Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

Sometimes a deal is just too good to ignore, even if it is for something we don't really need! Not only did I come across a "buy one get one free" offer for Revlon lip and nail products, I got my staff discount of 25% off on top of that! Needless to say, I walked out with two lovely lipsticks in hand at 63% off each (you don't get better than this for products that aren't discontinued!) from Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick range. After a long time swatching and admiring the amazing 48 different shades on offer, I decided to get Peach Me and Blushing Nude.

L-R: Peach Me, Blushing Nude
Shiny black packaging, so simple yet elegant
Before settling on Peach Me and Blushing Nude, the other shades I was contemplating on were Demure, Soft Suede, Teak Rose, Apricot Fantasy and Blushing Mauve (okay that listing was unnecessary but oh well...) but they all looked very similar to each other, moreso than the two I chose. If only I could afford to buy all these gorgeous shades!


Described as a lipstick enriched with moisturisers Aloe and Vitamin E which has a formula that seals in rich, luscious stay-true colour- I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with Revlon's Super Lustrous lipsticks. MakeupAlley averages reviews of a rating 4.3/5 which is amazing and on Beautyheaven a full 5 stars!

On application these lipsticks glided on like a charm, even with dry lips, and is much more moisturising than Rimmel's Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick which I reviewed here. Staying power is good, about a couple of hours too with eating and drinking in between. But what impresses me the most is the huge selection of shades on offer which are all absolutely gorgeous and appear flattering on me (perhaps not including Va Va Violent, a very scary and intimidating dark purple).

Peach Me
Blushing Nude
Yes, these two shades do look quite similar in the bullet but I swear they aren't! At least I didn't get the Soft Suede shade which is nearly identical to Blushing Nude. Peach Me has a pearl finish while Blushing Nude boasts a beautiful creme finish- and the pearl lipsticks do not look frosty or glittery at all which is amazing! I absolutely love the formulation of the Super Lustrous lipsticks as it is creamy with beautiful colour payoff!

L-R: Peach Me, Blushing Nude
Now you can see the difference between these shades! Peach Me is just like its name- a peachy orange shade that surprisingly looks more pink on the lips; and Blushing Nude a modest rosy pink that I convince myself that it doesn't look anything like my 07 in Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick range... hehe.

I haven't really been a lipstick girl until quite recently, as I had never been able to find shades that flatter my skintone and lipsticks which have a lovely formulation- but the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick has changed this! Even after purchasing a Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter and reading many praises about it, I wasn't completely "wowed" with it. The Super Lustrous range just works and I think I might indulge in a few more shades...

Have you tried the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks? What shades do you have?

  5. I'm not a lipstick type of girl, but would love to experiment with more colors! And I love a great deal, I wonder if this sale applies to the USA?!?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No this sale wouldn't apply to the USA as it is only for the pharmacy I work at :) The USA's prices for cosmetics is already affordable! I think the cheap price I paid for these lipsticks here in Australia will still be more than what you would pay for in the USA.

  6. Revlon lipsticks are probably the best drugstore lipsticks, and I can never resist their deals, and the one you got was awesome!

  12. oh my gosh the colours look so gorgeous!! I've never tried any of the Revlon lipsticks before, only the lip butters. They have way too many colours to choose from so I'm always too lazy to go browse through and swatch them all. I'll have to go check out Blushing Nude, it looks so pretty :D

    1. They do have sooo many colours it is so hard! I had only tried the lip butters previously but for a better colour payoff, more shade choices and a lovely texture the Super Lustrous is great!

  16. A significant discount is always a good reason to indulgence in a bit of Revlon ;) Glad you're enjoying the Super Lustrous formula! I don't have that many of the lipsticks from that range specifically, though one of my favourites is Pink in the Afternoon :)

    1. I adore the Super Lustrous formula and I'm thinking of buying more but I have no clue what shades to get (and I want to make sure they aren't similar to the ones I already have!). I absolutely love discounts :)

  38. Blushing nude looks like one of those office-appropriate colors (even though the name looks kind of inaccurate to the color? lol)
    You got such a great deal on these! I love the formula of the Super Lustrous lipsticks as well. Plus they are dupes for a lot of higher-end lipsticks :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. It definitely looks like an office/work appropriate shade and I love it though, as it still gives a little bit of colour to the lips :) The formula is amazing! I haven't tried high end lipsticks before as they are way out of my budget but I would love to give them a go one day!

  42. Big fan of Revlon makeup. I've got a couple of their lipsticks currently in some deep plum and cherry shades which are very soft and moistursing. I do like the peach shade you've shown though.
