Glossy Vixen- Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Fire

During the holidays, red was my color. I had used a variety of red lipsticks which all lasted fantastically but they left my lips cracked and flaky looking after a couple of hours, despite having exfoliated and moisturized my lips first.

I was in Boots at the beginning of January, having a look in the deals and came across Revlon ColorBurst lipgloss in a beautiful red shade called 'Fire'. I've learnt in the past not to buy from a drug store without swatching, so that's exactly what I did. Immediately, I fell in love. It was the most pigmented lipgloss I have ever seen and yet was extremely good value.


Being a beauty freak, I couldn't wait to get home to try this and so there I was in my car in the carpark doing exactly what I had previously made fun of people for doing..looking in my mirror applying makeup. I was so impressed as soon as I put it on. It had a nice paddle shaped applicator, was extremely smooth to apply and was so pigmented that I only needed one swipe of colour for it to be perfect. It also has a delicious sweet vanilla scent.


Now onto how it wore. It lasted incredibly well all day, especially for a lipgloss and did not cause my lips to crack at all. However, it did wear off at the centre of the lips when I ate or had a drink.

I then tried this with a lipliner, and again with a lipstick and it lasted much better in the food/drink test.


Overall, I would definitely encourage anyone to buy this product. For best results, wear over a lipliner or lipstick, but it does work quite well on its own too.




  1. Looks gorgeous! I'm a big fan of red, too, though lately I've been leaning more towards nudes xo

    1. Think reds are more of a winter thing! Will definitely be getting back into my nudes soon xx
