My Take on Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Hot Shimmer:
I am not a fan of shimmer lipsticks personally. Being dusky skinned, I have to choose lipstick shades very carefully so that it does not wash me out or look over the top. This one was a gift from my mother-in-law. I appreciate her choice in a way as she got me something which I didn’t own – a shimmer frost lipstick.
Packaging: This one comes in a trademark black plastic packaging like other Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks with a gold band in the centre having Revlon engraved on it. It has a transparent see-through cap which helps identify the lipstick when in a hurry.
Color: It is an orange-red lipstick with loads of shimmer. Like most of the other shimmer lipsticks, this one is quite sheer too, but the color actually shows up on my partially pigmented lips in one swipe itself. It doesn’t settle into fine lines on the lips. I feel, this shade would suit warmer skin tones more. This would go well with Indian attires, in my opinion.
Texture: As the lipstick has lots of shimmer, it doesn’t give that creamy feel to the lips. However, nothing that irritates you either. Also, it is moisturizing enough for me to skip using the lip balm underneath.
Finish: As mentioned on the lipstick cap, it is a “frost” finish shimmer lipstick.
Staying Power: Hot Shimmer actually stays on for only 2-3 hours without a meal. After which, it starts fading out and leaves behind those shimmers which actually looks a little weird.
Overall, this is one lipstick with good color pay-off and frosted shimmers. It would look good for an evening function/party. It is definitely not meant for office wear.
Pros of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Hot Shimmer:
- Really good pigmentation, one swipe is enough to cover full lips.
- Color shows well on pigmented lips as well.
- In spite of being a frosted lipstick, it is actually very moisturizing.
- No weird smell that some lipsticks have.
- Comes with a see-through cap.
Cons of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Hot Shimmer:
- Though it is a nice party lipstick color, I find it a little tricky to use, mainly because of the shimmer in it.
- Average staying power.
Would I Repurchase Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Hot Shimmer?
No, I don’t think I would be able to use even this one completely. I have used it hardly twice ever since I got it as a gift. If you are looking for an orange-red lipstick and if you are okay with lots of shimmer in it, you can try this out.
