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.
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?
