Revlon's ColorBurst Lipstick in Carnation

It's not secret that I'm a huge fan of Revlon and especially of their lipsticks BUT I have always just bought their Matte or Super Lustrous collection. One because they're amazing, two because I like my lipstick packaging to match in my lipstick slots and three because the ColorBurst lipsticks usually have some shimmer in there and I tend to avoid that.
I DO love this packaging it's a quilted design a lá Chanel so instantly my eyes widened and I love the block of the colour on top. Easy to see which I'd like to wear when they're stood up. I always love Revlon's packaging anyway.
I tried to catch the subtle blue shimmer in the lipstick but failed miserably, lol. It's a bright pink with a blue untertone and then some blue shimmer. You do notice it on the lips but only if you know what you're looking for!
It's in the colour Carnation and you can buy it here!

This lipstick is moisturising, non-greasy, vibrant... it's only downside for me is that it doesn't last too long. I went into town with my boyfriend for less than an hour... we browsed, got a Starbucks blend *which has a straw so...* and when we got back to the car about 50 minutes later... not a trace of it left!
It is £7.99 which is the higher end of the drugstore/highstreet make up scale but it's still just over half price of my beloved Illamasqua lipsticks so yes, it does fade quickly but you can apply it as much as you want at that price!
I do have my eye on a few more but this one is my perfect colour for now.


  1. This shade looks lovely :)
    I love the packaging on these lipsticks :D But strangely, although glossy, they dry out my lips in an instant!

    1. If it lasted longer than 5 seconds on me... I imagine it'd do the same lol


Thank you so much for the comment and I promise to reply as soon as possible!
Have a lovely day!
