You see, I have been interested in matte lipsticks for some time now despite my usual preference for lipsticks. But, the doubts - matte lipsticks might look aging on me and dry up my poor lips! So I didn't want to spend too much on something I wasn't sure that I'd get much use out of.
After trying Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Sultry Samba, I even feel encouraged to wear matte shades on my lips more often. Maybe I worried for nothing, or we now live in a better world where we can get quality matte lipsticks at affordable price.
It seems intense brighter colors tend to look more beautiful in matte finish, too. Maybe this makeup game is about the balance more than anything.
Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Sultry Samba
Sultry Samba is a part of the Revlon summer collection of last year, Rio Rush by Gucci Westman.
It is supposedly a limited edition but still available online.
Sultry Samba is a beautiful hot pink with a hint of plum.
It is bright but easily wearable for many different skintones.
It glides on the lips and feels super light.
Coverage is sheer to medium and definitely buildable.
The color lasts on me forever leaving a pretty stain behind (it withstood a Thai curry dinner).
Judging from this beautiful comparison swatch I found online, Sultry Samba looks quite similar to Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet La Viva.
More importantly, my lips stay comfortable and flake free. Much better than some of those glossy sheer lipsticks, I say!

I think Revlon Super Lustrous Matte (or even their Matte Balm) might be as good as Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet, but how would I know for sure until I compare them, right?
Something like La Romanesque looks perfect for that comparison. Just saying.
