Simply Lippy Challenge Day 316 | Revlon Colourburst Lipstick in Shade 030, Fucshia

As beauty brands go, I really haven’t tried all that much from Revlon over the years. When I think of the brand however, I immediately think of lipstick; I’m not sure why but I always just associate them with it.

This lipstick is on loan from my Mum for the purposes of my challenge, and one I have never tried before today. Immediately, I was drawn to the shade which is a deep fucshia, and straight off I knew I’d like that at least, if nothing else.

When I applied it however, not only did I love the shade, but I also loved the pigment and formula. The pigment is rich and bold, with great colour pay off and a full coverage finish. The texture is creamy and not too light, meaning it blends very easily without any dragging, and leaves a lovely smooth finish on the lips.

The finish itself is cream, maybe with a slight satin element to it. It’s not too glossy which means it stays in place pretty well throughout the day, and I loved the texture of it too.

I have to say, I really didn’t have high expectations for this lipstick, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much I liked wearing it. So much so, I might be robbing it from my Mum for good!

Have you tried any Revlon lipsticks? I’m beginning to feel like I’m missing out on some great lippy choices so if you have any recommendations, make sure you send some my way!

Simpl Lippy Challenge Day 111 | Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Shade E527B, Fuchsia with Blue Pearl

Friday’s lipstick of the day was from Wet n Wild, a lipstick they very kindly sent me to try a few weeks back. 

As I say all the time here, I’m a big fan of bright lipstick shades, and am not one to shy away from a bold look – most of the time, but this shade was just a little much for me.

It’s not really the colour that gets me with this one, but more the shiny pearlised finish that remind me of fluorescent pink lipsticks from my teenage years, that let’s be honest, really didn’t look great.

The consistency of the lipstick is creamier than you would expect so I do like the texture and it layers very nicely. The pigment is also really good as you can see from my lips in the pictures!

Staying power was okay, nothing special, but in this instance I was sort of glad about that because I felt this was just a little too bold and shiny for a day in the office.

I don’t think it will be a shade I wear again, but overall I like Wet n Wild lipsticks quite a lot, this particular one just wasn’t for me.
