Revlon Reds a Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire and Ice

Another lippie review!

Revlon makes the best reds and the prices are unbeatable (Php450 regular, Php350 sale price).

I have reviewed other 2 reds in the Super Lustrous line click HERE to check Certainly Red and Love that Red.

I wanted a bright red that had a pop and a zing. Fire & Ice was just the right shade. It is a bright red with a slight orange undertone. The texture is 1/4 creamy and 3/4 matte, which is just the right type for reds since you want the color to stay put. This scentless lipstick is my new favorite.

Review: Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Incognito

Make up review of Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in INCOGNITO

Verdict: A creamy nude pink that has staying power and smells good.

I am always on the look-out for that perfect nude lipstick and I find Dior to have the best nude colors. There are many levels of nude that one can wear - between pink-mauve, peach-beige and tan-brown. The best nude lipstick should pick up the warmth and flush of your skin and the natural color of your lips and merging them with your skin's shade. A tad too nude and you risk washing out the color in your complexion.

Dior's Addict Extreme lipstick in Incognito glides on creamy but smooth (balm-like consistency) and smells yummy too. The scent is very subtle and smells like toasted marshmallow (yum!) and the staying power is very good (lasted 4-5 hours). The color is a pinkish neutral nude, leaning towards the nude side with a natural shine that creates a lip-plumping effect.

Dior make-up is available locally at Rustan's Tower in Makati.
