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! :)
