Revlon Colorburst Lip Glosses

Because Revlon’s Colorburst lipsticks became so popular so quickly, I was excited to try the Colorburst lip glosses when they came out. They run about $7-$8 at the drugstore, but I got them with a BOGO 1/2 off deal. The two colors I have are Strawberry (top) and Peony. The shade range is pretty comprehensive, with warm and cool shades, pinks, reds, nudes, a lovely peach (next on my list!), and a clear one too for good measure. I imagine that like Revlon’s other awesome lip gloss the Superlustrous gloss, limited edition shades will probably be released of these too. 
The first thing that struck me about these is how similar the packaging is to Chanel’s Glossimer lip glosses. See what I mean?
It’s a little hard to tell because of the angle, but the tubes are identical in length and width. The tube of Revlon’s glosses is a little bit longer (as in the cap starts lower down on the tube than on Revlon’s) but the packaging is very, very similar. I like it. It feels luxe without the Chanel price tag (what are they now, $28 apiece? yikes!)
The applicator on these is kind of weird though. It’s a doe foot, but it’s flat. It’s like a duck foot, lol. Here’s what I mean:
I’ve been told that the reason for these flat doe foot applicators is to “hug the lips” and provide more precise application in one coat. Kay. I just like poking fun at them because they’re kinda funny. But I’m mean. The glosses themselves are delightful! Both colors are very pigmented, and not sticky. They are a little thin and not quite as moisturizing as the Rain Cosmetics gloss I reviewed yesterday, but they’re still pretty nice. I’d recommend these to anyone who likes a lip gloss with a lot of color, but not much stickiness. They do have a scent, and it’s kind of hard for me to decide what I think it smells like. I guess the closest thing I can come up with is vanilla, but it’s not quite right. Vanilla root beer? What do you think?
