Super lustrous is my HG lipgloss formula. Coral Reef is a gorgeous colour, so flattering and brightens your whole face.
This color looks gorgous on warm skin tones. I'm nc25-30 with yellow undertones and this has got to be my favorite lipgloss ever! The last picture is the most accurate as far as the actual shade of the color is. A peach salmon color. Love it:) Will repurchase when I run out. Another similar dupe but lipstick form is revlons coralberry, which I believe is a creme, and I also own. Only cons, drys lips and constantly have to reapply after couple hours of wear.
I have very fair skin and would normally be intimidated by such a bright orange color. However this gloss has exceeded my expectations! It looks great on my skin tone, the gloss applies evenly, and I can wear it alone or with lipstick underneath. (revlon
colorburst lipstick in peach looks amazing paired w/ this gloss!!) It sort of brightens up my whole complexion. I love it in spring/summer, and even into fall with a dark nude/spice lipliner buffed underneath. This was my first Revlon super lustrous lipgloss purchase and I can't wait to try more shades! Definately would purchase again.
I am not a fan of lip glosses because i always find them heavy and sticky (tried several juicy tubes and others from Clarins or EA). I have read wonderful reviews about the SL line here on MUA, especially for this shade so I could not stop myself from picking up one when I saw it on sale at my local drug store.
In the tube, it is a very creamy coral color, it is on the orange side but still looks lovely. I was a bit concerned that it might be too orange on my lips. However, when I apply it evenly across my lips, it becomes a light pink color which complement my skin tone really well. The formula is creamy but not too heavy. it is still a bit sticky though. My hair got stuck with the blowing wind. It gives shine but no shimmer. The gloss enhances my own lip color and adds a subtle shine to my lips.
I also love the packaging. It looks sleek and sturdy. It can be easily carried around and I believe it can last quite some time. I do need to reapply one or two times during the day but everything considered, this is a very nice lip gloss. I am glad that I picked it up.
This lipgloss is so pretty! You can control how much you put on, if you put a little, it looks like a natural pink, if you put on more,it looks peachier. The consistency is creamy,milky, and pigmented. In the bottle it looks like a bright bold peach, but is different when you put it on. I have tan-olive skin and i put this on, then lightly blot it with a tissue, and its like a mild lip stain, it leaves your lips soft and it feels smooth and not sticky! Also after this fades away, it leaves lips moisturized. The price was around $5. Which i would expect a little less for drugstore lipgloss. I took off a lippie because this gloss sinks into every little crack and loose skin on your lips. Make sure to wear chapstick before and it should be less of a problem. Also i detect a classic light vanilla smell in most lip products. Overall im likely to buy this again.
This is one might-ay fiiine lipgloss! I didn't know if I would like it at first because when I tried it out at the drugstore my face was a teensy bit yellow from this turmeric mask I did (yes, I went out in public with a pretty noticeable yellow stain on my face---the horror!) And because coral reef isn't an orange-coral (instead, it's a pink-coral) it looked a bit off. I went home and didn't particularly like it until seven months (!) later when my skin was paler and had less issues (damn you, acne, your soul shall perish in the fire pits of the underworld) it looked really nice. The milkiness of the gloss helped to enhance milky skin, if that made any sense. Earlier when I had shitty skin, the milkiness of the gloss just made my skin look worse. ALSO, I have this NYX round lipstick in Very Berry, it's a really dark, special-occasions-only type lipstick that's like, halfway between dark berry and black and I wanted to make it more everyday-wearable so I tried blotting and then layering it with this lipgloss and it came out as this gorgeous rose-fuschia-pinky-brown colour. INSANE. OH and the packaging is great! Really simple and classy and the square shape makes it easy to open, unlike the stupid MAC lipglasses which are so slippery and round and annoying.
i bought this because i love another one of revlon's super lustrous glosses, pink pop, so i thought why not? the color is gorgeous, and i can't wait to wear it for spring. it's a nice coral with some pink in it. it's pretty pigmented actually, which is good, because i hate lip glosses that just give me a tint of color. lots of people don't like the smell, but it doesn't bother me much. i can't smell it while wearing it.
however, the formula on this one seemed a lot different than the one for pink pop. coral reef was a lot stickier than pink pop, for one. which i don't mind too much, as it helps the gloss last longer (and this gloss lasts for a looong time without fading). it also felt a bit...stiffer? it didn't glide onto my lips very easily. so that was weird.
overall, it's a nice gloss, but not as good as pink pop from the same line.
I wouldn't repurchase this particular shade Coral reef. I was NC42 while I was using this one and it just didn't work out great. It didn't show up too much and I have quite rosy lips from the start. It has a nice creamy texture, but smell is so strong in transfers into the mouth, a taste I have very difficult to ignore. (strong medical taste).
It's not the worst lipgloss I tried.. so with that being said I would not refuse to try the other shades. I think this shade just didn't suit me.
The packaging looks very classy, and the fact that the lid snaps into place when you twist it shut lets me know that it's not going to leak all over my purse. The colour is absolutely beautiful :D the perfect coral in my opinion. Personally, I think it's a better choice as a summer color but, throwing it on in the winter makes me feel like it's summer :) You have to make sure that your lips are well exfoliated before putting this on because any bumps will show. My ONLY problem with this product is its rating on the EWG Skin Deep website, it has a lot of chemicals in it which is the only reason that I would be hesitant to re-purchase.
Although I love the consistency of this gloss and have other colors, this color looks horrible on me! I should have known better, coral colors aren't me!
