Revlon Colorburst Lipstick – True Red

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick – True Red

Hi Everyone, It’s been so long since I last reviewed any product. Today, I finally made up my mind to review one of the best bold red lipsticks that I have ever seen.

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick True Red

My sister got married in November and I wanted to give her the “perfect red” lip color. Believe me, I saw so many brands (not MAC though) and I picked up a red lipstick from Lakme, I suppose number 352. But I came back and tried it on my lips. It bled out of my lips so bad that I decided to buy another red for my sister. Many other brands like Colorbar, Chambor, etc., had maroonish kind of reds, but not the colour that I had in mind.  Finally, I went to a Revlon counter and saw the “Colorburst” range. The packaging and all was “love at first sight.” I finally bought it and tried it against the Lakme one. The colour was almost similar, Lakme one was a bit more orangey than this one, but there was no noticeable difference.

So, I gifted my sister this one and it has been her and her hubby’s favourite ever since. It is true to its name, “True Red.”

The color is kind of a Barbie red, like the toy lipstick ones.

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick True Red

Packaging is a black quilted case as most of you are familiar by now.  Its very classy and sturdy, does not open in the bag.

The picture shown below is taken in the room’s lighting. Sorry, I am writing this review at night, so clicked all the pictures in the room itself.

True Red Lipstick

I cannot express how beautiful this colour is, so gorgeous, it is the perfect red. It would also suit almost all the complexions. If your wearing muted eyes and winged eyeliner, the lip color goes perfectly with it. I just love it. Here are some more pictures of the swatches and me wearing it.

The above picture is without flash. See how wonderful this colour is. Its not orange, not maroon, just red and that too a bright red, not a dull one.

Here is a picture in flash light.

The lip color lasts around 2 to 3 hours. It does transfer because I think that this range is more about the colour rather than the staying power.  If one eats while wearing it, then the lipstick fades away from the centre, so it does need touch ups. The lipstick is creamy and goes on smoothly. Although, the top is a bit weird and makes it difficult to get the perfect lined lips, but I think when one wants to pull off red, one needs to use a lip liner and a brush to get that perfect look.  But that’s not even an issue if you get such a gorgeous shade. Since I think I have said so much about the color and how beautiful it is, its time to move on to the pros and cons.

Pros of Revlon Colorburst Lipstick – True Red:

  • Lovely red color.
  • Very creamy.
  • Lasts around 2 to 3 hours.
  • Stays comfortable.
  • Opaque.
  • Not heavy as claimed by Revlon.
  • Does not dry the lips.

Cons of Revlon Colorburst Lipstick – True Red:

  • A bit pricey.

Would I Repurchase Revlon Colorburst Lipstick – True Red?

I still have that Lakme one left, will try to wear it with a liner. After it finishes too, yes definitely, I will get this one.

IMBB Rating:


This is my very first FOTD.  I just put on winged liner, don’t know if it is visible in this picture or not.

    my love for red lippies is in the subconscoius mode now 😛
    but shud be awake after this

    1. thank you 🙂 i eyed rosy nude so much but dint buy it, i already bought Creme in your coffee from Mac. will get it when that finishes 🙂

    1. really? I ve never noticed her lips. all the lip pics were coming pretty weird.. this one looked better.. 🙂

  2. that second pic of your lips is really nice..the teeth seem so straight too..:) this shade really suits you. usually when i see the pic of just the lips I am never sure how it would look overall so its good to see a pic of the whole face too..:)

    1. Thank you 🙂 seriously thats the main reason why I posted the whole face pic too. Even I think it gives a much better idea of the colour 🙂

  3. i looks soo lovely on you , harman 🙂

    though , being a student i dont think i would give it a try ( shy me ;))

    but you look sooo confident wearing it 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 I also just graduated and I totally understand it. I think its not a fair notion in our country that only married girls look good wearing bold colours. Totally not fair.
