Revlon's Coral Reef Lipgloss Revisited
I wanted to revisit my lip product stash and swatch some of my most loved products so I thought I'd start with something summer appropriate. Coral is that shade just shy of being orange and often times leans a bit pink. If there was one color I could wear on my eyes, cheeks, and lips, for the rest of my life it would be coral. Many of you probably own the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef or at least you have probably seen it on a blog or two. I actually blogged about this gloss over a year ago HERE but I only did pathetic skin swatches and my lighting was less than phenomenal.
Coral Reef is a true orange coral in the tube but once on my medium pigmented lips, a bit of the pink tones of my natural lip color peak through. Coral Reef instantly awakens my face with a pop of color on my lips. The gloss lasts about three hours and is initially quite sticky upon application but after a few minutes the stickiness is gone. I find this to be the case with many of my lipglosses. Perhaps it's just me.
There is no need to make this a long post because my point is simple. If you like coral makeup, lipglosses, and a good drugstore buy, you need this in your makeup bag.
