Revlon Colorburst vs. Revlon Matte Lipsticks

Revlon Colorburst
*Baby Pink
*Soft Nude
Revlon Matte Lipsticks
*Pink Pout
*Nude Attitude

In this blog I am going to compare the same brand of lipstick but each are different textures.
As far as texture goes Colorburst are sooo creamy and just glide on smoothly on the lips. On the lips it feels moist and hydrates the lips. As for the Matte it dehydrates my lips and doesnt go as smoothly. On the lips Matte fall in the cracks. Doesnt look very appealing, especially Nude Attitude. Nude Attitude makes me look like a corpse. Now I will say though that it is good to mute the pigmentation on your lips so you can overlap it with a color to make it stand out more. It could also work to lighten a dark color. I will never wear it solo. Another thing I dont like about the Matte lipsticks is that with lipgloss it makes it all goopy looking since they do fall in the cracks. So you have to be careful with that. Colorburst just shines and looks really nice solo.
Both are super pigmented. What you see is what you get, which I like since you cant do swatches on drugstore.
The packaging of the colorburst lipsticks are so cute. They have the color of the lipstick on the top which is makes it easier to find. Then on the cover part they have a diamond design kinda reminds me of Chanel purse pattern. Which is so classy and chic. As for the Matte well its just a generic look with a silver band that says Revlon on it.
My favorite color out of all of these is the Soft Nude Colorburst. Im not much for nudes but this one is a peachy nude and doesnt make me look like a corpse. I will definetly purchase more of the Colorburst lipsticks. Since my lips are so dry and need moisturizing lip products Mattes just dont work for me. So I will no longer purchase from the Matte lipsticks.
