Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks

Hello Dolls!

Today's post will be about a mini drugstore haul!! I got some really great lip products and I can't wait to share with you guys. 

In all honesty, I used to be a makeup snob -meaning I would only and I mean ONLY buy higher end cosmetics(except for L'Oreal Voluminous mascara, of course) and since I was young I would save my allowance and splurge on high end stuff when I could. I had gotten the notion that drugstore makeup just wasn't any good. 

Fast forward a couple of years and NOW I am completely obsessed with drugstore makeup. I cannot leave the drugstore without having bought at least something  makeup related. I mean seriously, the quality is amazing and it is super affordable. How can you beat that?

 I don't love every single product, but REVLON and L'OREAL are my favorite brands for sure.

So, Revlon has come out with some new lip colors for the Super Lustrous Collection. I got the 4 lipsticks (6.69$) that I like the most and 2 of the Super Lustrous Lipglosses (6.99$). Bellow are some pictures and swatches. 

The colors in order are: Pink Cognito, Lovers Coral, Fuchsia Shock and Pink Cloud

Here are some swatches on paper. I tried to swatch my arm, but my tan is too dark and the colors wouldn't show up.
The lipglosses: Pango Peach, Super Natural

I love the application of the lipsticks and glosses. They are super shiny and the make your lips look really pillowy and plump. They are really moisturizing and just go on very smoothly on the lips. 

The lipsticks aren't as opaque as I thought they would be. I find that these new colors are similar to the 'cremesheen' lip colors in M.A.C. Cosmetics, meaning they are just more shiny and slightly more sheer than the other lip colors. Of course they are pigmented and the colour shows up, but there is a little bit of a sheen to them, so keep that in mind if you normally prefer a satin or matte finish - these are more glossy. 

  • The colour 'Pink Cloud' has a little bit of a frosted look to it. If that's not something you like I would stay away from that color. 
  • DUPE:  Revlon lip color in 'Lovers' Coral' is very similar to M.A.C. Cosmetics lipstick in 'Coral Bliss'
  • DUPE: Revlon lip color in 'Pink Cognito' is similar to M.A.C. Cosmetics lipstick in 'Hue'. 'Hue' being slightly lighter in color, but more pigmented. 

The lipglosses are quite pigmented and super shiny- BUT NOT STICKY! They go on very evenly and they are hydrating too. They don't have any scent and I like that once they wear off, my lips don't feel cracked or wax-like. 

I really am impressed with this collection and the colors I got. 

I can't wait to wear them all!!
