This was my lipstick haul from a month ago when Rexall Pharmaplus (a Canadian drugstore) held a 50% off event with their lipsticks and glosses.


-Vasanti lipstick in Aruba & tinted lipbalm in Cancun
-Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor (can't remember the shade)
-Revlon Colourburst in Peach & Blush.

Today I'm featuring a closeup look at the Revlon Colorburst in Peach:

Lip swatch:

On me, Peach warms up my natural lipcolour a bit so it comes out as a warmer pink with faint peach tones. However if you have less pigmented lips than I do (probably 70% of you!) it would appear more peach and much less pink.

Compared it with other peach lipsticks in my collection that seemed similar:

L-R: Joe Fresh Coral, MAC Ever Hip, Revlon Colorburst Peach.


In terms of texture, all 3 lipsticks glided on though Revlon and MAC were the smoothest. Pigmentation wise, the Joe Fresh lipstick was the best, while Revlon and MAC were sheerer, requiring a few swipes to get the same pigmentation as the Joe Fresh.


Colour wise, the Revlon Peach was closer to Joe Fresh Coral, slightly pinker but not as pink as MAC Ever Hip. In fact, Revlon Peach could be the child of MAC Ever Hip + Joe Fresh coral :)
