I Love These Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks!

My first lipstick was from Revlon. I’m sure of it! I was probably 16 or 17 and back then, it was this long wearing matte lipstick named Bronze, or something. It was the late 90’s and browns were IT for lips. Anyway, I’ve always thought Revlon made great lipsticks. I recently had a penchant for Revlon’s line of lipsticks called the Super Lustrous Lipsticks. Today, I want to show you the first 2 I bought. I then went back to got some more because I really liked them!

They come in a black plastic tube that I have no complaints of. Really. I can’t nit pick everything, and I thought these were decent. You get the shades labelled and they snap open and close tightly. I don’t have problems with the cap coming off (totally annoying if they did!) and finger prints are not very visible.





The 2 shades I have for you today are Rosewine and Pink Velvet. Rosewine is a brownish red and Pink Velvet is a brighter warm pink. Both have cream finishes, and while they look matte on my lips, they don’t dry my lips out. They last for a good 4 hours, leaving a stain and they last through a non greasy meal. I love the creamy texture, but these babies are very pigmented. Let me show you the swatch on my arm, made with only 2 passes.




Pretty cool huh? Since lipsticks are meant to be worn on the lips, here is how they are worn.

This line of lipstick has been around for a while already. I bought them at Watsons when there was discount. I think they cost me RM26.88 each. I have this urge to go back and get everything, so it’s good I’m on a ban. Haha! However, I did pick up 2 more a couple of months back and they are Sandalwood Beige which I used here and here,Β and Kiss Me Coral. Oh, I also have Blushing Nude which I talked about before. If you haven’t tried these, I suggest you go have a look. The shade selection is pretty good, so I’m sure you can find something you’ll like. Furthermore, the price is quite a steal πŸ™‚

Have you tried them? What is your favourite shade?

    Revlon is my fav brand when it comes to drugstore lipsticks! love their super lustrous range, matte range and newly launched lip balm stains!

    • Oh, I have 2 of their matte lipsticks and they’re really good. I find the balm stains drying on me. I prefer Clinique Chubby Stick Intense, as lip pens go.

  • I really love the way Pink Velvet looks on you! My first lipstick was also a brown from Revlon (raises the roof for 90’s earth tone awesomeness…!) called Coffee Bean. It’s TOTALLY the wrong color for me, it’s brown with a hint of shimmer that leans almost blue on me, but hey when you’re 16, you think you know everything, lol!

    • Thanks Kristen. LOL re: 16 yr olds. I was a really “docile” 16-yr-old but let everything out when I was at university. Late bloomer here. LOL!

  • Laura

    Pink velvet is definitely my kind of colour! I remember trying these out quite a while before, but didn’t get them for some reason (probably my inner conscience telling me to stop buying more lipsticks! lol)

    • Haha! I think they are a good buy when they’re on sale πŸ™‚

  • Connie

    I have this in Ravish Me Red. After like 2-3 hours it turns into lip ring (even without eating or drinking). Maybe I talk or move my lips too much, lol. The color just never fade evenly.

    • Sorry to heart that! I don’t have that problem. I like to apply a layer, blot then apply another layer. I find that it lasts longer

      • Connie

        ok will give this another try, your way. nice day.

        • I hope it works, Connie!

  • I haven’t tried lipstick from revlon.
    i like Rosewine this color very pretty
    guess this will become my 1st revlon lipstick
    Thanks for sharing =)

    • I hope you like it too! Let me know how it goes, ok?

  • Ooooh, I really hope they sell Pink Velvet here because I love it! I have to confess that the packaging slightly bored me, but I did some swatching and loved what I saw ^^. You look so lovely Lily! ^^

    • Thanks Teri. The packaging is nothing exciting, but I would imagine these lipsticks would be more expensive if they went crazy with the packaging. Lol!

  • Hanny Daforcena

    OH! I loved these since the start of my blogging days! ^.^ Glad to know that they’re still around, heh heh! I remember once Watsons sold these at half off and I went “cray cray” and got as many as my meager college girl budget allowed, heh heh~

    • I can imagine! Half off? I’d go nuts too. Lol!

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    LOVE Pink Velvet on you! I mean they both look fantastic on you, but than one is WOWZA!!
    I haven’t really gotten into drugstore lipsticks all that much-it’s so overwhelming for me plus I hate that there are usually no testers available. One day I’ll have to take an afternoon and actually REALLY try to look through them because these are GORGEOUS!

    • Thanks Tracy πŸ™‚ These are pretty good. Worth a try, for sure. If you manage to pick up something, let us know! I’d love to know how these work in drier weather…

  • I tried almost all manner of Revlon lippies but sadly they all left my lips sore and swollen. Not sure why though … Love the colour “Rosewine” on you though πŸ™‚

    • Oh no! My colleague told me that too! You’re probably allergic to some ingredient in their lipsticks. What brands can you use?

  • I actually feel that this formula is a little heavy for me, so I don’t usually look. I agree with Tracy – it is offputting because there usually aren’t testers for drugstore lipsticks, which can be annoying. How are we supposed to choose?

    • Oh, I hate it when there are no testers. I would imagine it’s only logical to have testers >.<

  • Liz

    Ah, brings back memories. My first Revlon lipsticks were Wine With Everything and Toast of New York, staple of the ’90s. πŸ™‚

    Rosewine looks lovely!

    • Rosewine brings back memories… only my first few lipsticks were more brown. The tone is there though πŸ˜›

  • Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    I can’t say I’m a big lipstick girl, but I have heard many raves about this line. I remember a few years ago perusing the section that sold them at CVS, not being able to choose between so many pretty shades. Both of these look so pretty on you πŸ™‚

    • I’m more of a lipstick girl – not so much a gloss girl but I have a feeling Dior is turning me into one. This line of lipstick is the one I go back to. You should try it!

  • liyeun

    Uuuuuuuu……….that rosewine look so fine on ya, hot mama!

    • Thanks Liyuen!
