Loveeee this shade of lipstick. I'm a NC43 and this looks so lovely. I use this almost everyday cause its not overpowering. Like a previous poster said, it's best to apply with your fingers.

I haven't bought this colour before, but I am going to check it out. Generally, you can't go wrong with Revlon products. There is a reason they have been around for almost 80 years.

I just wanted to note, since someone made reference to animal testing, that according to Paula Begoun, Revlon doesn't test on animals. I'm sure they did at one time, they all did, but I am confident that they no longer do.

Love this lipstick. The color is beautiful and it makes my lips look fuller than they actually are.

For a while now I've been wanting a neutral lipstick, but I've been afraid that it would wash me out. In certain light and paired with certain makeup does unfortunately. I am very pale and so that's not a surprise, but I still like this lipstick anyway. It's a very neutral mauve that almost looks brown on my lips at times, but then others comes out having this sort of vintage look. I really like the fact that lipstick doesn't always have to be pink or red. I feel like this is a lipstick that can go with practically any other make up look, especially darker ones for fall and winter since it's so toned down and yet it still makes your lips stand out really well. Plus, it's super creamy and smooth so it looks very sophisticated and doesn't come off as a weird chalky look.

I've been collecting (*cough* hoarding *cough*) quite a few lip products lately, but this remains my favourite for daily use. It brightens up my skin (which otherwise looks sallow and zombie-like) but looks completely natural at the same time, and has this lovely creamy texture that doesn't dry out my lips. HG material. Will keep repurchasing!

For reference: NC 25~30 ( Asian, Chinese), yellow to olive undertone, median pigmented lips. This is one of my favorite lipsticks. I love to apply it with figures, patting it onto my lips instead of wiping it on ( Less amount will be applied by patting and the shade will be lighter and pinkier) . On my lips it is a beautiful warm toned mauve, my lip color but better, perfect for a finished but not overly done daytime look, especially great for fall. Creamy texture, matte finish but not drying. can be worn alone or underneath lipgloss. Highly recommended to gals with median warm undertones.

It is official, I have become a Revlon lipstick fan. The color selection is great, the price is affordable, I can find them everywhere, and the best part? My lips aren't tortured into an early tundra. No lipstick brand has managed to do that-- Not MAC, not Clinique, not Estee Lauder, not Lipstick Queen, none. You can't believe how much that means to me. My lips and my smile are the features I am most proud of, aside from my skin. I love to show them off, but have had a tough time trying to find colors and formulas that work with me. This brand took care of that in one swipe. The only thing that would make this perfect would be if they did no animal testing. But considering most of my products, at least my skin care is not tested on animals, it is a small sacrifice.

On to this particular color, it shows up as my natural lip color now, only brighter. My lips were brighter, almost raspberry colored as a kid and tween, but I've come to realize that with age things change. I felt unfortunate because i loved how they looked then, but this color makes me love them even more now. It is a soft, creamy and bright rosey pink. Not bright as in neon or blue based, but bright as in the color of a child's cheeks. The brightness of a natural pink flower in the spring. But not ostentatiously so. I like to wear it with a bare face. It makes my face look wide awake and brightened even when I have dark circles.

This is one color that looks good on everybody. I can't see who wouldn't be able to work this. And great for any occasion really. I wore this to a party with gold shadow, gold highlighted cheeks, and black winged liner and it was hot. I wore this with pink cheeks, and plum lined eyes and it was beautiful. I think it would make a great bridal color even. You can't go wrong. The feel of it, so silky, soft, and moisturizing is great. Really great. I may experiment with other brands in eyeshadow, etc. But to me, Revlon makes the best lipstick. Hands down.

Update 11/08/11: I followed Stellina recommendation and went to MAC to test Twig. This is a straight-up match. Only the formula for Rose Velvet is 1000x better and 2/3s cheaper. If you are unsure what looks to try with this just google MAC Twig and try some of them. For those that are Indian (India or of descent) and you like the lip looks of say Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra (love their makeup btw), this is a great way to copy them. I've tried some of their makeup looks/tutorials and it works great!

I bought Revlon's "love that pink" on a whim with a 2 dollar coupon at my HEB and I fell in love with the super lustrous lipsticks! I decided to but Rose Velvet the next time I went to the store (with yet another 2 dollar off coupon! ) I've been looking for a dupe for my Benefit "good to go" lipstick! the benefit one is a silky finish lipstick so the finish is very different but the color is the same! the color actually goes on more evenly. This is a my lip but better color, i feel like this could be a little brown on some skintones, but on mine its perfect :) love this lipstick! The best part of this is that if i blend this color with love that pink i get a beautiful color! I swipe rose velvet on first (I never do more than one swipe because these tend to look too heavy if you put too much on!) and then swipe on a little Love that Pink and its a brighter brownish pink! just lovely! totally worth the $3.94! (they're $5.94 at HEB for those of you in Texas). thank you revlon, you're a savior for the graduate student!

picked this up along with blushing nude. on me their very similar. rose velvet is a little darker and warmer and blushing nude is lighter and cooler. both can be worn during the day and night and both flatter my neutral to warm skin tone of NC 25-30. i love the creme finish of Revlon lipsticks and at my walmart they run at 4.99$

Update : the more I wear this the more I'm convinced that its the perfect nude for my lips. It dosent wash them out, looks like I've applied Concealer instead of lipstick, or the formula floats above my lips and comes off easily. This sinks in, looks natural, and fades nicely over time. So glad I didn't jump the gun and return this.
