I've been a huge fan of Revlon lip glosses recently, especially the color burst ones. I decided to pick this up because it had been compared to NARS' Orgasm. I love NARS and am always up to find a dupe for a product I've expressed interest in. The quality of the color burst lip glosses overall I find good. In my opinion I feel like this gloss isn't as great as the other color bursts I've had. The only reason why I find it to be lesser quality is the pigmentation. When swatched Peony is a sheer pink with gold shimmer/sparkle. It's not bad at all and I still like it very much, but compared to Crystal Lilac's[another color burst] opaque, in your face pigmentation I was a little disappointed. It still is good for a pretty pink lip. The applicator is unique and really helps you distribute the product on your lips. Its good, but not one of my favorites. I might purchase again, just if I needed a good pink gloss.
This particular color is a peachy pink with flecks of gold. It is a gorgeous color and I think most people can wear this peach/coral, but that's about the only thing i like about it.
On to the cons:
Its kind of hard to get the product out, I had to swirl like it's a half empty tube of gloss.
For something called colorburst and advertised as a gloss that delivers a pop of color, I still needed to apply a concealer on my pigmented lips to achieve that pop of color. Otherwise, it looks like I put on a sheer pink gloss. (The revlon super lustrous glosses are more pigmented)
The smell (as said by another reviewer) reminds me of cough syrup + something else (she said donuts).
Despite being somewhat sticky, the staying power of this gloss is not that impressive.
Pretty coral pink with slight gold flecks. Kinda reminds me of nars orgasm and ysl golden gloss in #19 but less vibrant. Worth the buy though!
Got this and Strawberry at BOGO50 sale at CVS. I've been tempted to try these since they came out but I hesitated because I didn't like the regular Super Lustrous l/g from Revlon that much.
I must say that the color Peony is very pretty, although on me it is exactly the shade of my lips...soooo....it looks like I have clear gloss on. But I use it to layer over my fave MLBB lipstick (NYX darling) and it's beautiful.
There's something very odd about the scent though. Reminds me of doughnuts & cough syrup but I can't put my finger on why. Do they all smell like this?!?
UPDATE: This gloss bleeds like crazy on my lips. Even when I try to put a small amount on, it feels like its travelling in all directions within minutes. Not good.
Got these during a bogo. I purchased this along with Crystal lilac. OMG I am so loving these glosses! Revlon and loreal have always been my go to drugstore brands and they just keep coming out with hits for me! This lipgloss melts into my lips so beautifully and gives high long lasting shine. Its got pink and gold and even a teeny bit of purple sparkle thrown in to make this shade wearable with many different looks without clashing. The crystal lilac is equally just as stunning and looks flattering against my NC 30 skintone. A medium pink with tons of pink and purple sparkles. I wear it on top of revlon matte pink pout when I want to avoid the matte finish and add shine while also adding sparkles. Since the two are close in color the lipstick shade isn't changed with the lipgloss on top. Totally recommend (:
This will probably be my go-to shade of neutral lip gloss from now on. I love the Revlon colorburst line of lip glosses. I have 4 shades: Strawberry, Papaya, Peony, and Rose Pearl. Each shade is unique and highly pigmented.
Peony is a neutral light pinky brown with a hint of non-tacky shimmer. This would look great with a dark or smokey eye, and it also looks great with just a hint of mascara on those au natural days.
The consistency of the gloss is amazing. Buttery, creamy, not at all sticky and very non-drying. When the gloss eventually wears off, the color remains for hours after, and more importantly, it remains evenly.
The applicator is not quite doe foot...It's longer, almost mobius strip shaped. But it allows for the application of a doe foot with the precision of a brush.
A++ to Revlon for this fantastic line!
I love this gloss. Shade is quite similar to Orgasm but a bit on the pinky side. Not as pigmented as the O gloss, but has this wet shine when applied over bare lips.
Texture reminded me of Chanel Aqualumiere glosses, same with the packaging. This is probably the best drugstore lip gloss I have ever bought. ( Considering I work at a drugstore)
I love layering this gloss over lipsticks. It's got this non-stick mega watt shine.
Well Done, Revlon!
Easily dupable, but very pretty. This peachy pink has very subtle golden shimmer throughout, and I have to agree with a previous reviewer that it's Nars Orgasm in lipgloss form. It's very warm, and quite lovely.
The wear is excellent, and it doesn't dry out my lips. It's got enough pigment it can be worn alone, but I like it over an MLBB lipstick even better. The flat sponge applicator is something new for me, but it does seem to allow for more precise application. I like the quilted cover, too - Revlon's subtle nod to Chanel.
Currently these are available at Shoppers Drug Marts in Canada for about $11.49. I'd wait for a sale, or when they hit up WalMart, where they'll surely be a couple of dollars cheaper.
Color: peachy pink with shimmer
Pros: pigmented, not sticky
Cons: leaves glitter residue on lips, no shine
Comments: This isn't a gloss at all...because there is no shine. There's just shimmer. Formula is nice - not sticky at all. I won't wear this on its own, but looks great when paired with a nude lip.
I have these glosses in Peony and Cystal Lilac (so far). The first thing that struck me about this color is how much it looked like NARS Orgasm blush (I've posted a comparison pic). The formula of these glosses are very nice, they're not super thick and they're not sticky at all. They're also not as pigmented as I expected. Fans of Nymphette gloss would probably like this oneas it's very similar to that or to Milani Summer Baby. The wear on these, for me, is about an hour or two because I'm a habitual lip smacker once I have gloss on, I can't stop rubbing my lips together. The applicator is a little strange, it's not your typical doe foot, it's more flat and rounded... I don't find that it gives me any trouble applying the gloss, however, and I can still get to the edges of my lips fairly well. I am really liking this gloss and would repurchase.
