This is a more detailed review for Maybelline Colorsensational Red Revival. This is a thick and very pigmented near true red lipstick, it leans very slightly to the blue end I think. It’s got a texture that you don’t find much in lipsticks anymore, very heavy and a bit waxy. It’s got a retro feel with packaging, and the smell is slightly old fashioned too – smells like old lady.
The colour is fun though and makes me think of those songs about lipstick on your collar. This is the sort of lipstick that will leave a mark on your husbands collar is you lean on him. I wear it for burlesque because it’s so vivid, but also gets me in that retro glamour mood.
Just a reminder that the comparison swatches are here.
