Isn’t this the cutest packaging ever. Seriously, I think this is a very innovative packaging for the Indian market and will appeal anyone who loved comic strips.
Revlon lesser or cheaper brand for the budget conscious or college goers is Street wear cosmetics which prices it’s products quite less than the core Revlon products.
You will find everything from foundation to nail polishes and frankly atleast these lipsticks are not that bad. I stumbled upon these while I was swatching the Revlon Highlighting palette. I immediately saw these comic strip packaging which I ought were so cute and bought the lipsticks just for that.
Well, the new packaging really worked to attract your eyes directly to them, and atleast I couldn’t resist buying them. Also the caps click lock which is great as they won’t easily on pen in your purse.
I got 2 shades from the lipstick range and a single lipgloss that I’ll review on later. The shades I got are Crisp Caramel and Berrylisciuos. Crisp Caramel is a nude brown shade while Berrylisciuos is a two toned pink and plum shade which I personally love.
Formulation of the lipsticks are however confusing. Crisp caramel shade was average and I didn’t find it very smooth or creamy and yet you won’t end up with patchy lipstick. While the Berryliscious was smoother in application and more creamier and performed better on my lips.
Considering the price range, I think they perform as expected and last your average 3.5 hours without eating or drinking tea. They do transfer and are a little drying so a lip balm before application is a good idea. I don’t love them but I don’t hate them either.
Overall, these are budget lipsticks which perform good enough and would appeal widely to college goers who might be budgeting or are just getting into makeup. I’m not sure if I would be trying more colours in this range but only time will tell if I do find any other interesting shades.
