Colorburst Lipgloss

One of my favorite glosses

Revlon ColorBurst Lipglosses can be found at most major drug stores including Walmart and Walgreens. Depending on where you buy, these glosses range from $6-$8. They come in 15 gorgeous shades. Most do contain shimmer, but some are more shimmery than others.
If you haven't figured it out already, Revlon is one of my favorite beauty brands right now. Their products are pretty consistent and reliable, and they maintain good quality for the price point.
They have improved the packaging as well, and I really like the packaging the used for the ColorBurst Lipglosses and Lipsticks. It is very chic and functional. A new feature in this gloss is the applicator. I couldn't tell if I liked it at first, but after using it a couple times I definitely got the hang of it. It is a sponge applicator with a twist; it its flexible and double sided. The flexibility of the tip allows the gloss to apply smoothly over every contour of your lips, preventing a glossy mess.
I am very pleased with this formula as well. These glosses have a light vanilla scent that isn't too noticeable and does not linger. And for those of you who hate sticky lipglosses, these aren't sticky AT ALL. They are very smooth and almost gel-like, but not sticky. They are very moisturizing, but the color doesn't bleed either. However, if you are looking for a full coverage, opaque lipgloss, these aren't it. They are semi-sheer, because they still impart a good amount of color and they do provide some coverage.
The shimmer varies from shade to shade, and with the two shades I purchased, the shimmer looks lovely. It isn't grainy or gritty shimmer either, just a smooth gloss here.
Rosegold is a bronzed rosey shade with gold flecks of shimmer.
Papaya is a bright coral with pinky-peach flecks of shimmer.
Both shades an intense amount of shine! I'm lovin the amount of shine in these glosses, and the shine lasts for a good while. On average, these glosses lasted for 2 1/2 hours, less if you eat or drink.
Overall, I definitely recommend checking this lipglosses out. They are now one of my favorite lipglosses, and I plan on grabbing a few more shades. I'm really obsessed with Papaya right now because I love love love corals in the summer!

Great Product

I really like the pigmentation of this product, it's very nice and true to color. I could live without the smell, but for the price I don't mind too much =)

beautiful color, non sticky!

I have the color "Papaya" I love that this lipgloss is sooo pigmented and not sicky at all! It lasts for a decent amount of time, not super long but it doesn't disappear immediately. I love it! When I run out, I'll definitely buy it again!

Gorgeous shine/sparkle/color!

I received my free Target Beauty Bag this week and in it was a sample of this lipgloss. I actually was going to just through this out - because I hate little packets of lip gloss samples.. it's always messy and there's barely any product to try out. But, I thought I'd share the sample with you guys.. So I tried it out on it's own and on top of a hot pink lipstick. I'm actually surprised that I liked it - I might even get this. The gloss wasn't horribly sticky, it had a normal gloss scent - nothing fragrant or overpowering, and the color on it's own is very wearable for me.
I've never been a big Revlon fan, their products rarely WOW me - this lipgloss though - WOW WOW WOW!! I love it so much, I plan on getting every shade I can get my hands on!
O and another great thing about it - it lasts a long time. Whenever I wear lip products, I constantly press my lips together, I know I shouldn't be... but even with me messing with my lips all day - this gloss lasted about 2-3 hrs without needing a touchup! AWESOME!!


I love love these lip glosses! They're pigmented well and make my lips feel smooth. The color pay off is great, and they're inexpensive as well. The packaging is simple but I really like it. Favorite drug stores lip glosses.

I bought one in hopes that it was a dupe for Nars Turkish Delight. It was in fact a dupe but it was too sticky and it doesn't last. I also don't like too much shimmer in my lip products.

Could pass as a liquid lipstick, Amazing!

The Revlon Colorburst lipgloss is in a plastic packaging, with a quilted-effect on two sides of the four sided cap, Which twists off to reveal a doefoot applicator. I have two of the sixteen shades, which is a large variety for lipgloss shades from the drugstore, Fire and Sunset Peach. Fire is the gloss I'll be focusing the review on, but really briefly I'll explain what Sunset Peach is. Sunset Peach is a sheer coral gloss with a subtle shimmer, and has decent lasting time, about 2 hours before having to reapply on it's own, 4 hours with a lipstick and lip liner underneath.
Fire is an amazing pigmented gloss, An opaque bold red color. On the lips it seems like a lipstick on it's own, or a liquid lipstick as I would categorize it. It is not sticky at all, and the texture is great on my lips. It does wear off within 2 hours, with or without lipstick or lip liner underneath, But it is still a great product. A 5 star worthy product.

DISCLAIMER: I bought both products with my own money, and was not given the products for free for purpose of reviewing, nor were they a gift of any sort.

I have the papaya one, actually I bought it by accident but its the best lipgloss I´ve ever used! Its looks amazing when you combine it with lipstick too and its not sticky like other ones, the brush its very soft; also, the packpaging is really cute

Great quality

Revlon makes great lip and nail products. This lipgloss has a very good texture, and it lasts about 2 hours on my lips. it has micro-shimmer in it with a semi opaque and a glossy finish. The packaging reminds me a little bit to the Chanel Lévres Scintillantes Glossimer.

Great Color!

I have this in both Bordeaux and Sizzle and I love both shades. The pigment is really rich, and the consistency is great. While it's not extremely long-lasting, it doesn't smear or melt off like some lipglosses do.
