When I was in college, I worked at the school library – manning the the periodicals counter. I cleverly scheduled my hours for Friday and Saturday evenings, knowing full well that this was when most students were prepping for the parties (gals getting prettified and guys getting their Natty Light-induced buzz on). It was probably a good thing that I worked when no one needed help, as I spent most of my time reading fashion mags instead of brushing up on my microfilm/microfiche assistance abilities.
Where was I going with this back-in-the-day tale? Oh, I remember…I spent almost every cent of my earnings at the local CVS, buying Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. Yes, I was a makeup fiend even back then.
The Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick line-up has pretty much stayed the same since my undergraduate days. Which is why a Revlon ad in the February 2009 issue on In Style Magazine caught my eye. Jessica Alba is looking quite sultry, wearing a dark crimson on her lips. When I looked to the bottom of the page to find out what shade she had on, it said “Jessica Alba is wearing Super Lustrous Lipstick in Spicy Cinnamon.” I was like, huh? Since when does Revlon have a shade called Spicy Cinnamon? Well, since now, apparently.
Twelve new shades have been added to the Super Lustrous family – and can be found at mass-market retailers nationwide.
