Lip Lust: Revlon Crystal Lilac


I’ve had my eyes on this colour for a few months now and Superdrug’s 3 for 2 offer pushed me over the edge to buy it. I absolutely adore the packaging, it’s such fantastic quality for a drugstore brand, they are chanel-esque in their size and shape, and also with the quilted design.
I’m always attracted to this kind of slightly iridescent lilac shade.
When I finally got round to trying it, I must admit I was a little disappointed! When I swatched it on my hand, it seemed a lot more pigmented than when I actually put it on my lips…
If you haven’t tried the Colourburst lipglosses before, they are definitely a love/hate kind of product due to both the formulation and the taste. A lot of people don’t like the taste, but I actually quite like it! It kind of tastes like rice to me (if you’ve tried these please let me know what you think in the comments… it’s a funny one!) The formulation is ever so slightly grainy too, which I’m not such a fan of.

Overall, this was a bit of a disappointment to me as I’d been wanting to buy it for such a long time. It’s one that I’ll use up, but not a favourite!

The Revlon Colourburst lipglosses are £7.99 and available from Boots and Superdrug in the UK.

  9. I'm not sure what I think about this product, even from the photos you've given... I don't think the colour is amazing enough to be 'wow' or velvety enough to be one of the sorts of nudes I like. Then the swatch on your hand looks super-thick which I don't usually like in a gloss as it tends to get stuck in the tiny crevices on my lips :( Plus, I HATE grainy lip products lol. So I guess I do know what I think... this product would be my worst nightmare!
    Thanks for the review :)

  12. i wore this colour today for the first time in soooo long, I hate the taste but I do put up with it. I will think about it tasting like rice next time i wear it and hopefully it will convert me. I like the lilac shimmer, I feel like it makes my teeth look whiter :)

  13. I love the color in these lip glosses, but I hate the glitter. After the gloss dries up and wears off a little, my lips are still covered with this gritty glitter. It's not terrible, but I'm not crazy about that. The flavor is interesting though!

  18. Pretty color! But it looks a tad bit milky, so I'm not sure how it would look on other skin tones! Good post though :)
