Revlon is one of my favourite drugstore brands. The stuff they create has great quality, but still relatively affordable. Their ColorBurst Lip Butters were a raging hit. But, I recently discovered how great Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick is. I got this during the summer when London Drugs had a massive sale on Revlon lipsticks- $3.99 each. There weren’t many colors and stock left from the ColorBurst line, so I picked up a Peach colour, just cause I don’t have any peach lipsticks.
On the top of the lid, there is a the color of the lipstick. It looks like a salmon-coral to me at first, and not peach.
The packaging of the Revlon lipstick is lovely. It’s plastic, but it feels sturdy. The quilted pattern helps with gripping and it increases the aesthetic value of the lipstick. $3.99 for this, not bad at all. Let’s continue on the actual product!
It still looks like a salmony-coral color. When I think of peach, I think of a light, soft orange with a bit of pink. I wasn’t sure how peach it would look like on me.
I also really like the word REVLON inscribed on the lipstick. It’s similar to Chanel!
And when I tried the lipstick, I was instantly hooked on the color! The formula is creamy and weightless. I was a bit worried about the amount of orange it would look on my pigmented lips.
I love the absence of any glitter, shimmer, and shine. It looks natural, but it makes the lips moisturized and it brightens my complexion. At first, I was freaking out because I put a layer of Nivea lip balm and then the Revlon lipstick, and it was starting to accentuate lines and dryness. Look at myself couple minutes later, and everything sets in!
However- a con I found is the staying power. Because of it’s creamy texture, a napkin or sip of water, or talking too much leave the lips dry, and takes away the peachness of it. But I like the color of the Revlon lipstick enough to reapply again! Every 2-3 hours I got to check my mirror!
(PS- I had a bit of makeup on today, was trying different looks for my upcoming grad pictures! Would Peach be a good color?)
Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the price, ($3.99!) the packaging, the color payoff, and the moisturizing properties of Revlon ColorBurst lipstick. I’m tempted to try other colors, but I shall wait out for another sale…..or finish at least 3 of my current, overflow lipstick collection.
How do you do your peach lipstick?
