Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Peach Petal

I am not sure what kind of flower it is, at least the color of the petals give a clear indication of how this gloss will turn out: White.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Peach Petal is the fifth shade(now I have all five!) I have got from their Day Dreamer collection from last summer. I am not normally the person who go crazy over nude lipstick/glosses by from what I have tried from Revlon, I was convinced that the smooth, creamy and shimmer-free formula would be a nice way to start experiment with the new colors. 
As you can see, peach petal is a very pale (almost the same shade as my skin) peach off white, it's difficult to tell if it's pink-base or more beige as there is so much white in it. I would put my guess on the pink side since it doesn't look off with my normally-cool-toned skin.  
 Peach Petal by itself might look like it's stuck between by lip lines but the truth is that the light pigments is simply floating on top my pigmented lips. Give it a few minutes and it will even/smooth out. Anyway, the shade (I wanted to call it a lip color white-out as it's almost bring my lips to the same color of the rest of my face) does make me look sick so I don't plan to wear it alone anytime soon.
Revlon Peach Petal with Sally Hansen color comfort lipstick in Perfect Pink. The pale nude peach is a perfect base (used it before lipstick gives a better blend at the end) if you want to lighten up any lip color.

Overall: It's not a shade I enjoy wearing but it can be so handy (you know, white goes with everything), especially you want a lighter/creamier version of your bold lipsticks.

  1. I actually like how creamy this is. It's odd in a good way :).

  2. The color looks so lovely. It looks really good on you, too. Is it sticky?

    The texture of this is the same as other Revlon super lustrous glosses (I have reviewed quite a few of those so I try not to bring up anything repetitive): gel-cream texture that's malleable an not too sticky, considering the wear time and pigmentation.

  4. I haven't tried any Revlon glosses, but I'm pretty sure the flowers are on a Chinese tallow tree. You live in Texas, right? I live in Houston and these are common invasive trees in Houston, coastal Texas, and other coastal parts of the southern US, especially Georgia.
    I really enjoy your blog, by the way, and your photos are great!

    Thanks! I am glad that people enjoy those unrelated pictures :)

    As for the white flowers,these are actually from a pretty large(I had to use full zoom for that) self-supporting (not sure how you call those) tree and the leaves, which are all out by now, doesn't look like the google search results for Chinese tallow.

    Anyway, I live in central Texas (rather dry and not quite coastal) so the plants here might be slightly different from more humid areas.It's still nice to learn about other plants though.
