REVIEW: REVLON Matte Lipstick In the Red

 I've been on the quest of finding the red lipstick that would compliment my skin tone. I've tried some but mostly are super bright and super glossy. The moment this lipstick landed my hand (May 2011) I tried it on my lips and I just fell in love with it. This has been my favorite red lipstick ever!! I'm on my 2nd tube already and will never get tired of repurchasing it again and again. I'm always hesitant on wearing red lipstick before, but this stopped my hesitations and opened my mind that red lipstick, especially matte ones really compliments my skin tone and my lips. :) 
As what I always tell on my past reviews about the packaging of Revlon Matte Lipstick, I love it!:) It has a matte black tube and a transparent plastic on top of the cover to see directly what the shade of the lipstick!:)
The packaging is sturdy and looks expensive.

In the Red is a classic red lipstick. For me it's a medium red shade. It's not too bright nor too dark. I think this compliments all skin tone. This is my go to lipstick whenever I'm in a rush and no time to do my makeup. I just put some powder then 2 swipes of this lipstick and off I go. :)

 So here's a quick look of it on tube and the swatch with and without flash

So here's what I think about this lipstick!:)

What I love about it:
-It's matte but it's not drying on lips
-Easy to apply. It glides on smoothly on lips
-Can last 4-5 hours with minimal eating. Though a little fading will happen if you eat like full meals but a little dub and you're ready to pose for a smile!:)
-No unusual smell
Does not bleed
-I love the packaging
-Average price 477PhP on malls (Got it at 280PhP over Ebay)

What I don't like about it:
None!:) This is my 2nd tube already. I wouldn't have bought it again if I've seen any flaws from it. LOL

Just a simple tip:
If you have dry lips, I definitely suggest to condition first your lips by applying lip balm and let it sit for about 10 minutes before applying lipstick. Though I think this will affect the longevity of the product on your lips and this will not give you the exact shade of it if applied without lip moisturizer. :)

So that's it for my review about this product. Have you tried this lipstick already? Share me your thoughts about it!:) 

I will end this post with my picture wearing Revlon In the Red Matte Lipstick way back last year!:)

Keep Safe and God Bless!:)
Have a great week ahead!:)
