I’ve sure been enjoying Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks lately. Had forgotten what classics they can be and how good they feel. I may grumble occasionally about some other Revlon products but they do lipstick right.
Mauvy Night is currently available and is a lovely shade of dark mauve or plum. It has purple tones but isn’t violet.
Here’s a swatch of it under the camera flash, and then a comparison of it to both Toast of New York and Teak Rose.
I think I’m set for winter Super Lustrous lipsticks! Maybe I’ll pick up some more pinks in the spring.
Now, in case you really do want a movie night instead of or in addition to Mauvy Night, I’ve got some suggestions. Most are available on Netflix Streaming.
Nebraska (2013) is a black-and-white “road trip” film starring Bruce Dern. He was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar and the film received five other Oscar noms including Best Picture. I watched this with my husband and half of the time we were laughing and the other half of the time we wanted to cry. Very touching in many ways, and the cinematography perfectly portrays a small town on the Great Plains. Rated R for language.
Kahaani (2012) is the best Indian thriller I’ve ever seen. Unlike many Indian films there is no singing, no dancing. Kahaani features a strong female protagonist, Vidya, who arrives in the city of Kolkata, pregnant and alone, looking for her missing husband. Did he ditch her? She says not, but the police are skeptical. Is she deluded? This is a movie where nothing is what it seems, and maybe I was dense but the twist at the end totally broadsided me and made me want to watch the movie again immediately. Unrated but I would say R for violence.
Argo (2012) is well-known since it won the Best Picture Oscar two years ago. Starring and directed by Ben Affleck, it tells the story of the CIA’s elaborate ruse to rescue six Americans in Iran following the takeover of the U.S. embassy and their subsequent hiding in the Canadian one. It’s one of those stories that is so bizarre no one could’ve made it up. One of things I loved about it is that the clothes, hairstyles, and even eyeglasses are 1970s-spot on. Rated R for language and some violent images.
Want something a little good, a little bad, and a little weird? The Good, the Bad, the Weird (2008) is a Korean tour de force that looks like an old-fashioned American Western and is packed with thrills, strange characters, action, and comedy. It’s a high-speed chase to …. somewhere. Set in 1930s Manchuria, it starts with a train robbery and never lets up. Watch this with your adult kids and they’ll think you’re majorly cool.

Have fun & have a great weekend!
