No makeup look is complete without lipstick. Lipstick adds just the right amount of colour to your face and creates a put-together look. Different shades evoke disparate moods and work for a variety of occasions. Revlon has been gracing women's faces with their signature shades since 1932, and it continues to perfect its formulas and add more options to its range of products.Lipstick Formulas
Choosing lipstick isn't just about picking the right colour, so Revlon offers a variety of ways for women to apply lipstick. There are soft, moisturising cream formulas, or gel lipsticks that glide on effortlessly with a wash of colour. Liquid lipstick goes on like a lip gloss but offers the look of a lipstick, and a lip pencil gives you complete control as you fill in your lips with colour. Of course, there's always the classic lipstick in a tube that women have used for decades.Lipstick Finishes
The way the lipstick looks once it's on your lips is known as the finish (or effect). Matte lipstick has a flatter look and no shine, while satin lipstick has a finish that's pearlier. Shimmer lipstick has a bit of glitter to it for a special effect, and sheer lipstick produces a lighter wash of colour than full-colour lipstick does. An example of this would be Revlon's ColourBurst Lip Butter, which is a combination balm and lipstick that creates a lighter look for everyday wear. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick imparts a shiny, glossy look to lips, while Super Lustrous Matte lipstick produces colour without shine.Lipstick Features
Modern lipsticks aren't just colour for your lips. Different formulas and finishes provide distinct features depending on your specific needs. Long-wearing lipsticks, such as the Revlon ColourStay line, stay on all day even after you eat, drink and talk. Hydrating lipsticks add moisture to your lips while providing colour at the same time. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, you may want to look for a hypoallergenic or oil-free lipstick. Lipsticks with added vitamins keep your lips soft, hydrated and reduce the look of lines or wrinkles.Lipstick Shades
Revlon offers a rainbow of lipstick colours, from the sheerest, lightest pinks and corals to the deepest and richest burgundy and red shades, and everything in between. Choose the shade that best compliments your skin tone, or switch up shades for each season, such as lighter colours during the spring and summer and darker tones during the fall and winter season. Colours like a nude rose match every skin tone.
