Today I am going to review one of my favorite lipsticks: Revlon's Super Lustrous Creme formula. The color I am reviewing is called "Wine with Everything."
The first thing to note is that this particular lipstick has been around forever (since at least the 1950s, maybe the late 40's too). Thus, wearing this formula automatically makes me feel more glamorous. The shade "Wine with Everything" hasn't been around for nearly as long as some of the other colors, but I find that it is a suitable red for almost any occasion. It's often my go to shade at school. As a side note, the black and gold packaging is also quite lovely, simple yet elegant.
As you can see in the picture above, this creme formula certainly is not matte. It has a slight shine to it which I do enjoy. The lipstick itself is very moisturizing, which gives it an edge in my book. Regarding the color, it is a deeper orange-red. One might not think it would be this color just by hearing the name "Wine with Everything."
Applying the lipstick is very easy, as it goes on very smoothly. I would recommend using a red lip liner, but if you are in a pinch, by no means is it a requirement.
I like the versatility of this lipstick. You can wear less of it and smooth it out so it appears like a lip stain. You can also mattify it by using a napkin and some powder; I like to do this sometimes because I like it when lipstick appears matte without some of the drying effects of a true matte lipstick.
You do have to reapply this lipstick after eating, and it does fade a bit after a few hours. However, the fade is not significant, and one additional coat usually does the trick.
I highly recommend this lipstick if you are looking for something moisturizing but not too shiny. I have this formula in about 10 different shades, all of which I love dearly. For a more cherry red, try the shade "Certainly Red" which was released in 1951. Below I have included a chart with some of the older shades in the collection. Some of the shades no longer exist, but the others are worth checking out.
Completely off topic, but here in Maryland we are being hit with a blizzard this weekend! I hope that everyone on the USA East Coast is staying safe out there! I will be sure to take lots of pictures of the beautiful snow once everything is settled.
Have you tried this lipstick before? What do you think of it? Cheers.
