Pretty in peach with Revlon Colorburst lipstick & gloss

Although the weather is miserable and I'm wearing a big snuggly cardigan as I type, that's no excuse for not embracing summery make-up. I've become a convert to the peach lip, usually favouring pinks and corals, but now ever so slightly obsessed with juicy peach shades. 

Revlon kick-started my obsession with their Colorburst range. I know everyone's currently into Revlon's Lip Butters, which are indeed gorgeous (I've got two- click here for the review), but I decided to go for the Colorburst lipstick in 075 Peach and Colorburst lipgloss in 022 Sunset Peach. (A quick note- some Boots stores appear to have replaced Colorburst lipsticks with the new Lip Butters... I really hope that doesn't mean the lipsticks are being phased out permanently :s)

Here's a pic of the sleek black packaging, very easy on the eye:

Sunset Peach & Peach 
The lipgloss packaging reminds me of Chanel, which is only ever a good thing! Both products are generous in terms of content(although I accidentally pulled off the stickers that detail the exact weight etc- sorry!). The best part about these peachy beauties is that they look great layered together, by way of lipstick and then gloss. 

I've taken some photos of swatches, although unfortunately not any pictures of my mouth as I have a cold and don't feel too pretty at the moment :( But the colours on my hand really capture what the products look like upon application. 

075 Peach Colorburst lipstick

Lipstick swatch
The lipstick has a touch of gold shimmer and is an extremely flattering peach shade- not too orangey (it doesn't make your teeth look yellow!) with a good hint of coral. 

022 Sunset Peach Colorburst lipgloss

Lipgloss swatch
The gloss is a lighter peach, with hints of gold shimmer and a more 'nudey' tone. It feels moisturising and non-tacky. 

And now for the two mixed together...

Lipstick & gloss combined
It might not look that different in the photo above, but I promise that the lipstick and gloss combined give a really pretty gold-peach colour that refrains from being too orange, and looks extremely natural. Very easy to wear! Would go great with a light dusting of peachy blusher or bronzer and a sweep of mascara. Lovely! Now if only the weather would improve...

Revlon Colorburst lipstick retails for £7.99 at Boots, click here.

  1. Oooh I like these shades! The gloss reminds me of Bare Minerals Peach Cobbler. x

    1. I've never tried any Bare Minerals products, would you recommend? x

  2. Gorgeous colours! I'm loving anything peach/coral and even orange at the moment. xx


Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I read and reply to every comment and would love to hear what you think x
