FOTD – Revlon Strawberry Suede Lipstick

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 10 - 2011

I don’t generally get enough time in the mornings to do much in the way of eyeshadow so I often rely on a slick of liner and a bold lipstick and to be honest, that suits me fine!  Seeing LondonMakeupGirl rock a gorgeous flick the other day inspired me to make the effort and extend my liner past the ‘comfort zone’!

I was also keen to wear my new Revlon Strawberry Suede lipstick that I picked up from eBay after hearing Lisa Eldridge extol its virtues… shame Revlon discontinued it, it’s pretty fabulous!

Products Used:

Lancome Teint Miracle in 010
Inglot Cream Concealer in 32
NARS Multiple Tint in Beverly Hills

NARS Ondine
Stargazer Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Rimmel Volume Flash x10
Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake in Gaze

Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick

    The lipstick looks stunning on you, I don’t think I could ever pull off this look. Red lipstick never suits me.


  2. Interesting how we all are inspired by the Dior promo ( I did such look the other day myself). You look sexey on these photos 😉 x

  3. I can’t get over how thin you look! I always found you very pretty, but in these pictures you look positively stunning! Old school glamour at its best x

    Looks like you haven’t converted one reader to red lippie!
    You look lovely.

  6. Eliane says:

    Love! Strawberry Suede is one of my favorties too. But now that it is discontinued I do not want to use it up! Haha x

  7. gio says:

    You look gorgeous! Red lips really suit you!

  8. Rachael says:

    Just picked this up on eBay for £3.20 with postage!

  9. Grace London says:

    Really pretty on you – very Ava Gardner. Completely off topic, but I do like your top! Thanks for mention. x

  10. Allie says:

    Brilliant look! Also love the top, where is it from?

  11. Tamara says:

    I love this, I was sad to see the colour go too. It’s pretty versatile (though I don’t think I’d consider red), and of course love the matte finish.

  12. Phyrra says:

    Strawberry Suede looks great on you. I love it :>

  13. Sydney says:

    Working that up-do!

    This looks great on you. Very disappointed to hear that it has been discontinued, going to have to browse the old ebay in search of my own one now *loving grumble*

    Wow! I got lucky then. I was at a discount shop and they had packs of 4 Revlon lipsticks for $5 and one of them in my pack was Strawberry Suede! There were 2 of the Mattes and 2 of the Moondrops in each pack. I’m loving the Moondrops too, they are so moisturizing and the colors are so vibrant. These will be perfect for summer.

      Was this a store in the USA? I’d love to look for those.

      • Donna says:

        I’m sorry I missed this. The store is in the US but only in New England, it’s Ocean State Job Lot. If you aren’t in NE don’t give up hope, a lot of the stuff I find there winds up at Big Lots too, so you may have better luck there.

    I bought the Strawberry Suede lipstick on Amazon as soon as she mentioned this shade in a video! I went on a major search for similar shades. So far I have Revlon Colorstay in Ripened Red, Revlon Cha Cha Cherry, Revlon Fire & Ice, NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Amsterdam, and Boots Wild Volume in Forever Cherry. I bought a lot of lipsticks trying to get a close match, and those are all great shades. I’d say the Boots comes close.

  16. Beautiful! x

    Rebecca, comments aren’t letting me reply directly to you, hopefully you’ll see this:
