in lipgloss, Revlon

I am on a lip gloss hoarding phase right now. I think once i am done with all of them, i shall make a matrix with comparisons and prices and specifications and sorts of complicated things which the inner geek in me with love (I love excel sheets :p) . That should be helpful to you guys as well right? Anyway, up for inspection today is the Revlon SuperLustrous Lip gloss in Shine City..

Revlon Claims “Colour Exclusive LiquiSilk formula with silk enriched moisturizers and vitamins for intense moisture and an ultra smooth feel. Light reflecting spheres create the ultimate shine Sheer, buildable coverage, doesnt drag on …”

Shine city is a semi sheer,   warm ,  earthy peach   with really subtle gold micro glitters in it which are mostly unoticeable on application. On your lips it looks just like a high shine subtle pink .It is non sticky, very light on the lips, and does not dry them out either.

Overall this is what i loved about it:

  • The texture is perfect- light and comfortable to wear in the hot summer months
  • Its non sticky and non gloopy and super smooth to apply
  • It has mega shine, definitely one of the shiniest lip glosses around …this is something i absolutely love
  • They have some really really flattering colors in these.
  • It is moisturizing, whatever those vitamins are supposed to be doing…they definitely do that!
  • SPF 15- any spf is always a bonus right?
Overall this is what is not so great about it
  • If you like your glosses to be super pigmented, then these might dissapoint you because they are just a wash of color on your lips and work best when layered. I dont think you can really blame them for that,  considering revlon says it in the product description itself that it is supposed to be semi sheer. Ultimately it does what it claims to do!
  • It doesn’t last too long

On top of a lipstick

 Overall Verdict : 4/5 or A-

Would i Repurchase: Yes

Price: Rs 440/-
Recommendation: Revlon Lip glosses are semi sheer with a tint of color towards them. They work really well on top of a lipstick, and if worn on their own just provide a light wash of color to your lips .They are definitely mega shiney, the micro glitters in them are super flattering and non gritty, and these are non sticky and comfortable  to wear with moisturizing qualities. They dont last too long, and if you like super pigmented lip glosses then you may not love these. Shine City is a sheer earthy deep peach that is flattering for all skintones.
