Quick Review: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick

Revlon’s done it again!

Lately it seems like Revlon releases a new line of lipwear and I fall sucker for their commercial and decide to try it out. I’m still a lover of the longwear ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick product and wear it rather often, but the new ColorBurst line intrigued me.

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick

Revlon said the feel was lighter, but still creamy/not drying, and the color was vibrant. I like that. I always wanted to like lipglosses, but I smush my lips together too often to commit solely to that type of lip product. Longwears and lipsticks seem to be where I gravitate.

I bought a tube before I even took a look at MakeupAlley’s reviews, and that never happens! Revlon made a “Plum” shade, so that’s the one I grabbed. Usually when lipcolor comes in Plum, it works well with my skintone, and Colorburst was no exception! I absolutely LOVED how it looked on my lips!

Now, I just put it on to see what it would look like. I didn’t test it with food, drink, daily wear or any of those factors I usually do, but I will. I was just very surprised on how great this lipstick looked and felt on my lips. There isn’t going to be an issue with smushing with this product! Kind of felt like I had chapstick on. Seriously! So, I tend to reapply chapstick a few times per day. Surely doing that with lipstick (that feels the same way) won’t be an inconvenience, right?

I recently purchased a lip brush because that is now I want to apply lipsticks from here on out. I actually have pretty full lips and don’t want to look like a crazy lady who can’t “color inside the lines”. It should be here within a week, then I’ll continue with more of my testing. I’m also looking into lipliners.

My only issue is that Revlon does not have this product on their website anywhere. Does anyone else think that’s odd? I want to see all the colors and info. Their website still says the ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick is “new”, which it’s not. THIS product is new. *gives Revlon the side eye*

I made the original draft of this post a week ago and since then, CVS has announced a Revlon BOGO. Perfect timing! Now if only it’d stop snowing long enough for the roads to clear and allow me to get to a CVS store…

CVS BOGO: L’Oreal HiP Products


Another quick post to inform that CVS is having another L’Oreal HiP BOGO this week. I’m not sure if it’s nationwide or not, but it was in my local Sunday flier, so your mileage may vary.

I haven’t been back to CVS in a few weeks, but the last couple of times I was there, I still didn’t see the new HiP Kohl Eyeliner there. That’s what I’d be picking up on a BOGO, if anything!

Anyway, just spreading the word. Gotta save that $$ whenever possible these days!

CVS is Sneaky!

CVS BOGO ALERT!But let me tell you why! I posted yesterday about possibly checking out that new L’Oreal HiP Kohl Eyeliner. I also added a little note onto the end and pointed out that CVS is doing a BOGO this week on HiP products.

I thought this was a perfect storm because I still have bonus Extra Care discounts and coupons for HiP products! And it would have been had CVS actually had these new HiP products in stock! I went to 2 different CVS stores and neither had the eyeliner or color presso available.

I ended up going to Target Boutique and there it was in its own special display. Couple that with seeing it at a grocery store yesterday, and I’m pretty sure that CVS is holding out on debuting this item until AFTER their HiP BOGO week is up. They probably think they’ll lose a lot of money since it’s a new product and they want customers to buy each and every tube without any freebies.

It’s a shame, though. I was salivating at the thought of getting a BOGO deal on this product. It could just be the greater Columbus area, but I doubt it. Has anyone seen these new HiP products at a CVS?

CVS BOGO Extravaganza!

Because I’m such an old lady (no jokes, please!), I set some time aside on Sundays to look through the retail ads in the paper. Aint nuttin’ wrong with lookin’ for a deal, yo!

Anyway, flipping through the CVS circular, I saw a bunch of cosmetics BOGO deals.

If you need anything from the Revlon Beyond Natural line, some L’Oreal Lipcolor, or any Maybelline Face, Eye, Lip or Nail Color, get your booty on over to CVS this week and hook yourself up!

Cover Girl is not included. They almost never do BOGOs; even though they too sliced prices for this week. Doesn’t matter to me as I found great deals on my Outlast lip color on eBay.

I’m not sure I need anything now, but I might take a little trip over to CVS to see if anything jumps out at me! Maybe a couple more L’Oreal Infallible lip glosses. We’ll see!

Revlon BOGO Alert!

CVS is hooking you up this week!

CVS is hooking you up this week!

I totally forgot to post about this earlier and now the week is almost over! My bad!

Revlon’s makeup line, with the exception of limited edition products, is BOGO this week at CVS if you are an ExtraCare card member. (It’s free and I highly recommend it. It helps you save $$ every time you shop!)

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about my new love affair with Revlon’s Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup. So, this would be a good time to stock up! I picked up another tube of my shade plus the soothing primer.

So, if you’re a fan, be sure to hit up CVS this weekend. You’ve got today and tomorrow to take advantage of this deal!
