Packaging: 9/10

Revlon’s ColorBurst Lipglosses come in clear, rectangular, plastic tubes. The twist-off handle is connected to a pinched, doe-foot applicator.

Quality: 9/10

The formula for this gloss is pretty thin but not watery. It’s not entirely slick, but it’s not sticky either. It has some emollience and brings a little bit of moisture to the lips.

Brilliant Bordeaux is a beautifully neutral shades that gets its uniqueness from the fusion of pink and brown tones and small, pearlescent particles. The lipgloss feels smooth on the lips and you don’t feel any gritty texture.

The gloss lasts about two and a half (2.5) hours on my lips before I want to re-apply. The gloss also is not transfer-resistant, so it will get on anything your lips touch (cups, straws, significant others, etc.)

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

This gloss glides over the skin without noticeable tugging.

Price: 8.8/10

I purchased my gloss for around around $9.00. The gloss contains 0.2 ounces (5.9 ml). This is an average amount of product for a gloss and a slightly higher than average price-point.

    That’s really pretty. I’m liking the holiday lipglosses.

  2. Ellie says:

    When are these coming out? I searched at ULTA yesterday and they’re not there yet.

    • Allura says:

      They’re already available.

    • Natalie says:

      At my Ulta, they were in a really random spot not with the other Revlon stuff. It was like a holiday display with some other new Revlon products mixed in on a random shelf like 2 away from the regular products.

      • Ellie says:

        Thanks. I went back yesterday. I couldn’t find them, so I asked and was told they weren’t out yet. So, I was in line to pay for my other stuff and I found them in a display that was sort of hidden on the way out. :/
