revlon pink about it

revlon matte lipstick in pink about it: ebay (discontinued shade, £2.99) 

When I reviewed the Really Red Revlon lipstick I knew the formula was going to be a winner with me so I went out and bought two more. This shade has actually been discontinued so I picked it up on ebay for around £3. After doing some searching online it seems Revlon have a habit of bringing out these lipsticks in the matte range then discontinuing them soon after. They are much cheaper on ebay than in store (£7.49) and have a large shade variety.

Revlon Pink about it is not as pink as I imagined it would be. On me it leads very orangey-peachy toned but still has pink undertones rather than being a full on pink lipstick. Its a warm toned hot pink which I think could almost be described as a coral/red. It is still pink though, I think its quite a unique shade which would probably look different on different people depending on your colouring or pigmentation of your lips. Like the other matte lipsticks in the Revlon range Pink About it is a matte and has suede feeling to it, The formula is similar to a MAC Satin Finish lipstick. Its full coverage in one swipe. It stained my lips when I wore it which was really frustrating as when I wanted to change lipsticks it made them look way too red.

I think the lipstick is really good, but its not my colour as I prefer much cooler neutral pinks. The Revlon Matte formula is still one of my favourite lipstick formulas I've tried (drugstore and high end) and I'd really recommend trying them out if your a fan of matte lipsticks that dont suck the moisture out of your lips completely!

  1. i have naturally quite dry lips, do you think a matte formulation would be too drying?

  19. Ah I have this shade and quite a few others from the Revlon matte line, such a great formula! I'm particularly stingy with Strawberry Suede, gorgeous colour but sadly also discontinued. I think you pull off this warmer pink really well! x
