Revlon Colorburst Lipstick Rosy Nude Review, Photos, Swatch

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).

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.

Final verdict
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)
