Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Rose Dew Review

Today, I will be reviewing my second lipstick from Revlon Super Lustrous range. I recently got three lipsticks from this range because they were available at discount. :-P I don’t know why it happens to me that whenever I decide I won’t shop more makeup, something tempting like discounts happen the very next day and then, I can’t control myself. Does that happen with you too? I am literally tired of this greed of mine.

Revlon+Super+Lustrous+Lipstick+Rose+Dew+Review

I think I should control my frustration on my never-ending shopping now and review this lipstick (by the way, I am bickering so much about shopping because I just placed a few orders today and I am kind of pissed off with myself now. :-P)

Price:

Rs. 525 for 4.2 grams.

Rose Dew 1

My Experience with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Rose Dew:

Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks come in a simple, black case with a golden band in the centre mentioning the brand name. The shade name and number is mentioned at the bottom of the case.  A unique feature in their case is that they have a transparent, round window on the top which helps in easy recognition of the shade of the lipstick if you own more than one lipstick from this range.

Rose Dew 2

Rose Dew is a frosty peach-coral color with golden shimmer in it. This color isn’t bright at all and is in fact, very subtle. It looks quite natural on me in a single swipe. It is a kind of color which any makeup beginner can wear without worrying about getting overboard. It is perfect for office, college and just a normal walk to a nearby store. This color will suit fair complexion the most. It has the tendency to wash out medium to dark skin tones. This color won’t be loved by all. In fact, I myself don’t love it too much. It is just a normal lipstick for me which I wear when I want a very natural look and when I am in no mood of makeup. It doesn’t brighten my face, but thank God, it doesn’t wash me out. It has frost effect. The frostiness isn’t visible when it is freshly applied but after about 2 hours, you can easily see the frostiness this color offers. I would have liked it more if the frostiness didn’t show up so much after about 2 hours.

Rose Dew 3

It isn’t intensely pigmented and requires two swipes to completely hide the pigmentation of my lips. The golden shimmer isn’t gritty. The shimmer is visible but doesn’t look over the top at all. It glides on very smoothly and softly on my lips. It is not at all drying and doesn’t settle into fine lines. It stays on my lips for about 3 hours. I had heard that this shade is quite similar to Temptress, but I found both the shades to be completely different. One is a soft peach with shimmer and the other is a beautiful Barbie pink color.

Rose Dew 4

Though the texture and staying power of this lipstick are great, I am not a big fan of this lipstick because of the frostiness and the color. I like peaches and corals on my lips, but I don’t like the frostiness and shimmer in this color. All the peaches and corals I have instantly brighten out my face but this one doesn’t. You may like the color in the swatches, but I will recommend you to check this color out once at the counter before getting this.

Lipstick Swatch

It is definitely a very unique color but it is a kind of color which can have different effect on different faces.

Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Rose Dew?

I love Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks but I am not a big fan of this color. So, I won’t repurchase this color but I will continue purchasing other colors from this range. If you like the color in the swatch, be sure about it before you spend money on it.
