The Colorburst lipsticks are excellent affordable lipsticks for everyday wear. I bought Mauve, Rosy Nude and Soft Rose. These colours give a MLBB look. As my lips are dry and will crack without lipbalm or moisturising lipglosses, I apply Colorburst over Lancome's Juicy Tube. The stickiness of the lipgloss ensures the lipcolour becomes long lasting and the lipstick somehow takes away much of the stickiness of the Juicy Tubes. Win! The intensity of the lipstick can layered from sheer (1 pass) to medium. I am saddened that Revlon has discontinued this line of lipsticks but relieved that I had purchased 3 shades.

I have colorburst in Blush which has been discontinued :( I absolutely love the shade. Its perfect nude for me. The color might wash out some dark toned beauties.
Pros:-
Moisturising.
Color payoff is good and is buildable.
Long staying power (3-4 hrs without meals)
Amazing packaging
Cons:-
None

Will definetely repurchase in different colors

I have a few of these in various colours; 025 (Carnation), 070 (Soft Nude) and 096 (Petal).

The packaging is beautiful and very upper-class looking. I like how the colours are displayed on the top of the lid. Carnation and Petal are hydrating, but Soft Nude seems to be very dry on my lips! I find that quite strange.

Overall, while I think the colours are beautiful, they are not long-lasting for me. They have a tendency to slip off as soon as I eat or drink. Unfortunately, I won't be re-purchasing.

My absolute favourite lipstick, glides on effortlessly, doesn't dry out lips and stays on extremely well with the help of Lipcote. Another good thing is it is extremely versatile in the way of coverage, you can choose to use it merely for a hint of colour or build it up to a bold statement lip. Cannot reccomend enough.

I am a fan of Revlon Super lustrous lipsticks, and I am really liking the Colorburst. The packaging is fantastic and looks and feels very high-end. I love the all black, matte finish and that the top of each tube matches the shade inside. I think its, by far, the nicest packaging you can find in a drug store product and a close second to MAC. Like the Super Lustrous, these have no scent or taste, which I love. They go on very smooth and creamy and are long-lasting. Love them!

I'm using cherry ice. I was actually looking for a striking red color but since such was not available when I was craving to buy a lipstick, I decided to give Cherry Ice a try. Yep, it's red, but not hte red that I want. However, giving it 4-6 layers would satisfy the redness that I want. Anyway, this is for me, just an ordinary mid-range priced lipstick. Nothing extraordinary about it. I also find it easy to swipe off the color. Just few mucnhing and drinking and the color is gone. Though Ive found a trick to have its color stay unto your lips, by putting (after your lip balm of course) a layer, then dab your lips with a tissue with loose powder (to make it matte, a secret to long lasting lipsticks), then layer it again. My usual non-long lasting lipstick would stay for like 6 hours even after eating and drinking! I dunno if this would dry up your lips. I have dry, chapped lips so i make sure ive put lipbalm first, but this one does NOT dry my lipstick at all, nor worsen the dryness. But as ive said, I always put lipbalm first to protect my lips from chapping.

I would not buy this again, why? As i've said, I'm looking for a super striking red with long lasting color lipstick. So I'll maybe buy MAC's Russian Red next time after I'm through with this one.

It's a good lipstick, sufficient enough to not have 3 lippies. At first application you get a very sheer coverage, but you can build it up by blotting with a tissue and reapplying. The consistency feels like a chapstick and has a pretty gloss over it. Color goes on smooth and even. However, the downside of having such a creamy formula is the effect of having it "slip and slide" if you're to smack your lips together so be sure to blot a little if you want to keep it in place more effectively. It isn't long lasting so I do find myself having to retouch about every hour or two, but at least I don't get that dry feeling on my lips!

I have this is Raspberry and Rosy Nude! They are fabulous!

It is very buidable, so I can go for a very soft warm lip with a tint of reddish, that looks very natural and nice with just one swipe. Or for a darker more red lip with a few layers.

It's also very moisturizering and doesn't leave my lips dry.

A side back would be that it does not last long. At least not for me, I tend to rub my lips a lot together and lick my lips and it smears a bit and rubs off.

I'd just like to say that this is one of my favorite drugstore lipsticks at the moment. I bought the color Candy Pink, which is a sheer Barbie pink. To my surprise, it was really sheer when I tried it on the first time, but it's build-able. It's a super smooth and creamy formula. It didn't dry my lips out or leave any kinda disgusting residue. It's very moisturizing. The staying power is okay, but you might have to do touch ups every once in a while throughout the day.

The packaging is cute, there's a nice selection of colors, it's inexpensive - so really, what's not love? I will definitely be going back to the store to buy a few more shades like maybe a nice nude or plum.
