Revlon Colorburst Lipstick – Rosy Nude Review, Swatches, Lips

I have been waiting long to get my hands on these lipsticks but my better half never let me give a chance to visit any of the cosmetic stores while we are out for shopping. I didn’t have a good luck with buying lipsticks online and ended up getting dud and hopeless shades like Absolute Plum. So this time I didn’t wanted to take a chance and buy a lipstick without checking them in stores. Also, these are on the expensive side and the loss would have been huge so testing the shades in real was mandatory.

So, after months of research I finally decided to buy Revlon Colorburst Lipstick-Rosy Nude as my first lipstick from this range.

Direction for Use:- Apply directly to lips for beautiful, high impact color. Can be worn with or without lipliner


Price:- Rs.580 for 3.7 gm

Shelf Life:-  3 years from the Mfg date.

Packaging:- The lipstick comes packed in a classy black packaging. The outer case carries a cross (diamond) pattern running all over it. The matte finish adds charm to the casing. The top of the cap carries the indicator of the lipstick shade and the base has a sticker in the similar color with the name of the shade printed over it which makes it easy to identify the lipstick shade kept either upside down or vis-a-vis. The squarish tube is easy to store which doesn’t topple like round packaging.


My experience with Revlon Colorburst Lipstick-Rosy Nude:–

Bullet:-The shape of the bullet is different from the regular angled top lipsticks. But I found it very easy to use and define lips in comparison to Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks.


Shade:-Rosy Nude is a beautiful neutral shade with right balance of pink and brown color. It makes the best MLBB shade for my pigmented lips. It is matte shade from from all kinds of shimmers or frosts. Maybelline My Mahogony shade which is another MLBB shade sometimes looked washed out on me but Rosy Nude never failed me. It is a lovely peachy brown shade and would all skin tones.

Texture:-The texture of the lipstick is extremely soft and smooth .It glides effortlessly over the lips and gives an even application. The soft velvety touch of the lipstick feels like silk on my lips. It feels feathery light on the lips just like a second skin and gives them a smoother appearance. The lipstick provides enough moisturizing to the lips to skip the lip balm application before applying this.

Pigmentation: The lipstick is well pigmented and gives a decent color with 2 swipes over my pigmented lips. It is neither a matte nor a glossy lipstick but gives just the right amount of shine to the lips. If compared to Maybelline Colorsensational lipsticks which gives a creamy gloss it gives a light watery gloss finish to the lips.



Staying power:- Being a lighter shade it tends to fade out after  4-5 hours of application but I love to reapply it. On my lips its barely survives meals but on un-pigmented lips it might leave a light peachy stain.



Pros of Revlon Colorburst Lipstick-Rosy Nude:-

  1. Glides like a dream over lips
  2. Rich creamy texture
  3. Moisturizing to the lips
  4. Gives a nice shine to the lips
  5. Lips appear smoother and doesn’t settle into lines in the lips.
  6. Well pigmented
  7. No funny smell
  8. Attractive and sturdy packaging
  9. Suits all skin tones, Lovely MLBB shade
  10. Wont look cakey

Cons of Revlon Colorburst Lipstick-Rosy Nude :-

  1. Expensive
  2. Staying power of this shade is not significant

Recommendation:- Rosy Nude is my first lipstick from the Revlon Colorburst range and I loved it so much that its hard for me to wait to try other gorgeous shades from this range. Rosy Nude is beautiful peachy pink shade which gives natural looking color to my lips and is perfect for office wear. The lipstick went on smoothly over my lips, gives a nice moisturized look to my lips. This is lightest lipstick that I have ever used till date even lighter than the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks. It doesn’t bleed and give a nice appearance to the lips.

I am falling short of words to explain my love for this lipstick. Everything is just perfect for this lipstick except it’s a little less than expected staying power but I am not complaining. It is one of the best MLBB shades which never washes me out and complements heavy eye-make up well. If you are still in search for a nice MLBB shade do give this a try and I am sure you will like it.

You wouldn’t know how they are different till you try any of these. I will repurchase this shade again and again. Highly recommended!!


Rating:- 4.3/5

    Lovely shade, looks very pretty in the 3 swipes. I haven’t tried this lipstick but bought for someone a few months ago…. another shade. The price tag was 650! Not sure if they have priced different shades at different rates coz we had paid 590 after 10% discount. Those silver leaf earrings are very attractive.

        I have not yer had the heart to buy from healthkart even once. Had read so may complaints on their FB page that they send out near expiry stuff. I even contacted them several times to check on the dates before placing an order, but they were just not willing to help. So I have not looked back to them. I have heard colorburst range is really good. I hardly use lipsticks, but will definitely check for this shade next time I go tobuy any makeup 🙂 I too have a collection of rare silver jewelry. You have a good choice.

          I have purchased 4-5 times from healthkart and thankfully never faced any issue with the products manufacturing or delivery issues. I had a good experience so far 🙂
          Yes the colorburst range is great but a bit heavy on pocket. The Rosy Nude is a such a simple yet beautiful shade that everybody can carry it with ease .. it gives a nice glossy finish with a natural pinky lips.. u must check out this shade.. 🙂
          I have become fond of Silver jewelery off late but a lot needs to be bought to make a collectionn 🙂 🙂
          I would to see your collection sweetyy

    Before I finally decided to get Rosy nude for myself, I went through lots and lots of swatches of Rosy nude on the internet, but each time i saw that the swatches varied drastically on each person. I wonder why Rosy Nude looks so different on different people? Is it just the difference in skintone or does the colour vary in each batch produced? I have no idea yet. But then, it even looks different in the bullet in various posts. Was really confused ,but I still went ahead and bought one and when I tried it on myself I found that it appeared yet another colour on my lips, not as expected and different from all the swatches I had seen earlier of it. 😀
    Anyways, i was so happy to see this post because the swatches here resemble mine and the colour looks exactly the same on my lips as it does on yours’..I’ve seen many others of your lip swatches and those colours also look similar on me. I should say that I’m a big fan of this blog now as I can blindly go and buy lip colours based on your reviews alone! THANKS A BILLION!
    And yes, Poonam, I’m in love with this lipstick too and I’m glad I bought it. (You have lovely eyes and lips, by the way.)

      Rosy Nude is one of my favorite shades.. I love its color & finish one me.. 🙂 🙂 and I am happy that u love it as well.. the shade is really a must have in your stash!!
      I can understand hw difficult it would have been to zero on the shade when all the swatches look different than the actual shade.. even I have faced similar issues I do agree that Revlon Rosy Nude looks more pinky or rosy when I go by online swatches ..
      I tried hard to get pictures close to the shade and I am so so glad that u liked the swatches.. 🙂 🙂
      Thanks for lovely complimentss dear… :blushing:
      keep coming!! 🙂
