I bought Revlon's Colorburst in 16 Bordeaux. I love the color. I get so many compliments on it, and it stays on. It's my favorite gloss. Although, it can be a tad sticky especially when applied heavily. Sometimes I pile on the gloss for a really deep color, and other times I will lightly apply for a hint of color. Either look, I love this color. I want to try other colors. The only downside is for a broke student, it's a bit pricey... but so is everything else. The other downside is that it can feel sticky, not often though, I've only felt it a few times.
Bordeaux is beautiful pigmented medium to deep red with touch of plum. I wear this mostly in the fall/winter. Its very wearable and not blazing bright or turn pink toned like most reds on my pigmented color lips. I use this more of a stain than a full on gloss. The high shine can be too much with red on my lips. I love these moisturizing colorburst glosses as there is no scent of tackiness that enhance dried lips.
This gloss is just shy of opaque, and the color was true to the tube on my lips. Can be layered. Longer lasting for a lip gloss (4+ hours on me). Wears well over lipstick.
A very nice deep berry color for the holidays. I'll be using it more in the winter than the summer.
bordeaux is a burgundy with gold shimmers in it.blends well,last long,verry pigmented,verry nice color! Love it!
Not as dark and dramatic as I thought it would be. Worked well over Revlon Muavey Night lipstick for a little more pop. But it's a really pretty sheer dark-berry and I love it! I'll definitely keep buying it.
I was quite skeptical of Revlon's claims that this was a full coverage lip gloss as I find it hard to believe such a thing exists. However, I liked this burgundy-plum shade so much I had to give it a try. It is quite pigmented, but not exactly opaque/full coverage in texture which was what I was hoping for. Bordeaux is a lovely shade though, very attractive on medium to olive skin tones especially, and the finish was very glossy as expected. Its staying power is okay, it does transfer and can form rings from uneven wear if you're not careful. Overall, I'd say the positives of this gloss are: pretty shade, good pigmentation, elegant classy packaging, good glossy finish, nice scent, good amount of product in the tube, reasonable price. Negatives are: transfers, wears unevenly, coverage could be better. I think this is a YMMV sort of product. If you like sheer yet pigmented, glossy lips and don't mind reapplying you'll probably love this one.
Great fall/winter color. Looks intimidating in the tube, but so beautiful on the lips. In the tube it appears to have a gold shimmer, but it isn't noticeable once it's on. This gloss isn't garish or overpowering, but does add a nice pop of color. It isn't sticky or thick feeling! I like to wear this with minimal eye makeup to school when I don't feel like putting a lot of effort into my makeup. :) The glossiness factor of this one has a little less staying power compared to the others, but leaves behind a great stain that lasts a long time. Love the elegant packaging and would definitely buy this again. The colorburst lip glosses are HG products to me!
I have dark lips and this comes out a glossy berry that leans purple on me. It looks great and the wear is just ok. The odd part is it leaves a bubble gum pink lip stain for hours on me. I cant tell if I like it or not but I have trouble achieving any true pink lip, so maybe it's a blessing in disguise?
Thanks to Irish ancestry, I have extremely fair, cool toned skin with dark hair and eyes, and burgundy has always been a go to color for me. For this reason, Bordeaux was the first ColorBurst lip gloss I tried, and it definitely wasn't the last. In the tube, it's a deep burgundy with subtle gold glitter. On me, it's more of a plummy wine, definitely more sheer than expected while still having superb, saturated pigmentation. The color looks almost exactly like a grape juice stain, not the most elegant of comparisons but accurate nonetheless. The only place the glitter shows up is on my blotting tissue - I can't really see it on my lips, so the shimmer must be very subtle. I love the kind of flattened applicator, which at first I thought was damaged. Now I understand the thought behind the paddle shape, although I wish the tip was more pointed for accuracy with such a dramatic color. Worn alone, this particular ColorBurst gloss doesn't last as long as other shades. I would need to reapply every couple of hours, but if I blot a few times initially it acts more like a stain and lasts longer. My favorite way to wear this is over a plum colored lipstick, which seems to give the gloss an anchor as well as great depth. It's also the perfect way to rescue a lipstick that just isn't quite the shade I'm after. The ColorBurst glosses aren't precisely cheap by drugstore standards, but I will still definitely buy again sometime in the distant future when mine finally run out. They have amazing quality and longevity, and look as luxe as any high end brand.
