Take another look at the sentence:

Reva not only drank from the bottle of orange soda but also got hot pink lipstick on the rim.

When you use not only ... but also, you must have two equal grammatical items. After not only, notice that you have a simple past tense verb, drank. And after but also, you have a second simple past tense verb, got. The structure is thus parallel.

Go to the next sentence.
