Revlon Lipsticks and Glosses

Today I've got some swatches for you of some Revlon lip products that I tried out. First up we have the Colorburst Lipsticks, which I believe originally were launched last year in a variety of colors. Switzerland has a rather small selection of available colors, but I think in North America there are many more shades available. They go on smooth, creamy and feel comfortable on the lips. My favorites are the brighter shades, I'm not 100% sold on the nude shades.

Next up I have the Colorburst Lipglosses for you, which are sparkly glosses that come in a long square tube, again in lots of colors. Some have compared these to MAC Dazzleglasses but I don't think that comparison is all together accurate as the shimmer and sparkle in these glosses are sort of one-dimensional and not as multi-colored as the MAC Dazzleglasses. My favorite from these is probably Strawberry, which would be a great summer shade. They are overall very shimmery and sparkly, so if you prefer a cream finish, I would skip these.

Lastly I have a few of the Revlon Lipglosses to swatch for you. These are a regular cream finish without any sparkles or shimmer to them, and are quite well-pigmented. These would be great on their own, or layered over lipsticks. I really love all three of these shades!

My main gripe with all these lip products from Revlon is the taste and smell of their products. They just don't have a nice smell or flavor, they sort of remind me of old-ladyish perfume mixed with a sickly sweet scent. Revlon products are very pricey in Switzerland, comparable to MAC prices, and for that price, I just wish their lip products tasted better. The lipsticks are passable, but the glosses taste like flavored plastic.

Still, the quality of the lipsticks and some of the glosses (especially the more colorful ones) are pretty good, and I can't wait to wear some of these colors especially for spring and summer.

  3. I think Revlon lipsticks are really good quality, they keep lips hydrated and colours are really bright. From the ColorBurst line I've got Fuchsia and it's really amazing!

  9. hat wohl wenig mit dem post zu tun, aber muss es dir trotzdem sagen! ich habe gerade ein deutsches schminktutorial von dir gesehen und war so verblüfft, dachte du wärst amerikanerin oder aus GB. Freue mich dass du meine sprache sprichst und ich dir kommentare machen kann ohne lang die passenden englischen worte zu finden! (: ich liebe deine schminktipps aber habe leider nicht die richtigen augen um mich genauso hübsch zu machen. und das mit den augenbrauen funktioniert auch nicht so richtig. :D ich warte schon wieder sehnsüchtig auf neue nageltuts weil du einfach die perfekten designs hast die man acuh auf kurzen nägeln anweden kann. (: danke dass du mein leben mit deinen interessanten posts bereicherst! (:

  13. Love watching your videos. My grandfather was born in Bern, Switzerland and moved to the United States when he was about 4 years old. I love watching anything about Switzerland. I live in Rochester, NY and look forward to watching and reading your Blogs/Vlogs. Thanks for all the time you put into your videos. I especially enjoyed your "bloopers" at the end. It really shows we are all human and make mistakes and flubs. Really enjoy everything you do. You remind me of my 28 year old daughter, Kira. Very talented and creative.

  21. Revlon is expensive in Brunei too. I have a huge craving for a lot of their products especially the lip products. The nude colours are so tempting~~

  22. I recently bought one of the revlon lipsticks at kmart for $2.42. They were having a clearance sale, I wish I could have bought more, but I didn't have enough money and needed to get other things.

  23. you are right about the smell/taste.. the colors are great too.. i guess its a good alternative if you dont want to spend too much

  24. I have the soft nude one. I love it, but I find that I need a bit more color on it so I add a pink lip gloss on top. Come to think of it I'm gonna get Blush the color looks perfect.
