How was your weekend. Mine was cool as we drove down to beautiful beach and enjoyed a good debate on vegan and non vegan grill with our picnic group. This is such weird contrast between me (a vegetarian wife) and my hubby (a typical non veg). Even our friends are also blessed with same contrasting feature in their respective partners. And often there is tug of war between wives & hubbies especially when we have to use same grill on day outs.. Lol Anyways today I am going to introduce another, not my favorite, but my MIL’s fair choice, a matte lipstick from Revlon namely: Revlon Super lustrous Matte Wine Not.

My Experience With Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick, Wine Not:
I guess this is the most deep wine red color I have ever noticed in my MIL’s vanity bag. The “Wine Not” shade seems burgundy red to me with hint of brown on lips. Personally I love burgundy color on hair and outfits but I do not like burgundy lips.. This would be my least favorite lipstick from her collection. However she loves it as much as she loves other deep reds & browns. It seems as she is ageing gracefully she is tending to love deep colors as compared to light tinted lipsticks. So she gave me all her Revlon collection which was in her not so favorite list yayy.. Though this lipstick is matte, it glides like butter on lips and does not cause any drying effect on lips as long as it stays on lips. She loves to wear it on mostly humid days and scorching summers when she is sweating and when her skin is well hydrated.
She never felt need of swiping lip balm beneath these matte lipsticks and I also tried some of her matte Revlon lipsticks and felt same hydrating nature as any normal lipstick. I feel this shade will do justice on matured women rather than gals or ladies in early 30’s 20’s as when I swiped it on my lips I was looking a vamp believe me.. This shade is not for everyone. Even fair gals should stay away else you may end up looking vamp.. It will look best on matured medium skin toned ladies I feel. The best thing of Revlon matte lipsticks is that even if they are matte they won’t settle in fine lines nor exaggerate them. The staying power is also decent from 4-6 hours with heavy meals and on fasting days it stays for pretty 6-8 hours. She says that she will surely repurchase this lipstick once finishing off current one as she loves deep colors you know..
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick Matte Wine Not:
A deep true burgundy red shade with hint of browns
It glides easily on lips even when it is a matte lipstick
It does not dry lips or settle in fine lines
It feels light on lips as long as it stays
Pretty decent staying power of 4-6 hours with heavy meals and during fasting days it may stay upto 8 hours
No need of using lip balm beneath this lipstick it feels hydrating and glides like butter on lips
Such attractive black case and travel friendly packaging
Cons of Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick Matte Wine Not:
• The shade is tricky won’t suit everyone.
Other than this shade I do not find any con in Revlon matte lipsticks. However I personally love scented goodies but I may still use Revlon for its creamy texture and pretty decent staying power. I would like to recommend it for all elder females in your family It will surely compliment them best. Hope you liked it..
