We can guarantee almost every woman owns, or has owned, at least one Revlon lipstick in her lifetime. The make-up heavyweight has long been a name on everyone's lips, and is always a go-to for the beauty-obsessed.
From the 1950's through to today, Revlon have played a huge role in revolutionising the make-up industry. Providing women with looks to lust over, it's no surprise that Revlon are every bit as popular as they were back in the day.
We're taking a walk down memory lane, and looking into their cult favourite range: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick.
The Fashionable 50's
In the early 50's Revlon launched one of the most talked about beauty campaigns of the time. The Revlon 'Fire & Ice' campaign caused a stir among the beauty-conscious women of the post-war period, and set Revlon as a force to be reckoned with. The campaign featured the Super Lustrous lipstick, and a nail lacquer of the same shade.

The Super Mod 60's
Moving into a new decade, Revlon began to play with differing shades and expanding their beauty empire. Women across the globe were given new colours, to match the silver screen glamour popular at the time.

The Flower Power 70's
The 70's were a time of cultural shifting. Political and social movements changed aspects of the fashion and beauty world for the better, and Revlon were right there encouraging the changes. The 70's saw Revlon introduce their first advertisement featuring African American model, Naomi Sims. This was a first for American cosmetics brands, and solidified Revlon as a beauty giant for ALL women.

The Acid Bright 80's
The 80's worked to bring bright neon colours into everyday fashion. Although many 80's styles have thankfully been left in the past, the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks in a range of hot pink colours has remained just as popular in 2017.

The Beauty-Obsessed Present
Today the brand has expanded even further, and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks now feature 54 shades. From matte, to sheer, or creme, each colour highlights the beauty giant's expansive past and history of bold movements. With ever-changing technology, Revlon have used microfine pigments to give lips a statement colour, without the risk of drying out. As times have changed and trends have adapted, we've seen brands come and go. It's clear that Revlon won't fall into this same fate - their lipsticks will remain a cult classic for the years to come, and will stay an important part of our makeup collections.
