Deal of the Day: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick $2.79

 While scanning my makeup aisle in CVS today, I found a great deal.  Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick for $5.79 with $3 back in extra bucks, making it only $2.79!  You also had the option of getting moondrops or something from Maybeline, but I wanted to try something new, so I picked up the Super Lustrous Lipstick in 420, Blushed.
It's a pearl finish and in the category of nudes and browns.  It's definitely that mauvey nude shade, but with a pearlized finished.  Not sure how I feel about the finish yet, but I like the color a lot.
It's more on the sheer side, think of a MAC lustre lipstick, but I like these especially in the warmer months because I don't have to layer so much product on my lips and with the pearl finish, I skip the gloss.
For being sheer, there is a decent amount of pigmentation.  One dislike is the cheap packaging.  It even feels cheap.  Revlon stepped up their game recently with their quilted packaging, so going back and looking at this now, it just doesn't compare.  But, I think with a revamp of packaging, it could be great.  It's not drying at all and feels nice on the lips.  Wear time is around 4 hours I'd say.

Definitely worth the under $3 price tag, so definitely check to see if your CVS is doing this deal.  It was in must weekly ads for CVS.  My store didn't have a sign up next to the lipsticks, so I recommend checking at home first to see which ones qualify.


  1. I have one of these! Different shade though, I'm not the biggest fan of the finish. :)

  2. I love revlon super lustrous lipsticks.....they are my one of my
    drugstore favs! Blushed looks like a gorgeous shade....hopefully i can find it on clearance too. I am a new follower of your blog.
