Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte 006 Really Red Review and Swatches

If there was ever a coveted lipstick, Revlon Really red would be it!
It's one of those lipsticks that has a lot of hype surrounding it, but did it meet my expectations?


First of all, the packaging is simple but classic. It has a sturdry feel and the cap locks into place, so no more missing lids in my handbag.


The shade is called 006 Really Red, which couldn't be more apt. It is exactly that, a neutral red which would suit both warm and cool complexions.


The lipstick is very pigmented and is opaque in one swatch, so it would be perfect for those who have more pigmented lips. I also have incredibly dry lips, so I exfoliate before putting on any lipstick (using my Lush lip scrub).

On my medium Asian skintone, the lipstick comes up as a flattering medium red. It's not too bright nor too dark. Whilst it is a completely matte finish it did not cling to my dry patches much, it went on smoothly and feels very lightweight.

My skin is also a bit more on the neutral side, slightly yellow but has a bit of pinkness in it too, and it doesn't look too harsh on me.


The lipstick is very long lasting, it lasted more than 6 hours on me. Although towards the end my dry patches were a bit more visible and it felt a little drier, I might try putting a lip balm on underneath next time.

It does leave quite a even stain on your lips as it starts to wear off, which I quite liked. I also lick my lips a lot (because they're so dry) so I was pleasantly surprised by how long it stayed on. Although lipsticks always fades off one of my lips quite a while before the other (does anyone else have this problem?).


Overall, I really liked this lipstick and you can tell it is from Revlon, the quality is really good.

Now onto the best part, I got this lovely lipstick for only £3!
From where (I hear you ask)? From TK Maxx!

I used to visit TK Maxx before when they used to have lots of toiletries and I purchased a few nail polishes set (nails inc, OPI etc). When they changed the layout I didn't really find much so stopped going.

However, on a whim I decided to check it out and found lots of makeup. Unfortunately, a lot of lipsticks were squished, but I found this with the seal still on.

Have you tried any Revlon Lipsticks? What would you recommend?

  1. I've tried their lip butters and the balm stain but I've never tried their lipsticks! TKMaxx used to have such good cosmetics in my local branch but now it's changed a bit too.

    1. It really is :) If you have a TK Maxx by you it's worth checking it out, it's a great way to try them out for £3 rather than paying £8 :) xx

  4. I haven't tried any Revlon lipstick. The only drugstore brand I'm faithful to is Rimmel by Kate. Everything else, I buy if I see something I like. Right now my fave is L'Oreal's Flamingo Pink :D my first ever pink lipstick haha

    1. I really like Rimmel too, it was my first lipstick brand, but I've never got round to trying the Kate lipsticks (I might have to check them out soon!) Aww what a coincidence, my current favourite is a Loreal pink too
