Revlon Colourburst Lipstick Review, Swatches and LOTD
Revlon Colourburst Lipstick – Strawberry
Revlon is one of the oldest and first brands I encountered when buying cosmetics. They have a wide range of makeup with prices ranging from just 1k to really affordable ones. Today I’ll be reviewing a lipstick here which is the Revlon Colouburst Lipstick.
Product Claims: Unique elasticolor technology hugs lips with an explosion of color that feels virtually weightless. Innovative pigments provide immediate, release of rich color on lips in just one swipe. Contains film-forming polymers for longer wear and skin conditioning properties. Moisturizers and antioxidants including sweet Almond oil, improve lip texture.
Price: INR 390 for 3.7 gm
Package Description: It comes with no box packaging per se and there was just a plastic film on the lipstick which had to be removed. I don’t really appreciate such packaging because the plastic film is likely to get torn off easily damaging the product itself. The bullet is however of a good quality and I like the textured packaging.
Product Details: The texture of this product is creamy and it glides on smoothly on the lip. This lipstick doesn’t have a matte finish at all and it feels more moisturizing on the lips. It has a very peculiar chemical like smell which sadly I hate a lot.
My experience with the product: I first went to the Revlon store with already a product in mind. However, I was shown these lipsticks and seeing the affordable pricing I decided to go for a pink shade. This lipstick as mentioned above smells very chemical like which is why it puts me off and I don’t prefer using this lipstick frequently. The bullet of this lipstick has a textured detailing which I found quite unique and the cap is sturdy making this lipstick travel-friendly. Although this lipstick is pigmented, it doesn’t give an opaque finish in one swipe. One thing I didn’t find very appealing is that this lipstick bleeds terribly and goes way beyond the lip line making it look weird. I tried everything I could to stop it from bleeding but sadly nothing works. Since this lipstick has a creamy formula, it lasts for about 3-4 hours without a heavy meal and fades off from the centre leaving my lips looking uneven.
Strawberry is a bright fuchsia pink colour that would suit fair to wheatish skin tones. It is not a very unusual shade, but I love pink lipsticks and I generally pick such shades when I don’t see many other good options to choose from. Overall, I was not impressed with the formulation of this lipstick and honestly I find a lot of other brands having amazing formula at almost the same price as this one. Sadly, I really don’t see any perks of buying this lipstick unless you really prefer such texture and are okay with the lasting power.
