Review and Swatches: Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick in shade Peach Silk

I picked this lipstick from Ebay after trying out the shade “Gold Dipped Rose” from the same range. I loved the quality and the feel of the lipstick and the fact that it is one of Revlon’s classic range, also made me pick another shade “Peach Silk” from the same range.
Check my Review on Gold Dipped Rose here for details on the lipstick like price, ingredients, packaging etc..
My experience with Revlon Moon Drops Peach Silk
I will start by saying the plus points. This is a very beautiful bright color which is a nice mix of coral-pink-orange shades. I cannot do justice to the color in photos but it is much lovelier in the bright natural sun light. The lipstick is creamy as opposed to the frosted Gold Dipped Rose shade and glides on easily over lips. One swipe is enough to get a good layer of color as this is much pigmented.  Though it’s creamy, it doesn’t melt off like my NYX ones and it doesn’t settle in fine lines also.
Now the bad part and this is quite personal opinion. IMHO, this is too bright a shade for Indian skin tones and needs to be toned down with a lighter shade lip gloss to be wearable. I am medium fair wheatish skin toned with un-even skin pigmentation thanks to Chennai sun, so I have to be very careful in my makeup.
Even with 1 swipe, I can easily enter a contest for “Today’s Neon Lips Look” and probably win it as well! On lips, the pinkish shade becomes less prominent and orange takes over [I dono how this happens, How to guess when buying!].
This color, if worn alone highlights my darker skin tone, all the imperfections on my face and the only noticeable feature becomes the lips! So as you can guess, if you are wearing this shade, it has to be on a perfect makeup day and with strong but not loud eye makeup to divide the attention. I pair this with a beige lip gloss, brownish smoky eyes & peach-toned blush for a day wear and with jewel-colored eyes & shimmer blush for night wear, but the day wear look is much better.

Will I buy this again? Unless my skin turns at least 2 tones fair, I don’t think I will be able to use this regular but I love the range and I will try some other shades if I get a chance.
I found this interesting poster on Revlon ad from 1970. J
