Revlon has got to be one of my favorite drugstore products. I’ve been loving their lip butters which give so much lalalove to my lips and I also own a matte lipstick which is pretty good as well. I’m still in the process of opening and reviewing products from my hoardscapades (haha is that even a word?) in the recent past. I have so much makeup to review, so much new makeup I just want to purchase (huhu I need to get out of this makeup rehab fast!!!) and so little time!
Anyhoo, let’s begin our lipstick talk. I purchased two Revlon Superlustrous Lipsticks, one cream (berry haute) and one pearl (peach me). I’m sorry but I don’t know how much these cost as of the moment but I’m guessing that it is in the P500 price range. Each tube has 0.15oz worth of product. These come in the classic Revlon lipstick packaging. The plastic is quite shiny while the packaging of the Revlon matte lipsticks is matte. I like that the top view of these lippies are transparent and allows one to find lipstick shades conveniently.
Berry haute is a purplish mauve shade. It looks a bit intimidating from the tube but applies beautifully. The intensity of the purple is medium so I think that it’s perfect for people who want to try the famous purple lipstick trend right now. It’s perfect for those who are hesitant to try deep purples and just want to get the feel of having purple lips. I think it actually looks like a purple berry shade when worn. As its name suggests, this creme lipstick is indeed very creamy and emollient although these aren’t as glossy as the Revlon lip butters. One of my favorites parts of this lipstick has got to be the fact that it doesn’t have any scent whatsoever. This lasts around 3-4 hours on my lips.
If all Revlon superlustrous cremes are like this, I’d want to try out other shades from the same line. I think that this would suit medium to fair-skinned people. It would still suit olive-skinned people but I think a deeper shade of purple would be a better fit for them. :)
I have to admit something. I bought this while I was under the impression that it was a matte peach shade. I was shopping in one of the supermarkets in Florida (I forgot which supermarket already :( ) when I found this. I remember the store either not allowing testers or not having completes testers for the products. My companions were in a rush to leave so I just grabbed this thinking it was the shade I wanted. :(
The shade is a creamy peach shade with tiny gold shimmer. The shimmer isn’t chunky per se but I think it makes the lipstick slightly more drying on the lips. The shade itself is quite pretty, surprisingly. I’m saying surprisingly because I was instantly turned off by this lippie the moment I saw the shimmer. This is the first and only lippie that I own that has shimmer. I really do not like having shimmer/frost/glitter in my lipsticks. However, I find that the lipstick itself looks OK on me. Its formulation is still quite good; still better than a lot of drugstore lipsticks I’ve tried. It applies smoothly on my lips and is unscented as well. This doesn’t feel cheap on my lips. However, I don’t like that the lipstick leave residues of glitter on my lips even after the actual color has faded.
Overall, this lipstick isn’t so bad as I describe it to be. I think I’m just really a glitter/shimmer hater but I think it still might work for those who like shimmer in their lippies. This is a nice neutral shade that can be worn everyday.
Revlon has delivered quality products yet again and has not yet failed to disappoint me. I really love Berry Haute and would recommend for you guys to try if if you want to get into the purple-lip trend without going too bold. I would personally want a bolder color though just because I’m super open to experimenting with bold shades. I wouldn’t repurchase lippies from the pearl line because I’m assuming that they all have a similar finish as that of peach me’s. I wouldn’t say peach me was a complete miss. It still is a pretty good Revlon lippie. It’s a nice shade and feels smooth on the lips. I think I’m just extra biased against frosty/shimmery lippies. Teehee!
What do you think of these lippies? Do you own any of them? :)

Berry Haute looks so pretty! It just sucks that it isn’t matte :(02/08/2014 at 1:57 AM
I like it’s formula because they aren’t drying and matte shades tend to be drying for my already dry lips. :))02/25/2014 at 12:58 PM
