Maybelline Red Revival - Best Kept Drugstore Secret

I have a guilty pleasure...drugstore makeup. The problem with that is though, I usually buy it for the thrill of cheap makeup and usually never wear it, forget about it or the throw it away because the quality isn't up to par.
Well, let me  introduce you to Duane Reade's (or CVS... whatever) best kept secret, the ultimate blue based red lipstick. Now you know, I am a nude lips girl, ALL. THE. WAY. However, there are sometimes those mornings I wake up and want a pop of color on my face. Usually when it is very sunny, or I am wearing jeans and a white t shirt. Anyway...
Ladies, meet Maybelline's Red Revival.

Perfect consistency, not drying, super pigmented and a perfect true red, coming in at $7. There is nothing to even think about here. Go get it.

If you are lazy and don't want to hunt this baby down, you can order it at



  1. It looks good on you but I don't know if it would be the right shade for me :(

  2. That color looks fantastic on you! Love your jewels as well :)

  3. This is one of my favorites. I used to be a super snob about Maybelline products, but I find I've been gradually accumulating (and liking) quite a few of their lipsticks.

  4. Wow that is a nice deep red color. I think my skin tone is too pale for this color but I would love to try it.

  5. Pretty colour!


  6. That beats the price of Jean Queen, doesn't it?

  7. That is the perfect red, I love it. I don't think I can get it in the UK though. :( I love your necklaces, really pretty.

  8. Such a lovely red. I'm loving the maybelline line for eyes and lips recently :)

  9. That red is amazing.
    So natural.
    I have a darker tint. Think it will look great.
    by the way. beautiful necklace :)
