Hitting the (Revlon) Lipstick Jackpot!
Ever buy a lipstick and feel like you’ve hit the jackpot? That’s how I feel about two new lipsticks that came home with me this weekend thanks to a fantastic sale at Shopper’s Drug Mart.
Behold, the beauty that is Raspberry Bite and Love that Pink.
Aren’t they pretty? They are just as pretty in the tube as they are on the lips. More on that in a bit! First, let me tell you the story of how they came home with me.
My pet peeve about drug store makeup shopping is the lack of ability to swatch properly as samples are often missing or just not available. I picked these two lipsticks based on what I could see from the clear top of the tube. My expectations were low. But when I got home and applied these on my lips, I heard the lipstick angels proclaiming their joy. A hit! A hit!
I fell head over heels in love.
These are my first two Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks, a line I’ve been eyeing recently thanks to Essie Button, who has reviewed them extensively on her blog and in her videos. Now that I’ve tried these two, I can’t believe I haven’t tried them before!
They are ah-mazing. They are highly pigmented, creamy and comfortable to wear. They feel luxurious. And I love, love, love the colours.
Love that Pink is a bright coral pink. This is a fun, yet sophisticated colour that is totally wearable on casual days or at the office. Raspberry Bite is a rich and dark berry red wine colour that makes me feel glam. Dare I say, it also makes me feel, in the words of my good friend Tracy, schmexxy, when I put it on?
Here’s Love that Pink. It makes me feel somewhat flirty when I put it on…Watch out husband!
And then there’s this colour. Raspberry Bite. It’s definitely schmexxy.
In all seriousness, I’m in love with these lipsticks. I’m already watching the flyers for another sale at Shopper’s.
I have my eye one or two…okay, three more colours from the line. I’m living up to the blog name once again.
What about you — have you tried these lipsticks? Do you have any recommendations?
