Swatches today 🙂 And more drugstore!
I have two Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks, which I got a while ago but hadn’t made a video or post about so I thought I’d finally get around to it.
Revlon has a few different formulas of lipstick, but I think the Colorburst ones are the most popular, as they’re (I think) the newest and the best in quality; or so I assumed off of what I gathered off the internet really only having swatches and posts about this specific line of Revlon lipsticks.
The Colorburst formula comes in quite a few colors, from neutral to bold but not too bold. There are some darker colors and a red but nothing too over the top. Based on the two lipsticks I have, the lipsticks themselves are fairly creamy, but not too, and are fairly pigmented. They also didn’t dry out on my hands in and did stain a little bit when I went to remove them with a wipe.
My CVS doesn’t have the full range of colors, so I did end up ordering off of Ulta.com, which is convenient because a) they always have some sort of sale for drugstore items and b) it’s guaranteed that I’m going to get a brand new, never before touched product.
They regularly retail for between $5 and $7 depending on where you get them.
More photos and swatches after the jump!

090 – True Red
This is one of the colors I got because I tend to get the red lipstick from any brand so I can compare and contrast with all the other brands. If a brand can do a good red lipstick, then I approve. 
True Red is a warm red color with a slight orange tone, making it brighter than the other red lipsticks I have. It’s lighter and warmer than Mac’s Russian Red.
The finish has a slight sheen, so it’s not matte, but is still fairly pigmented. 

040 – Soft Rose
Soft Rose is the neutral color I chose because based on swatches off of other blogs, it seemed like the most wearable color for my skin tone. It’s a nice slightly mauvey nude color and is great for everyday wear. It’s basically like Sweet Tart Lip Butter by Revlon, just less shiny.
