Revlon Super Lustrous in Kiss Me Coral: Review & Swatches

I've always really like the Revlon Super Lustrous line of glosses (and I guess it's too late to review the old ones now that all but one color is discontinued). So today I bring you one from the new revamped line in the color Kiss Me Coral. I figured I'll start off with one color to make sure it's the same great formula as the original.

To continue reading the review and see swatches, click the link below.

Now as packaging goes, the new one comes in a round tube that's longer, with the same black cap and gold ring around the tube. I personally prefer the older version since it's smaller (easier to carry around), and had a more unique/fashionable square tube. I guess Revlon felt the need to revamp the shape of the tube so as not to get it confused with the old. The wand is a doe foot applicator, which is the same as before.
Formula wise it's the same as the old, thank the makeup gods. I would have been rather depressed if they messed with it. For those of you who never had a chance to try the older version (shame on you), the formula of this gloss is a little on the thicker/tackier side, but not in an uncomfortable way. It stays on the lips nicely for a more extended period of time (2-3 hours) for a gloss, while giving a nice high level of shine. It's comfortable on the lips even though it's not moisturizing per se. It does make my lips feel better once applied.


Kiss Me Coral is a coral-y red shade with micro glitter in it. It's a sheer gloss that imparts a hint of coral on the lips with beautiful sparkling shimmer that catches the light. 

Lip swatch is Kiss Me Coral on its own. There is some settling in lip lines, but nothing overly noticeable unless you're up close and personal as in the picture below.

Bottom Line: If you never got the chance to try the old version (or even if you have), based on this color it's worth trying out the revamped line of the Super Lustrous glosses. It's comfortable to wear, and gives a great shine. Just keep in mind that the new colors tend to be of a more sheer variety, and may not be the opaque colors you're used to from the past.
