Review: Revlon Stormy Pink Lipstick

revlon stormy pink lipstick review swatch nc30
Stormy Pink is one of Revlon's most popular shades yet it was only until a few weeks ago that I was prompted to pick it up at the drugstore. A friend of mine wears this shade often and she's the reason I got it, it looks so pretty on her. Stormy Pink is a bright, cool/blue toned pink. It's not for the color shy. Although it can be work sheerly, it looks best at its fullest, most opaque potential (2-3 layers) because of its matte texture.

In general, I find Revlon's matte formulation to be a bit drying. I prefer Wet'n'Wild's $3 matte lipsticks better. However, Stormy Pink isn't its worst offender. It's looks slightly powdery upclose but it doesn't dry out my lips. The pigmentation is good and the color lasts for several hours. Overall, I adore Stormy Pink. It's a great color. I consider it a tamer alternative to MAC's Candy Yum Yum because it's bright but not neon.

Have you tried this shade as well? Do you often purchase products after seeing them on your friends?

  3. I think you nailed it on the comparison to Candy Yum Yum! I'm not much for pink lips, but this really does look lovely on you.

  8. Love this shade. I like cool toned pinks the best as they suit my skin tone much better than the rest. Looks lovely on you xx

  9. I always buy something if my friend has it and I like it... or if i see it on a blog or youtube video! Being a blogger and having friends that are into makeup is not good for my bank balance!

  15. Revlon is my no.1 brand for lipsticks and I love the finish of this and the color looks great on you but I'm so shy about colors like this! I feel like they make me look a bit washed out :(

  16. Friends definitely prompt me to buy things but I'm always wary because my coloring is so different from many of theirs!! Sometimes it's easy to forget that just because it looks good on them doesn't mean it'll look good on you. Thankfully this was a good purchase for you Coco! I personally don't care for the matte formula Revlon makes (way too dry feeling and chalky looking) but I love this color on you :)

  22. This shade looks gorgeous on you! I love Revlon's Super Lustrous lipsticks as I find their formulas to be so creamy and easy to apply- but I haven't tried the Matte formulas before. What a shame that it was too drying for you :(

  24. I don't know why, but I never tend to take a look at the Revlon stand whenever I go to a drugstore. I've seen so many amazing swatches of their lipsticks, though! I really need to start paying more attention to their lipsticks.

  25. Such a pretty colour on you :) I've been tempted by this shade for the longest time, but most reviews I've read have mentioned the formula on Stormy Pink is a bit dry and patchy...so I wasn't too sure. Can't deny it looks lovely on you though!

  28. Have you tried Really Red from this line? It's gorgeous! A true red, stays on so well and it's not as drying. I have Stormy Pink too and it's really pretty as well - looks great on you :)
