Review: Revlon Creme Gloss

I love the shine and staying power of MAC Lipglass but sometimes I wish its more pigmented - like lipstick. When Revlon sent me these babies, I got so excited and immediately played with them. Am I disappointed? Read on...

Revlon Creme Gloss in Patent Leather Pink, Crush on Coral and Peachy Sheen


PRODUCT INFO FROM REVLON:
The next-generation in lip gloss with both full-coverage color and extreme gloss shine. Collagen complex and light reflecting particles give lips a fuller appearance. Vitamin E and collagen condition for ultra-soft lips. Unique flow-through brush offers smooth, even application.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 475? Will verify.

WEIGHT : 1.18 ml

SHADES : Available in more than 10 deeply pigmented, high gloss shades.

PROS:
* the brush type applicator and the sleek packaging reminds me of my Stila Lip Glaze.
Pen type glosses are hygenic coz you don't double dip. After every use you can wipe the brush with tissue.
* consistency is thick - i prefer sticky and thick glosses
(like MAC Lipglass and Lancome Juicy tubes) coz they last longer.
* i love the smell! Not too overpowering.
* staying power is amazing! Applied it at 1pm... occassional sips of water + snacks at 3pm, by 5.30pm the color faded a bit but I can still see a bit of gloss is still left and my lips felt moisturised.


CONS:
* you have to twist the bottom end several times during the first use. Sometimes I end up twisting too much and a lot of product comes out.
* container holds a little amount of product (1.18ml). For reference, MAC lipglass has 4ml.
* some may find the texture tacky - if you don't like sticky glosses.


TIPS:
Don't forget to apply lipbalm first so that the creamy formula glides easily.

ADDICTION FACTOR:
This is pigmented like a lipstick but with the shine of a lipgloss. Perfect coz i love both! This creme gloss saves me time when I'm in a hurry.

RATING :
4 / 5

Wow I haven't seen any of these over here. Looks interesting! From your swatches they all have shimmers, eh? I kinda wish they don't. I love creamy matte glosses :)

The packaging really remainds of Stila lip glazes! And the color payoff is really great! Lovely shades!

@ Peachy Pink - yes Peachy Sheen and Crush on coral looks kinda similar but the latter is more shimmery.

Charrie said...

Thanks for this. How is it compared to nyx lipglosses?

Shopcoholic said...

@Charrie - Revlon is long wearing compared to NYX megashine and the latter is not as sticky as Revlon.
