Some shades available (from left):
* Soft Suede, Blush, Rosey Nude, Hazelnut, Sienna, Fuchsia, Carnation, Mauve, Soft Rose, Peach, Plum, Raspberry, Crimson, Coral, True Red.


Fyi, Jessica Alba is wearing True Red on Revlon's Colorburst Ad.

PROS:
* packaging looks expensive - i love the quilted matte bullet!
* Revlon logo etched on lipstick similar to Chanel Lipsticks
* really feels lightweight, as if im not wearing lipstick.
* creamy texture that glides evenly
* non-drying formula
* does not settle into fine lines
* color is buildable
* lasts about 3-4 hours on my lips
* shades that I have are not too shimmery nor matte

CONS:
* a bit expensive - but I wouldn't mind paying for a lipstick as pretty as this!

TIPS:
Eventhough this is a moisturising lipstick, don't forget to use lipbalm underneath.

ADDICTION FACTOR:
I want to try True Red and Carnation (they said this is a MAC Strayin' dupe)

RATING :
5 / 5

Swatches

Thanks for the review! I really wanted to love soft nude but it completely washed me out and looked sickly on me. They are really smooth though. Maybe I'll look into peach :)

I personally love all the colors. just gorgg. My faves right now are Soft Nude, Peach, I have to try Carnation and True red! Yes a tad pricey but its good to get them in a BOGO sale. I also made a Review. Check it out if you'd like.

I love how Peach looks on your lips. Argh! Don't tempt me into buying one. LOL.

Lots of love,

Mauve and peach looks pretty on you:)

I have peach and fuchsia and i love them! got it for auction on ebay for $3.25 each. Can't afford here in the philippines too pricey for a lipstick :)
