Revlon has been one of the most celebrated makeup brands ever. Their lipsticks shades have graced the likes of yesteryear stars; like Audrey Hepburn, Cindy Crawford to Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, and Emma Stone. Revlon was responsible for the quintessential red lipstick, Fire, and Ice to one of the most unusual lipsticks like the Lime Green Conga Lime, introduced back in the 1970s. Since Revlon has been around for so many years, it has been responsible for a lot of cult classic makeup trends. Here is a rundown of some of the best vintage lipstick shades ever to come out from this company.
Revlon vintage lipsticks
1. Revlon Toast of New York
This brown lipstick worn by Cindy Crawford was the talk of the town and one of the most popular Revlon vintage lipsticks of the nineties.
2. Revlon Wine with Everything
The wine-stained lips were a cult classic a couple of years ago, and this was the go-to choice of the vintage Revlon lipstick colors at that time. This is still a very popular choice because of the fact that it can be worn by almost women of all ages.
3. Revlon Stormy Pink Vintage Lipsticks Shades
The Revlon Matte range is just right since it is not too dry and not too creamy. The shade Stormy pink is a medium warm shade that is highly versatile and just might look good on most people. Quick Fact: this shade has been around since the 1950s, it was released back then and is still in production.
4. Revlon Really Red
Do you yearn for that true reddish snow-white or those very retro-looking lips? Then this is what you have been searching for your whole life. It is a very apt dupe for the much-loved MAC Ruby Woo, but this shade came out a long time before Ruby Woo did. The only downside is that this is the most common red lipstick shade available these days, scarlet red.
Quick Fact: This shade is used by the Makeup artists of the AMC show Madmen!
5. Revlon Kiss Me Coral Vintage Lipsticks Shades
No girl’s vanity is complete without the perfect coral/peach lipstick shade. This shade comes right in that category. It is not too red, not too orange, but the perfect combination of both to give the true coral shade. Since this shade is in the super lustrous range; it is creamy without being too creamy and doesn’t make your lips look lopsided in flash photography. This shade is not a neon coral either, but just a natural flattering coral that can give your face an instant pick me up even when worn as a simple tint without any other makeup on.
6. Revlon Pink in the Afternoon
“Hand me my purse, will you, darling? A girl can’t read that sort of thing without her lipstick.”
Revlon’s “Pink in the Afternoon” is a perfect dupe for this lipstick color that Audrey Hepburn wears in this shot. Another warm toned pink, Pink in the afternoon will look extremely gorgeous on women with fairer skin tones, but it might look like a rosy pink on warmer skin tones.
7. Revlon Black Cherry
The vampy lips were a thing of the 90s and are expected to be the thing for fall 2020. Being a much wearable dupe of the MAC crowd favorite Media, Black cherry is very suitable for this purpose. It has undertones of pinks and purples to flatter almost all skin tones.
8. Revlon Cherries in the snow
This shade is one of the most celebrated lipsticks from Revlon and is still in production making it one of the “Vintage” Revlon shades. It is red with a strong pinkish undertone but people often say that it is a blue-based red, which it is NOT!!
9. Revlon Fire and Ice Vintage Lipstick Shade
This shade is another Vintage Revlon shade. It is a true red; Nothing else, just pure red. But that is the drawback of this color too. It is too red for normal people, only some people who are bold and have the right skin tone can totally pull this off.
Must-Have Lipstick Shades
We all just LOVE lipsticks and for most of us, not a single day can pass without them. And this is precisely why a lipstick can’t be picked just at random! It’s not just about the money. It is more of an investment of time in figuring out the right shades. And it is also highly emotional as for most of us looking good is so very important.
So let us take a look into all the important lipstick shades that are a must-have in every woman’s kitty and why!
This is a color which can be worn on a sunny day, or to an evening occasion like at a party, with bold and dark eyes and still manage to take every man’s breath away! And hence we say it is a must-have!
They are a major quandary for most girls. This problem gets magnified if you are really pale. Now lipstick in nude means choosing a color that is similar to your lip’s skin color. If you are among the few people who aren’t tanned and look real pale, then you possibly can have a little problem wearing nude lipsticks. This is definitely a troublesome lipstick shade for the dark skin category when it comes to teaming it up with a heavy eye look! So watch out ladies and tread carefully. Make sure that the shades suit you before you pick them.
