Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters (swatches & review)
I apologize for the sporadic nature of my posts lately, December is a busy busy month for me so bear with me folks. I’m thrilled that everyone seemed to enjoy my last post with makeup swatches! You cannot believe how incredibly nervous I was to post those!
Today I’ve got more makeup swatches to share, this time I’ve got the new Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters to show you all! These things are AMAZING! I’d been searching high and low for these ever since I’d first heard of them and I finally found a display of them at my local Target. I snagged four of them to start out with: Tutti Frutti, Candy Apple, Pink Truffle, and Sugar Plum.
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters
Candy Apple is a pretty orange leaning red creme, definitely one of my favorites. I’m wearing it a bit sheer in this photo but it’s quite pigmented and can be built up to a nice opacity. I wore in out on another occasion and built it up to a lovely bright red that really popped!
Sugar Plum is a gorgeous berry hued creme, but on my skin tone is looks like a neutral. I love this one! It’s very wearable for me and I can see myself using this one a lot in a multitude of settings. It’s like a glossy/balanced version of my natural lip color.
Pink Truffle really took me by surprise! It looks so much darker in the tube than it does on my lips. But I think if I built this up more I could play with the opacity a bit. I like it though, it’s a very feminine and light pink but not so bright that I fee like I’m Nikki Minaj.
And finally my favorite of the four I purchased, Tutti Frutti (love the name on this one)! It’s a splendiferous (there’s that word again…) orange coral creme and the color is friggin’ fabulous! I could wear this lip butter every day for the rest of my life and die happy. It’s just so fun and flattering and different, yet still wearable for warmer skin tones. Orange is also one of my favorite colors so I might be just a teeeeny bit biased.
OMG Y’all… These lip butters kicks all sorts of ass! I can see myself eventually owning all of the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters in the future. They have the softness and hydrating quality of a chapstick, but the pigmentation and color payoff of a lipstick. It’s like you get the best of both worlds! According to Revlon’s website some of the key ingredients are mango, shea, and coconut butter. These ingredients are relevant to my interests. I could usually get about 3-4 hours of wear time with these before I needed to touch up the color (more if I wasn’t eating or drinking).
So it’s a good thing these babies are getting added to Revlon’s permanent line of products! There is an extensive variety of shades and finishes (20 currently) to choose from. I ended up with all cremes this time around but there are plenty that have a fine shimmer finish that are available.
I purchased my Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters at Target for $6.49 each. You can also find them at Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens with pricing varying between $6.49 to $8.00ish per lip butter.
