Review: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick

I immediately played with the Revlon Color Burst Lipstick as soon as I got it. The tube's design was so chic and sleek with its tire-like ridges and matte finish. Definitely a first among many of my collection. The patent color cap on top was a nice way to tell me what color I'm using as well. I wish NYX did it like this instead.

Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Blush

Having been addicted to opaque lipsticks for the past few months, I never realized the importance of a good "your-lips-but-better" shade of lipstick. I'm so glad I got the Blush shade of Revlon Colorburst because it is exactly the same shade of my lips.... and yeah, it made it better! Imagine, my lips are named "Blush"? How flattering. :)

This lipstick will definitely have a permanent place inside my makeup kit.

Revlon Color Burst Lipsticks in Fuchsia

One of the most opaque flamboyant and loud pink lipstick I own, is definitely this Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Fuchsia. It's even darker the NYX Louisanna. But not too dark that I can't dare wear it. I love that the shade lives up to the given name. I really love this color and looking for ways to wear it already.

A fabulous addi(c)tion to my collection of pink lipsticks. It's funny how I fail to get tired of pink lipsticks!

Revlon Color Burst Lipsticks in True Red

If NYX Eros has a twin sister, it would be the Revlon Color Burst in True Red. Indeed, red cannot be truer than this. I would love to top my MAC Russian Red with this shade to make a very Dita Von Tease inspired look. MY OCC Liptar in NSFW will definitely look its best when I apply Revlon Color Burst True Red as a base.

I'm glad I am in possession of this fabulous lip color since the shade is my favorite kind of red. The glossy but opaque shade really makes me wish I'm in the early 1950's so I can use this everyday!

Raves:
1. Easy to glide-on lipstick.
2. Glossy effect that make lips look plump.
3. Non-drying with a the sweet almond oil ingredient that improves skin texture.
4. High-impact color. Super pigmented lipstick that a swipe or two is enough to show the color.
5. Long wearing lipstick. Lasts 3 to 4 hours (without eating or drinking)
6. More shades available!
7. The sleek unique packaging and the mold of the lipstick itself makes it easier to trace the lines around the lips.
8. No need for gloss since the finish has glossy effect.
9. Accessible at any retail stores like Watson's, Landmark Department Store and Beauty by SM.

Rants:
1. The price may be a bit steep to come.
2. The packaging may be prone to scratches and easily acquire dirt like NARS packaging.

Tips and Tricks:
1. Use a lip liner to ensure that your lipstick will not bleed out the corners of your lips.
2. For longer wear of your lipstick, blot your lips with tissue after first application and re-appluy again.
3. Application via lip liner will also ensure that your lipstick will stay longer.

Revlon Color Burst Lipsticks are definitely for modern women always on-the-go. No fuss for a woman who has the world at her feet. We can't have you going to meetings and fulfilling dreams with a lipstick that is not going to stay longer and give you the high impact colors you deserve.


much love,
Shen

those colors look fantastic on you! I think you should be able to pull off Fuchsia really well. I have Soft Nude and Blush. Blush is quite the awesome color