But if you are still looking, then the MAC store is one place to definitely visit for this range.
Pink is a shade that most girls like. It’s a universal girly-girl color. I am also an ardent lover of pink lipstick shades. Skin tone doesn’t matter here. From black to brown, to yellow to pale skinned complexions, all skin complexion ladies can carry off pink lipsticks with total hits. This is definitely the perfect lipstick shade for fair skin and every other skin shade and tone you can come by!
But while choosing the shade, you must make sure of the amount of tan your skin has. The paler you are the more light pinks you should opt for and vice versa. It’s a must-have for all girls and especially for teenagers who are the newbies in the world of fashion and makeup.
Another amazing thing about this shade which I personally feel is that no matter what your age pink suits every single person. It makes you look and feel vibrant and younger. Don’t you think so?
Focus on the shade you need here and not the brand. Every brand you can think of has an extensive pink range!
Berry lipsticks can be good for outings with friends, especially where you need to be casual and chic. So it’s a must-have. Nothing can replace it. There are various berry shades of lipsticks in the market specially termed as “Berry shades”, even the elle18 Nail pops have a small cute berry color that you can try on.
Look out for the Maybelline, Revlon, and MAC for shade choices! They really have some stunning options to pick from.
Brown lipsticks are a craze among party lovers. It never goes out of fashion. But you need to tune it right and good clothes. Not every piece of clothing suits brown lipsticks. If you go for dark cocktail dresses and brown lipstick, then the odds are that people won’t be able to take their eyes off you. But if your dress is brown, then go for a lighter rather than a darker shade of brown and you’ll look dashing. Dark brown, in this case, will not have the same effect.
If your hair has red or copper highlights; then bronze brown shades and matte browns on your lips are definitely going to catch every single eye at a party! It’s no doubt a must-have!
Go and check out every brand from Revlon to MAC. Never know which one of them has the right shade for you as there plentiful shades within the brand.
Red lips never go out of fashion. From Hollywood celebs like Angelina Jolie to Kim Kardashian to Katy Perry to Rihana and Beyonce to Kate Winslate (remember the Titanic? Kate Winslet wore different shades of reds; somewhere dark, somewhere matte light red throughout the film except at certain occasions where she sported a dark nude/brown); this red lips fashion keeps coming back now and then at the red carpet.
It can give you a retro look or a modern chic look, depending on your hairstyle and the type of dress you wear. I love red lips, now and then I sport them. And I also sometimes ( during the daytime that is) love puffing a bit of powder on it. It definitely has a maroon lip lining and has a matte look for lips.
This is also a hot party favorite amongst the celebs and it is my favorite too! I am not a big brown lipstick fan but I love the maroon shade. It can go with any dress color like maroon itself or reds, or dark blues. It is good for a formal occasion and even for office wear. With a talc puffed matte finish, it can look really classy and formal, and definitely a good way to hit a party too.
Coral is another shade that we deem a must-have! This shade has the amazing ability to be eye-catching and yet delicate at the same time. Yes, so you can still keep your soft and delicately feminine look while not having to be one step behind the more daring shades.
Here is another reason why it deems it a must-have….there is a shade of coral that is made for every skin tone and shade. It is perfect for everyone and can look subtle and also playful depending on the shade that you pick!
If you’re planning on a coral shade, then make sure that MAC is on your list of brands to check out!
Everybody wants to look fun and stylish at the same time. And the peach shades are just the way to go about it. This range of shades adds a very spunky feel to your whole look. And frankly speaking, if you’re looking to keep your makeup simple yet insanely catchy, this is the way to go. This shade is best pulled out when your skin still has dew shades of tan on it. And if you tend to live in a zone where the tanning isn’t a rare summer deal, then you are simply way too lucky!
For this shade, there is always MAC but you can also give Revlon a try!
So these were the great shades of lipsticks that all of us should own. If you still lack in one of the shades mentioned, grab one today and flaunt your style quotient!
