Revlon Blank Canvas Super Lustrous Lipstick Review & Swatches

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.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks are underrated! I love them, and the price is hard to beat. This is a great color on you and I’m hoping it will work for me. Also hoping it’s not sold out by the time I get out today to look for it!

    • Isabella Muse

      I do too. I have quite a few, they are actually better than maybelline sensational! Let me know if you find it! I loved it!

  • Eraser

    They are indeed underrated. Heck, I remember when you had to go to a nice department store to buy Revlon! Anyway, the recent Street Chic collection, now permanent, paired the shade “Bare Affair” with Seoul, so I had to buy it… ; ) Turns out it’s a lovely nude for us brunettes.

    You’re killing me Muse! I can’t find this display anywhere local yet! This is a beautiful shade! And beautiful on you. Did you happen to grab the Barely Pink lippie for a review as well?! *fingers crossed*

    • Isabella Muse

      I did! Review coming for that and thank you! ;-D Did you locate it yet?! hope you find it!

    I am currently on a quest to find the Color Charge stuff in stores around me. There’s a fine line – if I wait too long, it will be sold out since they only put a few items in the displays and if I go look now I’ll be checking out every Walgreens store within a 20 mile radius! And asking about it, and having the employees giving me the side-eye. Where I live, we seem to get stuff on about a 3-week delay from when you first post if, but some of this collection was at the Walgreens store downtown already this week. So my quest continues! I want to see this stuff in person NOW! I am most curious about the eye shadow singles and the lip color singles. Why do they do this release date thing to those of us who live in the flyover states??!?

    Very pretty!!!

    Don’t know if this is still the case, but when I lived in Australia many years ago, Revlon was sold in the department stores; would have it’s own counter. I could never bring myself to buy anything from the brand when I was there b/c it was insanely high priced.

    …of course I like it…it looks just like four or five MAC lipsticks I already have lol. And of course I will go to Walgreen’s and stare at it for a half hour determining if it’s ever so slightly different than any of those other lipsticks, so I can justify buying it!

    • Isabella Muse

      lol yeah story of my life. 500 brown eyeshadows! Me at the mall: NEW BROWN EYESHADOW I MUST HAS IT! lol ;-D

  • dia

    Revlon is still sold at upscale department stores in Europe alongside Armani and Chanel.

    I like the look of this guy. I do happen to like the Revlon SL lipsticks, too. Outside of drugstores the prices are even better (especially with Bed Bath & Beyond coupons).
