Revlon Bellini was released for Spring/Summer 2012 as part of the Gucci Westman collection. While I don’t currently have confirmation on whether or not this is permanent, I have seen it with the permanent shades of glosses. It looks like it might be permanent, and that makes me happy. This is a really great gloss.
Bellini is a light, milky coral shade. Think of it as the peachy toned sister of NARS Turkish Delight. It is so damn pretty in the tube, but I can’t wear it straight. Pale skin tones (my skin appears just a tad brighter in photos like the one below in front of the window, but in person is a light/medium) might be able to wear it straight, but it washes me out. It is a bit too nude for me.
So why do I still love it if it is too nude for me?
It pairs extremely well with a lot of my lipsticks and lip liners. My lips just look so lovely when I top my lipstick or lipliner with this. It seems to add a brightness to the shades I top it off with. It is my new favorite gloss.
Application is good. It has a foam tip applicator similar to doe foots, but without the shape you typically see with them. This is a bit of a sticky gloss, but not that sticky. I am not a fan of sticky glosses, and this one doesn’t bother me a bit. It doesn’t have a nice flavor to it, but it doesn’t have a bad one either. If they could give this a sweet taste I would love Revlon for doing it. Wear time is about 3 hours, but that is pretty typical for me with glosses.
Revlon Bellini retails for around $7.49 and can be found at most major drugstores nationwide.
