In My Stash: Revlon Lip Products


Revlon is one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands due to their incredible variety of products and shades. Out of my entire collection, the brand I own the most products from is definitely Revlon. My lip products drawer is dominated  by Revlon glosses and lipsticks simply because I can't help myself to their endless colors. 


As you can see, I have a variety of Revlon products from most of their lip product lines. Everything I own swatches wonderfully on my skin.


My most disappointing Revlon lip purchases were the Matte Lipstick in Pink Pout and the Super Lustrous Lipstick in Twinkled Pink. Pink Pout is something of a cult favorite but the cool toned pink just doesn't look right on my skin and the matte finish is very drying on my lips. Twinkled Pink is a frost finish which I dislike due to personal preference. The shade looks gorgeous in the tube but on my lips it comes off as mostly shimmer. 


The Colorburst Lipsticks are far superior and I have the shades in Peach, Petal, and Soft Nude. Soft Nude is a creamy, shimmer-free nude that looks great on my skintone. Petal is one of my most reached for lipsticks because it looks like my lips but better. Petal has a bit of shimmer in it but it does not feel gritty or uncomfortable on the lips. Peach is my least favorite of the three simply because I expected it to look more coral. 


The Colorburst Lipglosses are nice if you like the colors they offer. Strawberry is an intense pink red shade that I love to wear on its own when the rest of my makeup is very subdued. Peony actually made it into My Top 5 Lipglosses post because it looks great over almost any nude, pink, or coral lipstick.


The Super Lustrous Lipglosses are also really nice (aside from Pink Whisper which I tossed a few months back because the color and shimmer really did not suit me). I love Coral Reef and Lilac Pastelle. The creamy texture adds a nice pop of color to my lips. Peach Petal is not a gloss I reach for often but its a staple nude gloss.


The Colorburst Lip Butters were all the rave when they first started popping up in drugstores and although I think they are good products, the shades I bought are just 'meh'. Creme Brulee is a semi sheer nude that I really do not need as I have too many nude lipsticks already. Gumdrop appealed to me simply because it looks like Lilac Pastelle which I already really like. Both of these shades are sheer and easily wearable. I'm looking into purchasing some of the more potent, bright shades in the future to see if I like those better.

  1. I agree, Revlon definitely makes THE BEST drugstore lip products! I have Strawberry too, which is gorgeous. My favorite Revlon lipsicks are Pink in the Afternoon (Super Lustrous) and Soft Rose (Colorburst). Pink in the Afternoon is the perfect warm pink (which is SO rare) and Soft Rose is the my favorite MLBB color. Also, funny I just tossed Pink Whisper too because it was SOOO ridiculously frosty. Sorry for the rambles...I love Revlon lippies too much too!

    1. I'm going to have to look out for Pink in the Afternoon in the future :) Pink Whisper just looked horrible on me. The shimmers were too overdone even though they were fine. No worries about rambling; I love talking makeup :D

  2. Revlon makes some top notch lip products! I love the Colorburst lipglosses and their new balm stains are awesome, I like them so much more than lip butters cause of the lasting power/stain it leaves behind.

    1. The balm stains are so tempting! They look really great but I have a ton of the Tarte balm stains (Lipsurgence Pencils) to use up first!

  3. I too own a lot of Revlon lip products, lol...They are my favorite drugstore brand. I don't like pink pout either. The color doesn't look that great on me and I don't really like the formula on that particular shade. It's not as creamy as I would like it to be. I've had better luck with other mattes from Revlon.

    1. A lot of people seem to like Pink Pout which was why I bought it in the first place. I've seen your swatches of the other matte Revlon lipsticks and they look a lot better!

    1. I feel the same way! Most of my lippies are nude or mlbb colors because they're just really easy to wear!

  6. I love Peach Petal and I think I will have to grab Pink Pout some days, which is supposed to be a (cruelty-free) dupe for MAC Angel. Revlon makes the best drugstore lip products in my opinion!

    BTW, did you know you had captchas on?

    1. I don't own Angel lipstick but I never knew it was so dark! Pink Pout looks quite dark on my lips but it leans really cool so it looks weird on me. I also was not aware that Revlon is cruelty free. I did a quick google search and it seems the consensus is not solid as to whether Revlon is really cruelty free. Will keep an eye out for information on that!

      Also, I did not realize I had captchas on but I didn't realize that made a difference in comments?
