Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (Berry Couture, Fuchsia Shock, Lover’s Coral)

Revlon Berry Couture Super Lustrous Lipstick

Revlon Berry Couture Super Lustrous Lipstick ($7.99 for 0.13 oz.) is a cool-toned, fuchsia-berry with a soft shine. The color was buildable from sheer to semi-opaque–it looked a bit like a lip stain, because of how thin the formula is, as it looks a lot like my natural lip; not heavy-looking at all. This particular shade wore for three and a half hours on me, which is shy of average, but for something with as much slip as this does going on, it was good wear. Revlon Sorbet is warmer. MAC Lickable is slightly brighter. Dior Lucky is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Fuchsia Shock Super Lustrous Lipstick ($7.99 for 0.13 oz.) is a cool-toned fuchsia pink with iridescent fuchsia shimmer. It had sheer to semi-opaque color that was buildable and never felt heavy or thick on the lips. It lasted two and a half hours on me. MAC Midnight Mambo is brighter, cooler-toned. Revlon Lollipop is darker. Chanel Extatique is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Lover’s Coral Super Lustrous Lipstick ($7.99 for 0.13 oz.) is a softened, coral-red with warm undertones and a soft shine. This shade didn’t apply as evenly as the other two, but it had the same thin, your-lips-but-better finish that had a light sheen and sat well on the lips. It wore for two hours. NYX Haute Melon is more muted. Guerlain Nahema is more pigmented, shimmery. Chanel Coquette is lighter, more shimmery. Make Up For Ever Folk is similar. See comparison swatches.

It has a “Shine” finish, which delivers “lightweight color and moisturizing shine” with “buildable color payoff.” The formula is supposed to be moisturizing with a shiny finish. I didn’t detect any scent in any of the ones I bought at all, though I certainly stuck my nose close enough to get pink on the tip of it!  These three all felt moderately hydrating on me, but the hydration only lasts as long as they do, so it’s not as hydrating as a separate lip balm.

I love lipstick and gloss together, because it’s always interesting to see how you can alter the underlying lipstick. I will also mix for brow shades often – like a slightly darker or super shimmery shade mixed with something more matte.

5 Shimmering Shades of White

Pure, snow white–in a variety of finishes, plus a highlighter that looks almost white in the pan but is a little warmer and golden than that. I wanted to include a white polish, but there weren’t many permanent ones to choose from (that I’ve covered and were good) — what white polishes have you found to work best? You can check out comparison swatches of my picks, too 🙂

  1. Inglot #453 — bright, metallic white (and not too cool-toned)
  2. Sugarpill Tako — matte white
  3. Maybelline Too Cool — creamy, cool-toned white
  4. NARS Albatross — a dusting of shimmer and sheen
  5. NARS Santa Monica Blvd. — bright white for your lash line

5 Sparkling Blue Hues

I tried to pull a good variety in blues, from cobalt, purplish blues to sky blues to your bold, bright blues–and not just eyeshadows! I had to pick an eyeliner, because it’s a great way to add a bold pop of color without going full-on blue. If you want to see my picks together, the comparisons.

  1. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a pop of cobalt blue for the lash line
  2. OCC Pond — Tardis blue for your nails
  3. Le Metier de Beaute Lapis — a beautiful, medium-dark blue with shimmer
  4. Color Club Over the Moon — a shimmering, holographic blue
  5. Inglot #426 — a brightened, medium blue
