LIPPIE: More Revlon

Ok, seriously. I'm a horrible person, it's been a few weeks since my last post - which by the way, was completely useless. I don't really have a legit excuse either >_>. 

Anyway, Shoppers Drug Mart routinely holds a sale on Revlon lippies for $3.99. The last sale for this price was probably 2 months ago, and I picked up several new colors that I would like to share with you! I love them all =). 

Clockwise: Black Cherry, Mauvy Night, Smoky Rose, Ginger Rose & Rose Velvet.
   I previously made a post showing you Rose Velvet, so I'm not going to include it in here.
The above is Ginger Rose. GR is a very, very beautiful neutral pink. It's not too cool and it's not too warm. I love pairing this with the CHANEL Glossimer in Pink Pulsion - it creates the most gorgeous brightened pink which isn't garish at all. 
Smoky Rose is a pretty accurate name for this shade. This lipstick is in the Pearl finish (all the other ones shown are Creme), so it imparts a soft silver sheen. It sounds '90s, but it is quite flattering against my skin tone. 
Mauvy Night. What a cute name. If you like MAC Up The Amp but find it too purple, this is a great alternative. It is a more tame version of it's grown up sister. It's not too purple, on my lips it looks great worn alone or topped off with a gloss.
Black Cherry looks like Hell in the tube. It reminds me of the classic CHANEL Rouge Noir lipstick. BC is a deepened red with purple undertones. It is quite dark, and I'm not confident enough to rock this alone but it is great worn as a stain. Swatches below:
L to R: Rose Velvet, Ginger Rose, Smoky Rose, Mauvy Night, Black Cherry.
I love the Super Lustrous line. They are so pigmented and so smooth. The best drugstore lipstick IMO. If you see these on sale, pick one up - you may just find a new favorite! 
I only wish we carried the same shades that are available in the U.S. The Shoppers around where I live carry the same ones, but Wal-Mart has a huge selection. What's up with that? 

Product: Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick - $8.99-10.99 (Lowest price I've seen - $3.99 when on sale at SDM).
