Today’s late evening post is Revlon Super Lustrous I’m Not Afraid Matte Lipstick Review,Swatch,Photos
I bought this lipstick on my Karwa Chauth last year.It was mood elevating haul for me because it gave me a a good relaxing break from sickness and medicines. As I mentioned in few earlier posts also that I was diagnosed with enteric fever last year around Dussehra.High fever,general lethargy and bad taste in mouth left me in no mood for celebration. To brighten up my spirits, my hubby & my mom took me for some Karwa Chauth shopping .Then ,I bought two red lipsticks from Revlon being not sure which will match my red pooja outfit best. Today,I am going to share my review on one of them i.e Revlon Super Lustrous I’m Not Afraid Lipstick which has matte finish. Another shade that I picked was Revlon Super Lustrous Love That Red Creme finish which I will be reviewing on blog shortly.

Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipsticks are housed in standard “Revlon Super Lustrous Iconic” black plastic case with central golden rim. Lipstick bullet is visible across the transparent plastic roof of the lid. Packaging is completely different from the previous Revlon Matte Lipsticks which had silver rim and black matte lipstick case. In this version although golden sticker at the lipstick base is labelled with matte which was not the case with previous packaging.
Revlon Super Lustrous I’m Not Afraid is warm, medium red that will look pretty on all skin tones.It is lovely red lipstick that I love to pair with soft brown eyeshadow like MAC Soba & bold winger liner. In FOTD here, I have used mix of plums and grey in the outer corner of my eyelid , muted browns on inner lid to pair with this deep red lipstick.Beside this it’s a beautiful red for Indian festivities and bridal wear. Unlike matte lipsticks,Revlon Super Lustrous matte lipstick ‘ I’m Not Afraid” is a light weight , creamy formula which glides easily on lips without tugging or pulling. Texture is neither drying nor moisturizing but wears comfortable on my lips.
I’m Not Afraid gives intense color payoff and goes complete opaque in single swipe.Being rich in pigmentation, it will show up true to swatch even on pigmented lips .It applies with creamy finish which eventually mattify to semi matte finish. Unlike previous matte versions of Revlon,this is not a true matte. Formula is way too creamier for matte finish. I compared “I’m Not afraid “ on my upper lip with “Love That Red creme” on my lower lip.”Love That Red” looked bit glossy than I’m Not Afraid. Formula does not budge or feathers as such but transfers even after an hour of application as it never sets up to complete matte finish. It stays on my lips for good 4-5 hours without any meal in between. It disappears almost completely post meals.
VANILLA RATINGS 7.5/10
I’m Not Afraid is gorgeous warm toned red lipstick that will suit all skin tones. Red shade is perfect for festive season and Indian wedding functions also. Texture is creamy , lipstick rolls on lips smoothly without any tug. It wears comfortable on my lips without drying but can cling to dry patches .
I was a huge fan of previous version of Revlon matte lipsticks. But as far as this new packaging and formula is concerned, it is nowhere close to matte finish. I seriously missed that matte finish of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks. I have one more shade “Paradise Pink” from this collection. My only gripe is the finish which is semi matte. If you are looking for true matte finish which lasts long, this may disappoint you.
Have you tried any shades from Revlon SuperLustrous Matte Lipsticks? How do you find the finish? How do you like this shade I’m Not Afraid? Do mention in comments below
