Revlon Colorburst is by far my favorite formula when it comes to lip gloss. I never wore lip gloss before I found this formula because I didn't like the heavy/sticky/greasy/tacky feeling. This formula is really outstanding though. Fire is smooth without being slippery and very hydrating. I like that it's thick without feeling too thick. I get really good wear time out of it. With Fire, I really found that the color is buildable and easy to even out. I haven't noticed any fanning problems. Fire appears to be more blue based, which works very well with my yellow undertones and doesn't make my teeth look yellow. The color is definitely wearable for daytime. Even my dad loved the way it looked on me! Overall, I couldn't be happier with this!
If you look up the reviews by "most helpful" the first few that pop up really hit the nail on the head. Yes, this feels like a more blue based to neutral MAC Lady Bug. MUA will suggest Lady Bug for me, but in certain lights it looks a bit too orange toned at times. But Fire, is just bold, juicy goodness on my NW20, almost black hair, brown eyes, rosey lipped complexion. And as another most helpful reviewer said yes, this is pretty much liquid lipstick. It is what I like to describe as a Valentine red. You will want to use a liner and you will want to put this on in front of a mirror. This is not a grab and go gloss. But the color pay off is gorgeous.
This is the 2nd color I purchase in the Colorburst lipgloss. They are really a good value, don't have a funky taste, and for a gloss it stays on pretty well too and has lots of color.
The product is great in terms of consistency. It feels like a quality product, thick lip gloss...not see through runny crap.
The reason why I rated it a 1 was the color. Silly me to think the color "Fire" implied that is was solid red. I tried it on and it is NOT a solid firetruck red. It is a red/coral-ish color....a pinkish/red and I absolutely HATE pinky/red colors. I like bold solid RED.
I don't know why it seems that NO makeup brand knows how to make a classic electric fire truck red lipstick/gloss. So far I have been duped by every makeup company, buying lipsticks/glosses that looked bright red on the bottle and don't come out that way.
WHY CAN'T ANY MAKEUP BRAND JUST MAKE CLASSIC FIRETRUCK RED LIP PRODUCTS!?
This lipgloss is amazing. It's so pigmented though, that I almost hesitate to call it a lipgloss - the coverage is quite opaque and it's not a typical "lipgloss consistency", as in the formula is on the thick side. It's not goopy, but rather creamy. When I bought it, I thought it would be a neutral, maybe leaning warm red. Upon application, it was much more cool toned than I anticipated, but not in a bad way. It doesn't contrast in a bad way with my light olive skintone, which is pretty common for me with cool colours. The shine isn't too over the top or fake looking.. I'm not sure how to describe it, but Lancome Juicy Tubes are a good example of the type of shine I really dislike. Most cheap glosses also have a similar shine. This gloss however, just looks creamy and gorgeous like a moisturizing lipstick. After a few hours, it wears off evenly, leaving a pretty reddish stain on my lips. I would definitely repurchase.
fire is a creamy 50's pin-up red!so,retro red! Verry pigmented,creamy,last long!can be used alone or paired with a retro red! Verry nice retro red! Love it!
This is so pigmented, it's really closer to a liquid lipstick. It goes on like a true, dragon lady blue/red, No shimmer, lots of shine. But just put on a tiny bit, or wait until it's been on a few hours, and it fades to a beautiful raspberry popsicle tint. Love it!
I lost my favorite red liquid lipstick when my bathroom decided it would be fun to burn to cinders, so when I saw Revlon's ColorBurst gloss had a gorgeous red entitled 'Fire', I figured the universe was telling me something. I was right, because I actually like this one better than the ghost of lipstick past. It's a classic cool tone red, with more depth than fire engine. It works with my extremely fair skin and dark hair, being undeniably scarlet but in a refined sort of way. It looks very Old Hollywood, vampy but never trashy, with a pretty sheen that has nothing to do with glitter. The pictures of lips posted here make it look much lighter and more pink than it is, so the shade in the tube is more accurate. I certainly don't wear a shade this dramatic every day, but when only a femme fatale red will do, this is perfection. I love the soft, paddle-shaped brush, which allows for quick but very precise application. The formula has admirable staying power, acting like a stain but staying kissably moisturized. It's richly pigmented, making lipstick underneath totally unnecessary. The skinny tube fits nicely in a small purse and looks as luxe as Chanel. I think this gloss performs better than really high end products, costing only a tiny fraction of the price. I have nothing but superlatives to say about Fire, and there is no question I will buy it again.
Oh, I love this color-- good saturation that leaves a stain after wearing for approx. 3- 31/2 hrs. This is a perfect warm red for my blonde hair & blue eyes. This one has no shimmer, just a beautiful red creme. I've put this over my matte red lipsticks-- it brought my lips back to life. No noxious taste/smell-- thank you Revlon for reformulating your glosses & lipsticks w/o the previous ghastly odors! Have this in sev. colors. I put these up against any he gloss. Can't beat the colors & performance for 6.99 USD. continued >>
I've only worn this twice but man, I am in love with this colour! Revlon has done it again (I was a fan of their superlustrous glosses already). This is shimmerless and extremely pigmented for a gloss, but not tacky and I find I don't have to worry too much about it spreading out of the lipline. This is a cool red and very flattering on my complexion. Blotted once, it is a lovely stain, and without blotting at all it's a stand-out, patent-shine pigmented gloss. The packaging is classy, and there isnt a noticeable scent. Lovely, and I will check out the non-glittery glosses in this line next time I'm at the drug store :)
Compared with firecracker superlustrous (which I also have!) this is more pigmented and cooler in tone. This is more of a liquid lipstick which everyone seems to be coming up with these days.
