Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss and Awards

I don't like lip gloss but I am always hoping I'll find one that will change my mind. These are not it. 

I bought two brand new shades of Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Sizzle and Bellini. Packaging wise, I love the simple sleek bottle and the quilted detail on the cap. I also really like the flat applicator which for me makes it easy to apply.

Sizzle is on the left and Bellini is on the right

Bellini is a very milky pink color that looks weird on me by itself. I think it's way too light and I've been trying to use it on top of lipstick but I still don't like it for some reason. The color is similar to the Revlon Lip Butter Creamsicle but I like the Lip Butters more.

Sizzle in the bottle looks like a bright red/orange color but on the lips it seems more subdued. It's more wearable than I thought it would be and I can see this working for most skin tones.

These are still sticky because they are lip glosses after all but they're not too bad. You're hair will stick on your lips if the wind blows but it's not a fly trap either. My big gripe about these are the longevity. The color starts fading after a hour without drinking or eating anything. Unacceptable. 

Overall I might repurchase Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Sizzle but I'll pass Bellini. 

What do you think about the new shades?

And in other news I was nominated for two awards! First was the Sunshine Award by In Her Daydream and another Versatile Award by Rae-Rae. Thank you so much for showing me love and I hope you guys check them out. As much as I appreciated the awards, I'm going to bend the rules (can I do that?) and simply nominate other people. 

So check these other bloggers out

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. I'm not a huge fan of gloss but Sizzle looks really nice and I love the packaging! Disappointing about the colour fade though x

    1. They might last longer on other people but I'm sad it didn't work for me.

  2. Sizzle looks great on you....but for my coloring I'd go with the Bellini
