Red Lips Day 13 – Revlon Fire & Ice Superlustrous Lipstick

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 1 - 2011

After promising myself that I would attempt the next Red Lip with a bit more complementary colour on my eyes instead of a rudimentary streak of liquid liner, I failed.

Revlon Fire & Ice is a re-release of a shade that first saw light of day in 1952… this makes it an absolute perfect option for those wanting to recreate a retro red look!  Fire & Ice has that hint of orange that places it firmly in the 50s.

I’m looking forward to doing the swatch comparisons for the last 7 offerings because this one will contrast nicely to the cool-toned reds that I favour without being in the same ‘orange’ family as shades like Chanel Coromandel.

The formula is creamy and glossy, I tend to apply and blot before slicking on another layer.  Not hugely long-wearing but it fades cleanly.  This is a great shade if you want to dip your toe into warmer reds without going all out.

Plus, at £7.49… it makes for a good budget choice!

    Fire & Ice is my favorite red! I mainly love how it applies; most of the reds I’ve tried are so drying, and this goes on like lip balm. Plus it seems a bit more ‘wearable’ to me, IDK. It looks great on you, too! <3

    I have got to ask because your lips look always perfect! what do you do to scrub/prime them? cause they never look flacky and the colours stay on just seemlessly! Love it!

    Have you tried any of the other shades in the retro line? I also picked ‘demure’ on a whim, and I’ve been wearing it constantly since. It’s sheer (and, well, *demure*) but there’s something about it; it brightens my face up, and paired with eyeliner has a low-key chicness to it.
