Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss (Fatal Apple, Fuchsia Finery, Pinkissimo)

Revlon Fatal Apple Super Lustrous Lipgloss ($7.99 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a warm red with no shimmer and subtle orange undertones. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, and the way it applied and sits on the lips makes it look more like a lip stain than a gloss. There is some minor settling into lip lines, but it’s not too noticeable from afar due to the general evenness of the color. While it looks bolder in the tube, applied, it is more muted from the translucency.  Fatal Apple wore for two and a half hours on me.  NARS Hollywoodlawn is more opaque, darker. Chanel Exces is slightly redder. See comparison swatches.

Chanel French Toffee (83) Aqualumiere Gloss ($27.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a warm, champagne-shimmered, golden beige.

Revlon Peach is slightly darker. MAC Sublime Shine is similar. MAC Satin Slip is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

I couldn’t think of too many shades that might compare with this one, and the closest was MAC Star Quality which is a bit lighter and not as pigmented. MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell is noticeably lighter.
