Revlon’s Plum Colorburst Lipstick

This is another shade that looks surprisingly good on me! So many of the deeper reds don't appeal to me because they're so warm. This is most definitely a cooler shade, not completely purple-red, but not a “warm” red at all. I apply mine and blot, and it doesn't apply as dark as you might think, just looking at the lipstick. I like this shade a lot more than I thought I would! (Another plus of deep, cool lip colors: they don't highlight how not-white my teeth are quite as well as vampy reds.)

Like the other Colorburst colors I own, this applies very smoothly and lasts well. Because it's a darker shade I noticed that it needed re-application after about four hours - the lighter shades don't seem to need re-application so obviously, quite as quickly.
