I don't particularly enjoy matte lip colors but I collected quite a few from this line.
Generally speaking, they all go on smoothly and feel light on lips. The best thing is that they are not drying like some matte lipsticks. (*cough* Mac Ruby Woo)
The matte formula especially shines through red colors, in my opinion.
They stay on for hours and fade away beautifully without the drying effect.
Thanks to the matte finish, they never look gaudy or over-the-top although the colors are quite intense.

They are both blue-based red colors.
In The Red is darker with some brown undertone
and Really Red is brighter and more of a true red.

I heard these are good dupes for MAC red lipsticks like Ruby Woo and Russian Red.
I had Ruby Woo years ago (loved the color, btw), but I had to swap it away because of the incredibly drying formula.
I can't make exact comparisons but I think Ruby Woo is closer to Revlon In The Red.
It wouldn't hurt to try these two shades if you are looking for good wearable red lipsticks with staying power. Plus these are super affordable for such great quality lipsticks. :)
What do you think?
Have you tried Revlon matte lipstick range? ;)
