Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss

Posted in Product Reviews on March 4th, 2009 by Kristen Jason – Comments Off on Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss

Lipgloss is always a fun thing to purchase.  We really liked this one because of its texture.  It’s both moisturizing AND lightweight.  Don’t be scared to go for bold colors; this is a very sheer gloss.  The product looks like you’ll have glitter lips, but when you put it on you can’t really see it, just intense shine.  We applaud Revlon; 10% of all sales of their “Pink Pursuit” shade go to breast cancer research.

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Highlight & Contour Blush

It’s a terrible feeling when you buy the blush that’s the perfect color, only to put it on and look like Miss Havisham from Great Expectations. All blushes are not created equal. If the blush is not finely milled enough, it will just sit on top of your skin and look clownish.

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Highlight and Contour Blush is the best blush we’ve seen for at its price point. As you know Wet n Wild is one of the most affordable cosmetic brands out there, so we didn’t anticipate the high end department store quality of this product. There are 3 shades in each blush triade (4 triades are available), and you can use the coordinating shades to contour and highlight for model cheekbones. We incorporated this product in our quick, no fuss, morning routine by just blending all of the colors together and using it as regular blush. But it’s nice to know that we can also get a sculpted look from the product. 

This blush went on naturally; they really named it “silk finish” with good reason. It’s also long lasting. We recommend this product for blush amateurs just starting out, it’s really hard to mess up with the application. We give this product an A+ and we’re wondering if it would be overkill to buy all the shades…
