Revlon Lipstick in 'Skyline Pink' | £7.49
Yes. I bet you're all rolling your eyes aren't you? 'Beth's blogging about another lipstick'. If you've been following me for a while you will know that they're my biggest weakness. I don't feel quite 'finished' without a slick of lipstick. And this little beauty is one of my newest additions to my stash. I'd been eyeing up Mac's 'Pretty Please' for a while - and although i liked it - I just couldn't bring myself to buy it. This is when I spotted this offering from Revlon - an extremely similar shade that's pretty much identical. I adore Revlon lipsticks. I think they're bang on the mark and rival some of my high-end lipsticks in terms of both quality, packaging and pigmentation and I've built up quite the collection of them over the past couple of years ('Cherries in the Snow' is the perfect winter pink - one of my all time faves!). I love the gold tubing and black lettering around the middle - so simple but really elegant and totally worthy of the price tag in every way.
'Skyline Pink' is a pearl finish - which has a certain frostiness to it that is very 'love or hate' - but I adore it!. The formula is lovely - really moisturising (like all Revlon lipsticks I've tried), not at all gritty and lovely and smooth to apply. It is admittedly the type of colour that you can only pull off at certain times of the year (definitely not with a tan!) due to it's milky, paler appearance, but it's simply stunning when worn in the right way. It's a beautiful pastel pink, with flecks of shimmer throughout it - almost appearing silver in certain light. It's quite a 'young' shade - and at 23 I'm still unsure I can really pull it off but baby pinks have always been a guilty pleasure of mine and I'm determined I will make it work. It looks lovely when worn lightly, or over another pink lipstick or paired with a slightly darker gloss. I will have to make some sort of 'Face of the Day' with it over the autumn/winter time - I can see it looking lovely with a paler complexion and a smokey eye once the weather turns colder. Skyline Pink isn't for everyone - but I love it. It's a little nod to my younger self and with a smokey eye I reckon it's going to be a winner for me - it's pearlescent, shimmery, pink and undoubtedly very, very girly. What's not to like?! If you've never tried Revlon lipsticks I highly recommend them - they're some of the best drugstore lipsticks I've ever used and they do some absolutely stunning shades. I might have to do a collection post over the next few months?
Have you tried Revlon Lipsticks? Love them as much as me? :)
