Revlon Lipgloss

Hey everyone,

I know I'm late with these, but I want to share with you these glosses. So, two weeks ago I went to Seattle and did some make-up/clothes shopping. I went to Ulta, and to my surprise they still have the limited edition Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss. I was really on a hunt for Peach Petal, but unfortunately they didn't have any in stock, so I went with Firecracker and Coral reef. For some reason I didn't see any of these limited edition Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Vancouver(If you live in Canada, did Revlon even released these glosses here at all??). So, anyways, as you all know I'm a nude girl, so I added one product in my basket and that's Nude Lustre.

I liked Coral Reef and Nude Lustre, but I regret buying Firecracker. If you are not familiar with Firecracker, it is the limited edition red gloss that is VERY SHEER! I thought this would be my favorite out of the three, but I hate it. The finish is way to sheer and it is more orange toned than red. I didn't even bother including Firecracker here. I know a lot of people love Firecracker, but not me.

So, here are my two Revlon glosses..

Nude Lustre and Coral Reef

I will be showing you guys some photos of what lipstick I will pair these glosses with.

I'll start off with Nude Lustre- Its a gorgeous nude, orangey/pinkish color that compliments my skin really well. It contains fine shimmers and is so pigmented. The gloss itself is non-sticky and smells great. This gloss will go with whatever eye makeup I'm wearing because the shade adds a bit of color to my face without overpowering my eyeshadow colors. Plus, it has SPF 15.

This is my natural lip color.
*I wasn't able to take a picture of GOSH Darling lipstick because my camera ran out of battery. SORRY, but I bet everyone knows how GOSH Darling looks like, it is nude. :D*

So..

This is Nude Lustre alone

Coral Reef- This colour is flattering on any skin tone. On my quite pigmented lips, it gives my lips a nice hint of pinky- coral colour without being too over the top. This has such a smooth texture that it is not sticky at all. Just like any other Revlon gloss, this has a nice smell and it does last a long time on the lips. I would pair this with MAC Jazzed or MAC Shy Girl or any coral toned lipstick.

How do you pair your lipstick ad lipgloss? Do you pair it with same shades(example: nude on nude, pink on pink and coral on coral) or do you just smack any combination? Share it with us :)

  2. Gorgeous I love these babies. I just bought one on a blog sale some of these are so hard to find. I usually pair up two similar shades. I might switch it up but I don't wear gloss and lipstick all the time feels heavy. I usually do lip liner with gloss. Love your lip combinations
