Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Red Lacquer

Follow on Bloglovin
Welcome back!
Today I have a lovely little review for all of you. Yesterday my friend picked me up, and after chatting about boy problems over frozen yogurt (I was good, and only got a half portion with fruit toppings & btw cherry jubilee is delish!) we decided to make another trip to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, there still were no real techniques brushes to be had in the location closest to my humble abode. Instead I found a nice scrubby-pad for washing my face, and a Revlon lipstick. I also bought a cure mint coloured tank with a key (I have an obsession with both, so it was made for me wasn't it) but this isn't the point of this blog post. After swatching what felt like EVERY lippy in the store, I came across this little treasure:

It's a warm-toned red.
What it looks like on my lips. Oh hey, there's the shirt I bought!
I know what you're thinking. Another red lipstick? Well, it's not just ANY red lipstick. It is unlike anything that I own. And although it says on the package that it's a pearl finish, there isn't any glitter or shimmer that's visible to the naked human eye. Why is this special? Well, for one thing, many of the red lippies that I own are a matte or satin finish. This one feels like a lip balm on the lips, and comes off sheer but with build-able colour. FINALLY A RED THAT I CAN APPLY WITHOUT A MIRROR!  Yes, my reaction may be a bit excessive, but I've been longing for an everyday red that I can pull off during the day without whipping out my mirror and lip brush. This lipstick is a Godsend! And you may say that it is similar to the revlon lip butters in texture and colour payoff, but for 2-3 dollars less it's a steal! I think this lipstick is an item that everyone who loves that "pin-up" style red should have in their collection. I could say this lipstick is definitely a must have, and will be one of my current favourites for quite a while!
