[English Review & Swatches] REVLON Super Lustrous Lipsticks

Hi loves. Today I have a review of Revlon lipsticks for you guys. This particular line is called ‘Super Lustrous’ which is quite famous among us makeup junkies. I have three colors I want to show you which are:

415 Pink in the Afternoon
435 Love That Pink
740 Certainly Red



Packaging
Each lipstick comes in a black plastic container with gold detailing and the name of the brand. On top of it (which I forgot to take a photo) is a transparent plastic which you can look through to see the color. Also, on the bottom of the lipstick there are name and number. I personally love this because I always want to know what color I am picking up as many ways as I can. *Laugh* Overall, the packaging is well-designed and classy. It looks simple yet elegant.
The only issue I have with this lipstick is a cap.  Based on my experiences, the cap will be loose after few uses no matter how. Two lipsticks that I own have already had this issue. The left one is a new one so I guess after using a while it will be as same as the other two.
Consistency & Longevity
The consistency of this lipstick is creamy. There is no shimmer in it. The color is pigmented, especially ones in red family. (I think general red lipsticks are supposed to be so.) The color shows up nicely on lips. Only one layer is enough but I find two layers are perfect and look more stunning and beautiful. This lipstick barely has any smell. However, if you smell it very closely you will notice a regular lipstick scent, which does not bother me anyway.
This lipstick lasts quite long I would say. It is not the best out there but it is decent. Lighter colors like Pink in the Afternoon may last 3-4 hours. Darker ones last approximately 4-5 hours. Sometimes I find my lipstick is almost gone but it leaves some stain to my lips. However, if you eat or drink it may not last as long as I have just stated. It all depends on the condition of you lips (e.g. chapped, dry) and a product that you use to prime your lips.
Swatches
 
415 Pink in the Afternoon
Pink in the Afternoon is such a perfect everyday-wear color for me. It is a nice subtle cool-toned pink. This color is very wearable and I think it will suit all skin tones. If you are fair, this is probably look like a Barbie pink to you. If you are yellow under-toned like me, this is appropriate for school or work. If you have darker skin tone, I think this one will be a great choice to pair with smokey eye. (Navy blue smokey eye to be precise. It looks ABSOLUTELY stunning, I am serious.)
 
435 Love That Pink
Love That Pink is a bright, darker pink which is almost red. This color is GORGEOUS. It reminds me of spring and summer and I think this is going to be my go-to color in those seasons. This color brings cheerfulness and liveliness to me. I love wearing this to go shopping or hang out with friends.
 Note: If you have pigmented natural lips, this can look like a bright red lipstick on your lips. (It happens to me. *Laugh*)
 
 740 Certainly Red
I could not agree more with the name. It is CERTAINLY red. This color is a classy cool-toned red which helps your teeth to look less yellow. This color reminds me of a very classy lady with a nice black dress from, let’s say, 30 years ago. I do not know why. *Laugh* This color is the most pigmented out of all that I have. It looks scary I guess, it is actually not that hard to wear. I love pairing this with a nice red lip pencil. This combination gives me the most classy, sophisticated look. I always get compliments when I wear this color.
Now these are swatches of three colors in one picture. The upper picture is when the sunlight hits them while the lower one has no light directly hits. The lower picture shows the most accurate color you see in the lipstick.
Price & Place to Buy
It costs around 130-190 baht (about $4 to $7) in Thailand depending on places and promotions.
You can find this from any drugstores, Boots, Watsons, or Revlon counters in department stores.
Score
Packaging: 3/5
Consistency: 4/4
Longevity: 4/5
Price: 5/5
In Total: 4/5
In conclusion, Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks are worth your money. They are very affordable, easy to find, and have a good quality. Also, they have a lot of colors for you to choose. In Thailand I think we have only 12-15 colors but I think in America they have a lot more. They may not be the best lipstick in the market, but they are definitely worth every penny.
Bonus picture for you guys.
Thank you for reading and sorry for my poor English. *Laugh*
Love,
