Revlon Legacy Collection Super Lustrous Lipsticks

For spring, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.13 oz.) sees the limited edition return of five iconic shades from the past as voted by Revlon customers. I found mine last week at CVS, and the display looked like it had just been put out, so hopefully if these interest you, you’ll find them locally! The Super Lustrous formula is supposed to be hydrating, smooth, and creamy. I found all five shades to be lightly hydrating with pretty good pigmentation and about average wear. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

5 Very Berry Lipglosses

Finding a rich, deep pink or berry lipgloss that doesn’t settle into lip lines or look like a splotchy mess is harder than you’d think, but here are five of my top picks that won’t give you such a hard time! What are your favorite deep pink and berry lip glosses?

  1. Revlon Adorned — a bold, fuchsia-red
  2. Giorgio Armani #523 — a vivid, pink-red with cool undertones
  3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Studded Kiss — a shimmering, muted berry
  4. Illamasqua Belladonna — a muted, fuchsia pink
  5. NARS Mexican Rose — a soft, raspberry pink

Revlon Demure, Flirtatious, & Ingenue Colorburst Lacquer Balms

I have three more shades of Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm ($8.99 for 0.095 oz.) to share with you! (Then I’m all out, but I’m hoping to pick up the remaining shades when there’s a good sale!) You can see other shades I’ve reviewed here. To recap, the formula has a balm-like consistency–lightweight, slightly slick–and usually applies fairly easily. The color payoff varies from semi-sheer to mostly opaque, and it seems like lighter shades are sheerer, whereas the darker shades (reds, fuchsias, etc.) are more opaque. Oddly enough, the deeper shades also seem to be more hydrating (and unsurprisingly, longer-wearing). These have a mint-scent and slight mint flavor.
