I bought these a while ago but haven't been using them a whole lot up until this past couple of weeks. And now, I'm hooked. I don't leave the house without one in my purse.
I'm normally a MAC Lipglass type of girl since they have amazing staying power, but after a while that sticky, honey-like consistency on your lips gets annoying. Especially when my lips are super dry. So when I grabbed one of the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses on a whim while I was rushing to get to work, I realized that this may just be my new holy grail lipgloss.
The Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glosses are a lightweight and slightly sheer formula that not only looks great on the lips, it moisturizes them too! Although it isn't meant to be a moisturizing lipgloss, I found that while most lipglosses only make my dry lips worse, these happen to camouflage and even help heal my dry lips. Can't go wrong with that!
The colors are slightly sheer, but still give off enough pigmentation to add a punch of color to the lips. I currently have Coral Reef, Pink Pop and Lilac Pastelle and I love them all.

Coral Reef is probably my favorite and actually has the strongest color pigmentation in comparison to the other two. It is a orange-tinted coral and while it may look rather orange in the tube, it shows up as a very wearable coral lip color. I love it over MAC Jazzed Lipstick from the MAC In the Groove Collection or even over a nude lipstick such as Blankety to add just a hint of color.
Pink Pop is my second favorite and it looks great on its own for just a slight tint of pink on the lips, or on top of pink or nude lipsticks such as MAC Angel Lipstick or Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick. It is a true hot pink, but because the formula is so sheer, it makes a great layering gloss.
Lilac Pastelle is my least favorite of the three, although this doesn't mean I don't like it. It is a very pretty pale lavender and has surprisingly strong pigmentation. It comes off as very milky when worn on its own or with pale lipsticks so this is definitely a lip gloss that is best used to tone down a darker lipstick by using a very small amount. It might be more wearable, however, if you have pale to light skin tones. But medium and dark skin tones should be aware that this does come off chalky and far too light. I found it looks great over dark plum or wine-colored lipsticks when dabbed in the center of the lips and then spread out over the rest of the lips using a lip brush or your finger. This just brightens up the lipstick color a bit.
But overall, I really do love the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses because they have great staying power and aren't too heavy on the lips. Their sheer formula makes them great lip tints or a layering gloss. There is really a lot of ways you can wear these glosses, not just slapping some lipgloss on out of the tube. Be creative! And they are only around $5!! Quite a deal when compared to MAC's $14 price tag for one Lipglass.
