The Revlon Superlustrous Lipsticks

I'm always one to try out drugstore lipstick formulas as although I do love my higher end lipsticks, I personally think if you can get the same quality, you may as well save on the price. 

These three stunning lipsticks are the Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick* and are part of Revlon's Lip Wardrobe collection which are all about bold iconic colours. As much as I'm someone who does love my matte lipsticks, as you can imagine by the name of the product, these are much more moisturising and creamy. Although usually with this means that colour pigmentation isn't as good, however the product reminds me a lot of the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks like Glastonberry. Although they aren't pure solid opaqueness, with a lip liner underneath you get the same opaque-effect but with it being much more comfortable. 

I have three of the shades:

Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick 'Bare Affair'* - A light peachy nude lipstick. Currently peach lipsticks look awful on my skintone and wash me out, so I'm going to give this more of a test out in the Summer time when I hopefully have more of a tan. 

Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick 'Naughty Plum'* Is your typical vampy taupe dark cherry lipstick. I personally don't think my swatches did this any justice as the product is a bit more of a bolder lipstick and there is more of a berry undertone than taupe which is showing up on my swatch. 

Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick Black Cherry* - Another one that I don't think I've done justice with my swatch, for some reason it's come out very pink and bright on camera, whereas this is actually a little bit more of a toned down vampy red.  Any clue as to why my swatches are so bizarre, may re-shoot)

I absolutely love the packaging on these, they remind me of Chanel lipsticks with black and gold finishing and although aren't weighty, damn are they pretty to photograph. I think these are great for anyone who is looking for a bold lip but ultimately hates mattes (dry skin gals I feel you).  Let me know in the comments below if you've tried any of the Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick!

  2. These lipsticks look dreamy!!xx

  3. I've had Black Cherry in my collection for years, but it's the only one I've tried from the range. I love it though - most of my vampy lipsticks are matte, so Black Cherry makes a nice change when I feel like something with a bit of sheen.
