Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Gentlemen Prefer Pink Review

Revlon+Super+Lustrous+Lipstick+Gentlemen+Prefer+Pink+Review

I had got three lipsticks from Revlon Super Lustrous range in a discount offer on Revlon at an online store last month. I had reviewed two of these earlier, but the review of the third color got delayed because my work schedule had become very hectic. I wanted to write a review badly, but didn’t get time for it. Now, finally I decided no matter how hectic my duties or studies are getting, I have to get back to IMBB because my life is kind of incomplete without writing articles here.  So, here I am, with the review of the last lipstick from my Revlon haul.

Price:

Rs. 525

My Experience with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Gentlemen Prefer Pink:

Revlon Super Lustrous range comes in a boring, black case with a golden band in the centre mentioning the name of the brand. The shade name is mentioned at the bottom and there’s a small transparent window at the top which helps to recognize the shade.

Revlon Gentlemen Prefer Pink Lipstick 1

I think the packaging of Super Lustrous is quite boring. Nonetheless, it is sturdy and travel friendly because the cap gets locked when it is applied on the case. I have thrown this lipstick 2-3 times accidentally and it didn’t break. :-P

Gentlemen Prefer Pink looks like a barbie pink color in the bullet. I ordered this lipstick after seeing the bullet only. Though it looks Barbie Pink in the bullet, it comes out to be quite sheer pink with lilac undertones on lips. It has silver shimmer and has frost finish to it. I love Barbie pink colors, but this color doesn’t come out that good on my lips. I wish it was more pink and less lilac. It doesn’t brighten my face and looks nude from a distance. I am fair skin toned, but still it doesn’t suit me.

Revlon Gentlemen Prefer Pink Lipstick 2

I guess it will suit someone fairer and with more cool tones than my face. I won’t recommend it to wheatish or dusky skin tones. First, I thought that it isn’t coming out nicely because of my pigmented lips, so I dabbed a bit of concealer on my lips so that the true color shows up, but it looked weird.  This color has cool undertones, so it might clash with warm skin tones.

I am quite disappointed with the color but the quality of the lipstick is amazing. It is moisturising and doesn’t settle into fine lines. It doesn’t smudge or bleed.

Revlon Gentlemen Prefer Pink Lipstick 6

It glides on very smoothly and softly on my lips. A single swipe is enough for the color to show up well on my lips. Two swipes make it look frostier. It stays on my lips for about 2-3 hours.

Cons of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Gentlemen Prefer Pink:

  • The color doesn’t suit me at all and the color won’t suit medium to dark skin tones.

IMBB Rating:

For color: 2/5
Quality: 4.5/5

Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Gentlemen Prefer Pink?

I love Super Lustrous range but this color doesn’t look good at all on my lips. I think the color is too cool for my skin tone. Though the color looks amazingly pretty in the bullet and arm swatch, but doesn’t come out that good on my lips. If you think this color will suit you, check this out for sure, but don’t order it online before checking it in person. Since every person has a different color choice, you may like this color and if you like this color, I assure you that you won’t be disappointed with any other feature of this lipstick.

Have a nice day :)
