Talk about second chances! If you have been reading my posts you’d know that I give any product fair amount of chances to work for me. But this one just refuses to cooperate. Like seriously? What is the deal with you little guy? The name itself is so confusing, it says Lustrous and then also Matte.
I ordered it with so many expectations, I loved it when it arrived, I so loved the color. And this is how it turned out. Too disappointed 😦 (more than a sad face).
Well! Hi everyone!
Enough of my ranting. You must have guessed by now how bad my experience is with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. I’ll just proceed with the review.
How I apply – Well for this one I actually did everything I could. After exfoliating my lips –
- Applied it without lip balm – did NOT work.
- Applied it with lip balm – did NOT work.
- Applied it with lip balm and concealer – did NOT work.
- Applied it with lip balm, took off the extra balm with tissue and then went ahead with VERY small strokes in downward direction for upper lip and upward direction for lower lip – FINALLY worked *Phew.
Shade – Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – I’m Bubbly 037
Color & pigmentation – Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick I’m Bubbly is such a beautiful girly bright pink shade. However the pigmentation is not that much and the coverage is quite poor. I have quite pigmented lips and it did not cover them even after multiple swipes (strokes in my case).
Stay – 3.5-4.5 hours
Texture – Although Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick says it is matte but I did find some sheen in it. It did not dry my lips, may be because of the lip balm. It is creamy and settles into fine lines which gives a very unwearable, unflattering look. And trust me you can’t wear it like that. And if you were brave enough to do it then you would surely get comments like – “Eww, what’s that on your lips”, “Did you not check the mirror before stepping out”.
Fragrance – None.
Transfer – It does transfer.
Packaging & Quantity – It comes in a round black packaging with golden belt on which it’s written REVLON in black. You can see the color from the top which is transparent plastic. Also the inner body is golden. And at the bottom you can find the shade name. It is travel friendly. You can hear the click sound on closing. You get 4.2g of product.
Price – Rs.599 (I got it on discount from nykaa.com for Rs.539)
So, my outer lips seemed visibly purplish due to its poor coverage. I would definitely not recommend it to people with pigmented lips like mine. It finally gave me a strong lip balm look which I could have easily obtained with a LIP BALM (which is mind you, a lot CHEAPER and easier to apply). I will somehow work around this product but won’t buy another from this range.
MM love – 2.5 (*Only because I loved the color and it finally worked)
PS: I broke it *sob sob. Must have applied too much pressure in frustration.
Have you tried this range? How was your experience?
