Hello my lovelies :)
I'm genuinely sorry i haven't posted for a couple days, but i've just been feeling uninspired & just kfdjasoigje lately. Also, if you follow me on Twitter, you might know that i have been spending the majority of my time watching Skins (i actually stopped watching it to write up this post :D - i'm now onto the second season, the 2nd episode, the one where is Sketchy is stalking Maxxie D: - so please, nooo spoilers!) - & omg, i'm officially an addict!
Anyone else love Skins as much as i do? ♥
(Chris is my fave, nom nom nom ;)
And i digress......LIPSTICK! As you may already know, i'm a lippy addict and i'm always on the hunt for some new formulas and shades to add to my collection. Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick in "Pink Please" has been my go-to lipstick for months now, but i've finally found my new love - Revlon's Matte Lipstick in 002 Pink Pout.
I'm a complete sucker for pink lipstick to begin with, i just think it looks so pretty and feminine, and can really brighten up someone's face & make her look made-up without a whole lot of effort.
I'd heard many good things about this lippy shade, but whenever i went to go to Walmart to pick a tube up, they were always out of stock. I went a couple weeks ago & there was one tube left, so of course i had to buy it! :)
I'm so, soo happy i did (despite my buyer's remorse immediately after my purchase ;).
The shade itself is a very wearable pink, but still quite noticeable. I've swatched Pink Pout next to MAC's Snob, and although they look a bit different when you swatch it, they look quite similar on the lips - but not an exact dupe i'd say. Snob is more cool-toned, with blue undertones, whereas Pink Pout is more warm, but Snob & Pink Pout are definately around the same shade.
To be honest, i quite prefer my Pink Pout to Snob, and find myself reaching for it a whole lot more.
The formula is quite long-lasting, only requiring a touch-up in the middle of the day. The only negatives i find really is that it isn't very moisturizing, but since Revlon doesn't advertise it as such, i don't really mind - a simple application of lip balm before applying this does the trick though!
The other negative about this range in particular is the packaging - when you're in the store searching for a shade, you don't truly know what color you're getting because the tube is sealed with plastic, so you have to rely on the little see-through whole on top, the name, & the little color sticker on the bottom - not very helpful to be honest! I know it's for the safety of the consumer, but it can be quite annoying when you're not certain that you'll like the color you'll be spending your money on to get :)
Ew, my lips - i know D:
I just wanted to show you girlies how it looks on!
The Revlon Matte Lipsticks are affordable and very nice quality, and Pink Pout is an amazing & flattering shade, making it my go-to lipstick! :)
What's your go-to lipstick?
