Swatch, FOTD - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Red Lacquer

A small package was waiting for me a couple nights ago when I came home after another brutal work day.
First I thought it was weird since I have not ordered anything recently.
Turns out it was a Super Lustrous lipstick sent from Revlon enclosed with a small card saying "Use this product to complete your next Expression Experiment Challenge.".

I did participated in the Revlon look challenge a few times before, but I have no idea how they found out where to send it.
(I guess I have disclosed my address while I was using the FaceBook app. I don't have much complaint since it is a lipstick not a bomb sent to me.)


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Red Lacquer


This is a part of the Shanghai Collection 2012 Fall by Gucci Westman, so it is a bit late to get my hands on this.
It is a freebie so again, I have no complaint! ;)

Red Lacquer is a bright orange red and categorized in the pearl range.


It is very sheer and balmy compared to other Super Lustrous lipsticks I have tried.
It is clearly a warm toned red but it has some pink undertone as well.
The shimmer (pearl) is not very visible.


One coat

Two coats

As you see in the lip swatch pics, it is very easy to control the color intensity.
It is a wearable and cheerful red which is perfect for daytime wear.
(In the Ad, Emma is supposedly wearing this shade, but I think it is quite misleading. This color is way warmer and sheerer than the color you see on her.)


On the card, it also says "Step out of your comfort zone and try exciting new looks".
This is right on especially for me since I am kinda afraid of wearing lipsticks with warmer undertone like this.
However, I was pleasantly surprised cause it is very easy to wear without having to look too much (this is the usual issue I have with red lipsticks).


Here are a couple of FOTDs with Red Lacquer.
(To think about it, the name is a little misleading as well. )



(I have realized I abuse this angle. Oh, well..)



Have you tried this particular shade from the Revlon Super Lustrous range?
What is your out-of-comfort-zone lipstick color?


(Thanks, Revlon!)

    ReplyDelete

  15. This is such a lovely red on you! It's soft somehow which suits your skin tone so well :). I love it with two layers, perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  16. thank you, Teri :)
    this is a bright color but has some pink thrown in. a sheer version of revlon Fire & Ice, i think.

    ReplyDelete
  17. mmm. This is very very pretty. Your comment about lipstick vs bomb was really funny to me.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  27. wow the color is so bright and pretty!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I haven't tried this shade but your hair! Have you curled it? It looks amazing. I think, even if it's warm it suits you very well :) I really had to laugh at the first part of your post, was kinda funny to read the 'ok, they sent it to me ... facebook app ... address' thing :D In the last picture, you remind me of those beautiful women in a vintage ad. Your blush seems to be just perfect for this look! Adorable :) And I love that angle <3

  29. hi Claire! thank you so much. you're too sweet. ^-^
    honestly i don't do much about my hair..it is naturally a little curly and looks curlier right after shampoo then it calms down after a couple hours so people think i have straight hair. weird but very convenient for me. lolz.
    i feel i need to do a little more for my hair since the texture changes as i am getting older.

    i appreciate your kind comment. yours makes "the compliment" of the week! ^-^

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha that's too funny & kind of bizarre they just knew your address. I'm surprised by how non-visible the pearl is, which to me is a good thing. Pretty classic shade

    ReplyDelete
  31. thank you, Catherine!
    there must have been a fine prints when i checked the "i agree" box using the app.
    on the other hand, it is about time since i've bought tons of revlon lippies..;p

    Very pretty! I would have to say the purple lip tar I own. It's lovely but a bit crazy for every day!

    ReplyDelete

    I love their Super Lustrous lipsticks, but I have only tried the creme formulas. That is a beautiful color on you!

    ReplyDelete
  41. thank you!
    i was surprised cause all the other colors i've tried (especially the cremes) are way more pigmented. ;)
    i am actually glad this is sheer, though.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It's a gorgeous colour !

    ReplyDelete
  43. that is such a pleasant surprise..and i agree at least it wasn't a bomb..love the red..looks great on you!:)

    ReplyDelete
  44. hehe..i get tons of mystery mails but i don't know why i felt a little violated(?) by this. silly me, right?
    thanks, Debi!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Looks nice. :) Kind of reminds a tinted lip balm ..? But really cute shade. :)

    Satu
    Indie by heart

    ReplyDelete
  46. thanks, Satu!
    it is a bit more pigmented than a tinted lip balm but pretty sheer. lasting power is so so, though. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I was surprised to see how sheer this is because (as you said) the name suggests it'd be pretty opaque, right?

    ReplyDelete
  48. hi Sarah!!!!
    good to hear from you. i just saw your beautiful baby's pic on your FB page.
    congratulations!!!!!!!
    (i wanted to comment but my FB page is just a page, it didn't allow me.)

    ReplyDelete
  49. It is sheerer than I expected, but very pretty! I really want to see you with a saturated, warm red lip, Lena! I think it would look GORGEOUS with your complexion and flawless skin :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. i was totally surprised cause i was expecting super pigmented color. ;)
    and i appreciate your encouragement! usually i look scary(?) when i wear such colors but i am liking warmer colors more and more nowadays.
    i will try the new look and do a post titled "thanks to Larie...." ^-^

    have a nice weekend! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  51. It looks good on you! This colour looks like Cyndi from MAC which I'm looking for its good replacement because it's one of limited edition. I will check if my local drugstore have one XD

    ReplyDelete
  52. thank you!
    and i am so glad you mentioned the resemblance cause i wanted to get Cyndi!
    i have a dupe from e.l.f. but i think this would be close as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh I LOVE this color, especially on you! o: It looks like it builds nicely~

    ReplyDelete
  54. thank you, JunJun!
    i agree with you. it builds very nicely without looking blotchy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Lovely lovely Lena! I havnt seen you wear a shade badly, ever. This is beautiful on you. Glad it wasn't a bomb either, haha

    ReplyDelete
  56. thank you so much, Taylor! :)
    i was happy to get a new lipstick but at the same time i felt a little weird about it? lolz
    i will experiment warmer colors more in the future. thanks for the encouragement!
