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.

Guerlain Rose Piquant Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Rose Piquant Rouge G Lipstick ($48.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a a soft yellow-toned pink with a soft, frosted finish and a fair amount of shine. It makes my lips look pinker and shinier. Dior Pinky Mauve is very similar, slightly yellower. Estee Lauder Mauve Mirage looks very close, just more opaque. Dior Pearly Pink is darker. Chanel Charme is also similar with more of a frosted finish than a glossy one.

It has a fair amount of pigmentation, but there is a lot of translucency. It doesn’t apply as evenly as other Rouge Gs do, though it’s consistent with the other three shades from spring. It doesn’t have the same feel or look as the Rouge G line–it’s much more like the Brilliant formula, because it has a lot more slip and a glossier finish. The richer, more opaque color and creamier consistency is missing. It only wears about two and a half hours on me, and I normally see at least four, often six, with this formula. I’m still bummed over how different these spring shades turned out to be from the rest of the formula.

The texture is soft and very slick; it glides on fairly easily, but it reaches that level of slip where the color moves around too readily and causes uneven color deposit.  It’s moisturizing, but it doesn’t seem as moisturizing as many other shades of Rouge Gs have been. I don’t know if it’s because it wears off so much more quickly that gives an illusion of lesser hydration.

Beautiful Beginnings with Tarte

Beautiful Beginnings with Tarte

What was the first Tarte product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Tarte product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I had never tried Tarte before having the blog, so the first product I reviewed on the blog was Tarte’s Purse Your Lips Lipgloss Clutch back in 2008. I loved that you were able to get so many glosses to try, though they were fairly tiny! Next, I tried an eyeshadow palette which was so-so. I’m still kind of waiting to fall in love with Tarte you could say. I do like their new Amazonian Blushes, even if they don’t live up to their over-the-top 12-hour claim.
