Before I start this post, I want to say I got the idea from the gorgeous and awesome Romzs over at Norwegian Elephant. Before you look at my post you should go check out her blog, it's great! Promise. I saw Romzs post on her Revlon lipstick collection and realised we had the same amount of lipsticks, and three shades the same also! Great minds...
Revlon are easily my favourite lipstick brand. Yes, more favourite than MAC. They are the brand I have the most lipsticks from, I love their creams and their mattes, and I also love their price point.
What is also awesome is that you can get some of these shades for a lot cheaper than retail on eBay. I'l put links below!
|L-R: Mauve it Over (Matte); Pink in the Afternoon; Kiss Me Coral; Cherries in the Snow; Wild Orchid; Black Cherry|
Mauve it Over is a peachy nude-brown matte, that goes with everything and wears brilliantly without drying out my lips. You can see it on my lips here. I definitely want more Revlon mattes if they are as good as this. US Ebay has it here for £2.51.
Pink in the Afternoon is a light, warm pink and a very recent addition to my collection which I have been loving. It's pigmented by soft and doesn't overwhelm my face. I think it's pretty neutral since it doesn't pull too blue or too yellow, although it's definitely a warmer pink. Amazon has it for £2.25.
Kiss Me Coral is a glossy, bright orange colour which pulls a little red. It is awesome and bright and actually doesn't make me look too mental - you can see a picture here. You can get this here on eBay, where the current bid is 99p.
Cherries in the Snow has been around since the 1950s, and is a bright, warm, blue based raspberry pink. I thought it would be more red but it's just very deep pink. You can see it on me here. It is not available for cheaper on eBay or Amazon, as far as I can see.
Wild Orchid is an almost metallic looking bright, blue pink. People have compared it to MAC's Show Orchid. You can get this on eBay for just over £4.
Black Cherry was one of the first Revlon lipsticks I ever got and it's a deep blackened red purple. You can see it on me here - I think it's a surprisingly flattering colour. It's another which is not cheaper on eBay or Amazon.
If you want to buy them from normal shops, Boots are currently running a 3 for 2. Here are the creams, here are the mattes, both are £7.49. They are the same price from Superdrug.
Have you got any Revlon lipsticks? Which are your favourites?
