Review: Revlon Colorburst Lipglosses

Thursday, 17 January 2013

Before I found these I literally couldn't bare to wear any lip glosses ever. After trying different formula's from Barry M to MAC I found I hated how sticky and uncomfortable the majority were. All I wanted was a light, no hassle everyday lip product and I definitely found it in the Revlon Lipglosses. 


L-R Bellini, Pink Ice, Strawberry, Fire, Sunbaked, Bordeaux

First off, I love the packaging. It's actually pretty similar to the Chanel Glossimers and for a drugstore brand I think Revlon have the sleek packaging down. Secondly, I love that the light Vanilla scent these have isn't really overpowering, there's definitely nothing worse than finding a lovely product with a disgustingly strong, synthetic scent!

In terms of formulation, they are so comfortable to wear that I barely notice I'm wearing them. The nude glosses (Bellini and Pink Ice) are so flattering for everyday wear for someone who doesn't really suit nude lipsticks and they are all so so pigmented, as you will see in pictures below! The applicator is a flat doe-foot which makes it easy to cover your lips in two easy swipes which is always great when you're on the move.

 
Top Left to Bottom Right - Bellini, Pink Ice, Strawberry, Fire, Sunbaked, Bordeaux
Usually £7.99 but £5 at the moment in Boots!

They all vary in finishes with shades such as 'Strawberry', 'Bordeaux' and 'Pink Ice' appearing glittery in the tube. However I must comment that once on the lips, it really isn't very noticeable at all in look or feel of them. 'Bellini', 'Sunbaked' and 'Fire' don't contain any shimmer so if it is something that worries you, I'd go for one of those shades instead. It's hard to choose a favourite and I really have been impressed with all six shades I own but if I had to go for one I'd say 'Pink Ice' for being such a wearable shade with any make up look but I would highly recommend any of these shades, Papaya is next on my list!

  2. Ugh I despise lipgloss for the exact sam reasons you do! Can't stand the stickiness it's so awful like having my lips glued together! But maybe I will try Revlon lip glosses, they do look good in your photos

  3. I like Fire and Bordeaux the best. Lipglosses can be a nightmare (especially in windy weather, hair stuck in lipgloss = ewwwww) I am more towards lip stains at the moment with a hint of gloss on top so these could be good for that topcoat.

  10. i think i've tried strawberry. i don't like that particular color and the shimmer but the ones without shimmer look nice! i remember strawberry was very pigmented when i swatched it on my hand though :)

    1. I think of all of them that one is probably my least favourite - not to say it's not nice but it is a bit too shimmery at times! x
