Swatched: Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss


I recently got these Revlon ColorBurst Lipglosses at a great price. If you live in Washington and have a Bartell Drugs nearby, there is still time to take advantage of this deal. Revlon (full line) is 40% off at Bartell Drugs through 10/23/11. (Read about more sales here!) The 40% off sale brings the price down from $7.49 each to $4.49 each. Then, if you can find the display with a $2 peel coupon attached to each lipgloss, you get an even better deal. All of mine came from that display, so with the additional $2 off each lipgloss I paid $2.49 each. Great deal, huh?
If you do not have a Bartell Drugs near you, Rite Aid also has Revlon at 40% off this week. I have not seen the display with the $2 peel coupons on the lipglosses at my local Rite Aid but it is worth checking out. If you can't find the display, you could also stack a manufacturers coupon with the sale if you have any. There was one for $1 off any Revlon color cosmetics product in the 10/2 Walmart ad.
Anyway, on to the swatches! (Click images to enlarge.)
These lipglosses come in many different colors. The texture is smooth and creamy with just a slight stickiness to it. I would say these last as long as the average lipgloss. For me it is hard to tell exactly because I seem to always be sipping on a coffee or water bottle, which wears off my gloss. Based on my experience and habits with lipgloss though, I didn't find that I had to apply this one any more than normal. The pigmentation is decent in the swatches above but it does look more sheer on the lips. Take a look below. The brush is kinda unique, it is a longer doe foot applicator that has a rounded tip and has been flattened  a bit. The flattened sides sort of act like a little pocket for the gloss when you pull it out of the tube. If you run out on one side, you can flip it over and use the little pocket of gloss on the other side. I am not sure what other glosses have a similar applicator because this is the first time I have owned one like this. These glosses seem really comparable in texture and pigmentation to the Essence lipglosses I purchased awhile back.
Overall, I think these are a good product for a relatively inexpensive price. (Depending on how many coupons and what type of sale you are able to use.) I am definitely happy with the price I paid for them, especially since I own so much lipgloss I don't know what to do with it. I don't really feel the need to run out and buy more of these, even though they are still on sale. Since they remind me so much of the Essence lipglosses, I would probably purchase one of those first. I'm sure most of these will get thrown into the mix of my favorites though.
