Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Peach Petal & Lilac Pastelle


Yesterday I was in Wal Mart, (I know, I'm my life is just so classy!) I popped in for the ground chicken that was on sale, btw, and even thought I was totally tired and feeling lazy, I hauled my butt to the other end of the store just to "take a peek" in the cosmetics section. It isn't very often that I've found super great deals at Wal Mart but since I was there I figured why not. It turned out to be totally worth it as I not only found two glosses I'd wanted (ages ago and had forgotten about) but I also got them on sale- $3.97 as opposed to $9.97? Score!



The shades I grabbed - Peach Petal and Lilac Pastelle- have been around for a while and have defiantly been around the blogosphere block a few times, so this post is a bit redundant, but oh well. These squared tubes have your basic sponge tip/ doe foot applicators that get the job done. The formula on these is great, just slightly sticky to give a bit more lastability (I know, made up word, but it works) and the texture is similar to MAC's Creamsheens. Like the Creamsheens these are a bit sheer, but still give a nice wash of colour. The specific shades I chose are also creams. I do wish it was easier to get glosses that are creams. Shimmer can be great on occasion, but I really prefer a cream finish.

(note: the shimmer seen on my hand is not the gloss, it was residue from an in-store swatch)


Peach Petal: A Sheer creamy peach but it since it is sheer the natural colour of your lips gives it a pinky undertone. A very pretty shade, that does not look overly milky on. It looks like it has settled a bit in the photo, but in person you get a clean looking cover.



Lilac Pastelle: This one looks quite purple in the tube, but it is a really pretty sheer lilac on. As with Peach Petal this looks like it has settled, but you don't see it in person. I love the shade of this and know I will get a lot of wear out of it.

Overall, I am super pleased with these glosses and will for sure pick up other shades if I come across them. I have to say my inner 12 year old was kind of hoping Peach Petal would smell like peaches. Oh well...!

Have you tried these? Which shades do you like?





P.S What do you think of my blog background? I really think I need a total re-design, but I am feeling so lazy. I'm not sure if I want the dots back or not... thoughts?

  2. Do look for them! Especially if you can find them on sale, they are a bit pricey at their normal price.
