Swatch, FOTD - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Fire & Ice

Thanks to the relaunching of 2010, now many of us know about this legendary red lipstick that was originally introduced in 1952.

Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick  Fire  &  Ice 

This lipstick is probably the BRIGHTEST color that I own.
At a glance, it is a bright orange-based warm red, but there is certain amount of pink/neon in it if you take a second look.
I suspect that is why this blindingly bright shade is still wearable and even flattering for me. ;)
Nonetheless, this is an amazing red shade although it might not be your everyday red.

To me, Revlon is a company with reserved force.
I know that this company was originally a competitor of Estee Lauder (They just took very different marketing tactics and now stand on very different places.), but the fact speaks for itslef that they have introduced a shade like this in the 50's and that color still works now.

This is definitely a retro red but there is also very modern quality to it (unlike it's sister Cherries in the Snow, which I will do a post soon).
The formula is fantastic. very moisturizing and long lasting.


For overall look, I decided to go overboard and have some fun so I wore REALLY BIG falsies. ;p
(These were included in Tiffany's giveaway package that I won a while ago. Thanks again, Tiffany!)
They are called butterfly lashes  and indeed they remind me of big butterfly wings! :)

  10. aww Rinny, i don't know what to say. thanks so much! :)
    i wasn't sure about this look thinking it is kabuki-sh. lol
    i just wanted to have some fun with my makeup. totally editorial. those lashes are not going to daylights too often. ;p

  11. Nikki, thank you so much. :)
    if i wear this during the daytime, i blot it a lot and it looks much more wearable.
    i love this color. ^-^

  12. thank you, debi. ;)
    funny thing is i've always thought those lenses are too big, but they finally looked alright paired with huge lashes. now i understand why everybody wears falsies with big lenses. lol

  13. i am glad it worked out. like you said i wanted to balance out the bold lip color. :)
    of course, this is just for the pure love of makeup. i don't think i've worn big lashes like that even on stage. ;p

  19. Hi, wow this lipstick looks great on you! I love Revlon's super lustrous line! I wish they have this one here, the ones I have don't have the part that says Revlon :(

    ReplyDelete
  20. hey Diana, thank you. ;)
    that one was an LE with retro logo. there are silver packaged on as well. i thinking about buying them as well. they are still available at many places and not that expensive.
    the lipstick itself is the same since it was already part of the core line. :)

  29. Are the lashes made of human hairs? It looks very natural in pictures :)

    The lip color looks amazing, I learn something new everyday,didn't have the slightest idea before that Revlon was once on par with Estee Lauder.

  32. aww Janet, thanks! :D
    i don't know what to say.
    (you might see more of pics with heavy falsies and too much lighting in the future. ;p)

    ReplyDelete
  33. thank you.
    yeah, i think this looks is only good for special occasions. holiday parties..or halloween. ;P

    they were indeed competitors in the beginning but EL took department store with GWP marketing whereas Revlon went on with drugstore and rep sales. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. yes, they are. on the back it says made in indonesia as well but i don't know which brand made these since there is no brand name marked. :)
    the revlon estee lauder rivalry thing happened a long time ago. maybe beginning of american cosmetics history? lol
    i came across this article a long time ago. :)

  39. Yay! I love the lashes on you!! ^^ I really like this lip colour, I have a similar shade but I tend not to wear reds too often. It definitely suits you though.

    ReplyDelete
  40. thank you, Feelo :D
    i think i've worn this red out just once or so. other times it was all for playing inside.
    i'd like to try this for a party or something in the future, though. :)
