Okay so I know that everyone has raved and raved about the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters for the longest time and I am probably one of the last to review them! Fail. Anyways, I have fallen head-over-heels in love with these bad boys! They are just heavenly! Okay, now on to the review!
These lip butters have beenon the market for quite some time now. I remember finding out about them through MissGlamorazzi’s review video. I decided that I simply had to try them! The first color I ever bought was Strawberry Shortcake, which is a cool-toned, baby pink color that is perfect for everyday wear. I thought it would be a great product to have in the spring and the summer in particular. It is very wearable, not super pigmented, but certainly not invisible.
I love this color to death! It is still one of my all time favorites!
A month or two later, I decided I wanted a color that was a little more bold. I decided that I would hop on the train of everyone wearing berry colored lips and bought the color Berry Smoothie. At first I thought this color would be way to bright and that I would never wear it. It is a pink-toned berry lip. You can just dab it or do one swipe for a nice subtle pink pout. OR, you can swipe that stuff on like there is no tomorrow and have the perfect bright berry lips. I frequently wear it both ways. In fact, this has been one of my most worn lipsticks. The color, even when applied with a heavy hand, is perfect for everyday wear if you do a softer eye.
I then decided I wanted to buy a red lipstick. I do not wear red lips. I had never found a red that I thought looked good on me, try as I may. Being quite fair complected and having lighter features, every red seemed far too fire-engine red to work for me. I decided to try going in a vampire, blue-toned, red direction. I found out that the lip butters, which I was now loving with all of my heart, had a color that matched the idea for my new red perfectly. I thought “what the hey?!” and bought it. The color is Red Velvet. OMG! I LOVE THIS COLOR SO FREAKING MUCH! I know, fangirl rant. Don’t judge. Anyways this is the perfect blue-toned red lipstick. It is very pigmented but if you jusst dab it on, you get a wonderful berry stain. However if you do a full swipe of this stuff, BAM! Welcome to Red Town! Population: YOU. I love the color. I know this will sound crazy, but it is actually a wearbale red color? What?! Yep, uh huh. Wearble. As long as you keep the rest of your makeup understated, you are all set. YOu cna look so put together with just this lip color and some mascara and I love that!
Overall, the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are fantastic! I think the color selection is amazing, ranging for neutral, natural colors, to wild, crazy colors for the bold! The pigmentation varies, but I think that each one was designed like that to make each color work and be wearable. These are lip butters, so they are actually very, very hydrating. You can wear these without needing any lip balm or gloss to help keep your lips moisturized. The finish on these is somewhat glossy, which is nice, but you can pat on a little bit of sheer loose powder to make them matte if you feel the need to do so. These also last on your lips pretty well. Much better than a gloss, however lip stains last far longer. These wear just like your average lipstick and you will probably have to touch up once or twice throughout the day, but the same thing rings true with any other lipstick on the market.
Color Selection: Awesome, huge range!
Pigmentation: Great, but varies with color
Finish: Shiny and glossy but not as much as a lip gloss
Staying Power: About the same as your average lipstick
Available At: Drugstores and Ulta
