Sometimes it pays off to through caution to the wind and pick up a wild card cosmetic shade every now
and then, when I purchased Sun Baked there was no reliable online swatches.
You can only learn so much from swatching a product on the back of your hand (like hell I am putting
a store tester anywhere near my mouth)!
So let's say hello to my cosmetic "wild card" Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Sun Baked.
For a drugstore brand the packaging is faultless,
it is sleek with a subtle nudge to the mother ship that is Chanel thanks to the quilted engraving on the lid.
The clear tubing makes it a breeze to spy what shade is housed inside and the doe foot applicators is slightly better than the bog standard versions due it to it being flat and super flexible.
That being said I would still prefer a brush time applicator but we can't win every battle!
Revlon Sun Baked is a funny ol' colour when in the tube,you will be forgiven for thinking "eww that looks a little muddy and not all that attractive" and I whole heartedly agree, well that is until it is applied!
To me Sun Backed is a mix of brown, pink with the tiniest hint of purple
on paper it shouldn't work but it does, particularly on mid to deep skin tones.
Applied it is a great mix of deep pink and brown that reminds me a little of MAC Twig lipstick
albeit a little sheerer and glossy obviously.
Sun Baked is a great glossy shade for layering over mid toned brown lipsticks
particularly those with a slight pink tone.
I bet you are wondering why I am so fond of Revlon Color Burst lipglosses?
Well unlike my past experiences with lipgloss, (which are so far from positive it is unreal)
these aren't sticky in the slightest and are comfortable to wear, which is a complete first for me!
They feel creamy, moisturising and light, basically a complete joy to wear.
They do however preform like any other lipgloss you'll achieve high shine finish
but very much like a typical lipgloss the wear is typically short 1-2 hours max!
Generally they aren't the most pigmented lip products on the market but they do deliver a hint of a tint
and are fragrance free, great for those who have sensitive noses and hate strongly scented lip products.
