Hello chummies! You might remember my date night FOTD from a few months ago, which is my usual failsafe look. I can’t say the other half and I have been on many dates since although the good news is I wore Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Pink Pout for the first time that night and have worn it relentlessly since – although I do have mixed feelings about it.Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Pink Pout is a very purple-based pink in their much loved matte formula which at first glance you’d assume it would only suit lighter skin tones. BUT after trying MAC Mehr and falling in love with purple-based pinks I decided to plunge further into pink oblivion.
This lipstick applies quite smoothly but not as smoothly as a MAC matte lipstick if you know what I mean? Pre-moisturised lips are a MUST if you’re going to dabble with this little guy. I’d say the texture is quite velvety, although it does feel a little drying. My comfort threshold is quite low so this doesn’t bother me too much.
Wear time is average, I think I usually get 3 or 4 hours before I need to reapply, but you do get cracks showing if you look closely enough. Again, I’m not exactly a perfectionist so that isn’t going to keep me up at night. It doesn’t fade awkwardly which is probably the main thing?I really love the colour of Pink Pout, although the name is super naff. I’m absolutely willing to overlook the slight dryness for the way it brightens up my face. This colour would be adorable and dolly-like on pale skins but if you’ve got darker skin, it looks unexpectedly sexy in my humble opinion – well worth a try.
One last thing, the packaging seems to have changed slightly, I’m not sure if mine is the new or old version but the Boots and Superdrug websites show this lipstick with a brushed silver colour barrel. If you engage your eyeballs you’ll see mine is shiny gold which I prefer, but it’s the same product either way – I hope that’s cleared up any confusion!
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink Pout is available at Boots for £7.49.
