The Summer Lipgloss: Revlon Colorburst - Sizzle
For a colour that packs a punch, Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Sizzle (£7.99/ 11.20 euro) brings it. And it brings it in spades. A straight up dark orange shade but applies a little less intense on the lips. On my lips, it's a light orangey red with a slight pink undertone. It's got that slight coral vibe going on. Right from the very first coat, the doe foot applicator generously offer a semi opaque coverage. 2 coats and it nearly has the pigmentation of a lipstick. Unlike many lipglosses, Sizzle doesn't disappoint in the pigmentation department. As a matter of fact, it excels exceptionally well and I'm very impressed with it. It serves up a pop of rich saturated colour and a high shine glossy finish in equal measures. As far as lipglosses go, Sizzle is definitely a bright and bold hue but the ultra glossy finish makes it a very wearable and playful shade. No need to be afraid ;)
The doe foot applicator is quite standard but it's a little wider and longer than your average applicator and it's flexible too. It distributes the semi opaque coverage in 2 swipes. On some occasions, I find that it can apply quite uneven and patchy due to the relatively thick consistency and the rich saturation of the gloss but applying the colour and layering it slowly is a helpful trick to overcoming this minor problem. As for the formula itself, it's non sticky and it's really comfortable to wear as it's formulated with Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E. It feels very moisturising, a nice refreshing change from the usual stickiness that came during my past affairs with other glosses. Sizzle contains the tiniest iridescent golden shimmers but they're barely noticeable as the highly saturated pigmentation somehow conceals them. It lasts just under 2 hours on me. When the vibrancy and intensity of Sizzle starts to fade away, I'm usually left with a light orangey red tint with a subtle shine. It does fade away evenly.
Glossy, moisturising, really pigmented, non sticky and very comfortable to wear? Is it any wonder why I've chosen it as my Summer go to lipgloss this year? I'm a fan. :)
