Revlon Blank Canvas Super Lustrous Lipstick arrives with the new Revlon Color Charge Spring 2018 Collection and I have thoughts of purchasing a back up. You see, I never contemplate backups anymore. There was a time in my makeup life where it felt like all items required a backup. I think we went through that phase when MAC launched a limited edition collection and we’d sit there like, “Oh my god! Imma need at least three jars of that green pigment because they’ll never make it again and I’ll be without green pigment forever and ever!”
Fast forward years and years later and you never even made it half way through one jar never mind the other two backups. As you get older you and reach some sort of makeup maturity level you realize your collection is either too vast for backups or you grow bored with the item anyway within a few months and you’re on to the next thing. So backups are really unnecessary but this Revlon Blank Canvas Super Lustrous Lipstick? It might warrant a backup!
Blank Canvas Super Lustrous Lipstick feels like something I already own from Revlon however, the shade doesn’t appear in the permanent collection. I’m unsure if it is available as a limited edition shade with the Color Charge Collection as it makes no mention of this on the label. It does come in special edition packaging which has the “Color Charge” logo stamped on the side of the barrel. I noticed that Revlon has trademarked the Color Charge name which makes me believe the collection might stick around.
The interesting thing about Blank Canvas is it releases in a collection that’s all about color. Color Charge has some bold shades and seems to be marketed as a colorful collection however, oddly enough there are some truly great nudes in this launch.
Blank Canvas being one of those nudes. This is a rather stunning pale beige pink in the tube which typically I’d be concerned wouldn’t work for me but it applies as a more light nude without pinky undertones and looks quite lovely. Definitely a gorgeous shade and even more gorgeous with a little clear gloss on top.
As for the Super Lustrous Lipstick formula it’s either a love or a hate for most people. I happen to love it. It’s light, creamy, slightly hydrating and wears for four to five hours on my drier lips for about four to five hours. I’ve always compared it to MAC Lustre Lipstick but with a thicker, creamy texture. It typically applies quite well on me with a smooth finish and a hint of a sheen. I detected no fragrance or flavor in the formula.
All in all, a very gorgeous shade that could be potentially over looked since the displays for the Color Charge Collection are bold, bright colors. I know I sort of gazed at it and passed it by only to come back for a second look at the lip products to discover some gems.
I’m going to stick a Muse Approved on Revlon Blank Canvas Super Lustrous Lipstick!
Loves this one.
I purchased mine at Walgreens but hopefully the collection pops up soon at more retailers.
