Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Love That Pink

I think Revlon is my favorite drugstore brand for lip products. Seriously. (NYX is a second favorite, although that butter lip gloss has totally leaked all over my makeup bag, making it a non-win this week. Great product, just terrible packaging.)

Every lipstick or gloss by Revlon that I’ve bought has turned out great, has amazing strong pigment and long-lasting bragging rights. They also leave my lips soft and moisturized, even their lipsticks and some stains (although, let’s be honest, all lip stains are a little harsh and drying on your pucker).

After hearing so many good things about the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick line, I went to Target and hunted some down. It was a tough decision between some colors, most notably the Wink for Pink, Fuschia Shock, or Love That Pink (can you tell I like pink?).

I decided that the Wink for Pink might be too nude on me, which tends to make me look washed out or just simply doesn’t go well with my skin tone. I already have way too many fuchsia everything (and I also got a lipgloss in that color, which I will review next Monday. Hey! Treat yo’self, amiright?), so I ended up getting Love That Pink.

The pigment is amazing, even on my annoyingly naturally dark lips (I can never wear certain colors I love). It lasts so long, that I even saw a hint of it after lunch when I usually would have eaten it off (or left it behind on my coffee mug lol). My favorite part is that it’s completely scent-less. I don’t mind certain perfumes or flavors on listicks, but for the most part they give me headaches.

The only shocker is that it is more on the red side than I had thought. Though, to be fair, it does look very close to what’s on the sticker.

I just have to keep hunting for more pinkalicious goodness. 🙂

Pretty-ish in Pink-ish

Life is full of little indulgences. Then I guess my life is pretty good because I buy myself a lip gloss every time I see them on display, and I don’t even know why. I don’t wear them all that much. I tend to reach for my Chapstick or lip balm because it’s simple and I don’t feel bad about immediately eating them off since I’m a grazer by nature, and a coffee addict.

But when I saw this NYX Intense Butter Gloss, I had to have it. It’s adorable! I’ve been wearing it with everything! So I don’t feel bad, since I’m actually using it.

I CAN change a leopard's spots.

Even though the pigment in most NYX lip glosses are very strong, the pink color turns out almost nude on me. Probably because I have very naturally dark lips, which I loathe. I can never wear colors I really love, and some glosses just don’t look well because they’re not tinted or pigmented enough. Don’t even get me started.

I like the color, but I guess it’s a good thing it looks nude on me since it’s not hard to match. So I wore it with a bunch of outfits. Here’s a sneak peak on some upcoming dress tutorials. 🙂

It goes perfect with this pink swimsuit cover-up. More pictures and tutorials will be released soon, I promise!

Stay tuned for the next few weeks to see these dresses in action!
