REVIEW & LOTD: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Peach

You know when you go out and buy something just because it is being written and talked about so much that if you yourself don't get it then you get a feeling of being left out? Of course you don't require it but you "need" it :P Classic examples? Maybelline BB Cream, MAC Cosmo, MAC Paint Pots and of course Colorbar I-Glide Pencils! For me another one joins the list and that is the range of Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks! Out of the list, Maybelline BB Cream and MAC Paint Pots Passed while MAC Cosmo and I-Glide Pencils Failed :( Colorburst lippies? Let's see :)

I bought my first Revlon Colorburst Lippy on Sunday during the Pune Blogger's Meet. How did I decide on the shade? Well a few days back I was going through other beauty blogs when I came across Sukanya's post about Revlon Colorbusrt Lipstick in Peach and she looked lovely with it :) So I knew this was the shade that was going to inaugurate my buying Revlon Colorburst Lippies :)

But unfortunately, as much as it looked yummy on Sukanya, it looked terrible on me :( Completely washing me out and making me look quite sick and ill... The lippy quality as such is pretty impressive and it does stay on for quite sometime but this particular shade isn't made for me :P

Revlon Colorburst Peach is a sheer peach shade with fine shimmery particles, which looks gorgeous in a swatch and well I feel it would go with all skin tones except mine, which is uncannily YELLOW :P Sukanya, sweetie you are one lucky girl that this shade looks so gorgeous on you! I wish it did on me too :( And thank you so much for finally opening the world of Revlon Colorburst lippies to me! :D *much indebted*

Like I said it makes me look ill, but I haven't thrown it away. I have two uses for it... One that it looks gorgeous as a cream blush and second I wear it to office when I have to show that I am not well and need to leave early :P B*tchy? I know! :P

See how it suits me NOT!
 Ooohhss And Aaaahhsss!!
1. It's a beautiful sheer peach shade that would look gorgeous on non-pigmented lips.
2. It does stay on for a decent amount of time and leaves behind a pretty tint
3. The quality of the Colorburst lippies is good. They are not drying at all.
4. Totally love the checkered packaging! 
5. It makes it very easy for me to look ill and leave office early (ok kidding!)

Ouches!!
1. It enhances the lines on my lips.
2. It is expensive!
3. It washes me out :(

Price
It costs INR 580/-

Repurchase?
Hmmmm.. Not this one definitely but yup I'll try other shades in this range.
 
Would I Recommend?
Only if you have non-pigmented lips. And I would suggest you to first try it out on your lips at the store and only then buy it!

7/10

  1. Hey, even I liked this shade in swatch, but I've made many mistakes in the past by not trying lipsticks on the lips so I always try them now before buying...I have done a review on three shades from this range, Rosy Nude, Mauve and Crimson....check out my reviews here

  5. I will suggest u use Soft rose from colorburst-its real pretty and will suit you nicely. In a very similar way-the Lakme 9-to-5 foundation/compact never suited me although it was an HG product for many :( :( and I am ROFLing on ur idea of "sickness" makeup :D :D

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
