Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters (Review & Swatches)

After seeing so many great reviews of these lip butters on YouTube, I knew I had to get them! I love them!<3 It's a plus that they aren't too expensive and are easily accessible since drugstores carry them! :) Price: ~ $7-8 Where: CVS, Rite Aid, Target (drugstores!)

These lip butters are part of Revlon's Colorburst line. I am very pleased that they come in a lip stick form. Most lip butters tend to come in a pot, which I can a bit unsanitary since you're constantly dipping your finger into it to get the product out. If you don't know what a lip butter is, it's kind of a hybrid between a lipstick and a lip balm. These lip butters are great because they are moisturizing with good color payoff!

The design of the packaging is very similar to their other Colorburst lip products with the criss-cross pattern. The packaging is very sleek and with a silver tube, and you would use it just like you would a normal lipstick. The top of the cap is clear so you can easily the true color of the product inside.

Although these lip butters have sweet dessert names, they do not have a scent or taste to them. I don't really mind though because I don't like some of the scents/taste of certain lip products so this doesn't bother me at all.

This product glide onto the lips very nicely and they are moisturizing. Of course they don't last as long as a normal lipstick. The wear of these are probably a few hours, maybe even longer if you don't eat or drink anything. I wouldn't mind having to reapply them though since they are so easy to use. These lip butters also have a glossy finish, and they aren't sticky at all. What I love most about these is the pigmentation. You would expect them to apply really sheer, but the color payoff is great! You can apply one coat for a sheerer look or apply multiple layers to make the color stand out a bit more on your lips.

I only have 5 colors from this line right now but I will definitely be purchasing more! These are the ones that I currently own:

* Candy Apple (bright red)
* Tutti Frutti (medium bright coral)
* Sweet Tart (medium warm pink)
* Strawberry Shortcake (light pink)
* Creamsicle (pale creamy orange)

Overall, I am very impressed with these lip butters! They apply just like a lip balm, but have the pigmentation of a lipstick. Every time I go to the store to look for new shades, they are always sold out! But don't be disappointed if you can't get your hands on them yet because these are not limited edition! They will be part of Revlon's permanent collection starting 2012. You should definitely pick up a few shades if you can! I don't think you'll be disappointed because I sure wasn't! :) <3
