Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Soft Rose Swatch and Review

     Besides Soft Rose, I have two more of the Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks in Soft Nude (featured in some FOTDs), and Fuchsia (featured in a bright lipstick post). So when I review the lipsticks, I will be referring to my overall impression of the lipsticks. First of all, here are pictures and a swatches of Soft Rose.

Hand swatch!

Bare lips for reference.

     My lip swatch shows Soft Rose to be a little more toned down compared to what it is in real life. I think the hand swatch is much more accurate. It's a wearable pinky rose color, that is darker than my bare lip color. I think it's a pretty nice everyday color that will look great with many different eye looks.

Fuchsia (totally different in pic compared to real life), Soft Rose, Soft Nude

     The pigmentation and color of the colors I have tried range, but there isn't a huge difference. Soft Nude is a peachy nude that I think is the lightest and sheerest of the three, but I don't mean that it is sheer, just compared to the other two I have. Soft Rose (I already described the color above) is nicely pigmented and is in between the other two in terms of pigmentation. Fuchsia is a bright...well, fuchsia, that has the best pigmentation of the three. These three that I have are all a semi-matte texture.

     The application/comfort between these three lipsticks is quite similar. They glide on well, and depending on which lipstick, you'll need to add a different amount of layers. I do find that Soft Nude tends to show my lip lines as do most nudes. These lipsticks do feel a bit drying after a while.

     These lipsticks wear for quite a short time. I get about 3-4 hours if I don't eat, and by the end of the couple of hours my lips feel dry. However, I don't feel that it is a huge problem.

     Overall, I'm am pretty satisfied with these lipsticks. Soft Nude is the easiest nude that I have to wear because it does not wash my out and I have the option to build up the color (it's one of my most worn lipsticks at the moment). Soft Rose is also a nice wearable color that will be perfect for those who want a clean, polished look. Fuchsia is most of an "out there" color that I will love during this season when I want to simplify my makeup and have my lips stand out (color blocking idea!). I think the colors I have make up for the fact that these lipsticks are a touch drying, I'll definitely be looking into more of these if my Walgreens doesn't keep running out of the colors.

Thanks for reading, hope this was helpful. Byebye. @_@
