Revlon Matte Lipstick

Revlon has had their matte collection out for way over a year now. When it first came out I bought a couple of eye shadows and a lipstick called "Really Red." I normally wouldn't buy a red lipstick but for Halloween I was dressing up as a pin up girl and I thought Really Red had a vintage pin up feel because it was matte. Well, I wasn't really impressed. I thought it was messy and hard to get off. It also felt really dry on my lips. I even tried putting on chapstick first, but it still made my lips look pretty flaky. So, I basically stuffed that away in a makeup bag for about a year and I just pulled it out for this post.
Here is a pic of "Really Red":

At the beginning of this year our cosmetic department at Walgreens started to receive new Revlon Matte lipstick shades. We also discontinued carrying many of the old Revlon Matte lipsticks to make room for the new shades. As I was going through the new Revlon makeup one lipstick really caught my eye. It was Revlon's Super Lustrous Matte lipstick in "Stormy Pink." I thought it was such a beautiful color. I loved that it was light pink with a blue/purple undertone...I've never seen a lipstick that shade before (at least not at a drugstore). However, I was so iffy about buying it. As mentioned, I was not impressed by the previous Revlon Matte lipstick I tried. In the end I gave in and bought it anyway. I'm so happy I did because it is actually very moisturizing and while it is less pigmented then "Really Red," I actually like that because it's appropriate for daytime and the color ended up looking great with my skin tone. I noticed later on the bottom of the two lipstick tubes that "Stormy Pink" is a super lustrous matte lipstick while "Really Red" is just plain matte. That might explain why "Stormy Pink" was so moisturizing, but who knows.
There are also other Revlon Matte lipsticks I'm dying to try like Smoked Peach, Sky Pink and Pink About It.
Here are Stormy Pink and Really Red side to side:
