Revlon | Colorburst Lipgloss in Embellished

Sunday, 12 January 2014

There is no doubt that the lip colours of the moment are deep berry, plum and wine shades. This just so happens to be one of my favourite lip trends ever and I have been obsessed with MAC's Rebel and Diva lipsticks over the last couple of months. With that in mind, this Revlon lipgloss from their new Evening Opulence collection instantly caught my eye!

Embellished is a deep burgundy with slightly purple undertones and purple shimmer running through it. On the lips, it's semi-opaque and looks much more wine toned than purple. The shimmer is noticeable but not in your face and I think adds dimension to this beautiful shade. The flat doe foot applicator makes this gloss really easy to apply and gives even coverage in a few quick strokes. As with most glosses, it has a slight stickiness to it but I don't find it annoying and it certainly isn't the stickiest gloss out there.

I love to wear this over my favourite berry lip shades to add a more glossy finish. Over Rebel it looks more purple, and over Diva it looks more burgundy. When I want something less intense but still slightly vampy I will wear it alone. I think this gloss would be great for someone who wants to experiment with the darker lip trend but wants something more toned down and daytime appropriate. It terms of wear it lasted around four hours on me and left a slight stain behind.

Revlons' packaging with this line of glosses is in my opinion some of the best packaging from a high street brand. The black quilted design is so simple and gives it an expensive look.

This is a beautiful gloss from Revlon and is bang on trend for this time of year. Embellished is one of three glosses from the Evening Opulence collection and can be purchased from Superdrug or Boots for £7.99.

Are you a fan of the berry lip trend? What are your favourite shades?


  1. Love the colour of this hun! And not a bad price, I've just got a colour like this in a Topshop lipstick but feel it drys my lips out, so maybe this would be better? x

    1. Definitely would be more glossy than a lipstick and more sheer! Or maybe add it on top of the lipstick? x

  2. What a stunning colour!, I love these deep berry colours for autumn/winter time, very sumptuous. I can see that it would look great applied over another lipstick.
