I bought this with 'Rose Velvet' in a BOGOF sale at my local drugstore.
This is a light pinkish mauve creme lipstick from Revlon's renowned Super Lustrous line. It went on with a creme finish, and can be blotted to look matte. The colour is rich and pigmented, and lasts for a long time for a lipstick that does not make longevity claims.
I would repurchase a lighter version of this colour in the Revlon's Super Lustrous range when I run out.
I have ticked that I would not rebuy because I didn't buy it in the first place. I was given a set of 4 revlon lippies for christmas, unfortunately all in colours that aren't quite right for me. However I can get away with this colour and it makes a pretty decent low level sophisticated look with winter clothes. On my warm toned light olive skin it shows up as a fairly dark, almost purple, mauve, which needs to be blotted to a matt finish to work well. I have given it a high rating because it has all the usual good qualities of the Revlon Superlustrous line - good staying power, no turning a funny shade and no fragrance.
LOVE this color! It gives my non-pigmented lips just enough color to look naturally pigmented. Great lipcolor for day! I'm a big fan of Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks. I have too many to count. This one is definitely one of my top three favorites. The color is matte but very moisturizing. Doesn't look "dead" on the lips. If you weren't blessed with naturally pigmented lips and want a very natural look this color is a winner!
I bought this in 2008 as an attempt at a MLBB shade. Mauve is right. It is a color I can wear when I feel like "looking like I have lipstick on" because it is obvious you do--nothing natural about this. Nudes seem too brown on me, so I went for one with more pinky tones without too much red. I have to wear this in the winter moreso than the summer. I guess it is a good color, but I don't rave about it. I am still on the fence. It DOES have great staying power though, and that is what I love about Revlon lipsticks. No shimmer to this one, either. Just solid, opaque mauve-pink color that stays!
This shows up on me as a darker shade of pink. It has a very creamy finish and I like that it has no pearl or glitter to it. The price is a little steep so I wait for the two for one deals at CVS. Another bonus is the top is see through so you're able to inspect the shade without having to rely on dirty testers.
This is a pinky mauve with a slight hint of purple and it's very flattering for some reason on my NW?C20 skin. I had no idea I'd love it this much but I do. It's a tiny step above a pink or neutral pink lip and it's noticeable in a good way :)
Smooth and creamy, glides right on with a nice color payoff. While pigmentation is great, the color itself is a bit too pink for a true mauve. I purchased this lipstick because of its name, LOL - I'm a sucker!
Nice, creamy mauve color, not too dark, more on the pink side--but this is not as special or complex as some of their other Super Lustrous shades. If Rose Velvet is too brown for you, try this!
