For glossy red lips ~ Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Cherries in the Glow

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Cherries in the Glow

Whenever I am at Shoppers Stop, Lifestyle or Health and Glow I always feel so tempted to buy Revlon products. But Revlon prices are too high for what is essentially a drugstore brand. A couple of months back I had an hour to go before boarding and there was this Revlon counter at the airport and no SA. I went crazy swatching everything.  It was so much fun. I loved the eyeshadow quad. Almost all of the quads had very pretty colors. But I held back because of the price ~ Arnd 600-700.

I bought a couple of Super Lustrous lipglosses a year back. Cherries in the glow was one of them and it is really really pretty. This type of muted red color is one of my favorite colors for lip products. This kinda looks like the Nivea Lip balm in strawberry. This color instantly brightens up my face.

Price? Rs 400 approximately

Swatch Of Revlon Lip gloss in Cherries in the Glow

The Good?

I absolutely love the color. This is a very wearable red color. It looks quite red in the tube but on lips looks like a  reddish tint.

I like the texture of the Revlon Super lustrous gloss . Its just a little bit sticky and thick. So it lasts for a decent amount of time.

I love that this color doesn’t have any shimmer to it. I can wear it to office without worrying if the sparkles are too much.

I like the packaging and the doe foot applicator is of very good quality.

This doesn’t dry out my lips at all. In fact my lips feel quite nice and smooth when I put this on.

The Not So Good?

My biggest pet peeve is the smell. It smells exactly like cough syrup and this is the only reason I don’t reach for this often. I usually keep this out in my makeup container on my dresser but everytime I feel like putting this gloss on , I think about the smell and get totally put off. The smell disappears after a few minutes though.

Makeup-Mantra Rating? 8/10

This is a really nice lipgloss both for the color as well as the texture. I really wish it didn’t have this cough syrup scent else I would be reaching for this very often. If you don’t mind the cough syrup smell for the first few minutes I am sure you will like the lip gloss too. The color is really pretty.

Have you tried the Revlon Super Lustrous lipglosses? What do you think?


  1. the color is pretty . I have seen lot of rave reviews for this shade :)

  2. Hey Palak..yup the color is really really pretty.. i wish MAC comes up with a similar shade..i love the formula of MAC lipglasses

  3. Despite being a huge Revlon fan, I have never tried their lipglosses! I need to remedy that. Right now I am loving NYX and Smashbox glosses. My favorite Smashbox gloss is 35MM.

  4. I love this particular lip gloss! :D

  5. @Chris: You shud try the Super Lustrous lipglosses..They have very good reviews on Makeupalley:)

    @Tanveer: The color is soo pretty, isn't it? :)

  6. I just hauled Crystal Lilac, Pink ice, Strawberry, Peony & Hot Pink lip glosses from Revlon Colorburst Range. If I had seen this before I'd have got this instead! Though Strawberry comes a lot closer to this shade I guess...
