Review & Swatchfest: Revlon Colorburst Lip Glosses in Pink Ice, Bordeaux, Fire, and Sienna Sparkle



Plugging on with the reviews of the Revlon products I received as a finalist in the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards (you can vote in the 5th challenge until Monday!), next up are the Colorburst Lip Glosses. While some of these shades perform like an average gloss (not bad, just not unique), others are phenomenal in their coverage, color payoff, and staying power. 

In this particular post, Bordeaux and Fire are the two that wowed me with their performance. As the name implies, Bordeaux is a wine- tinged burgundy that has a hint of gold shimmer. The shimmer isn't enough make the texture gritty and, when worn, isn't really detectable at all. It's just enough to keep it from looking like a cream-finish gloss. The pigmentation is great and, while the glossy texture only stays for about 3 hours (as most glosses do), the color stains the lips for upwards of 5 hours. 

The same can be said for the shade Fire, except for the hint of shimmer. Fire is the creamiest, most opaque red lipgloss I have seen among drugstore brands. Another unique feature is that it doesn't sink into lip lines as so many completely cream-finish glosses tend to do. As far as reds go, fire leans more orange, but not much. 

Pink Ice is a barely-there milky, light pink shade with silver shimmer and a great color for a fresh-faced Summer look! Sienna Sparkle is a medium brown with red undertones and gold shimmer running throughout. Another great color for Summer night looks to complement a bronze smoky eye.
