Revlon Limited Edition Vintage Super Lustrous Lipstick


Revlon Limited Edition Vintage Super Lustrous Lipsticks

When I think of lipstick, I think of Revlon. Always have and probably always will. My very first lipsticks were Revlon---probably Coral Vanilla-- a color my mother always wore----and I started playing with them when I was two or three years old. The pretty colors mesmerized me then and now! So it was with great excitement when I saw the Revlon display in my local drugstore announcing colors that had been “brought back” for a special, limited edition release
.
I may be a little but late to the party, but I’ve seen these beauties in the several stores this morning and they are certainly available online. For about $7.99, you can have a little bit of luxury right at your fingertips. The collection consists of five saturated colors and I purchased four of them. Read on for swatches and more pictures!

Jungle Peach (a bit light for my tastes but I’m really liking how it photographs against my skintone! Feels very 1968 to me!)

Each one of these lipsticks feels good on the lips---no stickiness or dryness. Pigment is excellent and the price is right—what more can a lipstick lover ask for?

Find them at your local drugstore or online for about $7.99. Already have them? Love them? Tell me!
