Review: Revlon Fire & Ice Superlustrous Lipsticks


Product Info from Revlon:
Silky smooth, creamy formula with silk-enriched mega moisturisers and vitamins.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 450.00 | Php 925.00 for the Limited Edition vintage case
Special Promo: For a minimum purchase of Php 2,000 worth of Revlon cosmetics, get the Limited Edition Superlustrous lipstick in Vintage case for Php 500 only.

WEIGHT: 4.2 grams

SHADES : Superlustrous lipsticks are available in over 70 shades, but only a few are available locally.

PROS:
* no weird lipstick smell (*ehem* NYX)
* i love the classic black tube packaging with Revlon's classic logo in cursive
* The texture of Demure, Temptress & Siren reminds me of MAC Lustre Lipsticks, while Light and Fire is similar to MAC Amplified creme in terms of texture and finish.
* Amazing staying power (Light & Fire), lasts for about 5 hours on me. It leaves a nice stain on my lips even after eating/drinking.
* Buildable color (Siren & Light and Fire)
* creamy texture, glides like a dream


CONS:
* not as moisturising as Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks, so make sure to apply lipbalm underneath.
* Demure & Tempress barely shows up on me. I have to layer it several times, but the shades are good though if you're sporting a colorful eye makeup or smokey eyes.
* Staying power is so-so (Demure & Temptress), it lasts for about 3 hours, but if you eat or drink expect it to fade pretty quickly.


ADDICTION FACTOR:
If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to MAC lipsticks, I highly recommend Revlon. They are inexpensive, creamy and come in different textures similar to MAC lipsticks (matte, frost & cream). You'll get 2 lipsticks for the price of 1 MAC lippie. I'm eyeing on Pink Pout (matte finish) coz of the good reviews.

RATING : 3/5

My favorite among the 4?

FIRE AND ICE!
I know YOU didn't expect this shade to be my favorite, but I love how it flatters my NC20 skintone.
My officemate even noticed and asked what shade I was wearing.. she even tried it on and loved the shade! My friend's skintone is NC30 btw and it suits her too =)


Till next time,

Hi sis, first of all thank you so much for adding me to your blog roll.

the Vintage Fire & Ice lip shade really looks good on you. I think temptress and demure should have shown if only they were matte. hehe

The colors are all so pretty! I like them all. But I really want to try the orange one. I wonder if okay siya sa morena skin.. ^^

Charming Vanity said...

Great swatches! I came across them yesterday at a local drugstore and was contemplating whether to purchase. But since I am now on project 10 pan I guess I gotta pass it for a short while. Definitely love fire and ice!

I am still thinking about getting Fire and Ice. I have an nc42 skin skin tone so it might make me clash and might make me look darker.

I agree, Fire & Ice is really nice, surprisingly nice no!

Khymm's mood+which Revlon lippie to put on:

feeling girly & dainty: Temptress
au naturale: Demure
real pretty & nice: Fire & Ice

Siren looks a bit blah on the lips, eh? Are you fond of orange lipsticks?

Sharon said...

Hey Miss Shopaholic! ;). Gorgeous lipsticks! Love them all. I love the nudish colours so my favourite would probably be demure, but they're all lovely!
