I think one of the most disappointing aspects of drugstore makeup, aside from foundation, would have to be lipgloss. There are so many great choices available but most have short wear times, uncomfortable textures, or lack the pigment to keep a true beauty junkie happy.
What are some of your favorite drugstore glosses?
I think topping my fav chart at the moment are Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss.
Take a look, tell me if you agree!
I’d be lying if I told you I found these to be the most comfortable drugstore lipgloss around. The thinner consistency lacks tack or stickiness which is a perk and also have a lightweight, barely there texture but some reason or another they feel odd on my lips at first application.
The Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss formula runs fairly thin but not watery. It’s not sticky or tacky but has a surprisingly good grip that holds out for at least four hours of wear without eating or drinking. They have a nice light feel on lips but they are somewhat noticeable during first application and don’t exactly make you forget you have gloss in place. I find smacking my lips together a few times removes the strangeness of the gloss feel and gets things smooth and soft again. The glide is fairly nice even on drier lips and the sponge applicator has a nice flexible tip so it contours to lips in a smooth, even slide as your apply the gloss. Color payoff is fairly nice here and can go from sheer to medium within a few layers. The glosses have a faint sparkle, subtle little gleaming finish that isn’t too disco ball-ish or over the top sparkly.

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss aren’t the most suburb gloss formula I’ve ever tried but they are as close to great as you can get at the drugstore. I find the gloss selection a bit lacking at the drugstore. Eyeshadows have definitely evolved in recent years as well as other products but I think gloss formulas need a little work. Colorburst Lipgloss proves that brands are starting to pay closer attention to the gloss formulas they are putting up and out there in the budget world.
Not great but fairly good.
Worth checking out!
