Reviewers love the wide range of wearable colors that Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick provides. With 72 available shades, experts say that it would be hard not to find one that you like. The cream lipstick contains vitamins C and E to provide extra moisture to the lips, though a few users say that it can still be a bit drying. And like all cream lipsticks, Revlon can bleed into fine lines around the lips. But, reviewers say that for the affordable price and wide availability, this lipstick can't be beat. Users claim that it does have to be reapplied often. For longer-lasting lip color without the shine, MAC Matte Lipstick (*Est. $15) gets excellent reviews.
