The Lipstick League – week of 3.17.14

Question of the Week: What is your all-time favorite drugstore lipstick?

EauMG’s Answer: This shouldn’t surprise you at all – Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. I love the formula and the color selection. Actually, I’m a major fan of all of Revlon’s lip formulas. I also love ColorBurst Lip Butters. 

In fact, you can find many swatches, etc. of Revlon lipsticks on EauMG: Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cherries in The Snow, 1970’s Look of Martine Beswick, 1920’s Look of May Allison and 1950’s Look of Lee Remick.

  1. i don’t know much about drug store lipstick… my drag days are still ahead of me… but can i just say everytime i hear a little old jewish lady talk about her “99 cent ‘tangerine’ or ‘orange souffle'” or similar named discount lipstick… it send me into hours of laughter!!

    “Dawl, you should get down to the CVS- there’s a sale on awrange crush dream. such a deal! i bawught fauwr.”

    (horrible attempt at translating a stereotypical accent my own and is not affiliated with EauMG in any way… nor is it thought to be very GOOD.)

    1. Hey, you know my grandma? 😉 Her signature is Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick in Persian Melon, quite the contrast against her olive skin.

      I can’t wait to live the “Ambrosia Lifestyle” one day. Floral print sofas, orange lipstick, pineapple desserts and telling strangers about my aches and pains. Oh, and “sandal toe” hosiery. Got to have tan pantyhose to wear with my “bone” Easy Spirit’s sandals!
