Review: Revlon's Colorburst Lipsticks

It is very rare that I find a drugstore brand lipstick that I actually like.  I prefer department store brand lipsticks because you can test the color before you buy and they don't have that sickly sweet synthetic smell that drugstore lipsticks tend to have.  However, I have had great luck with the Revlon Colorburst line.  I have five of their lipsticks and I am impressed.  I have Fashion's Night Pout, Coral, Peach, Soft Nude, and Mauve.

Fashion's Night Pout is a limited addition color first released for New York's Fashion's Night Out.  It is a peach toned nude color, similar to Soft Nude.

Coral is a orange toned red that leans more orange than red on the lips.

Peach is a warmed toned peach, that actually appears more like a true coral on my lips.

Soft Nude is a peach toned nude that is just a touch more pink than Fashion's Night Pout.  It is also said to be a dupe for MAC's Creme D'Nude, which I do not own.

Mauve is pink toned mauve with just a touch of purple.

They don't smell of anything (yay!).  That is a huge plus for me.  They also have a creamy texture, similar to a MAC cremesheen finish.  I find them to be non-drying, which is great for my notoriously dry lips and I don't find that they emphasize any dryness on the lips.  They tend to last about 4 hours on my lips before re-application is needed.

The colors in the tube are pretty true to the color indicator on the top.  And the packaging is actually pretty nice for a drugstore brand.  It is matte black with a Chanel-esque quilted pattern.

 Depending on where you buy them, they range in price from $6.49-$10.49 but you can catch them on sale quite frequently.  Have you tried any of these lipsticks?  Do you like them?
