I love wearing lipstick and to be honest I think I am addicted to them! Now, I had been looking for super dark, vampy, purply colour - a bit like a black cherry - for a very long time. I had checked every brand but had never quite found the right colour until Revlon! The colour I purchased was ''black cherry 477'' and black cherry it was. It was just how I pictured and looked absolutely fabulous. It was a beautiful deep colour that really stood and was an excellent addition to my attire. It was easy to apply but with any lipstick it does need cleaning up around the edges with a cotton bud or something similar. The lipstick was full of moisture and did not feel like it was drying my lips out. I wore it for about 6 hours and the colour remained throughout the whole night, even when eating - although I did top it up afterwards just out of habit.
First off, I should probably say that I am a bit of a makeup junkie, with a ridiculously large selection, with lipsticks being the area where I buy most often. On my last count I had over 50 lipsticks but have since narrowed down my collection to probably around 30 now (still far too many). As a lipstick fan, I know what sort of formulas and textures I like and these Revlon lipsticks are the epitome of that.
These lipsticks have excellent pigmentation, are creamy and moisturising on the lips and contain SPF 15. In addition, they have a huge range of colors, especially for a drugstore brand. I like the packaging because the top is flat so you can store it upside down with the label pointing upwards and the colour of lipstick on the bottom. This probably sounds like a silly thing to get excited over, but I have owned other lipsticks from other brands, which do not have a colour guide on the bottom or cannot be stored upside down and so you can't tell which colour is which. For a drugstore lipstick I find the packaging to look more expensive than it really is. It usually costs between £7 and £8, which although expensive compared to other lipsticks I have bought, is worth is due to the high quality. If you are a MAC lipstick fan, there are lots of shades which match MAC lipsticks and they are about half the price, even less if on offer and I actually prefer the formula to some of the MAC lipsticks which I find drying on the lips.
All in all, these are my favourite lipsticks out of my collection and the ones I probably wear the most. I definitely recommend these to any lipstick lovers out there.
I love lipsticks - it is a fact that has been well documented here on Dooyoo judging by my reviews! I am always on the look-out for new formulas and unique shades. Revlon have really impressed me with their latest make up releases but I wanted to see if their staple products were up to scratch. Therefore I decided to try out this lipstick. I purchased the shade "Fire & Ice" which not only reminds me of Game of Thrones but is also meant to be a universally flattering red suitable for all skin tones. It is a cult shade loved by make-up artists due to its versatility and intense colour.
This is a real true red and it looks rather scary in the bullet! The packaging is very classic coming in a black and gold casing. The lipstick applies very smoothly and is not chalky or cakey despite the intense colour pigment. In fact the lipstick is super moisturising and feels really lovely on the lips. The formula contains vitamin E and avocado oil which accounts for the lipsticks moisturising characteristics. As an added bonus it also has spf 15!
Furthermore, once applied this lipstick does not budge - it has incredibly staying power - it literally lasts all day on me. Even when taking this lipstick off in the evening you will need a healthy dose of make-up remover. I like to wear this lipstick as more of a stain when I want a more relaxed look and often apply a bit, smudge it into my lips and then apply some lip balm to tone it down. However, when I want a full on red lip that will last all night and not clash with my other make up or outfit this is my go to lipstick. This lipstick is a classic lipstick from the packaging to the colour and finish - it is just effortless in every sense of the word.
This lipstick is available from Boots (or Superdrug) and retails for around £7.49. I will definitely be checking out other shades in the range and when my current lipstick runs out I will repurchase the very same colour as I love it so much!
Lipsticks are something I mostly purchase as an impulse buy and I'm always on the lookout for my perfect lippy. I needed some new foundation and concealer when I found Revlon make-up on a three for two offer in my local Tesco store and for my free item I decided to buy one of these lipsticks. I have a couple of Revlon Lip Butter's which I really like so I thought I'd give these a try too.
