Revlon is one of my favorite lipstick brands and today I’m reviewing a gorgeous raspberry shade from the Super Lustrous range!
Price : Rs 550 for 4.2 g
My take on the Product
The Super Lustrous lipsticks come in a black and gold simple cylindrical tube packaging. The top of the cap has a transparent cover that gives a peek of the color of the lipstick. The bullet of the lipstick has a sharp fine tip and I find this shape more easy to work with than the blunt flat tips of the Colorburst range. The black and gold packaging is quite classic, almost vintage-looking.
The lipstick is soft, intensely pigmented and buttery smooth in texture. Despite being super slick, its quite sturdy and the tip doesn’t break or wobble during application. The formula is moisturizing and the smooth, the creamy finish gives a fuller appearance to the lips. The fine lines are minimized, lips are hydrated and smooth for a long time after application. It feels very light and comfortable on the lips With this particular shade, I experienced a tiny bit of bleeding near the corners of the mouth after meals since the texture is very creamy. Using a lip liner or dabbing a bit of concealer around the edges of the lips usually takes care of that. Even after about 4 hours of wear, the lips looked and felt smooth and hydrated while there was a bit of color fading. Despite the intense pigment, the lipstick is not heavily staining and the color does not settle into lip lines. Depending on what you eat/drink during this duration, the lipstick stays for 4-6 hours with fading after meals. Overall, the formula is just fantastic and the comforting, hydrating texture works very well for the winters.
The shade Cherries in the Snow is an intense raspberry shade that’ll look gorgeous on Indian skin. The color is darker and more intense than how it appears in the pictures here. If you like wearing deep, rich lip colors – you would love this shade! Younger women wanting to experiment with winter makeup trends should give this a try. It brightens up the face while still maintaining the deep, rich quality of a winter lip color. It doesn’t age the face like certain dark shades can do sometimes. Highly recommended!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks are great value for money – they are buttery smooth, well pigmented, hydrating on the lips and stay for a good amount of time without heavily staining the lips. Cherries in the Snow is a gorgeous intense raspberry shade that’ll work across skin tones. If wine and oxblood shades look too dark and dull on you, give this shade a try. It brightens up the face while maintaining the deep, rich quality of a winter lip color. Except for minor bleeding during meals, this is a fantastic lipstick!
