Revlon Really Red!

So I’ve had this lipstick for about half a year now and it’s my go-to RED as of the moment. I was contemplating on getting Russian Red or Ruby Woo but during that time, I still wasn’t convinced that red lipstick suited me so I wasn’t ready to splurge on a MAC lippy just yet. Instead, I went to PCX and looked for a drugstore brand. After a number of swatches and tests, I came across this Revlon Matte Super Lustrous in Really Red which rang the “ding-ding-ding-we-have-a-winner” bell for me. 
Consistency. I find Revlon’s matte formulation quite so-so. I would not say that it moisturizes my lips but as opposed to other lipsticks, it doesn’t suck out the natural moisture of my lips. It applies smoothly on the lip that with one swipe. It drags a wee bit, but nothing like our dear ol’ Ruby Woo.

Pigmentation. It is named aptly — really red. The redness packs a punch that with one swipe, you get great color payoff. It is a red brown shade with blue undertones. In the tube, it looks slightly browner, but once on the lips it is a true red that I feel suits a range of skin tones. Most reviews I’ve read after purchasing this state it is a dupe for MAC’s Russian Red and/or Ruby Woo, which I don’t quite see.

Lasting Power. Quite long-lasting at 5 hours! Survived two meals and a few kisses in between (haha). 

Price. Got it for Php450 in Watson’s, as compared to MAC’s Ruby Woo that retails for Php1000. The price is definitely right!
Great shade of red but very bright and not so office-friendly
Outstanding pigmentation, great color pay-off
Said to be a dupe for MAC’s Ruby Woo
Very budget friendly at P450 a tube (compared to MAC’s 1000/tube)

    Wow, the formula is surprising thou it’s a matte lipstick it does not look like drying on lips. And vavavoom ang staying formula! parang it’s not blue undertone, hehe parang orangey ang dating nya saken, maybe because maputi ka Ms.Shari. It suits you! I think if I’ll buy mid class lippies, I think I’ll go for revlon 🙂 – Pretty Thrifty

    It suits you. I think red lipstick is so classy. And a go to if you’re running out of time. Just a winged eyeliner and red lippie will do. 🙂

    Another great post and very helpful review from the misty mom! Hihihi kilig naman ako dun sa kisses with hubby. Based on your reviews, I like it because unlike other matte lippies, it doesn’t lose the natural moisture in the lips, which is very important.

    Sounds like a perfect lippie! 😀 I’ve been dreaming of getting MAC’s Ruby Woo but I just can’t convince myself to shell out P1000 for just a lipstick. This one looks sooo worth it. Plus, it looks great on you. Will consider this when I get my next red lippie, sana bagay rin sakin. 😀

    Red lip colour suits you so well!! I love the way red lip colour looks on other people but I haven’t found the right one for me yet. I think I need to go and have a look at this one.
