Ok so many of you thought I’d go with True Red right away but it might surprise you to know that I actually swiped True Red last out of the 3 Revlon ColorBurst lipsticks I had. Perhaps I was just saving the best for the last 😀
Like all the other ColorBurst lipsticks, the Revlon ColorBurst True Red swipes a very pigmented shade of red. What you see in the tube will end up on your lips. Might it be a shade for everyone?
My answer will be no. You must WANT to wear red lipstick to wear this colour. If you are new to red lipsticks, True Red is not the best introduction because it is so bright, you will tuck it away and be afraid of red lipsticks forever! If you have started easing into brighter lip colours, then True Red might be one to consider.
I did not detect it to be very warm nor is it very cool toned. I personally think most Asian skintones can handle this shade of red (if you like a bright red). My lip color lasted me through morning coffee, water, and I rubbed it off after lunch. I had 2 people tell me they saw my lips from a mile away – ok the exact statements were that it was “very bright” but then I’m used to that 🙂 So consider yourself duly warned and my swatch and look is below.
