REVLON Suede Rhapsody A/W 2010 Collection

Revlon’s new Suede Rhapsody Collection, created by Gucci Westman for Autumn/Winter 2010 launches this month. Gucci’s inspiration came from 'women in fashion in the 1920's Art Deco period and fashion illustrations with visions of the women in Henri Bresson Lartigue’s iconic photographs – images that were effortless and chic’.

‘Wrap yourself in glamour this season, indulge and experiment with modern textures, luxurious deep tones, muted pastels and vibrant bursts of colour for a look that is ultra-feminine, refined and chic, a winter wardrobe of modern, gorgeous shades.’

The collection introduces two of their new Super Lustrous Matt lipsticks in ‘Smoked Peach’ and ‘Stormy Pink’ along with a crème finish in ‘Mink’.

From Left to Right: Smoked Peach; Stormy Pink, Mink

Smoked Peach is a gorgeous coral peach with subtle shimmer which I would describe as a frost finish rather than matt. Due to the matt finish, I found this lipstick a little drying on the lips so make sure your lips are well conditioned before you apply and you can always wear a lip gloss over the top if you prefer a glossy finish. Smoked Peach reminds me of a slightly darker, matt version of Limited Edition M.A.C Jazzed from the In the Groove Collection. Stormy Pink is a blue toned hot pink with no shimmer which is a true matt but less drying on the lips than Smoked Peach. Mink is a brown toned neutral dark nude which is extremely creamy glossy finish.

The Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad in ‘Silver Fox’ promises to stay freshly applied for up to 12 hours in Soft grey, vibrant aqua green, shimmery white (perfect highlight colour) and a deep purple.

Last of all in the collection are the Matt Suede effect Nail polishes in shades Ruby Ribbon and Emerald City, which are simply gorgeous! Emerald City is a flat matt dark racing green shade with a little shimmer, and Ruby Ribbon is a deep shimmery blood red. My pictures are taken with my iphone 4 so sorry for the crappy quality.

Revlon Lipsticks: £7.29
Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad: £7.99
Nail Enamels: £6.29
