Fact: bright lips give me life. Whenever I’m in an especially sassy mood, a great vibrant lipstick always hits the spot. One of my go-to drugstore brands for statement lipstick is Revlon. Revlon Fire & Ice Super Lustrous Lipstick is an iconic shade that was launched in the 1950s. Depending on your skin’s undertones, Fire & Ice can pull warm or cool, but there’s no denying that it’s a stunner.
When wearing a red lipstick like Fire & Ice, I have to be extra careful to conceal all the redness out of my skin, or risk looking feverish. Instead of blush, I lightly dust my face with bronzer. Then, I fill in my brows, and wear something simple on my eyes like a flicked eyeliner, or a subtle smudging of grey or brown eyeliner.
The long-running Unsung Heroes series features much-loved permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious beauty brands.
As with my other vibrant lip shades, I adapt Fire & Ice to whatever I’m doing that day. Going in for a day at the office? Lightly press over lip balm for a sheer stain. Wanna dress to impress at an evening event? In this case, I apply straight from the tube and precisely shape the lines with a lip brush.
On me, Fire & Ice leans more tomato red, but on others it may look more coral or pink. I love the Revlon Super Lustrous line because they are creamy and incredibly comfortable to wear. Honestly, the colour payoff rivals that of high-end lipsticks. At under $10, this is a no-brainer. Prepare to turn some heads with this lipstick on. Joan Holloway, is that you?!
