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.
I was impressed with the quality of Revlon Colorburst lipstick, so I got the lipgloss in Fire. I lost my favorite red gloss ironically enough in a house fire, and wasn't able to replace it as it had been discontinued. I actually think Revlon's Fire is better, a beautiful cool toned red in exactly the right shade for my fair complexion. The first time I opened it I thought my applicator had been damaged, but the paddle shape is intentional. It fits perfectly between my lips, allowing me to apply gloss to both upper and lower lip at the same time. It's also a bit narrower than other applicators, which facilitates accuracy. I like the cross-hatching on the lid which gives a good grip, and the packaging looks more luxe than drugstore. The gloss itself is creamy and smooth, with a subtle dessert-like scent. Vanilla is scientifically proven to be the most appealing smell to men (other than new car, of course), my husband included, so I wish the scent lasted more than just a few minutes. The pigmentation is superb, and lasts a lot longer than any other gloss I've tried, including Revlon Super Lustrous. I like that it's easy to apply however much color you want, whether a light wash or full on drama. It's not sticky or tacky, stays where I put it and doesn't settle into lines. I liked it so much that I bought one in Rosegold, Strawberry, Bordeaux, and Papaya, the latter of which turned out to be too much of a coral for me, so I gave it to my sister. My goal is to acquire the entire collection, and I just got Orchid, Peony and Hot Pink on Ebay. The glosses with glitter are my favorites, so I don't understand why others have had problems. I also am puzzled why other reviews have bashed the pigmentation quality. I usually wear gloss on top of a lipstick, but even alone the color is lovely. Whenever I'm wearing one of these I get lots of compliments, and am frequently asked for specifics. Drugstore brands have come a long way in terms of quality and while I agree these glosses aren't exactly dirt cheap, they're excellent value for what you pay. I've been using them for 8 months and can barely tell they aren't brand new. When I finally use one up, probably in two years time, I will most definitely buy again.
This product has beautiful packaging and shades but I just couldn't get over the smell! I've read so many reviews about it having a slight vanilla scent but after going to three different stores and trying out all the testers, all of the glosses have this gross plasticky scent that reminds me of dirt almost. Too bad. :(
i had a few of the glitter ones. i hated them so much.. they felt absolutely awful on my lips. the glitter in it was very gritty.. i have worn glitter based glosses before, and usually you would not be able to feel it on.. i would never recommend this to anyone, you are better off going to the dollar store...
