Name: Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pearl Plum
From Revlon’s website:
Moisturizing Shine. Non-sticky Feel.
A silky gloss that boosts hydration and plumps lips with moisture for a colorful glamorous shine.
What I liked:

– very shiny finish
– creamy, not-sticky and fairly moisturizing formula
– elegant packaging
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– average staying power
– shimmers remain after all the colour has disappeared
Plum lip shades are always in in fall. But not everyone has the courage to wear such a bold colour in public. Although I’ve always loved plum lips, it took me years to feel comfortable enough to step out of the house wearing a plum lipgloss. And even then it was a sheer one. But that’s the trick. If you feel you can’t pull something off, start with a subtle shade. Before you know it, you’ll be proudly rocking it in a bolder and brighter hue.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pearl Plum (sent me by my friend Janessa) is perfect to ease the transition to vibrant statement plum lips. In the tube, it looks really dark and rich, but it behaves very differently on the lips. When applied, it provides a subtle plum tint to them, while the silver shimmers, which are by no means over the top, make them shine. It’s just a very beautiful shade that brightens up your face.
Of course, you can always layer it if you want a more intense coverage. In any case, you will have to reapply it every couple of hours. That’s how long (or should I say little?) it lasts on my lips. The shimmers, though, hang onto your lips even after the colour has disappeared. I don’t mind this at all. As I said, they aren’t too obvious. But if that bothers you, simply wipe them off or apply another layer. Whatever suits you best.
Its average staying power is to blame on its non-sticky texture. The less sticky the lipgloss, the less it’ll usually last. It’s up to you to decide what’s more important to you in a gloss. The texture of Pearl Plum also feels comfortable, and, for a drugstore lipgloss, fairly moisturizing. And its vanilla scent is simply delicious!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pearl Plum is a shimmering and sheer, but buildable, plum shade that brightens up the face. Its texture is non-sticky and fairly moisturizing, but not very longlasting. The shimmers also hang around longer than the colour, which may put some people off.
