Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick: The Legacy Collection (Review/Photos/Swatches)

NOTE: Remember if you have a question about these, use the button in the main menu to post it and I’ll answer you there!

Recently Revlon announced the return of five iconic Super Lustrous shades of lipstick - spanning six decades (albeit leaving out two hehe) and available only for a limited time. I love the concept behind the collection, especially coming from a company that’s been around as long as Revlon has, so naturally I had to pick all of them up!

Icy Violet (from 1946) is a mid-tone plum shade with a frost finish (it’s a little lilac and a little rose). This is probably my personal favorite of the bunch but I love plums. The coverage is even but not opaque. If you like colors like Pervette by MAC, check this one out. I wouldn’t call them siblings… but maybe second cousins?

Snow Peach (from 1956) is a bright, amped up, pinky coral with a cream consistency that dries to a creamy satin finish (not glossy but not matte). Remember how I’m always saying you can use lipsticks as cream blushes? This is a contender! It’s beautifully bright!

5th Ave Red (from 1958) is a lovely neutral shade of deep, almost blood, red with the same finish as Snow Peach (Icy Violet and Sandstorm are the only two frosts in this bunch). It has a bit of brown in it so it’s not very loud but it’s not so dark that it’s too vampy either.

Jungle Peach (from 1963) is a pale bright true peach shade with a cream finish. Like a lot of pale shades this one had a tendancy to settle into lip lines a little but the name AND the color just LOOK so 60’s to me, it’s a total keeper. Side note: while you try THIS one as a lovely spring cream blusher I’ll be in the other room watching Annette Funicello in Beach Party, Muscle Beach Party, Bikini Beach and my two personal favorites: How to Stuff a Wild Bikini and Pajama Party!

Sandstorm (from 1999) is the most recent color in the collection and like Icy Violet, it’s another mid-tone frost shade. This one is a richer molten bronze. If you aren’t sure you can pull off colors like this, remember they don’t have to be warn alone. Try laying them over a lip pencil or lipstick (Sandstorm is a perfect compliment to 5th Ave Red… just BTW).

All of the shades - except Jungle Peach - applied evenly and smoothly so I have no complaints there! These are also all scent free with no noticeable taste at all (not that I ate them or anything… *burp*).
