Revlon Papaya ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine

Revlon Papaya ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a semi-opaque coral-orange with soft white and gold micro-shimmer and a high-shine glossy finish. MAC Star Quality came to mind, because of its vibrancy, but it’s very pink in comparison. MAC Whoops! is much darker. It’s a lot like Hourglass Nectar, which doesn’t have any shimmer and is a touch more opaque (but doesn’t apply as evenly). MAC Exxxhibitionist differs a lot in texture, but the color is just a bit lighter. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is less vibrant and slightly pinker. MAC Double Dare is redder.

This formula is described as giving “weightless color with vivid, mirror-like shine” with “rich color with a weightless feel” and contains “moisturizers and anti-oxdants such as sweet almond oil and vitamin E.” The pigmentation is lovely with this shade–not quite opaque but gives a lot of coverage for a gloss and doesn’t look or feel heavy (as really opaque glosses can sometimes look and feel). The thin, non-sticky lightweight texture makes it comfortable to wear and slightly moisturizing. Papaya wore for four hours when I tested it.

It comes with a paddle-shaped applicator, which is a little large and long, so I could see it being more difficult to use on thinner lips. On my lips, it was fine, but I do have fuller lips and it more than covered mine. This is scented with sweetened vanilla, but for whatever reason, the scent disappears after a month or two once I’ve opened it.
