Review/Swatch: Revlon ColorBurst lipstick in Coral

I can't get enough of Revlon ColorBurst in Coral. It's my favorite lipstick at the moment.

shade: Coral. It's more of a red orange than coral in my opinion. It's bold without being too loud and scary. I even find it wearable during the day time. I've worn it to work and clients and my co-workers loves it.
packaging: I'm loving the packaging of the Color Burst line. The quilted pattern is classy and sophisticated.
texture: It has a smooth texture that glides on the lips without tugging. It's also non drying on my lips as long as I have a good lip balm underneath.
finish: It's satin with a slight gloss finish. I don't even need a lipgloss to enhance the shade. It's so pretty on it's own.
coverage: It has great pigmentation and I get a medium coverage with one layer.
longevity: I've worn it many times and it last about 3-4 hours before I notice a little fading. It's relatively good compare to other drugstore lipstick.
price: $8.99 or less. It's a bit expensive for a drugstore lipstick. I suggest to wait for a BOGO sale or use a coupon.


Here's what it looks like on me when I first wore it for my Holiday Glam Makeup. Do you seee how it looks soft on my lips? You can wear it day or night.

Do you own this shade? What are your thoughts? 


  1. I haven't tried this one yet since it is a bit pricey for me but I'm hoping a Revlon sale will pop up soon~ I love the packaging though.

    Coral's such a nice color. It looks pretty bright on the lipstick, but on your does have a more softer finish, which is really pretty. ^^

  2. very pretty I don't own this one but I do own Pink candy and love it !!! love this color i might go pick it up !

  3. love this on you! i think i might have to get this, i'm a sucker for reds and i love revlon lippies! ;)

  4. I love orange-red on you!!! You look great for day, night or whatever you want.
    I can't wear colored lipstick, it just don't suit me.
    Kisses Becky and thank you so much for your always nice comments :D

  5. The shade instantly brightens your face. Looking great, as always. :D

  6. this shade reminds of my this uber hot color in crayola, fire red. its a red orange shade, just like this.

    and it also reminds me of this local brand we have here, ever bilena matte scarlet. i swatched it once at the store and i kinda like it.

    bogo is buy one get one? i hope we have that kind of promo here.

    and last but not the least, you are looking hot and pretty again!
