Revlon Colorburst Plum Lipstick Review

Hi everyone,

Trying to hold on to the winters with this winter-appropriate shade from Revlon 😛 Colorburst lipsticks by Revlon need no introduction and here is the review on the shade “Plum.”

Revlon Colorburst Plum Lipstick

INR 599/- for 3.7 gm.


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 a burst of virtually weightless color and moves comfortably with lips like a second skin. It contains film-forming polymers for longer wear and skin conditioning properties. Naturally fragrant with vanilla absolute and is paraben free.

My Experience with Revlon Colorburst Plum Lipstick:

I think enough has been already said about the packaging of the “Colorburst” lip colors from Revlon, so I would not repeat. One thing that is slightly bothersome is that this particular shade does not have a color-coded packaging. Other shades have a colored sticker at the base, somehow Revlon chose to ignore this poor baby 😛

The texture of this range in general is superb and this shade is no exception. These lipsticks from Revlon just hug the lips, giving it a beautiful texture and feel. It is non-drying, adds moisture to the lips in a way that you can completely skip applying a lip balm beneath. It feels lightweight on the lips and to keep the comfortable feel alive, I tend to skip the lip lining process.

The shade is a pretty dark berry shade with micro shimmers which add to the glamour of the shade. It is a perfect party-wear shade for various age groups. The shade can be beautifully paired with light smoky eyes and dirty pink blush.


The staying power varies from 4-5 hours with a bit of fading, depending on the food and fluid intake. For a creamy lip color, it is a pretty good staying power as most of them tend to fade in 2-3 hours. I have a problem with the shimmers which stay back on the lips even after removal of the lipstick. Thankfully, they are not gritty and do not travel all over the face.

  • Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips.
