Revlon Sunset Peach ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine

Revlon Sunset Peach ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine

Revlon Sunset Peach ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a semi-sheer peach-orange gloss with golden peach shimmer. The color is fairly sheer, so it gives a browner, warmed-up look to my natural lip color along with a fair dosage of shimmer and glossy shine. MAC Natural Flare is more orange–this is more like how the shade would look like if it had been opaque. Burberry Cameo has a much more opaque peach base. Dior Apricot Cloche has more shimmer.

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 problem with this gloss is really the pigmentation, which is not what one would expect given claims of “killer color.” (I will also be reviewing Papaya, which is much more opaque, after I test out the wear, but on that aspect, not all shades in the formula are like this one.) I reviewed Strawberry previously, which was definitely more pigmented. The texture is thin, non-sticky, and is lightly moisturizing at best. It wasn’t drying, but it wasn’t hydrating for me. The sheerness of Sunset Peach didn’t lend itself to lengthened wear; it managed to stay on for just around two hours.

It’s packaged in a thin plastic tube with Revlon’s quilted pattern on the black cap with a clear tube. It holds a good amount of gloss–a little over the average. The applicator is a paddle-shaped sponge, which is a little on the lengthy side. On my fuller lips, it wasn’t difficult to use, but I could see it being cumbersome on thinner lips. It has a faint sweet vanilla scent, but the scent doesn’t last very long–every tube I’ve had longer than two months no longer has any scent.

The two major drawbacks to this gloss were the lack of pigmentation (because it's supposed to be a pigmented formula) and short wear time (two hours)--if you are looking for a sheerer gloss and don't mind frequent reapplication, then it's worth a look.

  1. I found that the lighter shades of ColorBurst Lipgloss don’t preform as well and the pale one all look the same on my lips. The shades Strawberry and Papaya where excellent but you don’t need both.

    You look gorgeous in neutral makeup. Your face is absolutely glowing!!

    I think you are a brand snob  ! Nothing wrong with this gloss! i think your reviews depend on your mood!

    • I think I stated pretty clear what were the major problems with the gloss — sheerness because Revlon describes the formula as pigmented, which this particular shade isn’t, and poor wear time.  If you check out the Strawberry review, which I also linked above, you’ll see it received a much better score — because it was more pigmented and wore better.  What about all the times when I’ve given As to Maybelline, Wet ‘n’ Wild, and Milani?  The product needs to do what it says it’s supposed to do. I don’t care if it looks pretty – the color can be the hue of vomit, but if it does everything it’s supposed to, that’s what I care about. 

      • wendyclcl

         @Christine (Temptalia) I found that your rating of makeup product is very helpful for me.  I remember you gave A to Wet n wild eyeshadow, it is only less than $5, but very good quality and pigmented product for the price.  And you also gave F to the dior eyeshadow, even it is $60. After i discovered your blog and youtube channel, i search your rating and review, swatch before i go out to buy a makeup product.

        •  @wendyclcl Thanks Wendy! :) 

        • Angielove

           @Christine (Temptalia) Same here Christine! I love all the reviews you do, and find I can absolutely trust them! I also make sure to take the time to read what you have to say. On a product like this that promises a “heavy pigment” of color I wouldn’t normally bother to try it. However, I love sheer and glossy peach lipglosses- so I would consider buying it.

        • michelle

           @Christine (Temptalia)  i find your reviews unbiased with whatever brand you choose to review. i don’t think you’re a brand snob at all.

      • y

         @Christine (Temptalia) But you can clearly see that it is a light colour in the tube and it looks exactly the same on the lips, its a soft peach its not going to be a high pigmented peach on the lips.Plus it is not a solid color but with flecks of gold, less pigmentation is expected. I love these lip glosses , they impress me much like Chanel ones.

        • That’s not how I go about it – I’m not trying to create claims or make up stuff – I go by what the brand says.  That’s why I quoted Revlon above so that it’s clear that the words and description is coming from the brand.  The bottom line is Revlon says it should have “rich color.”  At some point, they reference the color intensity as “killer color.”   Peach can be opaque, but this one isn’t – and if you love sheer glosses, that’s totally fine.  That’s why I said if you like sheerer color and don’t mind frequent reapplication, it’s still worth checking out. Bottom line is I try to go by objective standards and go from there – reviews are inherently subjective, but at least by starting at an objective point of reference (what a brand claims), I start somewhere that I can point you to.
           
          Not to mention, lots of people buy products online – how are they to know it’s sheer in the tube from a promotional image/computer swatch?

        • I really urge you to read my previous review, because I liked the formula overall — it’s not very moisturizing for me, but the texture and consistency were fine. I linked to that review above!

