Pinkalicious Lips

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Love That Pink

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. 🙂

Lips as Red as Oranges

So this is what I really do during my lunch when I should be eating. Buying lipstick and then wearing it and taking pictures in my car while listening to K-ROQ and hoping a Vampire Weekend song will play before I have to go back to the office where I will immediately eat off said lipstick as a result of drinking too much tea in an attempt to not freeze to death.

I LOOOOOVE this Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Royal Rush (735). I’m not too big a fan of red lipstick, but when I saw this color, I knew I had to have it. It’s bright and–while you can’t really see it in the picture–has a bit of an orange tint. I really love how it brightens up my face in a subtle but also major way, if that makes sense. 🙂

The lipstick has a subtle perfume to it but it’s not overpowering like some other lipsticks I’ve worn. It’s actually quite pleasant in a surprising way. Like you’ll catch it when you smile or turn and a breeze picks up on it.

To be honest, most lipsticks and glosses don’t last long for me in general because I’m always snacking or sipping tea and coffee. But I wore this out on an impromptu walk with Husband, and more than an hour later it was still fresh and bright like I had just put it on. I have never been able to really test how long a lip product lasts on me, though, but I was happy when I got home and saw that this lipstick had stayed put.

Totally plan to wear this during an upcoming weekend to San Diego for Husband’s birthday. I can’t wait! Now…what to wear, what to wear…
