“Are you made for Fire & Ice?” A Red Lipstick Comparison featuring Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice

I picked up Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice with the vintage Revlon logo, which was recently released with the Limited Edition Fire & Ice Collection. I am supposedly on a ban but I couldn’t resist. No will power lol… but how could I pass this up, Revlon’s famous Red with the original logo? Hello, Collector’s Item.

Since Fire & Ice is legendary and said to be the perfect red lipstick and a universally flattering classic, I decided to compare it to the other reds in my collection… which in my opinion are all universally flattering as well.

Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Fire & Ice is a bright classic red creme with a hint of fuchsia under certain lighting. It can be applied sheer or built up. The Super Lustrous formula is very moisturizing and long lasting.

Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Coral is a bright tomato red creme with orange undertones. It is pretty sheer but buildable, and also very moisturizing and long lasting.

NYX Round lipstick in Eros is an extremely bright fire engine red creme with orange undertones. Completely opaque with a few strokes and not for the faint of heart.

MAC Ruby Woo is a classic matte red with blue undertones. A favorite of MUA’s to use on models for the runway, and a cult favorite of women all over. Best when used with a liner and applied opaque. I find the formula to be a bit drying, however it is still gorgeous! This is super long lasting, in fact it sometimes leaves a stain.

Wet n’ Wild Megalast lipstick in Stoplight Red is a classic blue-based red with a satin finish. It is said to be a dupe for MAC Ruby Woo but as you can see it is not an exact match. Besides the two having different finishes, Ruby Woo is a tad darker. Stoplight Red is opaque in a few coats and long lasting. This is definitely a classic shade of red, think Marilyn Monroe.

MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is a sheer, coral-toned red with a lustre finish. It is a little buildable but not much, and requires frequent reapplication.

After doing swatches for this post, I realized that I am all set in the red lipstick department. I have a nice little collection ranging from muted, to classic to daring. I also have a set of red glosses including MAC Russian Red lipglass, so that’s it for me. I am definitely on a red ban until further notice.

The new ad is a reinvention of the famous 1952 Fire & Ice Revlon one which featured Dorian Leigh (left)… the new queen of the spotlight is Jessica Biel (right). The collection boasts three sets of  lipsticks and polishes with matching namesakes Siren, Temptress and Demure… and a set featuring nail polish in All Fired Up and the legendary Fire & Ice. The collection also features Revlon’s Signature Logo, which I love. Check it out when you get a chance, but don’t wait too long as all of the items except for Fire & Ice are limited edition. Fire & Ice remains a part of the permanent collection.
