Revlon Colorburst Lip Glosses in Papaya and Rosegold

These are two pretties I used frequently throughout the summer.



Papaya is a bright coral-orange with a creme finish. It is semi-opaque.

Rosegold is a soft rose pink with shimmer. It is semi-opaque, but I liked it best over a lipstick. I think anyone lighter than me could wear this by itself. It’s possible that tanned folks could also wear it alone, but it may be too subtle.

I am really pleased with both shades. They last a few hours (unless I eat a messy meal) and don’t feel sticky or thick. I often wore Papaya over NARS Success, and I wore Rosegold over Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 08.