I was really impressed by the amount of shades this Superlustrous lipstick is available in and I must admit it took me a fair while to decide on one! There are twenty seven different shades ranging from vibrant pinks, reds and oranges, soft and neutral fleshy tones of beige and pink, browns and deep purples and reds. There really is something to suit anyone for any occasion here. I eventually settled for 'Soft Silver Rose' which is quite a soft shade of pink with an added shimmer and pearl effect making it perfect for nights out without being quite as bold as the usual bright reds I opt for in such occasions.
The lipstick is fairly easy to get hold of and is pretty much sold in any store with a Revlon counter such as Boots, Superdrug and larger supermarkets. For the 4.2g of lipstick you can expect to pay around £7.50 which, whilst more expensive than a lot of high street branded lipstick, is a fair price if it's a decent lipstick in my opinion.
The lipstick is housed in the usual cylinder plastic casing, this one being black in colour with a golden band around the centre with 'Revlon' printed in big, obvious black print through it. At the base of the lipstick is a sticker stating the shade and name of the lippy whilst the top of the tube is transparent plastic allowing you to see into it to get an exact idea of the colour contained. Removing the lid reveals more gold housing whilst the bottom twists to reveal more or less of the lipstick.
The top of the actual lipstick is cut in the usual slant with a soft sloped tear drop shape making it easier to apply to the lips without getting it everywhere. I find it transfers to the lips with relative ease. You need to apply a couple of coats to get the full colour but it applies smoothly and easily and leaves the lips feeling quite soft, it isn't sticky or uneven looking at all and generally feels and looks really nice upon application.
Soft Silver Rose is a really pretty and elegant shade of pink. It's quite a rosy pink shade and if it were a matte colour I would say is very much an everyday shade of lipstick. It isn't matte, however, instead it's quite pearly and has a slight shimmer to it, when the light hits the lips right it almost glistens which looks very nice indeed. This type or shade was something different for me but I very much enjoy it. I find it's quite an easy shade to wear and whilst I do think you can just about get away with it in everyday situations I think it's perfect for evening wear and would be great for those who can't pull off the brighter, bolder shades of lipsticks but still want something more 'dressy'.
The longevity of the lipstick is adequate. I find it can survive a few drinks and cigarettes, even the occasional licking of the lips but if you were to wear this on a night out you'd still need to reapply midway through the night. In my experience the lipstick stays looking freshly applied for around three hours from that point on it starts to fade slightly and after about five hours I'm ready for reapplying it. Whilst I've used a couple of lipsticks which have lasted longer and better, I've used a whole lot more which have been much worse than this offering from Revlon. Although I do feel the need to reapply during the night I only feel the need to do so once, it's not one of those lipsticks which needs to be topped up hourly so I don't have any real complaints there.
All in all, I really like this lipstick and think I shall be purchasing a few different shades in the future too. It applies nicely and evenly, comes in a wide variety of shades and lasts a decent amount of time. I think the price of the lipstick reflects the quality accurately in that there are more expensive/better products out there but there are plenty of cheaper/worse ones too. If looking for a lipstick within this sort of price range I don't think you can go wrong with this one and I wouldn't hesitate to pay the asking price again for another shade.
I purchased this lipstick actually in palette form as I was looking for a certain colour combination to do make up for a special occasion and so came across this lipstick. The eye palette is called Crimson Crush and came with two super lustrous lipstick colours and two Illuminance Creme shadows.
Revlon super lustrous lipstick is described as a rich-colour true lip colour that softens and continually moisturises the lips. The two colours that I have are pink velvet and blush chrome. They are unlike any other lipstick I have tried and as soon as I got them became some of my favourite ways to colour my lips. I save these for special occasions as I don't usually wear much lipstick, just lip glosses and find that although this gives a really nice look its way too heavy for day time wear.
That saying, they are very nice lipsticks though. Pink velvet is quite a dark pink and very flat, you just get the pink colour and that is it although that's nice if that is the look you are trying to achieve.
The blush chrome is a gorgeous colour and my favourite. This has quite a bit of depth to it. It's a quite dark dusty pink and has a metallic shimmer finish to it which is really nice and quite a different look in my opinion.
