Makeup Wars: Favorite Red Lipstick

This week the Makeup Wars group searches out the best red lipstick. I am sharing several favorites, both old and new. You see, my favorite red lipstick was discontinued! Previously, I loved CoverGirl Cranberry Shine. You can still get it in a few places, and I linked to a seller on Amazon.com with it, but you wont’ find it in your drugstore anymore.  You can see my old review of it here on Girl Gloss.

So, since my old favorite is no more, I went searching for a new favorite red among the drugstore brands.  I don’t wear red often, so I prefer to stick to more affordable brands for it, plus I thought it would be nice to to see what is out there among the drugstore brands. I quickly found three Revlon shades that intrigued me, and among them I found a new favorite.

Revlon Red Lipsticks

The three Revlon shades I grabbed were:

Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Read (006)

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Certainly Red (740)

Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart (070)

Here are swatches of the three shades. From left to right are the Matte, the Super Lustrous, and the Lip Butter.

The Matte is my new favorite shade. It is a rather neutral to cool tone read that I think suite my pale skin well. I also tend to prefer my darker lip shades on the matte side. Although it is labeled matte, I thought it had a slight sheen to it, which was fine, and it was comfortable to wear. I tried adding the lip butter on top though and that was perfect, as the lip butter is moisturizing.

Here I am wearing the Revlon Matte in Really Red with a bit of the lip butter layered on top.

I also did a video review. You can see that below.

You can buy Revlon at any drugstore or big box retailer, or online at Drugstore.com.
