Super Lustrous Lipsticks are fantastic. Whether you choose a creamy or frost (shimmer) finish, you get a moderately creamy lipstick that feels comfortable without being too slick or greasy and has better-than-average staying power. This is a very good creamy lipstick with a staggering range of shades. If you can’t find a color you like, perhaps lipstick just isn’t for you!

It may surprise some of you to know that Revlon has been around since 1932, when the company launched a unique nail polish that used pigments instead of dyes. Lipsticks followed years later, and then a full line of cosmetics, which is how we know Revlon today. Although the company has had its continual share of ups and downs over the years (largely due to out-of-control debt coupled with aggressive spending), the line has recently made numerous improvements, especially in the realms of foundations, powders, eyeshadows, and mascaras. It is quite a feat that Revlon products earned more Paula's Pick ratings per category than any other drugstore line reviewed. If their goal was to close the competitive gap between themselves and L'Oreal, for the most part they have succeeded. Revlon definitely has the edge for foundations with reliable sunscreens. But despite Revlon's attempt to improve their mascara range, L'Oreal remains the clear winner (as well as L'Oreal-owned Maybelline New York).

Revlon's vast selection of makeup is divided into three main brands: Age Defying for the forty-something and older woman concerned about wrinkles, ColorStay for the teen to mid-thirties woman concerned about keeping oily skin in check and making sure her makeup stays put, and PhotoReady for women of all ages. These brands present some outstanding options and include products for all skin types (although the range of skin tones is not as well-represented here as it is by L'Oreal).

An intriguing fact is that the longevity claims for ColorStay are quite accurate: this collection of products really does offer extraordinary staying power. Conversely, Revlon jumped on the works-like-Botox bandwagon with their Age Defying range, going so far as to name their antiwrinkle complex Botafirm. Is there any confusion about what that term is supposed to relate to? Despite the claims, Botafirm won't reduce expression lines or control the muscles that cause them, though the products themselves do have many impressive qualities.

Note:Revlon is categorized as one that tests on animals because their products are sold in China. Although Revlon may not conduct animal testing for their products sold elsewhere, the Chinese government requires imported cosmetics be tested on animals, so foreign companies retailing there must comply. This requirement is why some brand’s state that they don’t test on animals “unless required by law”. Animal rights organizations consider cosmetic companies retailed in China to be brands that test on animals, and so does the Paula’s Choice Research Team.

Suffice it to say, Revlon has more commendable products than ever before, and although they rely heavily on celebrity spokespersons, their best products ably speak for themselves.

    My favorite lipstick
    • I love this line. The classic colors are just that: timeless. For just about any expensive lipstick, you can find a match in Revlon for maybe $5 (these are almost always on sale somewhere close to me). The pearl finish ones have s subtle shimmer while the creme ones have just the right amount of shine to keep them from being flat. They last as long as a lipstick should (I reapply after eating or drinking).

    Great quality lipstick and range of colors
    • What's not to love? Fragrance-free, affordable, good quality, and great color selection. Some of these colors are very comparable to high end brands. This is one of the best lipsticks in the drugstore.

    Why didn't I try this before?
    • I am going to a 1920's party and I wanted a true red lipstick, not too dry but definitely not glossy. I got this in Certainly Red and it is beautiful. Nice blue-red, perfect - it will probably look attractive on most people. It goes on very smoothly but not greasy. Good staying power. You can even make a "stain" by only applying to upper lip and lips together then pressing between a tissue. The price is amazing - this is a really quality lip product. And it doesn't have a scent - another bonus. I have a number of Revlon lip butters (another winner), but they are lightweight. For evening, nothing beats a true red lip!

    Great range of reds!
    • If you're looking for a red lipstick, Revlon has the best selection of reds available at the drugstore, from orange-reds to blue-reds to pink-reds. (Love That Red, by the way, is a very close match for Make Up For Ever's Moulin Rouge at a fraction of the cost!)
