Product Being Reviewed:
Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick – Silver City Pink.
INR 525 for 4.2 gms.
Nothing is mentioned about it on the lipstick.
Again, no mention about them.
Product Description (I got this information from a website):
It is enriched with LiquiSilk technology, a revolutionary way to evenly unify pure color with silk-enriched mega moisturizers and vitamins.
- Lips look gorgeous, silky and smooth.
- Rich,full coverage stay-true color wears evenly for lasting richness and vibrance.
It comes in a black, sturdy plastic case. The pull-open black cap of the lipstick is transparent at the top, through which the color of the lipstick can be seen. The bottom of the lipstick case has a pink sticker which bears the name and number of the shade of lipstick.
It is a faint, peach kind of pink and is full of silver and golden shimmer.
It is a frosty lipstick, not very smooth in texture. When applied on top of a lip balm, it glides smoothly.
About 3 hours without food and water and 1-2 hours with the same.
My Experience with Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick – Silver City Pink:
This lipstick belongs to my aunt, who had come visiting us a few months back from the U.S. She forgot to take this before leaving. Later on, when I told her about it, she asked me to keep it for myself. I was not exactly happy to do so. The color of the lipstick looked pale to me, with a whole lot of shimmer. I was sure it would not suit me, still, just to check how it looks on me, I applied it on my lips. Oh God! It looked as if I was sick or something. My lips looked washed out and the shimmer, the less said about it the better. It is overpowering and dominates the color, which is anyways very light.
I can’t understand why Revlon had to add so much of shimmer to the color, may be to justify the “pearl” thing or what I don’t know. Had it been a sheer, creamy lipstick, it would have been so much better.
I was badly stuck with the lipstick. Niether could I apply it, nor could I give it to my maid’s daughter. I could but my mother wouldn’t let me do so, since its an expensive lipstick, neither was she ready to use it. This lipstick was lying useless in my vanity for quite some time. Then, one day when my friend was raiding my vanity to find a lipstick matching with her dress, she got hold of this. I told her all about it and she gave me an idea. She told me to use this with a light hand on top of matte lipsticks to add some shimmer to them. My mom has a ton of boring lipsticks in boring shades and I thought I could use them, combined with this lipstick. That is how I have been using it, I’ve used it thrice since then.
When applied with a lip brush, the shimmer looks controlled and doesn’t look as bad as it does (on my lips) on its own. The staying power of the combined thing is about 4-5 hours without having anything and 2-3 hours with meals. The lipstick on its own stays for around 3 hours without meals and about an hour or so with the same. The lipstick color fades evenly, but the shimmer remains the same.
Let me sum up the pros and cons of the lipstick for you:
Pros of Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick Silver City Pink:
- The packaging is sturdy and I like the see-through top of the cap, which makes identifying the lipstick an easy task.
- The color would suit fair-skinned beauties.
- The lipstick is not fragrant.
- Revlon lipsticks are available everywhere.
- It is not tested on animals.
- It covers pigmented lips to a good extent.
Cons of Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick Silver City Pink:
- The lipstick is frosty and full of shimmer.
- The shimmer dominates the faint color.
- After the lipstick fades, the shimmer remains on the lips.
- The staying power could have been better.
- The price is quite high for 4 gms of the product.
- The color is not buildable, the shimmer is.
Will I Purchase Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick – Silver City Pink Again?
No, I won’t. The color doesn’t suit me and the shimmer is way too much.
Do I Recommend Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick – Silver City Pink?
Those who like extra shimmery, frosty lipsticks might like this. For everyone else, I would never recommend this.
