Hi, I’m back! I’ve been on hiatus from blogging and it took me a month and half to actually write again. I won’t delve on the details but all I can say is, I was all because of work. I missed my blog 😦 I missed writing. And most of all I missed new friends (fellow bloggers,readers,drifters) I met here on the net. But now I’m back, I’m so excited to write again!

On to my Outfit of the Day. My look is Parisian-inspired.

I am a huge lover of anything French. From the movies and books I’ve encountered, I do believe there is something romantic about Paris. I am at awe on how rich French culture is: food, places, films, music and fashion. France is on top of my “places-to-visit” list.

Wearing simple pieces helped channeling my inner Parisian chic. ❤

Where I wore this? On a night out with new friends. 🙂

These girls are so much fun to hang out with. We lived together for a month and I guess we clicked because of similar interests and personality. Plus, they are all nice!

Lipstick of the Day: Revlon Super Lustrous™ Matte Lipstick in 011 Stormy Pink

300

Product Details:

Ultra-creamy saturated lip color that delivers beautiful, lightweight matte color without any dryness, caking or fading.

  • Straight from the Runway shades.
  • Beautifully rich matte color glides effortlessly across lips.
  • Suede-like, cushiony feel and with maximum color impact.
  • Beautifully rich shades from nude to deepest berry.

Made in the USA

drugstore.com

The lipstick comes in a sleek, black tube with a clear ‘window’ on top of the cap where you can see its color as well the shade detail at the bottom of the tube. As for its durability, you can expect it wouldn’t break easily despite how many times you drop the lipstick.

1Mine has a little sticker on the side of the tube with detailed info about the lipstick (ingredients, weight, bar code, etc).

The Revlon lipstick contains 4.2 g and the shade that I have is 011 Stormy pink. The color is kind of a bright baby pink with slight purple undertone which I find it a very lovely shade. It is available in different pretty colors. I like the fact that it doesn’t have a pungent smell (only subtle) as some of the lip products I had.

I find the consistency of the Revlon lipstick quite smooth and it glides on the lips easily. But my problem with it is the product is not very pigmented and I have to reapply quite a few times because the color appears sheer on my lips when applied once or even twice. Also, since it’s a matte lipstick make sure you put on lip balm before you apply it otherwise your lips would appear dry and the creases on it would be visible.

This is how it looks like on my lips. I really like the color despite its sheer pigmentation and the need to apply repeatedly for the desired color.

6Excuse me for how I look, I’m having an amazing bad hair day today. 😀

When the product is smudge, it doesn’t come off that easily plus it would stay put on the lips, although the color would appear faint once smudged. The effect is also the same when you eat or drink. Regarding if it lasts for hours, it doesn’t stay too long and only for about 3 hours, which is already pretty decent for me.

The Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick costs  $7-8 but Drugstore.com sells it 20% off. If you’re also a budget diva like me, you should look online for cheaper deals. If you’re in the Philippines, this can also be bought in any malls or SM Department Stores and Watsons. I got mine from my mom as well as my other high-end lipsticks like the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick.

Verdict

The good

  • durable packaging
  • has great shades to choose from
  • doesn’t have foul chemical smell
  • smooth and matte
  • doesn’t smudge easily
  • decent lasting power
  • cheaper when bought online

The bad

  • can be drying on lips
  • to be applied many times to get the right color
  • expensive to me

Roro’s thoughts

This is my first Revlon lipstick and I kind of like it but just not my favorite one. The shade is gorgeous despite the need to apply a few times to get the color I wanted. And I also have to remember to condition my lips before applying the it. I would love to try the nude shades and the berry ones next time.

I give it three and a half lips just cause I love the color!
