Often, drugstore lipsticks come in cheap and tacky tubes. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks don’t. The lipstick bullet is housed in a black and gold tube which is simple, yet beautiful and timeless. The top is see through which means that you’ll be able to quickly spot the shade you’re looking for in your stash.
The shade I have, which was given to me by my lovely reader Janessa, is Primrose. It is a beautiful cool-toned pink shade with purple undertones, which looks very flattering on pale princesses, even those who are warm-toned, but can look ashy on damsels with darker skintones. It’s a shade that can be worn with every look, weather natural, colourful or smokey.
Colour payoff is good. It can be sheered out for a wash of colour or layered for a more intense, bolder look. The texture is quite creamy, allowing the lipstick to glide smoothly on the lips, but it’s not very moisturizing, so I’d recommend you wear lip balm underneath. It is also a good idea to exfoliate before application as Primrose can emphasize any dry patches your lips may have.
But to me, the biggest downside is its staying power, or lack of it. Primrose only lasts about an hour and a half on me, less if I eat, which means that it needs to be frequently reapplied throughout the day. I’m really in love with the shade (it’s so pretty and versatile!) so I don’t mind that too much, especially considering how cheap the price is.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Primrose is a cool toned pink shade with purple undertones which complements any look, but will make darker skintones look ghastly. Pigmented and creamy, it lacks staying power and can emphasize dry patches.
