Review, Swatch - Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss

This is an edited post.
I posted this a while ago but I just noticed the lip swatch pics are quite terrible.
Now it has been almost a year since I started this blog and I have gotten a little better at taking swatch pictures and capturing colors. so I thought I would do editing on some older posts.

Not everything edited would appear as new posts, but I wanted to feature this again since I find the texture and the color payoffs of this lipgloss line is quite perfect for the New York autumn. :)

Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in
Rosegold, Crystal Lilac, Peony  (clockwise)

*Revlon says
Lips that shine with killer color. This weightless gloss makes lips pop with 5X more shine than patent leather
(from Revlon website)

*My thoughts
I really enjoy these lipglosses.
However, would I buy more of these and get obsessed like I previously did with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses? Probably not.
They come in unique wearable colors and I love how they feel so comfortable on my lips where Super Lustrous ones peel sometimes.
Other than that, I still prefer Super Lustrous in every aspect - the shorter tube, the shape of applicator, the variety of colors, the finish, etc
Although they are great quality lipgloss range for the price, they are not killer colors  nor shine they 5X more than patent leather.  (I think I am allergic to any exaggerated number claim...-.-;;)
I think Revlon should have marketed these as moisturizing lip creme since they go on smoothly and the colors seem to be pigmented in general.


Crystal Lilac
Pale baby pink with violet shimmer
It works great with super smoked eyes.

Peachy pink with gold glitters
On me, the pink color comes out more which makes it more wearable for me.
This color looks very nice paired with golden pink blushes like Nars Orgasm and her dupes.

Pigmented gold beige packed with shimmer
It is a very versatile and office-appropriate color that would work for any skin tone.

Have you tried this range?
What is your favorite color? :)

Thanks for reading!

  1. I really like the Peony color! You have so many lip glosses! I think I have about five and I hate all of them lol.

  2. haha i am a recovered lipgloss addict! i used to keep buying lipglosses, but now i am more into lipsticks and lip tints.

  3. The swatches look beautiful! My favourite would be Crystal Lilac! :) I love how shimmery they look in indoor lightning!

  4. Peony is such a beautiful colour. It reminds me of NARS Orgasm on your lips a little!

  5. I love the super lustrous ones too, but they make my lips peel too =( Maybe i'll give these a try since you said these don't make your lips peel too much! Thanks for the review!

  6. it is a shame, isn't it?
    i used to have more than 20 super lustrous lipglosses. lol lol
    i so want to try those lip butters soon, though. i am dying of curiosity! ;p

  7. you are right on! people say peony is very comparable to orgasm and even better since it is not as frosty. it looks great peachy pink blushes. :)

  8. the shimmers in Crystal Lilac is highlighting kind. it is so pretty!
    i will try to capture better images next time. i usually get best lighting in the morning since my windows all face the east, but today i got up too late. ;p

    How nice that they're pigmented! I ought to try one out. Thanks for the swatches! The lighting looks great.

  10. thanks, Eva. :)
    there is really pigmented blue/purple LE shade that came out for the holiday. i might get that one as well.

  11. i like the peony color the most but when swatched, the rosegold and crystal lilac looked better on you ^^

  12. i would agree with you.
    i was surprised to see rosegold works for me though because warmer lip colors tend to look weired on me. ^-^

  13. strange! I went to local Rite Aid to get them and the only color available was fire and papaya. I got them both for BOGO sale and I really like the colors except the plastic taste :X!!!

  14. ah now you mention it, there is a slightly plastic-y taste to them. ;p
    papaya is a gorgeous shade!
    they clear out pretty fast whenever they are on sale although nowadays the main star of the line is their lip butter. ;)

  15. The peony is a beautiful shade, it's good to hear your thoughts on these, but Revlon still do some great lipglosses as you mentioned.

    Hope you're having a great weekend.

  16. I find these pretty comfortable to wear, too - I have Gold Dust, which is a pretty gold bronze shade.

  17. really nice post :) i love the shade peony, looks so nice! nice to here your opinion though! now following you - xxx

  18. ah i remember thinking it was very pretty on you when i saw your post! :)
    these are very comfortable on. i just wish they hugged my lips a little better..

  19. i agree with you. revlon still is my favorite lippie brand!
    i like peony a lot. such a pretty peachy pink shade. i think it's prettier than NARS orgasm lipgloss. ;)

  20. I'll need to try the superlustrous ones! I'm just now getting into lip gloss. They never packed a punch with me. I'm already a bland color, so i always needed a little punch.

  21. some of the super lustrous lipglosses are very pigmented but in general, colorburst is more pigmented and it goes like lip cream.
    if you like a little punch, try the brighter color in the colorburst range! :)

  22. thanks for adding you to your list!
    peony is my favorite as well. ;)

  23. I love these! They've got to be my have drugstore lipgloss.

    Ploy <3 x

  24. they are great for the price, i agree! :)

  25. ooh crystal lilac is such a pretty pink! love it!!

  26. the shimmer in this color is special! so fine and feminine. ;)
