Lipstick Loving: Revlon Colorburst in Rosy Nude, Fuchsia and Raspberry

Revlon ColorBurst lipsticks are getting a lot of lovin’ on beauty blogs lately, including this one. I couldn’t resist picking up a few more over the last few weeks since Soft Rose entered my lipstick rotation. Here is a look at Rosy Nude, Fuchsia, and Raspberry.

Rosy Nude is a pretty neutral. It is a bit darker than it appears in this lighting so I would say that as a nude colour, this would be better suited to medium to darker skin tones. It’s one of those easy colours to just slap on and feel instantly sophisticated. I haven’t seen this one get a lot of attention but it is definitely worth a look in my opinion.

Raspberry is a gorgeous alternative if you’re looking for a ‘softer’ red. It is very wearable and has a nice sheen. I think this could suit many many skintones.

Fuchsia is a colour you wear if you’re looking to make a statement. It is bold and beautiful! It adds instant brightness to your face. It has more blue-undertones to it and is on the cooler side but I think still very wearable for warm-toned girls like me.

Overall, I like the Revlon Colorburst lipsticks. The sleek black packaging is a step above other drug store brand lipsticks, and the formulation overall is nice. It is creamy enough and has good lasting power. That said, while these are nice, I wouldn’t classify them as Holy Grail status for me – this continues to be held by Chanel Rouge Coco’s Mademoiselle. 
Have you found your “Holy Grail” lipstick?

    I love these, I am using these everyday! 🙂 Thanks for the lipswatch, I've been lemming for more shades


    I'm currently loving Soft Rose! It brightens up my face without making me look too made up.

    These lipsticks are definitely some good DS lippies 😀

    I need to get me some Revlon lippies…what colour would you recommend for darker skin tones?? My HG lip product is MAC hug me with cork lip liner…match made in heaven

  10. Lipstick Rules says

    @Imo: Try Soft Rose or Rosy Nude for a more understated lip, and Fuschia for a bright pop of pink! Let me know if you get any!!

    @Khymm: I was tempted by Peach!
    @XOvintage: I agree!
