Drugstore Gem: Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Soft Nude

This will be short and sweet. There is a really good lipstick at the drugstore made by Revlon. Its from their Color Burst line with the simple sleek black packaging and snakeskin like texture on the case. What makes this lipstick special? It has a great consistency, very creamy, hydrating, but not so moisturizing that it lacks staying power or slides off your lips. That being said, it isn't at all drying. Color Burst is an appropriate name for the line because color it has and color it shows. These lipsticks are very opaque and rich in color, so if its sheer you're looking for, you will have to pass this one by. In the past I've tried the "Carnation" shade, which is a very bold without being over the top, pink. This time I went for the "Soft Nude" to compliment my other favorite, Revlon Petal Peach Super Lustre. Soft Nude is gorgeous and one of my favorite nude lipsticks by far. It isn't too orange, too concealer-ish, too pink, or too much of anything at all. Except perfection. Since "nude" is a very subjective shade, I will say that it is not a concealer nude like Mac Myth or Revlon Nude Attitude from the Matte line. I did some swatches with my other nude lipsticks that are in the current rotation so you can see how it compares. Around $7-$8 on average. And honestly, that's cheap for the quality you are getting in the Revlon Color Burst lipstick.
