Today I am ecstatic because I finally was able to buy & use a red colour lipstick in my life!!! Although I like deep shades, but till now I did not had a single red lipstick. All credit goes to you guys at IMBB & thanks to Rati who started this blog. Ankita I know you have this and last time in suggestion for best red lipsticks you had mentioned this…Hands Down you have said. Thanks to everyone here who give suggestions for everything and makes others life more enjoyable. I am enjoying Revlon Colorburst Crimson Lipstick. So here is the review. I am not really great at describing various aspects of a lipstick so please understand it if something is not proper.

My Experience with the product
I generally write in a different format but as this is a lipstick and that too a popular one so I have chosen a different format to give a very objective idea of this beauty.
As everyone knows it’s classy. Black case with diamond pattern. Super chick with advantage of shade indicator at the top thereby quick recognition of a shade without opening all your colorburst in case you have many. (I want to have Now…)
As far as I know this is a very distinct lipstick with a personality of her own, making it pretty different in the crowd of lipstick available in the market.
Shade Crimson 095
It’s a red but a very wearable red. I think at least one red lipstick is a must of everyone and for many this could be the one!!! It’s pure red which could make you a hottie with jeans & t-shirt or a gorgeous diva in a beautiful sari.
As I can’t describe a shade like it should be done so checkout the pic. yourself for a better idea.
Texture It is a very smooth lipstick and has the right amount of gloss. It is not too glossy & not very dull either.
Pigmentation It has amazingly rich colour. In just one swipe the actual shade is felt. However more 2-3 swipes give a richer colour.
Fragrance No smell at all, which I really prefer. Its total fragrance free even if I deliberately tried I could sense nothing.
Lasting Power Easily four hours and even more if you eat or drink properly. Lasting power is an issue for me because I hate lipstick that just disappears in an hour and needs touch-ups frequently.
Here’s how it looked on me with a single swipe

Cons of Revlon Colorburst Lipstick Crimson
• Price- Rs.580/- but then it is a perfect lipstick.
• Mine tend to melt in my handbag, perhaps it’s with me only.
Rating : 5/5
If you are looking for a red do give this a try and don’t get scared when the SA tries it on your hand just wear it on your lips for once, you will love it. In case you are not a red person then there are a no. of shades available at least have one from this range, they are worth it.
Will I buy it again Yes, for sure this time a daily wear kind of shade.
No matter how dull I feel,
No matter how low am I,
You are just the perfect companion,
Who always gets me a smile,
As you kiss my lips,
I pledge I will love you my lipstick,
Love you, till I die.
Love you, till I die.
(Please don’t think I am crazy but I actually love lipsticks)
