Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks Review with Swatches

On a recent trip to Big Lots I spotted a big display of Revlon Lipsticks (you can check out the display here), most of which were the Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks that are currently available at all general drugstores.  I was amazed to find these lipsticks for an unbelievable price of $2.00, because they are usually priced at $8.99 each (although when on sale you can get them for anywhere between $4-$7).  I've been wanting to try these lipsticks for the longest time, but they were just way to expensive for me.


Imagine my excitement when I saw these lipsticks at Big Lots...Let's just say I acted like a kid in a candy store!!! I went a little bit overboard when I saw the display, I pretty much purchased all the neutrals to pink colors that I could find, and left behind the colors that I don't usually wear as much, such as bright reds to deep browns. I believe there are between 15-20 different colors in the collection, and I purchased 9 of them, at $2.00 each the total was $18!

I read a lot of wonderful reviews on these lipsticks from some of my favorite beauty bloggers, and I am so glad that I finally got my hands on these lipsticks because I simply adore them!

PROS:
- Formula feels very light weight.
- Leaves a moisturizing and hydrating feeling on the lips.
- Glide on very smoothly and effortlessly.  
- The color selection is fabulous; anyone of any color, race, ethnicity can find a match!
- Top of packaging conveniently has the lipstick color (as well as labels on the bottom).
- Majority of the colors I selected have awesome color payoff and are very pigmented.
- Colors are very build-able and you can achieve a bolder and brighter look with additional applications. 

CONS:
- They only last about 2-3 hours max!
- Some of the colors are very sheer and hardly show up on the lips.

Overall I am in love with the Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks, the pigmentation is fabulous, I love the super sleek packaging, the formula is like no other lipstick I've tried before, and they simply make my lips feel super soft and silky!! My favorite is 70 Nude Soft because it is such a lovely soft nude color; my least favorite and the only one I am disappointed in is 06 Pink Sugar it is very sheer on my lips and actually barely shows up; other than that I love all the colors I purchased and can see myself applying different colors for different occasions and with different outfits!!

  4. I cannot believe you found them for $2!!! I would have bought that many too. I have one of them and I would agree, they don't last very long.

    1. Arielle, I couldn't believe they were $2.00 either; glad to know there are others out there with the same lipstick "addiction" LOL

  5. Wow, $2!! And I felt good finding them for $5 on a big sale... :)

    I have several of these, and I like the colors I have - though I did steer clear of the super-light ones.

    I'll shoot a new craving your way: Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balmstain. They're like a drugstore version of Tarte's Lipsurgence, but they last longer and have better color payoff. They're on 40% off sale at Rite-Aid through June 2. So there's another tip for you... sale price for them will be $4.50 apiece, so they're not as inexpensive as these were...but they're a combination of lip stain and balm. Stay clear of the lightest colors, which will have the "barely showing up" problem. My favorites are Smitten and Cherish. Romantique is just barely too orange for me. I've also tried Darling, Crush, Lovesick, Precious, and Honey. Those last two are nice, but they're very soft near-nude colors, so get those only for the "balm" rather than any actual color payoff.

  9. I need to head to Big Lots!!!!!! It's been a while since I've been by there, too. It has changed locations, so I've been lazy about going on the other side of town. But with such goodies, it's definitely worth it!

    I've only tried Baby Pink, but I want Carnation and Pink. The Baby Pink is just too sheer for me, and I always have to wear it with lipgloss and a lipliner.

    Thanks for sharing all of these swatches, girlie! Awesome post!

    1. Hi girly! I know exactly what you mean, my closest Big Lots is still quite a drive away so I hardly go there! Baby Pink is a pretty color but it is a little on the sheer side; carnation would look so beautiful on you! Let me know if you end up getting it!
