Review: Revlon Sizzling Pink OR The Search for the Perfect Coral Lipstick

P1090923 P1090929P1090931As you may be aware, I am completely cuckoo for Spring. Scarily so. I want to wear a floral crown to work. I want to walk barefoot  and dance in the sun on lunch times. It’s silly, but refreshing. Something a little more normal acceptable that I have been obsessing over is coral lipstick. I am just IN LOVE with the look.

Now, with most beauty/fashion items, you need to find the perfect product FOR YOU. Different skin tones, tastes and needs all come into play here, so don’t be discouraged if you have a differing opinion to mine. That’s good! I would love some discussion on here if you agree or disagree with my choices :)  Moving on, after much swatching at the drugstore yesterday, I found one that I was really happy with.

Revlon Lasting Lipstick in Pink Sizzle is my current favourite coral colour. I chose this one over a lip crayon or lip butter, because I wanted a longer lasting pigmentation, without being too drying. I also steered away from the Vivids by Maybelline because that wasn’t the tone of coral I wanted. I think it’s not too pink, not too orange. Just the perfect mid range that I had in mind.


- Accessible

- Perfect mid-range between pink and orange.

- Not drying or sticky

- Fairly good lasting power for the average lipstick, about three hours before reapplication


- Expensive for a drugstore lipstick. Australian drugstore prices are outrageous

What do you think of this lipstick? Should I continue my search? Have I found the one?

Stay Minty!

    It’s ok but I think (for me personally that is) I’d like something more pigmented? It’s quite sheer and looks more like lip gloss than lipstick.
    It is a very pretty shade though :)

      Very true. It is quite sheer, but I think that for “day” lipsticks (which is what I was looking for in a coral lipstick) I need the sheerer look. I normally have more pigmented lipsticks for night time or sometimes during the day in Winter and Autumn :)

    Really nice blog. Its always nice to find other bloggers like me. :) Keep up the good work

  3. I love this colour! I have one similar to this but don’t wear it too often since I’m more of a bright lip kind of gal. I’m definitely with you on the Australian drugstore prices, wowee, it’s so much cheaper to have a makeup obsession in America! haha. Lovely post :)

      I love rocking a bright lip, but coral bright lips just look strange on me I think! This is the best one I’ve found so far for sure :)

      And my goodness yes it is. It might all be relevant in the end but $20 per lipstick just seems crazy when you can buy an American MAC Lipstick for $16.

    I absolutely love the colour and from what you said, the formula is perfect too. Great find!

    • themintedbeauty on October 18, 2013 at 4:23 PM said:

      Thank you lovely :) It is definitely one of the nicer formulas from Revlon. Some of their different shades can have different formulas which is confusing!

    The colour is really pretty! I love that its quite natural but still has a pop of colour. I rarely buy lipsticks because like you said, they’re so expensive here!
