makes me wonder if it was specifically formulated for her. In any event, it's the perfect pink color - apparently for a great many more people than just me.
