There is something about beautiful colours and a creamy feel that makes lipsticks every girl’s sweetheart.For a long time i never ventured towards Revlon. During college it was unattainably costly and then i got busy with Maybelline.
Here I’m going to review my latest find from Revlon[well the lipsticks are not latest – they were always there ]
Relvon Superlustrous lipstick : Shades Cocoa Sheer and Brick red [Creme]

The lipsticks are pigmented .They fade leaving a stain behind after eating or drinking.Cocoa sheer is brown pink however it looks different on lips. That’s the beauty of these lipsticks whatever the colour of your lips these lipsticks maintain their colour quite a bit.  On single swipe it coats the lips . Its creamy and full colour. Superlustrous comes in Creme , Frosty .The frosty finish doesn’t suit me so i don’t go there.
Brick red goes on like a brick ! Yeah if you see the colour after application its really is bright brick red. I  usually avoid orangey colours because i have typical wheatish dusky complexion but this colour is muted orange brown on my lips.
These lipsticks have no smell or flavour at all.

What i feel about Revlon Lipsticks:
  1. Superlustrous  could be more cost effective. Its a drugstore brand abroad so i don’t understand why its so costly here. Its Rs 480 per piece. These are very well formulated lipstick but i suggest buy them on offer. I got mine on B1G1.
    1. The shades are very phoren. There are few shades which just won’t suit Indian complexion- fair or dark. Barring 1or 2 shades, I suggest apply on lips before buying if you can work with testers. However there are lot of shades which are beautiful ,unique  and extremely wearable especially for office and day wear.Yup even the darker shades if you can pull it off and your workplace doesn’t mind.

@ eve-olution:I think among Drugstore brands , revlon lipsticks are quite ahead in terms of colour payoff and formulation

@nivedita: Same here. This is the first time i ventured towards Revlon lipsticks since i was quite happy with Maybelline.
