I'd been wanting to try the CB lip glosses and specifically this color for a long time, and finally they went on sale so I nabbed one. I am a huge fan of the Super Lustrous glosses, and also like the Mineral lip glazes so I was hoping these would be another winner from Revlon. Although I love the color (sheer nude/lilac pink on me) and the shine of this gloss, the smell and taste were very chemically. I couldn't wait to wipe it off as soon as I put it on. I know that some people don't like the Mineral lip glazes for the same reason but I found these to be much worse as far as taste and smell. Also, I am allergic to Revlon lipsticks but not their lip glosses, but I appear to be mildly allergic to these. So all in all these were a bust for me. I really like the color as well the packaging (I liked that the wand was bendy as well) but I had to exchange this gloss. I'll be sticking to the other Revlon glosses from now on.
I pair this with my Revlon Berry Haute lipstick and they look gorgeous together :)
Crystal Lilac is a pale mauve/lilac pink color with very fine bright pink shimmers throughout. The color is lovely and wearable. However, the formula is rather sub-par. It is on the thin side, slides around and doesn't last long. Also, I don't care for the long and slender packaging which contains a long stemmed applicator, making it harder to get control of application. The applicator itself is a round and flat on both sides, which is workable but sort of awkward. I would have much preferred a normal slanted doe-foot applicator.
The color is pretty, but the smell of this gloss is horrible! Like others have said it reminds me of plastic. Not worth it. This is going into the trash and I will not buy any gloss from this line again.
Very nice drug store lip gloss.... and a glossy dupe for MAC "Angel" lipstick. While the lasting power isn't the greatest, on the plus side there isn't any taste, smell or stickiness to this product.
!!Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss!! :D
- Moisturizing and creamy
- Nice and tall packaging
- Color range (Their are a lot of nice colors.)
- Applicator (It's a soft sponge texture, and the product gets on both sides of the applicator so you get equal amount of product for your top and bottom lip.)
- Price (They cost around $6 at Target, but I was lucky to get a $2 off coupon.)
OVERALL, I would recommend this lip gloss, I love it! :)
this products is ok. does the job my ELF lip gloss does(except this doesn't last as long). i'm not sure how much it is pricewise, but i can imagine it's something like $7 and up. not worth it in my opinion. but, i got this product free(in a freebie pack) when i got mascara, and i've used it a few times. as others say it's more of a bubble-gum pink so it makes me think of barbie and in turn of play-make up you start little girls off with. not really my cup of tea. i wouldn't buy it personally, at least not this color(i haven't looked at the collection but chances are they'll have another color i'd consider buying).
The colourburst line is now my HG lipgloss. I'm buying up all the pink shades and wearing them over lipstick. They are not sticky, they provide decent shine, and they don't run - I had a terrible experience with NYC lip gloss running down my chin - don't ask! Horrifying!
I just bought my 2nd Crystal Lilac tube because this is great for over lipstick as it is so light it won't change the shade of the lippie, just provide a more comfortable experience as my lips tend to get very dry.
Well done, Revlon!
This is a very pretty, semi-bright light pink. I thought it was going to lean more toward the cool side, with a hint of lavender, based on the color in the tube, but on me it is pure pink. No frost or glitter, which seems to be common in this line and I am happy to go without it! Slick, not sticky texture, but gets kind of goopy after wearing for awhile. Nice shine, but not so much that it is "glassy" (over the top). Only a little moisturizing, but that's not really its purpose anyway. Price is not bad and packaging is very chic. On a scale of 1-5 for lasting power, this gets a three; about average for a lip gloss.
I love love love this colour and it's such a great colour on my lips. I find this is a great day colour it's a cute pink colour in the tube but goes on kind of sheer on your lips and gives them a nice pinky hue.
Love it. Would absoloutly buy it again.
