I don't think I've been as excited about a drugstore launch as I was for these little matte beauties to hit our UK shelves! I'm definitely more of a matte girl than I am glossy and the range of colours they've brought out make it impossible for there not to be something for everything - and to add to the temptation Boots have thrown in a 3 for 2 on all Revlon so it would be rude not to pick up a couple.
To take advantage of the Boots offer I got three shades - Mischievous is my staple peachy orange, Audacious is the most perfect bright orangey red and elusive was a last minute addition to my basket because they didn't have the one I wanted in stock and has actually turned out to be my favorite which is a dusky pink shade. There are another seven colours to chose from ranging from deep purples to 'your lips but better' nudes, I've still got my eye on Unapologetic which is a really standout pinky red but as it was sold out everywhere it looks like everyone else had their eye on it too! Sometimes mattes can be hit or miss when it comes to formula but Revlon have got these spot on, they're not drying and although they go on really matte they're almost creamy and soft. I couldn't ask for a better colour pay off in one swipe and like most matte formulas once they're on, they're on whatever you may be doing with your lips! They have a minty scent which I quite like and they twist up from the bottom so you don't need to faff around with a pencil sharpener, I also really like the matte packaging and the fact that they're all colour coordinated so it's easy to just grab and go.
I've had the most horrendous cold this week so that's why there's a lack of lip swatches, no one wants to see my dry, germy pout and I didn't want to miss out on the excitement while I was getting them in tip top condition but hopefully you get the gist of the colours with these swatches! I'm definitely going to be going back for a couple more shades and I can't see myself wearing anything else on my lips for a while - long live the matte finish!
