Thanks to my makeup sis Christine for not allowing me to give up on Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. Revlon recently reintroduced Super Lustrous Lipstick with a shine finish for Summer 2013/Fall 2013 in a range of new shades.
This newly reformulated lipstick now has a shiny finish however, some of the shades didn’t appeal to me so I casually slipped past them more than once at the drugstore. My reader and friend Christine mentioned how incredible they were and how there was indeed a coral I’d probably love and how I should try them and well, needless to say, she was convincing.
Unfortunately the coral was sold out but I did pick up Terra Copper which also happens to be a very me shade.
Here are my thoughts!
She was right! Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick is a damn fine drugstore lipstick. I was able to get the shade for $4.49 at Harmons which honestly, for a lipstick with this formula and color pay off is a steal.
If you’re a seriously beauty budget shopper I’m sure you are more than pleased with these. As for some of us who are a little more wary of our drugstore purchases I do URGE you to try out the Super Lustrous Lipstick formula. It really is on par with what you can get from mid and higher range brands.
I think looking at the product was one reason I avoided it. As staring into the tube it seems like a standard cream lipstick and I’m not much for creams. But it’s actually a lighter formula with full color payoff and an excellent shiny finish!
The texture has a very light, slick feel on my lips. I wouldn’t say it is crazy moisturizing but through the wear my lips felt comfortably hydrated. Although you can’t see it in my images the lipstick has a highly shiny finish. Although it feels like a sheerer formula it actually applies fully pigmented on a single stroke and can be built to full coverage in two strokes. The lipstick has no flavor or fragrance so if you’re sensitive no worries here.
I can get about three hours of wear before the color fades a bit and needs reapplication.
I’m quite happy I gave Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick a second chance because these are incredible. This a nice glossy lipstick with a weightless finish on lips that provides excellent color. I surely hope they do some other shades in the future as currently I’m not particularly keen on the colors that are available. Outside of the limited color selection this formula is incredible and well worth exploring.
These are available now at drugstores.
