Revlon Sparkling Quartz, Beaming Strawberry, Glossed Up Rose Melting Glass Shine Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches
Sparkling Quartz (001)
Revlon Sparkling Quartz (001) Super Lustrous Melting Glass Shine Lipstick is a colorless base with a fine, white pearl throughout that added subtle luminosity to the lips without adding color. It had “sheer coverage” from the shimmer/sheen, but this particular shade was designed to be “clear” per the brand.
This is for those who want something that’s like a lip balm with a little more shimmer to it but doesn’t have the feel or full-on shine of a true gloss. It had a creamy, melt-on-your-lips consistency that was lightweight and moderately emollient but didn’t feel overly slippery while worn. It lasted two to three hours (hard to tell since it was clear!) and felt hydrating over time.
Beaming Strawberry (002)
Revlon Beaming Strawberry (002) Super Lustrous Melting Glass Shine Lipstick is a brighter pop of medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly over my lips but a bit of product pulled into my deeper lip lines.
The consistency felt smooth, creamy, and melted against my lips during application, but it seemed to “set” a touch and didn’t feel quite as slippery after a minute or so of wear (but never fully set!). It stayed on well for three and a half hours and felt moisturizing while worn.
Glossed Up Rose (003)
Revlon Glossed Up Rose (003) Super Lustrous Melting Glass Shine Lipstick is a muted, medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, though it wasn’t full coverage. The more melting, creamy texture made it harder to build up the coverage beyond what was initially delivered.
Thankfully, there was a slight set to the formula that minimized some of that initial slip, which made it easier to wear (but still comfortable) as it didn’t slide around while worn. It wore nicely for three and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.
