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 Glossover



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.