      Christine is definitely not a brand snob.  I’ve been faithfully reading her blog since 2008 and I can assure you she reviews inexpensive cosmetics as well as expensive ones.  She always states what the label claims and further goes into an in depth review.  I think it’s funny that you say her reviews depend on her mood because I’ve never read anything that made me feel that way.  I think her reviews are top notch, unbiased, and quite simply professional.  Whether I shop online or in store, I’m someone that does read labels.  So if a brand is claiming a product to be pigmented and opaque and I get it home to find out it’s sheer, that’s a waste of money and not what I was expecting to buy.  She takes a lot into consideration before she rates and if you go back and read her other reviews, you’ll notice her rating system is consistent no matter the price of the product.

    I own about three or four of these, and I agree that they generally trend a lot more pigmented.  It’s quite pretty sheer, though, but I can see where the longevity could be frustrating.

  5. blahitslizz

    This looks like such a beautiful color, I need to try out some more of the Revlon lip products!

  6. TeeL0veBeauty

    Just dug this out of my lipgloss collection (I have this and Rose Gold) and I forgot how much I love it. In honor of you I’m wearing Sunset Peach (with a bit of NYX Tanned for a lil color)!  I don’t have any problems with color, I like the sheerness of it. I hope the C grade doesn’t deter others from buying it because it’s really not a bad lipgloss!

    •  @TeeL0veBeauty I don’t think I said it was bad – but it’s not what Revlon described it to be – Revlon says the range is pigmented, and some of the range is, but this shade isn’t! :( I thought I made it clear why but I guess not!

      • TeeL0veBeauty

         @Christine (Temptalia) You didn’t say it was bad at all. I just mean for people that don’t read the review and just look at the glossover grade may see a C and not be interested.

  7. I really love this lipgloss (I have it in a few other colors) so I may get this one even though it didn’t get a great review!

  8. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cat Cat G

    I’m such a sucker for glosses with gold peachy shimmer but I already have a million lol

  9. AcademicKitten

    I have to admit that I love the color. My lip glosses–even Chanel’s– have never lasted even 45 minutes, so I don’t mind the short wear time. And the sheerness is great.

  10. Bbail

    This reminds me of the lipgloss in the summer collection Philosophy put out two years ago called Beach Girls! I loved it, but that might have been partially because it smelled and tasted like Orange Soda, haha! I might check this out though, it’s pretty!

  11. Peggy Garrison Bayer

    Pretty and I love Revlon gloss!

  12. Hey Christine, is there any chance you could review Revlon’s colourburst fire lipgloss? 

  13. I own several of these Revlon lipglosses in different colors and love them. They’re not super sticky which is a big thing for me and the colors are always pretty. Staying power is the same as with any other lipgloss with the exception of Bare Minerals which stays on a long time. But the Revlon price is much cheaper than Bare’s.

  14. Brittany

    I see this shade at walmart all the time, and will definitely pick it up when my mac natural flare lipgloss runs out. To me I dont think it really lacks any pigmentation, after all it is a nude type of color and personally two hours is good im opinon cause lets face it- lipgloss never last that long. It will wear off even if your not drinking or eating. But I respect Christine’s review, if this how she feels about the lipgloss then thats her personal view on it and I have nothing against her for. So thank you Christine for taking the time to review this product for us! =)

    isn’t that pretty…so natural  i like it a lot

  16. Candace Marker

    This one made my lips bleed :(

  17. Liz

    First of all, I love the color on you.  I think it’s really pretty.  It doesn’t really look that sheer from the photos, but I’ll take your word for it.  As far as lowering the score because of longevity, I’m kind of conflicted.  I own Clinique Superbalm, L’oreal Infallible gloss, MUFE Lab Shine, MAC Lipglass, and Urban Decay.  Of all of those glosses, the only one with any staying power is the L’oreal, which is meant to last long.  Does any gloss except “long wearing” ones have staying power?  

    • Hey Liz!
       
      So when a brand *doesn’t* specify how long a gloss wears, I go by how long glosses last on average on me (and this average gets more and more fine-tuned with the more glosses I review).  For me, on average, glosses wear between three and four hours – deeper glosses 4-5, lighter glosses 3-4.  Stickier glosses last typically 4 hours, non-sticky 3 hours.  e.g. MAC Lipglass lasts 4 hours on average on me.  That’s how I assess longevity when a brand doesn’t say “it lasts six hours.”  For long-wearing glosses, the average wear is 6-8 hours, and I have the same process there.  Giorgio Armani’s Gloss d’Armani says 8 hours, lasts 6, which is really good for a gloss, but not the full 8 it says, which is a 25% miss.
      I’m definitely not looking for this gloss or any non-long-wearing gloss to wear for 6+ hours – if it hits 3-4, then that’s good.  4 hours is 9-10 points, depending on exactly how good it looks at four/how quickly the shine went first.  2 hours is about 1/2 as much as average, at best, 1/3 less, which is where 6/10 came from.
       
      I know some readers find glosses last an hour or two at most on their lips – but I go by what I experience and all that, you know? I don’t bite, chew, lick, or press my lips together.  I’m testing while I’m at my desk, taking photos, etc. I’m not talking to a classroom all day (because talking will speed up how fast your lip product wears off).  

  18. I really love this color with a peach lip pencil :>
