My Favorite Revlon Lipstick Colors

LipsMaybe it’s the wall of colors, 82 in all, that attracts me, or maybe it’s the classic black and gold tube. Maybe it’s the old-fashioned names that tickle my fancy. Whatever the reason Revlon makes my favorite drugstore lipstick. I don’t think another brand manufactures so many colors, and within their vast selection are several shades that look really good on me. Here are my favorite Revlon lipstick colors.

Disclosure: I have not been paid by Revlon for this review and I purchased all the lipstick with my own funds, however, there are affiliate links embedded below. If you purchase a lipstick through the link I will receive a small commission. Thank you for your support!

My Favorite Revlon Lipstick Colors – The Darks

The best Revlon Lipstick - Dark Colors

From left to right: Blackberry, Raspberry Bite and Black Cherry

Dark lipsticks are dramatic by their very nature, and I love a little lip drama in my life.

Blackberry is a gorgeous, lush, wine color. Of all the burgundy lipsticks I reviewed here, this one is the most wearable. Unfortunately I can’t find it online. The original blackberry dates from the early 1990’s, and they brought it back a few years ago but Revlon is constantly updating their line of colors. If you like burgundy lipstick I would recommend picking one of these up before it’s discontinued.

Raspberry Bite is a dark fuchsia. It’s definitely a statement but the bright color keeps it whimsical. This is a thick, heavy, creme lipstick, which I like, but it’s not for everyone.

Black Cherry is crazy dark, almost black. It’s not always an easy one to wear but applied with a light hand this creme formula is mysterious and sexy.

My Favorite Revlon Lipsticks – The Warm Shades

The best Revlon lipstick: Warm colors

From left to right: Blushing Nude, Kiss Me Coral, Really Red Matte, Abstract Orange

I don’t always wear dark lipstick. Sometimes I like my colors more lighthearted and fun. In this lineup is the only nude lipstick I can wear easily, a bright coral, a perfect red and a shimmery orange color.

Blushing Nude is the only nude lipstick I’ve found at the drugstore that I like. Unlike bright red, coral and pink, I can’t just pick out a nude that looks good on my skin tone. This one, however, has enough color to look like something on my lips. This rosy nude creme is the tube I reach for when I want that “better than lip” look.

Kiss Me Coral is a bright pinky-orange creme lipstick. It’s fun and dramatic.

Really Red Matte is as close to a perfect red as I’ve found anywhere. It’s an easy lipstick to wear, neither too warm nor too cool, and the matte formula means the staying power is exceptional.

Abstract Orange is a shimmery copper. Unlike the other lipsticks in this lineup it’s rather sheer.

You can find all these lipsticks at your local drugstore or online at Target and Walgreens. The affiliate links provided in the article should go directly to the lipstick and color.

    I have to admit something: I don’t think I’v ever owned Revlon lipstick!

    Some of the lighter shades are very tempting! I have to see if I can pick up a tube here in Singapore

    Kiss Me Coral is my favourite.
    I love Revlon Lipstick so much.

      Kiss me coral is by far my favorite coral lipstick. Glad you like it too.

    Heather, probably half of the lipsticks I own are Revlon. I wear True Red, Mulberry, Golden Grape, Sea Pearl – more than I can remember to list. I like the fact that they don’t dry out my lips like so many others do. Now I’m dying to try the Raspberry Bite!

    I love the names of the lipsticks. Unfortunately I have creases near my lips (old age). And so far I have found only 1 lipstick that does not creep into those folds and creases and that is Sensai (of Kanebo, a Japanese brand). And only their line The Lipstick. They have a perfect red for me, but no dark brown, which I would also like.
    Oh well… If those are my problems, I have nothing to complain about.

      These revlon lipsticks do not creep around on my lips. It’s one of the reasons I like their lipsticks actually, no bleed!

    The Raspberry and the Kiss Me Coral colours look gorgeous! I do like some of the rich pink and deeper hues that I’ve been seeing recently. I will have to check these out! 🙂

      I think you’d look great in both colors. Raspberry bite is really fun and bright. I think you’d like it.

      Revlon has something for everyone!

    I found Raspberry Bite a few years ago and it is gorgeous! I’m addicted to all of the rich dark shades from Revlon, but Black Cherry–because it goes patchy on me without full lip liner. I recommend Blackberry, Mauvy Night, and Teak Rose.

    • Rebecca August 20, 2013 at 11:59 pm #

      Oops, you have Blackberry already. 🙂

    • Heather Fonseca August 24, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

      Hi Rebecca. I’ll have to try out Mauvy Night and Teak Rose. I don’t have those in my collection.

    looking for the name of a revlon lipstick in the fall of 1972 or 73. I also had the polish that matched, It was a wine color. Help.
