So I've been dying to find the new Spring 2014 Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos and for that reason I've been stalking Walgreens periodically but with no luck. Meanwhile, while I was browsing through the store, I did spot the Vintage Super Lustrous Collection. I decided to pick just two of them. They were also on BOGO at the time.
Revlon decided to bring back 5 discontinued iconic shades but only for a limited time and perhaps quantity as well. I only saw 2 lipsticks per shade on the display so if you are interested in any of them, get them before they're gone. On the flip side, they are probably not the most unique lip colors out there so even if you can't find them, don't be sad I'm sure there are dupes for them.
- Considering that they are limited edition, it would have been cooler if they came in a limited edition packaging but nope, they look no different than any other Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks.
- .15 oz or 4.2 g
- Snow Peach, originally launched in 1956, check out the video below. How ironic that the commercial is in black an white for such a bright and colorful shade. I think it would have been cool if they also re-released the same packaging too, which to me looks like a million bucks on the video.
- It's a bright peachy pink with a cream finish. It doesn't look that bright on the picture but when I saw it on myself in natural daylight, it certainly was. The color payoff was good but I noticed that the formula tends to cling and highlight dry areas. It feels creamy and is a bit hydrating but it doesn't look as smooth on the lips if your lips are dry and flaky. I get and average of about 4 hours of wear.
- Icy Violet, released in 1946, is a mauvy purple-ish brown with a frosty finish. In spite of the frostiness of this lipstick I find this color quite pretty and wearable as well. It has a fairly good color pay off but you'd have to layer it a couple times in order to intensify the color. The formula feels creamy, buttery, and slightly moisturizing. The color last about 4 hours on me.
The Super Lustrous line is one of my favorite drugstore lipsticks and although the formula slightly varies from one color to another I found these two creamy and buttery in texture. They also wear comfortably and feel somewhat hydrating for for up to 4 hours. I also love the fact that these lipsticks are unscented.
