I was a little bit disappointed with the Revlon Super Lustrous Matte lipsticks. I used to have Stormy Pink and Wine Not. I prefer my mattes to be opaque and those two just didn’t cut it.
I was excited when I found out that Revlon was coming out with a new matte line. I thought maybe they’d add a little bit more pigment into the products. Still, I was skeptic, so I waited for reviews and stumbled on Juvy’s experience with them. From her lip swatches, I can tell that the products are pigmented for a balm, they’re just not pigmented enough for me. I could still see some skin showing through and it seemed splotchy on the lips. Needless to say, I crossed them out on my wish list.
I’ve always wanted to try an in your face purple lipstick like MAC Heroine. I was just not willing to spend that much for a color that might not suit me.
Here I am with a poker face and Shameless worn as a lipstick and blush.
I was hoping it’d give me the contra vida look but my chronic sad-looking face just won’t allow it.
Here’s an attempt at looking fierce:
Had a good laugh at myself on this one.
I like the color. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for the finish and longevity. The product doesn’t quite set. Even your normal talking and smacking can move the product around. After just a few hours, the pigment will clump at areas on my lips. That’s without eating and drinking.
It’s a shame, really, since Shameless is such a fun color.
That being said, doesn’t it make such a gorgeous blush? I’ve not been using it on the lips lately mainly because it’s difficult to get to look even. But I love it on my cheeks. It’s easy to blend and it stays long enough. It’s one of those products that makes me feel so in love with myself that I want to marry me. Most blushes tend to look the same on my face but this one is just… I have no words. Just love.
