So, Revlon has a new lipstick and its all good! I’ve always had a soft spot for Revlon lipsticks. Their Superlustrous lipsticks were one of the first lipsticks I ever picked up and they were great for the price you pay! Now, they try to top that with Color Burst lipsticks.
Already getting rave reviews from all over the world, I must say that the raves are not misplaced. These Revlon Color Burst lippies are fab stuff!
The Color Burst lipsticks apply super smooth, are pigmented, don’t dry out my lips and the colour lasts. Its not shiny, but there is a bit of a gloss sheen. I like lipsticks like that :)
I also like the case. It looks more expensive than it really is and there is a slight rubbery feel so there’s good grip. The pattern on the case reminds me of the Dior Rouge case and the slight rubbery feel reminds me of NARS lipsticks packaging. On the lipstick is etched the name “Revlon” so you don’t forget :P That touch reminds me of Chanel!
So, with the body of Dior and Nars and the almost-texture of Chanel, the Revlon Color Burst is what the result would be if Dior, Nars and Chanel mated and went budget :P
I personally hated NARS lipsticks – I found them too drying but this Revlon one might give Chanel a bit of run for their money.
There will be 8 shades available in Malaysia as shown in the color swatch below. Which is your colour? I’m thinking of getting Peach next – it looks lovely and warm :D
Pros: Affordable, Smooth and pigmented, Not drying, Longlasting, Glossy sheen
Cons: Cannot find any :P
The colours I have are Mauve, True Red and Blush and I’ll show you each of the 3 lipsticks in a different post next week because I’m complicated like that :P So tell me which colour you want to see first and we’ll take it from there in descending order of comments :)
Revlon ColorBurst lipsticks retail at RM39 at all Revlon counters
