The Revlon Colourburst Lipglosses are new but they have also been around a while. Have you checked them out? I actually purchased one in Rose Pearl or Perle Rose when it first came out, but it totally slipped my mind until I was reminded of it recently :P
The Revlon Colourburst lipglosses are some seriously fun lipglosses. I’m not a fan of lipglosses in general, but the Revlon Superlustrous lipglosses were always an old time fave of mine from way back. I’m also a fan of the Colorburst lipsticks, so naturally I had to go and check out these new glosses :)
What these lipglosses are, are shiny. Shiny and shimmery.
Did I mention shiny? Here are some swatches I took in store so lighting is off and its been so long that I can’t remember half the shades swatched anymore :P
The colour actually looks a lot brighter in the tube but swatches a little more sheer. That’s a good or bad thing depending on how you like your glosses. For me, I found the lighter shades tended to swatch light, while the darker brighter shades were more true to colour. Still, do not forget that these are lipglosses and so are sheerer than lipsticks.
I’ll tell you about the Revlon Colourburst lipgloss in Strawberry today. Its an adorable colour :)
In keeping with my whole resolve to try pink lip colours, Strawberry is right up my alley of “Pinks that suit me”. As a gloss, its quite perfect, with super high shimmer and shine. Its not sticky (very important for me) and not goopy nor too thick nor drying. There is a sweetish scent I’d be happier without but it doesn’t kill me so I can live with it :P
The applicator bears mention. Unlike the traditional sponge doe foot applicator, this one’s a long sponge applicator that is designed to make it easier to apply colour more smoothly. I find the long applicator takes a bit of getting used to as its quite flexible but it does deposit more pigmented colour on your lips so I forgive it that.
In terms of colour, its pretty pigmented too. Its a colour I like using to brighten up a look, because its just so bright and cheery. Can you just see the shine? Better put on your sunnies so you don’t get blinded LOL!
The colour is very pretty and I think most of you will like this one. Its sweet, its pink, its shiny and its shimmery. Its everything a lipgloss should be :)
Pros: High shine and shimmer, Fairly pigmented, Not sticky, Not thick, Not drying
Cons: Lightly scented
As I’ve observed, these lipglosses have been around a while by now. I’ll bring you swatches of Rose Pearl soon, which is another pretty colour. If you’ve tried these, and I’m sure you have, which was your favourite colour? :) I’ve seen this on promotion at a few pharmacies so its a good time to pick it up, unlike I who picked mine up at full price *facepalm*
