Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (Rose Velvet, Ginger Rose,Fleshtone)

Lately I need to buy lipsticks that are easier to apply, something that I can swipe in 2 seconds without looking at the mirror (Oh yeah, I'm very good at this). And when I dropped by at Dan+Dan makeup store, I decided to buy some nudes from Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick series. But since I couldn't decide which one, so I bought four of them. Three were from Super Lustrous series, and another one was from Revlon Matte Lipstick. I'm not sure whether that matte lipstick comes in the same series as this one, so I wrote a separate review about it. Read it here.



Their packaging remains almost the same from when the first time I bought this, if I'm not mistaken. It's a classic type lipstick black tube with a golden strip and Revlon symbol on it. The only thing that change is probably the top of the cap which is now comes in a transparent plastic. It used to be all covered in black I suppose.








Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick comes in several different unique formula: pearl, matte, sheer, and creme are the ones I recognize. The creme one is my favorite since the rest of them are quite tricky to apply and a bit drying on me. They come in 82 different shades in all different formula. But since it's impossible for me to buy all of them, I only bought three: Fleshtone, Ginger Rose, and Rose Velvet.

ROSE VELVET







Rose Velvet is a cool combination between rosy pink and brown, but the brown seems more dominant than the pink.

GINGER ROSE








Ginger Rose is like the lighter version of Rose Velvet, they're like sisters. But this one has greater amount of pink than the brown itself.




***



FLESHTONE






Fleshtone is a warm neutral brown. There's also a light touch of peach in it. This one is the least to my favorite since this is too brown for me, but most Indonesian girls would probably love this color since this works on the largest spectrum of skin tone among these three.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick has a smooth and creamy formula. It doesn't dry my lips, and comes with amazing pigmentation. And because of their creaminess, they're not transfer resistant, so beware with your teeth. Btw, I'm talking about the ones with creme formula. I used to try some mattes, pearls, and sheers from these series, and I found them all disappointing in terms of formula, but the shades are all equally beautiful.

This lipsticks stays on my lips for several hours and still need reapplication after eating. I don't feel any discomfort wearing this, no sticky feeling, and no weird smell. Until the end of the day, I don't find any flakes at the inside of my lips, which means this doesn't dry at all.

I would highly reccomend these lipsticks for those of you newbies to lipsticks, they are opaque and smooth in just one swipe. I bought these in Dan+Dan makeup store for IDR 35K each. It's worth every penny. Btw, what's your super lustrous favorite?
