Revlon Vital Radiance Moisture Boosting Lipcolor – Melon 020
Hi Dear IMBBians,
I saw Neha’s post on Revlon Plum Sexxxyyy and realized how the poor one has been literally ignored till Nehaji came along. Then, I thought “okay, why not scribble about Revlon Vital Radiance range, no one seems to have heard of it?’ Now honestly, I have not much idea about this range, I have never seen this in any store here and I couldn’t find any mention of it on the Revlon website, but Revlon still sells this line of lipsticks abroad through discount outlets I guess.
About Revlon Vital Radiance:
I am adding a pamphlet that came along with the lipstick pouch. From my browsing the internet, I got to know that this line was meant for 40+ women (made me wanna kill my friend who gifted this sayin “You’d love it!”) and somewhere around 2008, they got the message that their line was not very popular because they marketed it under a different name instead of using Revlon brand and finally took it off their official list (good lesson in branding for anyone interested in marketing).
I saw it being put on for sale in Amazon for $12 for 1.4 gms, I don’t know how much my friend paid since it was a gift.
Product Description courtesy Amazon:

I guess this is one major reason why they had to discontinue this. The packaging is horrible. There is a quite unfriendly plastic case which is very difficult to open and then the lipstick has to be pushed from the other side to come out. The lipstick is in a cylindrical white plastic packaging which reminds me of my grandma and the creamy white saree, creamy white opticals and the creamy white bag she used to carry. If ever my grandma would have loved a lipstick, this would be it. I am not being sarcastic , seriously not, just that this is a very lady-like packaging. One good thing is the color is very visible through the transparent casing. Downside is that the creamy lipstick stains all round the edges.
My Experience with Revlon Vital Radiance Moisture Boosting Lipcolor – Melon 020:
Melon is a creamy coral pinkish shade with subtle red tones. This has no shimmer and has a light but lovable fragrance, I have no idea what it is but smells tasty.
I will start by mentioning what I do not like. I don’t like that this is very creamy and bleeds if I don’t set it with a powder. I always wear a lip balm with my lipsticks, but this is one lipstick which cannot stand lip balms. The other major factor is my lips seem to drink this! I have never seen this with any other lipstick! I applied a layer, almost 3 swipes heavy and went out and within an hour, it looked like I had applied a lip gloss on my lips! Also, this transfers like crazy, so don’t touch any white cups if you’re wearing this.
Now to the good part, wondering if there is any? You betcha, first of all, this is very creamy, very moisturizing and very soft on lips. It glides, it smoothens, and I like how pouty my lips look after I apply it. No need for a lip gloss after wearing this beauty, it looks that glossy. Again, I mentioned how my lips drink this, but the best part is the naturally-pretty-peachy-pinky-glossy shade remains on my lips for another 2-3 hours if I don’t eat (drinking is okay). This makes it an absolute darling for day wear as well as summer wear, I am reserving this for summer parties! I noticed that all the colors in this range are warm vibrant shades, probably to make 40+ woman look younger and more vibrant and I must say it works. If I have to describe the color and the effect, I would say it’s a very naturally glowing soft color.
Pros of Revlon Vital Radiance Moisture Boosting Lipcolor – Melon 020:
- Lovely color, excellent for summer day wear.
- Creamy, soft and smooth on application.
- Lips look soft and naturally healthy for 3-4 hours.
- Doesn’t dry off badly. In fact, didn’t dry off at all, till I wiped it with a napkin after around 5-6 hours. The color faded but the moisturizing effect stayed.
- Can be worn without a lip balm, as a lip balm; and without any gloss also.
- The lady-like creamy white packaging might appeal to many.
Cons of Revlon Vital Radiance Moisture Boosting Lipcolor – Melon 020:
- Horrible packaging, difficult to use.
- Feathers and bleeds (don’t know why they claimed it with such a creamy formula!)
- Nonavailability in India and abroad since this is a discontinued line, available online though.
- Contains parabens.
- Color fades in intensity very fast.
3.5 out of 5 (0.5 for packaging, for parabens and for availability).
Will I Buy Revlon Vital Radiance Moisture Boosting Lipcolor – Melon 020 Again:
Sure, if they introduce it here at a cheaper rate. I think this would be a good alternative for a tinted lip balm if they can market it without parabens. I think this product delivers most of what it claims.
