Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Plum Star

I would never have bought the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Plum Star had the SA not insisted that I try it out before actually making up my mind. I was looking for a plum shade to go with my dress that I was to wear for a friend’s wedding. The lipstick in the tube did not look appealing at all but like all SAs she did not let me off the hook easily. I thank her for being so insistent 🙂

What I think about Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Plum Star:

The lipstick comes in a black coloured plastic tube packing with a golden band on which “Revlon” is imprinted. The cap of this lipstick has become loose and keeps coming off. I find the packaging tacky. The cap has a transparent top through which the colour can easily be spotted. It has a mild ignorable fragrance.

As the name suggests, Plum Star is a deep purple coloured lipstick. The name of the lipstick is not at all misleading. It feels like you are looking at a ripe plum. The lipstick contains multi-coloured glitter which is gritty. The texture is quite buttery and glides easily on the lips. The pigmentation is not that great and gives a sheer finish. But it can be built up with more swipes. The lips need to be completely dry before applying the lipstick otherwise it does not stick to the lips.
The lasting power of the lipstick is about 3-4 hours and keeps the lips moisturised during that time. After which it leaves behind a pink coloured stain on the lips which lasts for another couple of hours atleast. Unfortunately the lipstick did feather after a couple of hours even though the company claims otherwise. The glitter also spreads all around the lips. The lipstick is also transferable.
