Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick! – Bashful Blush

Kate Spade’s Supercalifragilipstick! in the shade Bashful Blush is described as “a sheer nude” and retails for $24 (3.2 g/0.11 oz). It’s a creme formula (no shimmer) sheer brownish pink with a subtle glossy finish that would suit many women as a “my lips but better” type of color. The color is sheer but buildable.

The lipstick comes packaged in a lightweight golden tube with Supercalifragilipstick! and the Kate Spade logo embossed in pink, and compared to a Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick the Supercalifragilipstick! tube is both longer and wider.

To demonstrate, a Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick (cap and all) fits the opening of a Supercalifragilipstick! tube.

The Kate Spade lipstick has a spring release very similar to the operating mechanism of a retractable ballpoint pen. Simply press once to release the inner tube that contains the lipstick bullet. And press a second time to secure (or lock) the bullet into the cap again.

Here’s a photo of the lipstick in the locked position:

“Pucker up” is written on the inner tube of the lipstick.

You can tell from just a glance that there’s less actual lipstick in the Kate Spade tube. A Revlon lipstick contains 0.15 (4.2 g) of product whereas a Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick! contains 0.11 oz (3.2 g) of product.

As for the lipstick formula, I honestly don’t think there’s a significant difference between the feel of a Revlon Super Lustrous and a Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick. Both apply smoothly and easily onto the lips. The Revlon lipstick feels a little creamier and has more slip on my lips. The Kate Spade feels a touch drier but has a slightly glossier finish. Neither lipstick is flavored but the Kate Spade has a slightly waxy scent whereas the Revlon has no scent at all. I don’t consider either lipstick particularly moisturizing and I get a couple of hours of wear out of each before I need to reapply.

I love the color of Bashful Blush but I don’t think it’s worth the $24 price tag. If Revlon came out with a similar color — maybe they already have one in their collection, I don’t know — I would jump on that in a heartbeat.
