Revlon Super Lustrous Shine Lipstick in Peach Parfait

Last summer, it seemed that Revlon was running out of juice. Instead of releasing another one of those tacky "Love is On" collections, they brought back several popular lip butter shades. This time, in the form of Super Lustrous Shine. It was a good news for me since not only I love most of the shades created during the Gucci Westman reign, Super Lustrous Shine also seems like a very promising formula.  
I bought Peach Parfait when it was on sale for 3 bucks. 
The color is a muted raspberry pink infused with a generous mist of gold shimmer, there is so much gold that it pulls the overall color into a warm peach. 
Peach Parfait Super Lustrous Shine and Peach Parfait Lip Butter (my review) As you can see, while the colors are more or less similar, the lip butter version has a oilier, glossier finish that's also more see through and of course, how can you overlook those chunky gold glitter? Peach Parfait in both formula are lovely but the lip butter is more fun (and have better packaging). 
Peach Parfait applies evenly and feels rather smooth and comfortable, it's not an actively quenching formula that you should count on during snowpocalypse (that's what high end Japanese lines are for) but it should be easy to slap on whenever I want some color. It's a nice one for three dollars but you are not missing a whole lot even if you don't buy it. 

For people who love the Peach Parfait lip butter, don't be sad that it was discontinued (because it never was, like many of the popular lip butters). Now it's just 30 (Nude for light skintone) in the Almay butter lipstick range. It seems like I am the only person who insist that they are the same thing. Too many of the shades just look near identical. They might have tweaked some of the more slippery formula once they donated that bunch to Almay but then again most cream products are more solidified when new/used during winter.

  1. Oh! I like Nude in light-medium but light looks too light for me. It looks nice on you, maybe I need to get it.

    1. I actually wore that (Almay 70) yesterday. While I am convinced it's Pink Truffle, I am not sure if they tweaked the formula or not (to make it less slippy) ...Now it's so cold that even my back up Tutti Frutti (this shade is gone for good) seems balmier and more even.

      Almay's naming is actually quite random, a lot of those for light skintone shades don't require a pale skintone to show up well. I think they are just trying to fit the whole Revlon palette into Almays (color coordinated nonsense) naming convention.

  2. The name of Peach Parfait is much more intriguing than the actual color o_O I think I actually have the lip butter! If I can find it.
    I stopped buying Almay cos I feel like it's Revlon's less good sibling

    1. Now you have mentioned it, the lip butters do have great names...Almay gets all the hand me down. Revlon think that it can save Almay by donating a bunch of products but without coming up good products their own, now they have two suffering brands...

  3. I'm over Revlon now that I discovered Lancome. I sound really snobby but I find Revlon lipsticks to be really slippery, waxy and sheer unless it's a creme finish. I'm a total Lancôme fanatic these days. And get this, Revlon recently acquired Elizabeth Arden so that makes it 3 suffering brands.
