Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Papaya Review, Swatches & Comparison

RiteAid had some random Colorburst Lipglosses on sale for 75% off a few weeks back and I was able to snag Papaya, a lovely coral with a faint microshimmer.  I don't know if it being so deeply discounted means that Revlon is discontinuing this shade and I don't see it currently listed on their site, but that would be a shame if so.  It's a winner, in my humblest.  Vibrant without being overwhelming, this is a great summer color.

I find the Colorburst Lipglosses to be comfortable on and last about 2 hours on me before needing to be reapplied.  They are relatively non-sticky and do have some hydrating ingredients such as sweet almond oil, avocado and olive fruit extract,  hyaluronic acid, and vitamin e. 

I dug out some of my other glosses and lip balms to compare, and the closest in color ended up being another new item I got recently, Clinique's Chubby Stick in Mega Melon.  No dupes, though.

There are some online retailers such as Amazon still carrying Papaya and the price seems to range from $5-7.

  1. This is pretty! Such a nice sheer punch of colour. I have one of these glosses and really like the texture- not too sticky like MAC lip glasses!
