Revlon's New Colorburst Lipstick

Hello Ladies,

This morning I received a parcel that I wasn’t expecting – to my surprise inside was a selection of Revlon’s new ColorBurst Lipsticks. Revlon ColorBurst Lipsticks ‘provides a luxurious, virtually weightless, high-impact color and offers a unique shade range allowing women to make a statement without saying a word’. Revlon uses ‘Elasticolor’ technology to distribute rich colour pigment evenly over the lips and allows the formula to move comfortably with lips – like a Second skin!

Rich, high-impact colour with a Feather light feel, these lipsticks are the ultimate in performance and luxury. ColorBurst is already causing a storm on the catwalks at New Yrk and London fashion week, and Hollywood A-lister Jessica Alba has called Revlon ColorBurst in Plum her ‘new lipstick obsession’ and also wore the shade ‘Blush’ at her Valentine’s Day film premier.

Revlon have also collaborated with Antonio Berardi to design a limited edition and exclusive ColorBurst Tote Bag which is a true collector’s item.

My lips are on the dry side and usually very chapped, I find that most lipsticks look terrible on me, and emphasize the dryness by clinging to the dry areas. These lipsticks are gorgeous and feel conditioning on my lips as the lipsticks contain moisturisers and Sweet Almond Oil. One swipe gave rich colour, which was highly pigmented, weightless and with a glossy finish.

Here are some swatches:

From Left to Right: ‘Plum’; ‘Coral’; ‘True Red’; ‘Blush’; ‘Fuchsia’.






I can see where Revlon have got their inspiration from high-end brands such as Chanel and Tom Ford. I love the Chanel-like packaging with the quilted effect and also the etching of ‘Revlon’ on the lipstick itself is very much like the Tom Ford lipsticks which retail for £35 each! The Revlon lipsticks retail at £7.99 each so we can now all own a piece of luxury without the expensive price tag.

The Revlon ColorBurst Lipsticks are launched in the UK on 2nd June 2010 and are available in 12 Shades. Will you be purchasing?

  7. Everytime I'm near a Revlon stand I ALWAYS swatch Soft Nude and Fuchsia, but I still haven't bought them yet! Mostly because of the ridiculous Aussie prices.
