FOTD : Neutral eyes, Matte Red Lips

 

Revlon Matte Lipstick Really Red is one of my favorite reds! I have quite a few reds  but none of them look as richly ‘red’ and true as this one! I generally pick cool toned reds and I ended up with this warm red as it was a free gift with some other purchases. I have previously worn this shade in my Festive makeup look HERE.

In this look, I’ve paired this stunning red with neutral eyes and cheeks using the Clinique palette I received with my December Vellvette box. I’m not entirely happy with the texture of the powders in this palette especially the blush which is quite powdery and looks ashy on my skin. I’ll be swatching and reviewing this palette in full detail soon.

Products used for the Face :

 

  1. Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup : Warm Golden
  2. Ben Nye Luxury Powder : Cameo
  3. Blush from Clinique Palette

These pictures have been taken without flash. If you notice, the Revlon Whipped Creme Makeup doesn’t quite make the skin look as flawless without flash. Don’t know what I’m talking about? See the previous FOTD with the same foundation with flash.

The Clinique blush has a bit of sheen to it but instead of making the skin glow, it looks ashy on my skin and highlights the pores. Not happy!

    Hi Ankita. I accept about the flash point but this looks good as well. I loved the way u shape your lips with a liner without making it look ‘made-up’. Can u pl pl pl review the revlon whipped cream? I’m waiting for your review so that I can purchase next week before a family function. Thankies 🙂

      The 2 shades I got are not great either but they show up on me. On warm/dusky skin, they would look ashy and pale!

    How does Revlon Really Red compare with MAC Ruby Woo. Can you do a comparison post on all the reds you have please?

      Hi Dollie, Ruby Woo is strongly blue based, it you sheer it out it will look quite pink. Revlon Really Red is quite neutral with a slight hint of warm orange so when sheered out, its a tomato red tint. I will do a post on my reds, I did one swatch post few months back but my collection has grown since then 🙂

    This is my favourite FOTD of yours to date. You look amazing and that lipstick is gorgeous. Personally, I prefer FOTDs without a bright flash because it looks more natural.

    I’m planning to do a similar look for one of the weddings that I have to attend. Wearing an off white saree with gold work on this and I think the red lips will really stand out.