Both are very thick and a little definitely goes a long way. Obviously being in a palette I have to apply these with a lip brush. The lipstick goes on well as it has quite a creamy consistency to it although it is not greasy in any way and I find the lipstick lasts well too. The colour stays on well and I hardly need to reapply which is nice.
A nice special occasion lipstick.
Like many women I am always on the hunt or my perfect lipstick. I never seem to be truly happy with the colour, the formula or the longevity so I will often treat myself to a new product to see if I can find the illusive, perfect product.
When I was last in Boots I was having a look at their make-up range as I had plenty of points on my Advantage Card and I had decided to use them on a new lipstick. Revlon is not a brand I tend to buy makeup from frequently but I was not very happy with the colours I could find in the other ranges so I gravitated towards the Revlon stand eventually. I do use Revlon nail Varnish and have always liked those so I decided the make-up would probably be an acceptable quality too.
I tend to us a long-life lip stain product when I am at work but I was looking or a more gentle product for everyday use instead. I do find the stains a bit drying so I was after a more moisturising lipstick instead.
Revlon seemed to do several different lipsticks but I was drawn to the Super Lustrous Lipstick as it said that it had silk and vitamins for a smooth, conditioning colour. This sounded exactly what I was looking for so I had a closer look at the colour range. There seemed to be lots of colours in the range going from subltle, barely-there hints to some really bright colours. I wanted a natural everyday shade so I opted for Blush which is a pinky brown colour.
The lipstick was selling in Boots at about £7.50 which is about what I am willing to pay for a general lipstick and I chose to pay with my points which meant it was a freebie that time.
The packaging is not very exciting. It is a standard lipstick tube and it is black with a gold coloured band with the name Revlon around it. Unusually the top of the tube is clear so you can see the colour of the lipstick. This is nice until the first time I shove the top back on without remembering to wind the lipstick down and it will have an ugly splodge on the window. The tube also feels a little bit shorter than the No7 lipsticks that I have been using lately although at 5g I think there is actually more product in this smaller tube.
On opening the lipstick the body is gold coloured and it looks nice. The traditional twist-up mechanism feels very smooth and solid and it felt good quality. I have used some lipsticks in the past and the twist action feels very flimsy and you just know that it will break before you have used even half of the lipstick. I had no worries about this Revlon one.
I was pleased to find that the lipstick does not have a strong aroma; in fact it barely has any smell at all. I have a real dislike of strongly perfumed cosmetics, they always seem old fashioned to me and I dislike being aware of the fragrance when they are on my face.
Having wound up a small amount of product I applied it to my lips. During the day I don't bother with a lip brush and just apply my lipsticks straight from the tube. This one glided on to my lips really smoothly and left a subtle hint of colour with a nice sheen. There was a pearlescent finish but it was very light and didn't look ridiculously sparkly which is another problem I have suffered when buying the wrong colour for the day. I don't mind sparkles for the evening but as a woman in her forties I do think a light shine is much more flattering in the day.
The lipstick didn't feel at all heavy or greasy when I applied it. In fact it felt very much like I had just used a lip balm instead. There was no stickiness so no problem of hair sticking to your lips with the first gust of wind either.
The pointed shape of the lipstick allowed for an accurate application and an even coverage and I was immediately pleased with how it both looked and felt.
The lipstick also had no noticeable flavour. I find that if products are sweet I tend to keep licking them which doesn't do my lips any good and also means that the product juts keeps wearing off very quickly.
The manufacturers do not make any claims for the longevity of colour with this product and in fact they do suggest wearing it over lips that have been completely filled in with a Colourstay pencil to maximise the life of the shade. They do however claim that the colour with wear off evenly.
I do blot my lips after applying lipstick and I found that there was a small amount of transfer to other surfaces such as glasses when I used them. I also found that the product seemed to disappear very quickly when I was eating.
I found that if I put the lipstick on and was then just pottering about without eating or drinking it would still be visible after a couple of hours but would then need reapplying. It also needed to be reapplied after eating and drinking if I wanted to maintain a fresh look on my lips.
