Silky. Sexy. Brilliant. This glossy formula by Revlon combines sheer color and intense moisture with light-reflecting spheres to create amazing shine.
Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lip Gloss line contains over a dozen shades that you can find at your local drugstore. I currently have 7 of them in my collection, which you can see photos and swatches of here.
This review is specifically for the shade Pink Whisper–a pale pink with silver micro-shimmer.
Revlon Super Lustrous glosses come in clear, plastic, rectangular tubes. They have fairly small, doe-foot applicators. The name of the color is on the bottom of the tube in very tiny font. My only complaint is that I wish the name were printed more noticeably.
Pink Whisper is a light pink color with a ton of very tiny silver shimmer. You get a strong, frosty, silver sheen to the lips and the underlying pink color will lighten most people’s lip color. I think this color would work especially well paired with a dark smokey eye.
The color does emphasize lip lines every-so slightly, but you honestly cannot see this effect unless you’re up close and looking for it.
The formula is fairly thin and has no stickiness. It is emollient and makes the lips feel soft and smooth. I also don’t smell a strong scent, but the gloss technically has a vanilla-y fragrance in it. Pink Whisper lasts an average of 2.5 hours on my lips before I want to re-apply.
This gloss also has an SPF rating of 15 and contains Octinoxate to provide your lips some sun protection. Unfortunately, Octinoxate primarily protects against UVB rays, and there are no other active ingredients in the gloss to protect against UVA rays.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
This gloss glides onto the lips without skipping or needing to tug. The small doe-foot applicator also makes it easy to apply the gloss precisely.
For around $7.00 you get 0.2 fl oz (5.9 ml) of gloss. This is just about the same price-point and size as Rimmel’s Moisture Renew Cream Lipglosses and, in general, is an average price and size for drugstore lipglosses.
