Brand Name: Revlon

Lipstick Colour: Couture

Price: £8.99

Lipcote Rating: 3/5

Our eyes lit up when we read ‘food proof’ in the description of this hard wearing lipstick from Revlon, as keeping lippy on whilst munching is always a high priority! We chose Couture, a rich raspberry red packed full of aloe and shea butter to keep chapped lips at bay.

 

As much as this lipstick claims it doesn’t quit, the super creamy texture of this range means that it applies more like a stain than a traditional lipstick, and needs a fair amount of blotting in between layers to work with Lipcote well. The finished effect is a juicy warm pink, perfect for the worn in lips trend carrying through this season. It works well with a deeper shaded lip liner that could build some two-tone colour, and add some real character to this smooth suede-like formula. If worn by itself, it’s got a great vibrancy to it, even though the finish is quite opaque.

 

The casing is unassuming, but functional with clear casing showcasing the chubby slanted bullet, mimicking a lip balm. As much as this product would work well in your makeup kit, it isn’t very glam and therefore not a great present choice! Overall, a great everyday product, and could be a secret weapon to arm you with an easy sophisticated look, but not something we would show off to friends! X
