Revlon Really Red Lipstick: Review & Swatches!

Today's featured product is Revlon's "Really Red" Matte Lipstick. This is a very "Old Hollywood" classic red. The matte finish gives it a bit more of that vintage vibe, reminding me a lot of Marilyn Monroe's signature red, matte lips.


If you've never tried Revlon Matte lipsticks, put it on your to-do list. This is one of the most AMAZING formulations I have ever tried, and one of the few mattes I have found that doesn't make my lips look dry. When I want a new matte lipstick, I go to Revlon first. I also love their creme finishes and Colorburst line.


This lipstick is very opaque and doesn't require much building to get a solid red look. As I said above, the formulation is matte, but doesn't have a drying effect, keeping my lips looking soft. This easily wears for hours too!


And for another kiss-your-eyeballs-its-so-close lip swatch! ;) I didn't use lip liner, in order to give you the truest color of the actual lipstick.


I highly recommend this lipstick. I have a previous blog post with swatches of six other Revlon Matte shades: click here to check it out!

Would you wear it?

  1. This is a beautiful colour on you. Wish that I could pull off red but it would just highlight flaws on my face.

  8. But do you think this shade would work for my skin tone, though? I have olive toned skin.

  9. That is so pretty! I've been looking an old-Hollywood-type red lipstick for when the holidays roll around. I have a couple Revlon lipsticks, and I love them, but not any of the matte ones. I'll have to give them a try!
