Revlon Fire ColorBurst Lipgloss
Revlon Fire ColorBurst Lipgloss ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, bright red with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It was fully opaque on the lips, and it had a lovely, high-shine finish. The consistency wasn’t sticky, not too thick or too thin, and applied evenly without settling into lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours. I couldn’t think of anything truly comparable to this in terms of opacity and finish. NARS Hollywoodlawn (LE, $26.00) is sheerer. MAC Totally Fab (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. Chanel Exces (P, $32.00) is sheerer. See comparison swatches.
Revlon Orchid ColorBurst Lipgloss ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a neutral-cool, light-medium pink with lots of lighter pink and pale gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a high-shimmer finish–almost frosted but the shimmer is fine enough that it doesn’t reach full-on frost or metallic. It had the same lightweight, comfortable, non-sticky texture.. It wore well for three hours. L’Oreal Pucker-Up Pink (LE, $7.99) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Trashed (P, $19.00) is less shimmery. NARS Candy Says (LE, $26.00) is similar. MAC Floating Lotus (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.