Even though the colour wore away quite quickly I didn't ted to get that dreadful look where the outside of the lips are still coloured and you have a bare patch in the middle, the fading was pretty even.
Since I had selected a fairly natural colour it was quick and easy to apply another coat whenever I needed to so that I could top up the colour and I never ended up with my lips feeling caked in product.
Although Revlon say that this product is moisturising I was a bit sceptical as I often find any lipstick with a pearl finish seems to have a drying effect on my lips. I must say that this is probably the first one that really never makes my lips feel dry at all. I am happy to keep using it throughout the day because if I wasn't applying this I would have been applying a lip salve instead. If anything I would have to say that my lips are feeling in better condition now that I am using the Lustrous Lipstick more often.
Overall I would say that I could recommend the lipstick to anyone who want a moisturising colour and who is happy to reapply frequently throughout the day. It is a shame it is not more long-lasting but if it was then it would probably be more drying too. I am happy with the shade and the coverage but I am still on a quest to find the perfect product as this still isn't it.
I've been on a quest lately to find the perfect lipstick for my make-up bag, I was on the lookout for either a nude colour or subtle pink, something that would go with pretty much anything. I usually wear lip-gloss but lipstick seems to have come back in fashion lately so I really wanted to get my hands on one.
I must have spent about half an hour in boots just browsing at all the different make-up brand's lipsticks and it seemed that there was very little choice of subtle colours, all bright pinks and reds which is a shame because I expected the high street brands to have followed in the higher end brands paths of nude lipsticks and I really didn't want to spend the ridiculous prices of the lipsticks by the likes of MAC etc.
As I say, the choice of nude/subtle lipsticks on offer at boots were very limited, however Revlon seemed to have the best range and after some deliberation I settled on their 'super-lustrous lipstick' in the colour 'Pearl 025 Sky line pink'.
Packaging - I love the look of this lipstick, its black with a gold band around the middle with the 'Revlon' name on it. The top of the cap is clear so you can easily see the colour you are purchasing instead of relying on the colour sticker at the bottom.
Colour - Revlon have a wide range of colours in the super lustrous range, including, oranges, pinks and purples but as I say there is little choice of nude/subtle colours. The 'sky line pink' colour was disappointing to me. Looking through the cap, the lipstick looks like a nice subtle nude/pink colour and pretty matte, however once it is applied to the lips it appears as a very pearly pink so be careful if you are wanting the matte look.
Quality - Again, I was disappointed. I regard Revlon to be one of the better high street make-up brands, but the lipstick is not long wearing at all, in fact the lipstick pretty much vanished after about 10 minutes so would take a lot of re-applying to keep the look up. On application the lipstick feels lovely on the lips, really soft and goes on smoothly, however I suffer with rather dry lips despite always applying lip balm and this lipstick really gathers in the dry skin, not a good look!
Price - Revlon's super-lustrous lipsticks are £7.49 at boots, personally I think this is quite expensive for a lipstick that disappears after 10 minutes. I will not be buying these again.
I picked up these lipsticks quite some time ago after reading a couple of reviews on different blogs. I am normally pretty afraid of wearing such bright colours for fear of looking like a clown! I just really wanted to try out some different looks, and wanted some classic shades.
These lipsticks normally retail at £7.49, but they are currently on a 2 for £10 offer at Boots, so now would be a good time to invest! They are a little more expensive than what I would normally pay for a lipstick, but Revlon is a trusted brand known for making quality products so I think the price point is reasonable.
I'll try to describe the shades the best I can, but there are definitely swatches around on some blogs if you wanted to google them. I expected 'Cherries in the Snow' to be a true red sort of a shade, but it is actually very pinky. It looks like a lovely fuchsia when applied directly from the bullet, but you can also achieve quite a sheer effect which looks nice with some gloss over the top. I would say this is a very fresh shade, and really brightens up your look. 'Revlon Red' is a very intense deep blue-red. It's a classic colour, and is great for making your teeth appear whiter.
