Review and Swatches: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in shade 55 Sienna

I got this lipstick from a blog sale by Corallista when I was in India. I never had any shades from this line of lipstick from Revlon so I thought I will give this a try even though Sienna didn't sound like a color I would really care for. I checked her blog review and thought that this is a pretty peachy brown shade.

Guess Revlon Colorburst lipsticks are not available now here in Canada [couldn't find them in many of my local stores]; I am not sure if they are still in stores in India. They cost around 550-600INR and are creamy non-shimmery solid colors. I like the packaging though I wish there was a way to see the bullet color but the top panel of the casing has the color matched on it.

The color applies beautifully, no complains on that. However I didn't like it as much as I like the Super Lustrous Creme formulas, I think SL creme ones stays longer and feels more comfortable on my lips. This lipstick gives full color in 1-2 swipes and can be applied better with the 'blot-apply-blot-apply-blot' formula for giving lips that stained matte look.

Sienna is a nice reddish brown with peachy tints. It is best suited for very fair to medium skin tones and IMO wouldn't be as flattering on darker skin tones. Remember Rachel from Friends Season 1-2?
This could be your daily office wear lippy if you pair it with a peachy nude or brown lip liner to add more definition or pair it with a peachy golden or reddish gloss for a day outing.

I am not a fan of this lipstick because: 1. It demands a perfect office look - perfect hair, perfect eyes and face and usually doesn't well with any dress colors other than earthy tones like Black. 2. It makes me look older :(.
However this was a color I often wore in office as it is a safe color - you can dab it on the way in the elevator when you have a sudden meeting and you just had a good lunch. Now that its expired, I am in search for a good reddish brown, so I will miss this.
