Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm 225 in Sultry - Swatches and Quick Review

Revlon has always given us the best lipsticks, comparable to the expensive brands, for a lower price.

It is a smooth, moisturizing, matte lip crayon.
Thick crayon like packaging, doesn't require sharpening.
It looks red on some, pink on some, on me it is more like a marsala kind of color.
Highly pigmented, covers up perfectly even highly pigmented lips like mine, glides smoothly, very moisturising, long lasting.
Stays good for 4 hours, leaves a tint after that.
Doesn't require sharpening, which is the best part.

A little bulky kinda packaging.
Can get a little drying once it starts fading.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Fresh as Rose - A Quick Review and Swatch

Hoping the summer comes soon after all the snow and below freezing temperatures.

Fresh as a Rose is a pretty pink shade perfect for summer.

Moisturizing although I am not too impressed with the pigmentation, the lip swatch below is like a 5-6 swipes.

It is pretty sheer for pigmented lips like mine.

Lasting power is average, maybe 1 or 2 hours depending on what you eat or drink.

I like the shade a lot, this is by far the only pink that looks good on me hence use it sometimes, but otherwise I was not too impressed by the lipstick range.
