Holy grail. That's all I can say. Holy grail.
This lipstick is WONDERFUL!!! It's young, bright, and fun, and it looks great on a wide range of skin tones. This is a tried and true lipstick. I remember when my mother was wearing it back in the '90s and had just started to become interested in makeup. This is my favorite red lipcolor, and I go back to it time after time. I'm very partial to product lines carried at Sephora, and I have no problem paying at least $30 for a tube of lipstick. However, this is the best red I have ever found, and it was only $5 at Target! It's a win-win in my book!!!!!
I am a sucker for red lipstick. Especially retro reds. And this one was a must try, I have recently been pleased with the ColorBurst lipsticks, so I figured it was worth giving the Super Lustrous another shot.
I didn't get the super awesome vintage package when they first brought this color back (And have been scouring ebay for them). That didn't sway me from going for the color anyway. I love the clear cap - makes it super easy to see what color you are grabbing.
The color itself (on me) does have some pink tones to it - I was a little worried as I look awful in pink toned lipsticks. But when applied, it comes off as a bright gorgeous red. I love that it is a repro of the iconic 1950s red (did I mention I love red retro lipstick?). It is really moisturizing, though I always start my beauty routine off with lip balm to get my lips ready for lipstick. The formula itself seems to last a good amount of time - not at all what I was expecting.
It's worth a shot to try, and I will be buying again - and hopefully snagging the vintage case.
This lipstick is really bright. It almost glows. I felt like I couldn't stop staring at my lips when I had on this color. It made them look really luscious. Somehow it seems to work with my skin tone. I line my lips and fill them in with MAC cherry lipliner, so it makes the lipstick a little darker. The overall effect is kind of like a bright cherry color, but it's not overly cool. It's a little confusing. I love that All Fired Up matches with it. I wore this on my wedding day. My photos came out great because of it.
I love this shade of red. I am NC 42 and this works great with my complexion. I don't think it is that bright, probably because I have a darker skin tone. The wearing power is standard but its best quality is the vibrant coral red shade. I top it off with gloss (right now mac sonoran rain) and I am good to go. If you like red's this is a necessity, as someone else mentioned it has been around for over 50 yrs, so obviously its a classic for a reason.
A friend recommended me to Fire and Ice after I described to her the shade of red that I wanted was "...a mixture of coral and deep reds..." ; Fire and Ice was just that. Like the name suggests (and which immediately takes me back to a Robert Frost poem I read in junior high), I have found that Fire & Ice looks completely different in different lighting situations. Usually in daylight, it appears to be very blue-ish almost deep redish burgundy (Ice). In florescent lighting, it appears as the bright and bold red that reminds me of the lipcolor the women of the tv show Twin Peaks wore (Fire). I have found that it's best to apply it then delicately blot your lips with a tissue and lightly reapply. This lipstick also stains very nicely. continued >>
This shade has been around for about 50 years. Tells you what a popular red it is. I apply it lightly and then dab a tiny bit of opal gloss over it to soften it more.
I love this color, it's fantastic. It's such a bright, rich red! I have a hard time finding red lipsticks that go with my fair skin, & this does the trick. continued >>
This is my all time favorite lipstick :)
This is a very cool toned, blue based red. It is not neutral so be aware. Though I love the color in the tube and the formula is fantastic, applies very smoothly and evenly, this color looks dreadful on me. I am warm-neutral and this makes me look like a clown, literally. The only way I'd wear this is for a costume party as a clown or I could even see it working as a Lucille Ball costume. I've tried multiple times to make this color work for me, but it is not the intensity that makes me unwearable, it's just the undertones in it that make it ugly on my skin tone. I love Revlon REALLY RED much much more for a true glamorous red color, or KISS ME CORAL for a fun coral red. Those apply just as dreamily as this one but the colors are much more flattering. These are so cheap though so no big deal if it doesn't work for you, but I'd try something else first if you have neutral to warm undertones.
