Can't say enough about these mattes! The product is comparable to MAC. I love Strawberry Suede the best, but I hear it's discontinued. I also recommend the nude for a super mod pale lip. I haven't worn Revlon lipstick since I was obsessed with Blackberry in highschool, but I'm back as a customer.
Unfortunately, this didn't work for me. I love BE products, but I've found that I really need a creamy, MAC-type concealer for my dark undereye circles. This stuff just makes me look wrinkly and yellowish. I'm glad it works so well for other folks, though.
Once in a while, I like to pick out a random lipstick as a way of getting out of a beauty rut. Something unexpected that I wouldn't normally buy. Hot Tahiti was one such purchase. I am so pleasantly surprised by this romantic-yet-natural shade. It reminds me of people who have naturally flushed, red lips. I wouldn't classify it as a red, actually, more like a warm rosy-coral color. The texture is very versatile. This is a good one to keep in the purse because it works with a T-shirt or a little black dress.
I'm currently platinum blonde, and this product is absolutely amazing. It's basically like a toner you can use in the shower a few times a week. It works so well, in fact, that I have to wash it out quickly or I wind up with iridescent violet hair. Absolutely essential for icy, cool, Hitchcock blondes.
I love Vegas Volt! I expected it to be super bright based on the reviews (and the name), but it's a subtle, luscious pinky-coral on me. Truly beautiful, especially with Lychee Luxe lipgloss on top. By the way, you don't need to be tan to work this color-- it also works for a super-pale, retro pinup look.
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous in Kiss Me Coral

I LOVE this color. I recently became a redhead, and I wanted a bold evening lipstick that wouldn't clash with my hair or fair yellow-toned skin. I bought this on a whim, and I got SO many compliments. It's not super bright, but it does pop. I'd describe it as a warm, subtle red-orange. I never thought I was the coral lipstick type, but this is great. Even very fashion-conscious friends wanted to go out and buy it when they saw it on me, which doesn't happen that often. As for the formula, it's like any other Revlon Super Lustrous. It won't blow your mind, but it feels and looks nice.
My hair was dyed black, so I stripped it to a caramel brown shade first using bleach and 30 vol. developer. Then I applied this stuff in Flaming Red. Oh MAN, is it bright! Lifted more than any red I've ever used. It's a beautiful bright, clear copper. All my hair came out red-orange, but the roots came out SO bright and light that I actually had to fine-tune the color over the next couple of weeks, using various products from Sally's. Now my whole head is a great level 7 light copper. I think touchups will be easy, compared to the initial struggle of going from black to red.
