Revlon Lustrous Lipstick

revlonSP one

I owe Revlon the biggest favour as it was this brand that introduced me to the world of makeup. I was browsing the counters with my friend and the woman offered to do my make up for me. Before then I had only ever worn foundation, mascara and a single brown neutral eyeshadow but nothing else. It felt so lovely to have my make up done! She applied the whole works on me - primer, foundation, concealer, bronzer, highlight, eyeliner, more than one colour eyeshadow and lipstick. She showed me in the mirror and it was like looking at a whole different person, an amazing person! A person who had their life put together and wasn't living a student life of two minute noodles. For the first time I felt amazing and it was all down to Revlon.

Unlike most girls I was not into Mac lipsticks (I am hearing you all gasp at this) I was obsessed with the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick line. Between every pay check I would swatch and admire all the colours on the stand (in New Zealand the Revlon stands are huge compared to here in the UK) trying to narrow down which colour I should choose next. The reason why I love this line so much is the creamy texture, the amazing pigmentation, the non-offensive smell (as they don't really smell like anything) and I loved the classic looking packaging.

I started off in the browns as it was winter at the time and brown looks nice with my complexion (so the lady at the counter told me). My absolute favourite was Smokey Rose (featured left) and Rich Raisin Frost (right). The Super Lustrous line have different finishes (which at the time I had no idea about and I giggle at my past self) and these two are a 'pearl' finish which means they have a slight 'shine' like appearance.

I love these two shades. The one on the left is popular Cherries in the Snow which is stunning! Like so stunning that every time I wear it I get people asking me what I am wearing. I really do think it's a show stopper. It's a creme finish so it's creamy with no shine yet it's not quite matte. The other one is soft silver rose which again is a pearl finish but looks amazing in the summer with a pink lipgloss over the top.

A few years ago I went through an orange phase and would non stop where these shades. The one on the left is Kiss Me Coral which is lovely with a tan and Siren (on the right) is a crazy bright orange which unfortunately I'm not too keen on anymore. Both are creme finishes so they knock a pouch when it comes to pigmentation yet they are not drying at all.

I feel like Relvon needs to have more love in the blogging community as it is a really nice brand either for someone who is just starting out with makeup or someone who have been into makeup for awhile as there is something for everyone.
