Revlon makes good lipsticks for the prices, and it's also appealing that many of the matte lipstick colors have been around for decades. I just get a kick out of knowing that the women in those 50's and 60's photos I like may very well have worn the same lipstick I am wearing. Not the less because most of these colors are by no means Stepford shades. I love the outre quality of Strawberry Suede and Fire and Ice, and THOSE have been around for ages.
Stormy Pink is a strange shade too, and I mean that in a good way. It's a rosy pink, but not quite rose... or at least, it has nothing of the organic, breezy quality you'd associate with a rose to it. There's a fair bit of white mixed in, so it inevitably jars on complexions that have any kind of color in them, but it's not pale at all either, as the "rouge" component of the pigment is a very intense candied pink. It's not quite pastel, either, though, as there is also a gray undertone to it that tones it down and makes it more ladylike... though this lady would not be your average debutante.
I am Asian, so the effect is rather striking on me, which I actually like. I employ Stormy Pink as a chic, edgy alternative to a nude lip (I can't wear actual nudes, they totally wash me out), as that pastiness and the matte texture create a similar "blank canvas" effect, only with the visual punch of the mod pink.
Due to the weirdness of the color, though, it does require a full face of makeup to look good: all ruddiness (and I have a fair bit of it) should be neutralized, and eye makeup is a must (even if it's just a little bit of liner... or even just black mascara, if you have good lashes). It's not really a lipstick you'd reach for to look fresh-and-pretty and groomed-but-not-groomed. It is matte, so it's inevitably drying, but I've found it's actually not AS drying as it's been made out to be, and certainly not compared to other matte lipsticks: it's more silicones than anything else, so it glides on better than, say, Ruby Woo would.
All in all, a solidly good purchase and a fun blast from the past. Not an essential in my makeup bag, but it's fun to have around and experiment with now and again, and it's still high-quality enough to avoid being just a cheap bag of thrills.
P.S. If you already have this, are intimidated by the weirdness of it, and/or are looking for a way to wear it in more everyday situations... layer a peachy gloss over it or dab a warmer pink lipstick in the center of your lip... that actually gives a really pretty, rather dolly effect that's also work-appropriate.
