Revlon Smoked Peach Matte Lipstick review + swatch
The packaging, as per all Revlon’s lipsticks, is sleek and classic. The tubes of the matte lipsticks is matte and silver (rather than gold), which is pretty nice.
The colour of Revlon Matte Lipstick in Smoked Peach is a darker peach rather than a pastel one, almost an orange. It’s a very wearable peach when compared to very white based peaches, so it’s a good alternative for people with darker skintones or who don’t like very pastel lip colours.
The finish is a lovely satin-y matte. The matte finish paired with the peach colour gives it a very retro feel, perfect for pairing with 60s inspired eyes. The finish isn’t completely matte, so it doesn’t make your lips look even worse than they actually are, or pick up every single little flaw in them- but a little exfoliation and balm doesn’t go amiss.
What sets this matte apart from other formulas is how non-drying it is on your lips. It’s not ‘non-drying for a matte’, it’s pretty good for lipstick in general. I would say, however, that the wear time isn’t quite as long as other matte formulas.
There is one fly in the ointment for me though. In the UK these are £7.49. While I do really like the formula and I don’t think they’re hugely overpriced, I’ve only picked up Revlon lipsticks when I’ve been getting another 2 things on 3 for 2.

You’ll like if: you like the look of matte lips but find other formulas too drying.
You won’t like if: you’re not a fan of matte lips, or you like your mattes with not a single hint of shine.
Bottom line: a really lovely matte formula, I can see why they’re so popular… Might have to invest in some more now!
