The other day I went to the Metro Centre and among several other purchases I bought two Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks. I tried the darker purple shade, Wild Orchid today thinking it would be a nice subtle one for the day. When I had swatched it in the shop it looked like a toned down version of MAC’s Full on Fuchsia. As much as I love that shade, it is quite scary for everyday wear.
I was wrong. It is perhaps brighter than Full on Fuchsia when applied straight from the bullet. It actually shocked me. I had to reapply with a lip brush to get a more subtler finish.
However, the colour is really beautiful and there’s nothing wrong with the way these apply. It doesn’t feel sticky on the lips and it does have great staying power. It’s probably a one that I would save for a night out rather than to wear for work during the day.