The formula of both lipsticks is extremely creamy and gorgeous. I have found that if you blot after you have applied them, they last for a decently long time. I really like the feel of them, and they don't dry out your lips at all.
The packaging is pretty simplistic, which is fine by me.
Ultimately, I would definitely recommend these lipsticks, especially 'Cherries in the Snow'.
I love lipsticks although I rarely use them. But I do have quite a selection.
I bought this one, because I needed something to go well with my new dress (naturally). I bought the Bronze Beauty colour. It is as the name suggest a bronze coloured lipstick, somewhat light orange brown colour with just a bit of shine.
*The lipstick is easy to apply, it spreads evenly in a very thin layer and blends with your natural lip colour just a bit so it does look natural (as far as bronze lipstick can). After applying the lips are soft to the touch and do not feel dry.
*The lipstick tends to stay on your lips rather than smearing everything your lips touch, it will leave marks in the beginning (if you by accident rub it on your dress, or test it on your hand) but later it won't. It also won't smear your teeth (yes, had that experience also)
*The lipstick really is durable, I rarely needed to correct it when I had it on.
All sounds good doesn't it? But this little one has one flaw. It smells horrible! I do not know how I could miss that when I was buying it but it really does. I thought it has gone bad but later got to know that that is just it's scent. Gladly enough the scent only sticks around when you apply the lipstick and a few minutes more, later on you (and others) won't smell it.
If you do not mind the stench this one is certainly worth considering.
I love Revlon products and after seeing Amanda Seyfried in a magazine wearing this and looking lovely, I rushed out and got some for myself.
The price is great at £7.49 from Boots - i wouldn't clas this as cheap but it's definetly a reasonable price for a lipstick of such quality.
The lippy is available in various colours (all priced the same),
a pale browny cream colour
Fire & Ice
Neon pink verging on red
Rose petal coloured, light red/dark pink
Pink in The Afternoon
Dark pink with a neon twist
Va Va Violet
Violetty purple colour
Gentlemen Prefer Pink
362 Cinnamon Bronze
Lovely shade of neutral pink
103 Caramel Glace
Light purpley grey
383 Rich Raisin Fros
Dark purply pink
Dark browny purple
I got the Fire And Ice colour which is a pinky red and makes my lips look gorgeously plump and kissable haha. It does look pretty natural when applied in a small amount with a tiny bit of vaseline ontop. It could definetly pass for my natural colour to strangers. The fact you can put layer upon layer and it still look great and not lumpy is amazing. It has such a smooth, refreshing feel to it. It lasts well and hydrates the lips, as a lipgloss would.
The lipstick lasts well and only needs reapplying after eating/drinking. It sits on the lips rather than absorbing into the lips but still looks lovely.
The packaging of the lipstick is elegant and expensive looking, and good quality. It comes in a gold lipstick casing with the Revlon logo in black writing.
I love the product and would reccomend it. It acts as a lip conditioner and softens them considerably aswell as looking classy yet discreet.
For what seems like forever I have been searching for the perfect lip colour. I found it once in a No7 set but sadly it was not available to buy as a single item so Ive spent many months searching to replicate that colour - which my friends describe as 'Sally's Barbie Pink' and somehow nothing seems to match no matter the brand or the price tag but lately Ive been tyring even more out and I think I may have found the closest one yet, in the 'Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick' range. Ive never really used many Revlon products until recently when there was a massive sale on anything and everything Revlon at one of the markets in B'ham and since then Ive never looked back. This is one product Ive started buying in bulk and started trying out different shades from the range - so you know it must be pretty damn good!
Price: 7.29 [Price based on Boots website]
Stockists: Boots, Superdrug & Amazon
Shades: Mink, Cappuccino, Black Cherry, Blushed, Caramel Glace, Cinnamon Bronze, Gentlemen Prefer Pink, Va Va Violet, Copper Frost, Pink In The Afternoon, Amethyst Shell, Soft Silver Rose, Fire & Ice + Naturally Nude. LOADS to choose from Im sure you'll agree!
