Revlon Lipstick Review/Swatches!

Hi everyone! 
This is another post about some of my favorite drugstore lipsticks, this time from Revlon! I made a YouTube video with swatches, if you haven't seen it, click here!!  

In my opinion, Revlon has the best color selection (besides NYX) at the drugstore. They have a great variety of finishes as well, with pearly, matte, and cream finishes in their Super Lustrous line and pearly and cream finishes in their Color Burst line. Overall, the cream finishes are my favorite, followed by the matte lipsticks. I am not a huge fan of the pearl finishes, as I feel they lose some of the pigmentation of the other formulas.

 I have been very, very pleased with all but one of lipsticks I have purchased from Revlon. The only one that was a miss for me was from the Color Burst line. Candy Pink was a beautiful bright pink, but the pigmentation was really lacking. I sold that one in my blog sale. Since I took the photos and filmed the video for these lipsticks, I have purchased one more lipstick from the Super Lustrous line in the color Coralberry. I love it, and it actually looks fairly similar to MAC's Everhip. 

For me, the pigmentation of these lipsticks is generally good and they wear pretty well for me. The mattes wear the best, but are a little drying and look best with a gloss over the top. If you haven't tried any of these, check out the swatches below. Their color range is fabulous and they have something for everyone!
