Revlon Super Lustrous Color & Shine Lipstick

Plum Velour // Berry Couture // Fuchsia Shock // Lovers Coral // Honey Bare // Terra Copper

Earlier, I posted about the new Revlon display I found with Color & Shine Super Lustrous Lipsticks – a new formula.  I said I had purchased three of the lipsticks; but I liked them so much that after swatching, I went back and bought three more! (Revlon is 40% off at Rite Aid this week, which helps.)

All six of the lipsticks I purchased are slightly translucent, but pigmented enough to show up easily.  They are slightly slick (but don’t feel overly slippery) and have a moderately glossy finish.

Revlon Plum Velour Swatch

Plum Velour

Plum Velour is my favorite; a purple toned berry. It’s not the same as Dior Addict Extreme in Black Tie, but it’s quite similar.

Revlon Berry Couture Swatch

Berry Couture

Berry Couture is a medium purple that transforms into a more berry shade on my lips; I like it, but it makes my teeth look SO yellow.

Revlon Fuchsia Shock Swatch

Fuchsia Shock

Fuchsia Shock is a clear, bright pink.  Because it’s sheer, it’s a great way to ease in to wearing a bright color.

Revlon Lovers Coral Swatch

Lovers Coral

Lovers [sic] Coral is, well, Coral. This one was a bit more sheer than the others.

Revlon Honey Bare Swatch

Honey Bare

Honey Bare is a nude – it’s very wearable since it’s sheer and not too pale.

Revlon Terra Copper Swatch

Terra Copper

Terra Copper has a very fine shimmer (the others are all shimmer-free). It’s brown on my arm, but has a hint of red on my lips; still definitely out of my comfort zone! I purchased it hoping it would be more reddish-brown.  I don’t see myself wearing this shade alone, but I do really like it layered with a sheer red.

Overall, I am really enjoying these lipsticks. The texture and pigmentation level is great, and just what I have been looking for these days.  If you’re looking for a sheer, but pigmented, lipstick at the drugstore, I’d definitely recommend these.

    These are so pretty! How much were they with the 40% off this week at Rite Aid?

      They were $7.99 full price, so $4.79 (plus tax) at 40% off! Rite Aid has the best prices in my area.

    Omg, I love your picks! Fuchsia Shock is such a perfect pink! I love the sheerness and the amount of shine too, WANT! ^^

    Thanks for the swatches! I wish the coral shade was stronger, but I’m surprised by Fuschia Shock. It’s a very pretty bright pink color. ^^

      I actually picked up the coral shade recently and I loveeee it! It’s not that sheer on me. It’s lightweight, but buildable. Perfect coral shade. Not too orange.

    These look really pretty! I’m surprised at how light they are compared to what I was expecting!

  • Josie

    How moisturizing (or not?) did you find this new formulation to be? thanks for the swatches! :)

  • Pamela

    Got the rich girl red or whatever it was and it feels real nice. I like the sheerness of it. Need to pick up a few more of these!

    When I first saw it I immediately recognised it as a pun of ‘lovers’ quarrel’. It seemed pretty obvious to me. Then again, I played a lot of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘why’ boardgame as a kid, and ‘lovers’ quarrel’ was a frequent murder motive in the game. *shrugs*

      Yep, it’s clearly a pun on that – the issue (for me at least!) is that they aren’t using an apostrophe, which bugs me!
