Revlon Rich Girl Red: Swatches and Review

Red lipstick is my ultimate go-to and my ultimate weakness. But hey, a girl can never have too many, right? Enter Revlon’s Rich Girl Red… 

 First of all, I love the name (no surprise there), but something about it made me think it might be the ultimate red. You know…the oneWell, let’s see… 

 The packaging is very old school, but classy. The basic black tube gives way to a gold inner shell with the Revlon logo. You can find these lipsticks at Ulta or drugstores for around $7

 When it came time for my initial swatch, I eagerly pressed the pretty red lipstick to my hand and found it silky and slippery, but lacking pigment. Majorly. This is a back-and-forth of about 3 times to get this much pigment. Needless to say I was disappointed that the vampy siren red of my dreams was not in this tube. But that doesn’t mean this lipstick doesn’t have it’s merits, however small they may be. This is the Super Lustrous formula in the Shine category, so the ease of wear makes sense. And this is definitely not matte by any means. Overall, it is a really comfortable lipstick to wear but because of the slip it doesn’t last long. 

 
It is almost hard to believe that there is lipstick on these lips, but Rich Girl Red is on them, and I am very disappointed at the color payoff.
 
Definitely not the one.
 
Overall, if you are just getting into makeup and you want an easy-to-wear red, then maybe check this out. But if you are a veteran in beauty hauling, pass.

  1. Regarding your first sentence… I'm thinking no. 😀 I do like this one, despite, or maybe because of, the lack of payoff. It's nice and sheer, and honestly, I've been looking for a wash-of-red shade so I think I might be sold…. Very pretty on you, too.
