When it comes to dark lipsticks, I have to admit that I’m a bit of a sucker. That dark, vampy look that it gives it just gorgeous and anyone can pull it off. Pale skin? Darken your eyes and those lips will pop right out. Tanned? Compliments it perfectly (in my opinion anyways). I’ve been on the lookout for a brown lipstick for a while now, I can always remember my Mum wearing an Este è Lauder one when I was younger and she always looked so pretty, so when I found this little beauty in Boots, it went straight into my basket.
Revlon have such a good collection of lip products and I’m a lover of their Matte Balms but I was a Revlon Lipstick virgin until about 2 weeks ago. The Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick range cover pinks to nudes to this gorgeous deep brown ‘Choco-Liscious’. It isn’t completely Matte but it’s not too shimmery that you loose the colour when you apply it to your lips. It’s super pigmented though and has a build able colour so if you want to go quite dark, you can go over two or three times. The other thing I find is that it leaves a residue if you eat or drink, something I noticed whilst at work. But other than this, it’s perfect!
The chic black and gold packaging makes it look a lot more expensive than £7.49 and although you can’t see it properly, the lid is see-through so there’s no rummaging around and opening the lid to see what colour it is - you can see it pretty clearly!
I’ll definitely be picking up another few shades, maybe some more pinks or another Brown - i’ll let you know! Have you tried these lipsticks before? If not, head over to Boots now and pick yourself one up as it’s 3 for 2 across Revlon Cosmetics!
