Since my change of hair colour, Emma Stone has become my new beauty icon and, after seeing her look A-mazing (hehe see what I did right thar!) in a berry lip at the Crazy, Stupid, Love world premiere, I’ve decided she can do no wrong. Luckily I hunted through my lipstick drawer and found that I already had the perfect shade to try this look for myself!

What I love: I’ve reviewed this formula before in the shades Coral  and Blush so I wont go into to much detail in this review. One of the things I didn’t like about the Coral shade was that it wasn’t really what I would expect from a coral, but there is no doubt that this one is definitely a true raspberry. I don’t find it to be as glossy as the coral shade but the deep, rich colour and beautiful formula are to die for. This range of lipsticks has definitely got my vote for chic packaging and I think they are good value for the price.

What I don’t love: I can’t put my finger on anything that I don’t love about this lipstick, except maybe for the fact that it does suffer from a little colour bleed, but it’s nothing that a little lip liner wont fix. The only other thing I could pick on is that it isn’t long lasting but the depth and richness of colour certainly make up for it.

I have three shades in this lipstick and love them all, however this shade is particularly beautiful and well worth a place in anyone’s makeup collection.

Review: Revlon ColorBurst #080 Coral

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!
