Revlon Colorburst Lipstick Fashion's Night Pout review

Revlon Fashion’s Night Pout

I love Revlon’s Colorburst lipsticks.  They are pigmented, creamy, and wear for hours on me.  I’ve had Soft Nude for a long time now and it’s been my go-to lipstick (frequently worn when I’m too tired to think at 5am getting ready for work) ever since.  I remember reading about Fashion’s Night Pout last year during the Fashion’s Night Out event.  The lipstick was designed by makeup artist Gucci Westman to be the perfect universal nude and was a very limited release.  You could only buy it at the event and you’d have to shell out $50 to get it.

That’s not the case anymore.  Revlon has released this as part of a very small limited edition collection alongside a Chanel Black Pearl dupe called Black With Envy.  And it’s now the same price as any other Revlon lipstick.  If I had been one of the few to purchase Fashion’s Night Pout for $50 back in September, I can tell you that I would be pretty salty about seeing it on a shelf at Ulta for $5.39 (normally $8.99 but Revlon was 40% off that day).  To be perfectly honest, I feel a little silly for having spent $5.39 on it considering the fact that it’s nearly identical to Soft Nude.  The biggest difference between the two is that FNP is significantly sheerer than Soft Nude.  I think that’s why it can work for a wider range of skin tones.  To my eye, FNP might be sliiiightly warmer than Soft Nude, but the difference is incredibly subtle.  I know the urge is strong to go chase down a highly-sought-after shade like this, but if you already own Soft Nude, you don’t need both!  I’ll probably keep one in my makeup artistry kit and the other in my personal stash.
