I had been eyeing Revlon Lipsticks from quite some time, but being a student I don’t like to spend 500 bucks on a lipstick. I always look for alternative affordable options because firstly I haven’t started earning as of now and secondly there are so many affordable options available so why to burn a hole in the pocket. Perhaps once I start earning, I can indulge myself in buying fancy stuffs; I hope you know what I mean. This lipstick that I will be reviewing has been gifted to me by one of my relative as she knows how fond I am of makeup and I was truly excited to try this out.
430: Soft-silver Rose is a beautiful soft pink shade which has shimmers into it and these shimmers are visible even when I wiped off its swatches from my wrist while clicking pictures for blog. Basically, like a pearl, this lipstick gives somewhat a silver shade and provides slight duality in the lipstick color. The texture of the lipstick is soft like a lip balm; it does not settle into fine lines and application of it is quite smooth. There’s definitely no requirement of wearing a lip balm underneath, the lipstick on its own is very moisturizing. Although in the bullet the color appears quite pink but on lips, it gives more of shimmers and soft pinkish hue. Those of you, who look for soft pinks, would love this color. One swipe isn’t enough; I swiped it for three times to build up on the color intensity. Lastly, the staying power of it is not recommendable at all; maybe because it is the pearl finish variant and not a matte one. It so easily gets swiped off from the lips, leaving behind no traces of color but only shimmers. It would look gorgeous on fair to wheatish skin tone.
When I first swatched this color, honestly I did not like it. Later after few days I tried it again and somehow it appealed to me. The color is slightly tricky to pull off, but it is apt for a dewy fresh spring look. On lips, the shimmers aren’t too prominent but still are apparent.
Overall, I’d say it will be best for day time looks or with bold smokey eye. For dried and chapped lipped ladies, this might provide adequate moisturization though. But if you don’t like shimmery lipsticks, stay away from this shade.
