Revlon Lipstick

Review: Revlon Matte Lipstick "Nude Attitude"
Revlon Color Burst lipstick were released at the end of 2009, supposedly as a response to the much buzzed Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick (Which I don't even like all that much) although the shade selection is much smaller. I wasn't that interested in the collection as I usually like lipstick with pretty tubes.
While I am not feeling much for the fishnet tube from Revlon Color Burst lipstick, I do like the fact that all Revlon lipsticks comes in tough and anti scratch tubes, which have a nice, substantial feel to it so that it doesn't appear flimsy. There is no peeping window on the top of the lid but the plastic does look a lot like the actual color of the lipstick so you can get a good idea what you are getting. Unlike those typical chubby bullet, this lipstick has tip and marking that looks like one of those expensive brand...So how does the formula compare?
I picked Fuchsia (I love this kind of bold/trashy color even there is pretty much nowhere to wear it) main to see how ugly it would look compared to my fuchsia favorite- Lancome Satin Fuchsia. If I am very lucky this might work as a replacement since satin fuchsia has been discontinued already.
The Revlon Color Burst lipsticks has pretty decent pigmentation and I already get a good deal of this hideous color (yes, hideous) with one swipe. The color looks ridiculous on my skin and I cannot imaging there would be anyone who find this shade wearable.
The Revlon Color Burst lipstick has a smooth texture but it's not as malleable as Lancome (which can be worn as a stain or used to achieve a bold color without any gunky residue.) that they only way to wear the color is to wear it boldly. The color fuchsia is a tricky color to grasp when it comes to lipstick, it can look pretty youthful and fresh when it has the right ratio of blue and red
Anything too red, too blue or too shimmery would look very cheap...In the case of this Revlon lipstick, it's way too deep and bold (scarier than those Model Co eyeshadow compact) that there is no way for me carry off the color unless I work in a shady night club. (The swatch might not look that horrible but I usually take 2-3 pictures for swatch pictures and I pick the best of the group but for this lipstick I have taken at least 30 pictures to pick the least ugly one...)
If you think the color is bad enough. The lipstick also has a glossy, patent leather finish (instead of soft focused shine) that I really hate, as it's literally shoving the obnoxious color right in my face and the color actually feathers on my lips (I never use lip liner but I have never seen bleeding/feather even on 1-dollar Wet n Wild). Anyway, the feathering and shiny finish are bonus, I already hate this lipstick the moment I have it on.
