My first review on IMBB!!! Thanks Rati for giving me an opportunity. So here goes my review of
Revlon Colorburst Rosy Nude (No.65)
Being a working mother of a toddler, I am always on the lookout for simple and non-fussy makeup that can be applied in a jiffy and does not make me look ‘decked-up’. One such cosmetic that fits the bill is a nude shade of lipstick – just right for everyday wear to work. However, all the nudes that I have tried ended up looking either too pasty (not the right color) or felt too dry (not the right texture). So it was with no great expectations that I picked up yet another nude – Revlon Colorburst in Rosy Nude (No. 65) -on a recent shopping trip. But wow – am I impressed with it or what?!
The color swatch looked just perfect and the attractive packaging sealed the deal. The black matte tube with criss-cross patterns on it gives it a very sophisticated look. The inner stick of colour has ‘REVLON’ engraved on it which makes it look ‘posh’ (for lack of a better word!). Though I was a bit skeptical about dishing out Rs550 for a basic shade of lip color, I was in a mood to splurge that day! Thankfully it turned out to be a wise investment.
The first impression of the lipstick I had was that it is so easy to apply and glides on the lips like a dream. I have tried it with just one swipe as well as 2-3 swipes and every time, the shade looks just right for my skin tone (wheatish with yellow tones) and I’m sure it will suit most Indian complexions. One swipe gives a fresh and mild rosy hue and another couple of swipes gives a deeper rosy color to the lips. It has the right amount of pinkish tint to take me through a regular day at work– unlike most of the other nudes I have tried that have either been too pink (giving a goody-goody girly look) or too brown (looks too severe).
Swatch : One and Two Swipes
And now coming to the real test of strength (:P). This lipcolor does not dry out my lips – even at the end of the day I am able to feel the creamy texture when I smack my lips. The shade does fade after about 3-4 hours to a mild rosy tint and may require a touchup then. However, there have been several occasions where I have managed without one and I was still happy with what remained on my lips.
I would definitely buy this color again since I am so happy I found my perfect nude!
Pros of Revlon Colorburst Rosy Nude (No.65)
1] Suits most Indian complexions
2] Matte finish but does not dry the lips and does not feel flaky
3] Very smooth application
4] Likely to last long – one swipe is usually enough for a subtle hint of colour; 2-3 swipes gives a deeper shade
Cons of Revlon Colorburst Rosy Nude (No.65)
1] Needs touchups though not too many. On an average 8 hour working day, I usually touch up once, even though I have applied the lipcolour with 2 swipes in the morning. However, there have been days when I have managed without a touchup since the colour fades to leave a mild stain on the lips, which isn’t too bad.
2] The price is a bit steep.
This is a great shade of nude for everyday wear not to mention the lovely texture. Despite the price, I think it’s a worthy investment since the tube is likely to last for quite some time.
My Rating: 4/5 (one point less for the pricing)
