Revlon Lipstick Haul and Swatches

Um I had a teeny Revlon haul! I promise this is the last lipstick post for a while! The lovely Sarah from Baking Making Etc purchased these for me from her 'Revlon Man' at only £2 each woo hoo! 

Wine Not is a Matte formula along with Strawberry Suede and Fabulous Fig. In the Red and Smoked Peach are also Matte but part of the Super Lustrous range. Cherries in the Snow is a Creme formula and also part of the Super Lustrous range.

Cherries in the Snow is moisturising medium-bright fuschia and glides on beautifully - it's just bloody gorgeous and lasted a good few hours. Wine Not lasted even longer! I wasn't expecting the dark red wine colour to suit me but it does (I hope) and I adore it more importantly. The most surprise was Smoked Peach, nudes are not something I normally go for so this peachy shade was a pleasant surprise! It did not feel too drying but it did look it and showed lines on my lips slightly, a touch of balm before sorted out that problem (Same goes for the other mattes too). I think now I will be on the look out for more nudes (god help my bank balance haha). Strawberry Suede is a light red with a slight orange tone to it (oh how I love these colour lippys) and is my favourite!  In the Red is quite a stunning red and Fabulous Fig is my least favourite but I think there will be a time and place for it, again the lasting power is impressive. 

I am slowly realising matte formulas are not that scary and I am actually quite partial to them! Revlon are up there for me now and are welcome in my lipstick collection :D

Any Revlon fans out there? 


  1. I want Cherries in the Snow, they all look fantastic on you

  2. I'm another Revlon fan haha! Great post and agree on Fig thinks te others suit you more! Loving CITS and Smoked Peach :-) If you want any more let me know...plenty of nudes there ;-) xxx

  3. Wow this is a fantastic review Sam! Love all the photos :)

  4. Oh they look so pretty all in a row. I need my own 'Revlon Man' -- Cherries in the snow looks like a beautiful colour.

  5. You suit all of them! I think strawberry suede is my favourite on you though, you really suit orange tones x
