Purple lips | Revlon

Revlon is just one of those make-up brands that we all know, love and trust, correct? I loved the Colourburst lip butters for so long. Recently in Boots their 'three for the price of two' got me again. Something in me that day must have just wanted purple lipsticks so I went ahead and bought three Revlon purple lipsticks. It was about time really, I couldn't continue wearing MAC's Rebel for the rest of my years (however that one still is one I find myself reaching for more than I should) Since that day, I havent been disapointed. I am definitely loving working the purple lips currently.

First up is the one that I assume has been around the longest and that is the Revlon Super Lusterous lipstick in the shade 663 'Va Va Violet'. This looks the most scary in the bullet as the shade looks super dark however I really like it when its on. I actually think it complements my skin tone. The overall staying power is pretty good however when my lips are sore it really does accentuate the dryness. Love the packaging though, so cute and classic. 

Next, something I have read very mixed reviews about: Revlon's Colour Stay Moisture stains. I purchased mine in the colour 'Parisian passion' 005. I had being looking for this certain colour for a little while but it always seemed to be sold out. When I found it, no questions asked, it had to be mine. I love the formula of this product because it's super glossy like a traditional lip gloss however it is not sticky in the slightest (perfect, huh?) The colour range is pretty good. I'll for sure be going back for more.

Finally on my mini boots splurge list is Revlon's Colourburst matte balm. The colour pay off on this product is my most favourite of the bunch. It leaves the softer edges and is so wearable. I love it for both everyday and in the evenings. Unlike some matte balms, when it fades it isn't in the slightest bit patchy or drying. I got mine in the shade 'shameless' which is number 215. Favourite matte balm ever.
