The color range of these glosses is very good. There are lots of wearable as well as fun and up to date/trendy colors. They actually contain the same amount of product as the Revlon Super Lustrous glosses (.2 fl.oz). However, I think the formula is drastic fall from the older SL glosses. Comparatively, the Colorburst formula is thinner, more runny, slippery, less shiny and does not last nearly as long or wear as well as the SL glosses. To clarify, this is based on a personal preference for stickier glosses because they last longer. The SL gloss formula is second only to Mac ones in terms of formula and wear. The Colorburst glosses, despite of the exciting color selection is rather lacking in terms of its formula. I only have three colors:
Crystal Lilac-pale mauve/lilac pink in a satin finish with fine pink shimmers
Cheers-medium fuchsia pink in medium opacity
Decadent-medium purple with fine blue shimmers in a satin finish and medium opacity
I do enjoy the colors but I find myself not reaching for them too often since they don't last long on the lips, slip around quite a bit and doesn't necessarily layer well on top of other lipsticks. Until they improve on the formula, I will not be buying more from this range regardless of how great the colors are.
Got this LIP BUTTER for $7.49 at Ulta. Hard to find due to the hype and popularity, but Ulta in Hunt Valley has a good supply, but it is dwindling. I got this in Sweet Tart because I LOVE that Revlon polish color - always get compliments. This is really nice - bleeds more than the NYX creme I got the same day,
but then, this is more of a lip gloss. Really beautiful color.
I can see why most love it.
I got this as a freebie promotion in Boots - free lip product with any foundation product. So I picked this up in Peony, a really pretty peachy pink shimmer. I really like the non sticky formula and the colour payoff is lovely.
I bought 008 Peony, a really pretty shimmer-packed peach pink. It's not terribly pigmented, but does a nice job of creating a light, airy look. I also liked how light this lipgloss feels on my lips; I've been using a couple of Japanese drugstore brands which are very creamy and pigmented, but also feel really sticky and heavy. So this is a wonderful change instead. My only quibble is that the glitter/shimmer in Peony can be a bit over the top for casual wear, I feel. But the lipgloss formula is great. You also get a decent amount of product in a nice, classy packaging that doesn't look very drugstore-ish at all. *thumbs up*
I bought colorburst glosses in crystal lilac (002) and buff (032). These colors are gorgeous! Crystal lilac is pinky nude with subtle lilac shimmer and buff is a peachy nude that doesn't wash me out. Love the texture, very smooth when applied and not sticky at all. After 20 minutes it's completely gone, but that's not a big deal for me. I will repurchase and buy another colors.
I don't usually use drugstore makeup products, but I was intrigued by the color Strawberry. It is gorgeous. One coat is sheer, 2 coats makes it mostly opaque, It's a warm toned, bright strawberry pink with a bit of coral. It's very moisturizing. It's a tad sticky, but enough so that it stays on. I'm not enamored with the smell, but it's not terrible. And the packaging is simple and classy. Well done Revlon.
Love the packing its so sleek and looks like it's high end when it's really not.i own it in eggnog which is a pinkish nude. The smell really isn't the best but it's something I can get over. It leaves my lips shiny and smooth unfortunately it doesn't last long and I need to keep reapplying it.
I purchased this from Target for $7 in the color sienna. I really love the fact that it is not sticky has a nice shine and seems to last a decent amount of time. I really like the applicator sponge versus a brush.
!!Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss!! :D
- Moisturizing and creamy
- Nice and tall packaging
- Beautiful color (I own it in #2 Crystal Lilac)
- 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! :)
I think I found my HG lipgloss. The Revlon colorburst lipglosses are highly pigmented glosses that are never sticky or tacky and yet are quite long lasting. In my experience lip glosses fell into two categories either sticky and longlasting or none sticky and fast fading. But these new colorburst lipglosses (i have bordeaux and sienna sparkle) are a new breed. The colour does last quite a while (by lipgloss standards). The glossy shine is just enough, not too over the top and when the shine factor fades, there is still a hint of colour (like a lipstain) that lingers for some time. It goes on smoothly and evenly, feels great on, and has excellent pigmentation. However, it really is the longevity of colour that sets it apart from the rest. I paid $4.00 CAN for it and would most definitely repurchase. The only con is with the colour selection which is only ok but the product itself is very good.
