Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks Swatches and Review
These come in a variety of colours, there are apparently 20 available. We finally got them in Canada recently. They are on for $5.24 at Rexall/Pharma Plus this week during their 50% off lip products sale. I picked up Soft Nude and Baby Pink while I was in the US last month, and got several others during the sale.
Personally, I part that I like most about these is that you don't have to lather up your lips with chapstick before you apply these, which I have to do with most lipsticks because they are so thick and drying. These just glide on, the nude one was a bit drying, but the rest were all buttery and smooth. Which gets to my one negative about these, they are so buttery and creamy that they can break easily. I feel like I have to keep these in the fridge or something, when I was swatching them they looked like they were going to break, so be careful, don't twist the bullet all the way up, just a small amount that you need, as it can break easily if you have it all the way up.
I know people think these lipsticks are expensive, they retail for about $10 CAD, and I wouldn't have bought that many for that price, but since they were 50% off why not? These are like the luxe lipstick of drugstore right now, they are really nice. But, I also bought two of the regular lustrous lipsticks and I must say I like the formulation of those a bit more. I will do a complete swatch and review of those soon. They aren't as creamy and more solid-like if that makes sense, I bought Just Enough Buff and Berry Haute (which is gorgeous).
What do you think of these Revlon Colorburst lipsticks? Which ones do you have? I accidently left out Peach from this line, I will include it when I do the nude comparisons... so I actually have 8 (Baby Pink and Soft Nude will be included in the blog giveaway!) ;)
