Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick Review

Happy Saturday! :D

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!

Have you all recovered from the excitement of Royal Wedding Friday?

But, of course, there are other things going on in the world besides that... I also want to send my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the devastating tornado in Alabama. I know there are many things we can all do to help the victims recover from their loss.


For today, I want to share with you guys my new favorite red lipstick.

Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in True Red


- Instant burst of rich, true color with a featherlight feel

- Elasticolor technology provides immediate color release and hugs lips with a burst of weightless color that feels like a second skin

- Available in 20 gorgeous shades, with 5 new shades!

Expert tips: Apply directly to lips for beautiful, high impact color. Can be worn with or without lipliner.


This is my new favorite red lipstick because the color is absolutely beautiful! And it's long lasting - when I wore it, I ate lunch and I drank soda, and the color was still there - I just had to retouch, of course. You can use a lipliner if you want, but if you don't have one, it's okay.

I also love the look of the lipstick itself - it's very sleek. I love the "quilted" look, and it's really helpful that you can see which color it is from the cap - no need to turn it over to read which one it is, no need to open each lipstick. :)

You can wear lip gloss in a similar shade with it if you want, but if not, it's also okay because it already has quite a glossy finish.

Another good thing about this is it's very affordable. At Ulta, they are sold for $8.99. They are probably even cheaper if you buy them at your favorite drugstore, like CVS, Walgreens, or Rite Aid.

I really have nothing negative to say about this because you get a high quality lipstick for a low price, and I think that's amazing!

True Red

The description from their website says there are 20 colors, but there's really 21:

icy nude, petal, pink sugar, candy pink, cherry ice, lilac, mauve, plum, baby pink, carnation, fucshia, soft rose, raspberry, hazelnut, chocolate, rosy nude, soft nude, peach, coral, true red, and crimson

So many beautiful colors to choose from! I definitely want to get other shades! :D

Have you tried Revlon ColorBurst? Which shade did you get, and what do you think of it?

Is it something you might want to try?

  1. How cool..but I go for more brown are pales I guess.

  2. I never wear lipstick, but I have been loving everyones red lips lately. Perhaps I'll give it a try!

  3. I recently moved to my new blog I just want to thank you for the wonderful comments you've posted to my old blog, xoxo Miki

  4. pretty! i have this in one of the pink shades, so nice.

  5. I also love this kind of lipstick, I have a very pretty pink one!!


  6. I love this shade! I've been looking for a long-lasting red!

  7. ahh i'm a lipstick-a-holic. MAC's my fav :)

  8. I tried Mauve, I absoloutely loved it! The only con was that it melts easily and gets really soft so it began to get messy. If they could change the formuala to prevent it from doing that I would love it all the way!

  9. I caught the wedding fever too for the weekend It was a nice change from all the usual stuff one sees on TV.

  10. Great. I am always looking for good red lipsticks or lipglosses. I just found one from Covergirl which is amazing.

  11. I really want like a bright red lipstick! it's so eye catching for photos I think! I'd be too afraid to wear it out due to it smudging when I eat or drink something though

  12. hey guys! thanks for dropping by! :D

  13. I like this line of lipsticks!:D I'm wearing Coral right now!:D

    Thanks for the swatch and review, Mimi!:D
