Revlon Apricot Fantasy Lipstick

A long while ago Revlon was on sale so I picked up a couple of their lipsticks...While I kind of like the Berry Haute, on the fence about Va Va Violet...I think I really hate this one.
Lesson's learned: Don't buy shimmery drugstore lipstick...This Super lustrous lipstick feels OK on the lips but for some reason, it just looks really drying.
Apricot fantasy, what a cute name!
It's a frosty apricot that looks decent enough with very strong lighting.In normal lighting, it just looks muddy with my purple skin. On the lips, Apricot fantasy is very frosty (a no-no for people with big mouth) and while the texture is easy enough to spread, it never distribute itself evenly and the "moisturizing formula"does look somewhat wet but feel very drying. I got the lipstick last year trying to figure out a way to make it look less like mud and more like peachy lipstick, as you can see, I gave up. With a bit of "peachy" lip gloss this doesn't look as hideous.

  1. I have a similar Apricot shade from L'oreal, too bad the shade doesn't work for me! It is a bit similar to this one, your lips look great in this shade!

    Oh, thanks...Shimmering nude can easily go wrong when the texture is not smooth enough...

    Actually the one on Zhang Ziyi is called "Hua tian" in Chinese and I personally think it's pretty different from Indian bindi since they are not 3-D and doesn't come with that many elaborate styles, like your fancy peacock. (And hua tian hasn't been worn by women publicly for a few thousands years already so I don't have the gut or the outfit to wear it with.)

  4. Ohhh, I love the color! I think that might work for me actually. I look all kinds of wrong in dark lipstick.

    The color is alright but the finish is so freaking frosty...
