So how do you know that you and a lipstick are just meant to be?
a) When you’re on a tight budget, and spending $25 on a lipstick seems a little frivolous;
b) you’ve fallen in love with a particular shade and;
c) on the fourth visit to the Revlon display’s, in many a department store, it’s reduced to $8!!! Who could refuse!
What I love: a sexy bright shade, which I’d describe as a orange red rather than a coral. It looks great just slicked with its luscious shiny finish, or blot and powder it to give a more matte day time look. The ColorBurst line is fast becoming my favourite mid-priced lipstick, glides on silky smooth and is not too heavy, is really moisturising and seems to have good colour pay-off. The packaging is chic, in a matte quilted black case, and I personally really like how the end of the tube is the shade of the lipstick – makes it much easier to find in my drawer when I’m in a hurry.
What I don’t love: although you get a couple of hours of wear from this lipstick, due to the bold nature of the shade, it really needs more regular touch ups. It definitely wont last through a coffee, let alone lunch, so be prepared for some up-keep to ensure this statement shade works for you all day. Also be sure to line your lips when using this shade as, like most bright shades, you may end up with a little bleeding outside the lip line.
I really love this lipstick, it ticks all my boxes – sexy, shiny, bold and cheap!
