Confession time. I'm not particularly brave when it comes to lips. I'll pop on a layer of gloss every now and again but lipstick? I can't help but think I look like an old granny (anyone else get that?). I've decided to face my colour fears head on and plunge myself in to the world of lipsticks. Priceline had a perfectly timed 3 for 2 on Revlon so my lipstick quest began..
Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm Elusive: Now not strictly a lipstick but with all the hype surrounding these things how could I not pick up at least one? Although mattes are arguably harder to work with I thought it would work really well simply patted in to the lips to add a smidgen of colour to get me started. I've only worn it a few times (yes, I've braved it outside the house!) but I'm already a fan. Nicely pigmented but can easily be toned down, not at all drying and lasts really well on the lips. Plus, if you get sick of the matte finish you can always pop a layer of gloss over the top, perfect.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Pink Incognito: One of Revlon's shine finish lipsticks, this is like the bridge between a gloss and a full on lipstick. Super shiny, fairly sheer and nice and hydrating it's hard to go wrong, even a lipstick newbie like myself can apply sans mirror. Perfect for adding a little somethin' somethin' to your lips without having to worry. I've been throwing this in my handbag and actually wanting to reapply through out the day, it must be a miracle!
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Coralberry: I'm not going to lie, I am yet to rock this in it's full on glory and have been instead been resorting to the good ol' subtle pat in and enjoying the results. Whilst it may not be the brightest or boldest colour out there for me it's pretty intimidating! I really like the creme formula so think I'll have to return to the Revlon stand at my local Priceline.
I'm determined to become a full on lipstick convert. I'll keep you updated!
