Review:-Revlon colorburst lipstick

Revlon describes these lipsticks as an instant burst of rich colour with a feather light feel
I think they retail for about £8 in the UK and are available in 8 shades
I really like these lipsticks the packaging is very smart and sophisticated and the top of the lipsticks are colour co ordinated to the actual shade of the lipstick inside the bullet.

I really feel that these lipsticks are the perfect and more affordable dupe of the recently launched Bobbi brown rich lip Color which are somewhere near the £15 mark
So you can buy two of these for the price of 1 bobbi brown lipstick
and at the time that I am posting this Boots are running a buy 2 get 3rd free on Revlon cosmetics 
so hurry if you want to buy 2 or three of these.


Colours Swatched are 
Baby pink
Carnation
Fuschia
Coral
Peach
Raspberry
True Red
Crimson 


The first colours I thought I would get are nude and baby pink after seeing swatches of these shades on Amiras beauty blog who also shares a love of nude lip shades
however nude did not make it to the UK :(
but worry not I managed to get one at an increased price directly from the USA
from the UK stock I bought 'peach' which is actually a light orange.

I have been really bad I took these pictures when the lipstick launched 
but I hope you will forgive me because I have put them up now 

There are two other colours available in the UK now 
these are :-
'Nude blush' and 'Rose'

and i think another 7 new shades in USA
Petal
Pink Sugar 
Candy Pink
Cherry Ice
Lilac
Mauve
Plum

I would be tempted to pick up a pink shade from the UK collection but I already have the Bobbi brown rich lip color in 'mod pink' which I have already blogged about.

I definitely like carnation, nude blush, baby pink from the UK collection so these are the three shades I would pick up if I bought them in the offer from boots. 

And from the USA my recommendations would be petal and pink sugar from the online swatches that Revlon have provided on their websites but any experienced makeup buyer will know that these can be totally off!

I hope you like this post 
I would love to know your thoughts and whether you have picked up any of these lipsticks or your recommendations for any other lipstick you think that I should have in my collection.

Thanx for stopping by
