Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Mauve

23 Feb

I bought this at Rite Aid when it was 40% off for my birthday in 2010. I love the packaging and I love how Revlon designs their products (a product doesn’t have to look cheap to be cheap!!) I like the design on it that also functions as a good grip. Another good thing to know about this lipstick is that it is sturdy and the cap probably won’t come off in your purse!

What it claims:

-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, including 5 new shades!

My Review:

I would describe this as a pigmented cream with no shimmer but it has an almost gloss-like finish to it which is its fault in my opinion because that makes it not long-lasting at all. It lasts about an hour to an hour and a half on my lips and comes right off when I eat and drink and leaves that lipliner look that annoys me. If you don’t mind reapplying constantly then you will like it. It is very comfortable and you can’t even feel it on your lips. Since it doesn’t last long at all I will not repurchase it. Overall I rate this product a 3 out of 5 for the color, feel and packaging.
