Revlon Rio Rush Collection Lipstick Swatches

It’s so hard to find limited edition drugstore collections! Like needle in a haystack hard! I searched like crazy to find the new Rio Rush Collection lipsticks because the shades looked really beautiful. The collection was inspired by Gucci Westman’s take on the energy and passion of Brazil. The products are a mixture of bold and bright with some sultry bronze goodies tossed in. Of course, I was here for the bold and bright side of the collection so I picked up 2 of the limited edition Super Lustrous lipsticks.

There were two nudes in the Rio Rush collection but I opted for Sultry Samba and Carnival Spirit instead. Sultry Samba is a bright matte fuchsia and Carnival Spirit is a warm coral orange with a shine finish.

I hate to say it but these lipsticks are really disappointing so far. The colors are gorgeous but the pigmentation is severely lacking compared to the rest of the Super Lustrous line. I had to swipe both shades quite a few times to get the color to show up. I haven’t tried them on yet so I’m hoping they at least wear nicely since the pigmentation isn’t that great. I’ll be testing both shades very soon so keep an eye out for reviews! Until then, enjoy the swatches!

    I agree with you. I only purchased that Sultry Samba and the pigmentation is just not there. It’s not even that bright on the lips. I would say that these would be good for those folks that just want a slight wash of color. As for me, I don’t wear makeup everyday (even though I own alot…lol), but when I do, I want my lipstick to be poppin! Lol

      I’m the exact same way! Lol I’m way too lazy to put on a full face everyday so I rely on a nice bright lip. These just don’t cut it! I’m surprised because the Super Lustrous lipsticks are usually great. I wasn’t expecting these to be so bad lol

    Sucks, Revlon is usually quite genius at pigmented lipsticks and has some nice dupes to boot! They also have those amazingly bright matte lippies! If you want more drugstore brights, I was swatching some new bright L’Oreal lipsticks the other day.

      Yeah I don’t know what they were thinking with these lipsticks. Totally different from their usual quality! I recently picked up a L’Oreal lipstick. You just reminded me to pull it out lol. Thank you!