I personally own the shade 'Gentlemen Prefer Pink' which I would describe as a candy pink shade - very light and proper girly!
The packaging for this lipstick is exactly as is shown in the image with this review being black and gold in colour with the Revlon brand name around the bottom. Not the most attractive or eye-catching packaging in the world I admit but I think its quite stylish and modern all the same. The top is very secure and doesnt fall off if the lipstick is just loose in your bag so it is almost impossible to break this lipstick or for it to dyr out as long as you put the top back on.
The lipstick itself has an angled edge which makes it much easier to apply and doesnt look drying like most do it actually looks like it is really moisturising. You cant really see that on the image above this but look on the Boots website if you want to see because that is exactly what it looks like in reality. This is very easy to apply and the angled edge makes it much easier to create the perfect cupids bow and not get it all round your mouth. This is a lipstick so I do recommend gently exfoliating your lips first as it can show up any chapped or dry bits - particularly with the lighter shades.
This feels and looks lovely on in my opinion. The colour I chose I think was the best choice for my skintone as it does suit me more than say a darker pink would and it feels really creamy and natural on. Most lipsticks dry out my lips and make them appear chapped or dry even when they arent and this one doesnt at all it feels really nourishing and natural enough so wear in the day as well as the night. This also lasts for around 4 hours before I need to re-apply which might not sound like very long but I reckon that is about average.
I highly recommend this lippy as it has a wide range of shades, feels and looks great on and wont dry out your lips at all. Go and treat yourself! Its not quite my perfect colour but it is pretty damn close!
Thanks For Reading.

After having some success with a few of Revlon products I purchased the super lustrous lipstick which is a rich moisturising lipstick. Revlon claim that it includes "exclusive LiquiSilk technology "and "moisturizers and vitamins." Finally wearing lipstick didn't seem like such a bad deed. It seemed by buying this lipstick I was doing my lips a favour as it sounded like it was packed full of vitamin goodness.
The price of the lipstick is comfortable for the bank balance at £7.29. Definitely not expensive for a lipstick. However, it could be argued it's not cheap either, especially for a product that isn't packed full of expensive ingredients and technologies such as Dior and Chanels lip colour ranges.
What struck me about this lipstick was the coverage. I have very dark lips so it can be murderous finding a lipstick that will cover the colour of my own lip colour as well as giving me a fantastic lip colour. This lipstick completely blocks out my own lip colour and feels really soft on my lips. I can see what Revlon means when it says it's full of moisturizers and vitamins; it feels like it's a lip balm on the lips. Not make-up.
The colour I purchased is "Pink in the afternoon" which is a fairly medium pink shade. It's not baby pink but it's not a neon pink colour. It sits comfortably in the middle. The lipstick looks really natural when I apply a dab of Vaseline on the top. In fact it could possibly pass as my 'own lip colour' which would be a very nice lip colour to have; it's a shame this isn't my natural lip colour.
The colour is buildable. First coat- natural. Second coat makes your lips look a lot brighter... in fact the colour completely changes it is a much brighter pink than initially. Don't let this put you off if you want to purchase a more 'natural pink lipstick' as the first coat looks very natural and just because the colour can look less natural after a few more slicks of coat it doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it because you might want to have a brighter lip colour for a certain occasion. Two coats would look really nice in the summer as it has a very summery pink glow to it.
My favourite aspect of this lipstick no doubt about it is the fact it's so hydrating and looks more like a gloss than a lipstick.
The packaging of the lipstick is elegant. It comes in a gold lipstick casing with the Revlon logo in black writing. The bottom of the case is black which really compliments the gold. The lipstick looks very expensive. It doesn't look like you've spent £7. When you apply the lipstick in public people may be fooled to believe it's a designer lipstick when your hand is covering the Revlon logo as it looks so elegant for a Revlon product.
Overall, I really like the lipstick. It conditions my lips and leaves them feeling really soft. The packaging is impressive and the coverage. I definitely would purchase this lipstick again.
