As you may have noticed, I have a bit of a thing for matte finish lipsticks. I don't know why, just right now I'm preferring the look to a glossy shine, and I'm constantly looking for my favourite matte. I've already got Chanel and MAC matte lipsticks, as well as Barry M. and Topshop - you can see them all in blogposts past. However, I'm going to be doing a series on drugstore mattes and high-end mattes, culminating in a best/worst type post, so if mattes are your thing, keep reading!
I picked up this Revlon Matte since I'd been so impressed with the Black Cherry lipstick I bought a little while ago. I love how the packaging itself reflects the finish of the lipstick!
This was one of my favourite colours from Revlon's range of mattes - oddly, they seem to be one of the only drugstore brands that do an explicitly matte range! Here it is swatched:
Mauve it Over is a really peachy nude, with warm undertones, so I was little worried that it wouldn't suit me. However, here it is swatched on the lips and I love it:
Please excuse the condition of my lips - they are dry alone, it's not the lipstick making them that way. This is honestly one of the more moisturising feeling lipsticks (in a matte finish) that I have tried. It applies really easily, doesn't drag, and doesn't feel chalky. It also lives up to it's long-lasting expectations. For me (with drinking) it lasted about 3 or 4 hours. It's a lovely colour (although I'm not sure where they got the name, isn't mauve like a lavender colour?) and I'm so glad I picked it up. I'm consistently impressed by Revlon as a high street brand.
You can get it here for £7.49.
