Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Carnation Review

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Carnation Review

Hello Ladies!

Hope you are all doing fine. Here’s another review from me which I hope you enjoy reading.  My mom has such a great influence on me when it comes to beauty brands I use.  Revlon is one makeup brand I am most familiar with because I saw my mom using them when I was a little kid. I remember when I was around 10, my mom’s vanity table really interested me a lot and I would frequently try her lipsticks 😛 I know a lot of ladies can relate.


Product Description:

Innovative pigments provide immediate, high-pigment color release on lips with a feather light feel.  Moisturizers and antioxidants, including sweet almond oil, improves lip texture.  Elasticolor technology™ hugs lips with burst of virtually weightless color and moves comfortably with lips like a second skin.  Contains film-forming polymers for longer wear and skin conditioning properties. Naturally fragrant with Vanilla Absolute and is Paraben free.

A few years back, when I started to build my own make up stash, I found myself around Revlon counters, exploring what they had.  One item that I liked a lot was the Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Carnation.

I so love Revlon Colorburst lipsticks.  Carnation shade is my second favorite among Colorburst lipstick shades, next to Soft Rose. Carnation is medium pink shade lipstick with blue undertones. It sometimes appears to me as bubblegum pink. It is the type that subtly reflects light. Yup, it has very subtle frosty finish. I am not into frosted lipstick,but this managed to stay in my collection because, again, it has low frost finish to it. Very wearable I should say.

Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks are packaged in matte black, rectangular plastic tube with net-like markings on sides of the tube. Sometimes, I see it as embossed diamonds too.  As for the packaging, overall, I like it a lot because it is very minimalist and is sturdy too.


Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Carnation is richly pigmented. One swipe can give opaque color on lips. It has very nice shine to it too making lips look a little plumper and healthier as well. It is really creamy and glides super well on the lips and it is not drying too. So far, I find few Colorburst lipsticks I have, luxurious on lips.


Carnation is lightweight on lips and it does not emphasize lines on the lips, so all thumbs up on that. This lasts on my lips for 4 hours which I find more than fair for a supposedly moisturizing lipstick. This lipstick won’t survive a meal. Reapplication is needed after eating. Oh well, I don’t mind reapplying.

What I Like about Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Carnation:

  • I like the soft rose pink color.
  • It is very creamy, glides smoothly on the lips.
  • Gives superb sheen on the lips.
  • Gives even color on the lips.
  • It stays on my lips for 4 hours.
  • It is lightweight.
  • It is not drying on the lips.
  • I find it pricier than other drugstore brands but definitely it is worth the price.


What I Do Not Like about Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Carnation:

  • It fades unevenly on the lips, forming a rim around my mouth. So, I always make sure I carry my tube for touch ups.

Final Thoughts:

I would repurchase once I finish my tube.  Perhaps, I will only repurchase because of its shade but I think I’ll look for other lipsticks in similar shade, but with satin finish.

IMBB Rating:
