Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 477 Black Cherry (Creme)



 




 Remember my Oxblood Nail Polish post when I said I might have a lipstick to match? Well this is the lipstick but I have to say that it's slightly more purple than I imagined and I don't think it's for me.

I have seen quite a few review on this lipstick and I have previously bought quite a few from this range so I figured it would be a pretty safe bet. Especially when my one of my favourites (Pink in the Afternoon) was a creme formulation also. So naturally I was drawn to this when I tried to find a more vampy lipstick for the upcoming winter months. However I just don't like how it looks on me. I think that it's a really lovely colour and a great formulation as always, but it makes me look like I have black lips from far away and it does not compliment my features at all.

I didn't have a lip liner to go with this lipstick so it was pretty challenging to get a neat edge by just using the lipstick itself and no lip brush. Then again, I feel that I did a decent enough job for the purposes of the picture.

The lipstick wasn't as matte as I thought it was going to be either. Pink in the Afternoon didn't really have a shine but this one does as you can see from the pictures above. Perhaps it's the lip balm I put on underneath that is seeping through.

Overall its a great lipstick but not the one for me so it will probably be another product to go in my beauty blog sale next time a hold one.

If you have any lipstick recommendations for me, please leave them in the comments below as I am always in the market to try out a new, adventurous colour.
