Yet another forgotten lipstick in my collection, I have all of my lip butters out while this collects dust in the drawer (side bar – can something collect dust in a drawer? #musings) I don’t know why I haven’t bought more from the Colorburst range let alone why I don’t use the one I have. I love the packaging, very sleek and appears to be much more expensive than it’s £7.99 price tag, the imprinted branding in the bullet is always a nice touch and to top it off it’s actually a great lipstick.
It’s not totally opaque, a touch sheer but it almost adds dimension to it rather than it being solid, it makes to lips appear plumper, I like that. It wears nicely, I’d probably be looking to reapply after a couple of hours, especially if I’ve been eating/drinking but it’s not a long wearing formula so that’s what you’d expect. The finish isn’t super glossy once it’s settled so that helps it stay put somewhat too.
I think they’ve discontinued this line ’cause I can’t find it anywhere online.. I had no idea and that’s massively disappointing since I just rediscovered this and was off to actively search for some more colours to buy.. ugh!! I think the closest thing now would likely be this Smoked Peach from their matte range, sorry about that!
