Happy Monday to you! I just wanted to do a little post on the lipsticks I was able to find from the limited edition "vintage" collection from Revlon. Five Super Lustrous lipsticks from the good old days were recently re-released, and I found mine in a special display in Ulta. I haven't found any links to buy these online, but Nouveau Cheap has a great post on all 5 colors and where people have been finding the displays. The colors I found were Jungle Peach and Fifth Ave Red.
Left: Jungle Peach, Right: Fifth Ave Red
Both of these are creamy formulas with no shimmer. Jungle Peach is pretty on its own (which is the way I'm wearing it in this picture), but I like it even more with a slightly deeper peach or neutral lip liner on the outer part of my lips. Something about that method makes it even more wearable. I find Fifth Ave Red to be particularly striking. It's an interesting red that's not incredibly bright, but just really rosy and gorgeous. I actually included that red in my recent round-up of lipsticks that I'm loving right now. If you haven't seen that video yet, here you go!
Have you gotten your hands on any of these vintage Super Lustrous lipsticks? If so, what shades would you recommend? By the way, I don't find these to be incredibly long-wearing, but the red will leave a bit of a stain on my lips once the shine wears off. Such a pretty color... I'm sad that it's only back for a limited time! Anyway, thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day! :)
- Found out that the station I used to work at was evacuated this morning due to a suspicious package! How strange! Sounds like it didn't turn out to be anything serious, but it's always interesting when the news becomes the news.
- My March Madness bracket is busted! I had Wichita State going all the way... and of course Kentucky took them down over the weekend.
- In more lip product news... another new lip product is the topic of today's Beauty Broadcast Express review! Look for it at 5pm CST at youtube.com/beautybroadcastx.
- Important question for fellow Jelly Belly jellybean lovers: What is your FAVORITE flavor? If you had to pick just one favorite, what would it be? Mine has got to be toasted marshmallow. Pear and Watermelon are a close second.
