Obsessed with Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Butter!

Colors 1

Ever since last summer, I’ve been obsessed with Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Butter! These moisturizing color lip balms are sheer but have just enough color to brighten your look. I love that they are shiny and are one of those lip products that you can put on without looking in a mirror (although I think you should!). To me, they are easy and fun. And at roughly $6.50 a pop, they’re an affordable indulgence. I purchased my last one at Target (here) but you can get them at anywhere Revlon products are sold.

Revlon promotes their lip butters as containing mango, shea and coconut butters so that they will boost lip moisture by 156%. I find them very hydrating and while they don’t last more than two hours or so for me, I don’t mind reapplying. For the price, they’re a great multitasking product (lip balm, lip color and I’ve even used them on my cheeks!).

In my experience, Revlon’s lip butters provide sheer color but a couple of the shades I have are pretty pigmented. I’ve swatched my collection so you can see how they work and look with lighter skin tones.

Pink Truffle
A neutral medium pink.

Tutti Frutti
A light coral that has slightly more pigment than some of the other colors when worn on the lips.

Light, sheer peach. Looks more pigmented in the tube than it is on the lips.

Juicy Papaya
Sheer coral/peach.

Fig Jam
Scary” brown in the tube but sheer on the lips. This one reminds me of Clinique’s Black Honey, which I absolutely love! A great neutral!

Candy Apple
Nicely pigmented warm red.

Red Velvet
Nicely pigmented cooler red. This is a great “starter red” if you like red but are not comfortable with bright, opaque red lip color.
