The true power of a red lipstick can never be underestimated; a simple red lipstick has the ability to amplify the whole look. One can never have enough of lipsticks , although I find shades of pinks to be safer for my lips but once in a while there is no harm in moving out of the comfort zone . I intended to buy a pink or coral shade for myself but as soon as my eyes caught the Revlon retro red 004 Lipstick from their super lustrous range I could not resist. This range from Revlon includes four finishes — crème, matte, pearl, and shine — and is available in 82 vibrant shades. I am an all time matte finish lover therefore picked up the retro red, let’s see how it showed on my lips…
I have always been fan of Revlon lustorous range packaging , they come in a normal tube lipstick form which is in black color and with the brand name ‘ Revlon’ written on the golden part and the shade name written on the bottom of the tube. The top of the lip tube is see through which gives a hint about the shade inside. Overall for me the packaging looks classy and is travel friendly as well.
At Revlon Counters and Online.
My take on the product:
Pigmentation/Shade/Texture and Staying ability:-
Revlon 004 retro red caught my eyes as its one of those red shades with blue undertone , basically a shade which can instantly brighten up the whole look. Its neither dark red nor pale but a true red which i love it. The best thing about this lipstick is the pigmentation and finish, its supremely pigmented as one swipe gives true color of the shade and it leaves a creamy matte finish. I do prefer matte texture when it comes to lipsticks and this one has one of those latest non drying creamy textures which on application looks matte.Also it does not have any smell . It’s a transfer resistant lipstick which appears amazing on the lips. Shade , pigmentation and texture wise , the Revlon retro red is definitely something worth buying.
Coming to the staying power , it was intact on my lips for good 4-5 hours after which the intensity of the shade faded uniformly . One can increase its longevity by blotting up with tissue on your lips post application. I can easily call this stunner as a dupe for classic MAC Ruby woo or MAC deeply adorned as shade wise they do resemble a lot and also its application is smooth .
Overall verdict :-
Matte lipstick lovers like me grab Revlon retro red 004 right away as its comfortable non drying texture , red shade and pigmentation is incredible . Pairing this shade with neutral eyes or heavy eye look can make an individual easily outshine in the crowd. I have used this lipstick umpteen times and many people complimented this shade . If you are someone who are looking for the perfect red lip then do give this one a shot .
