Hey Beauty Babes!
Revlon put out a new lip product that has been getting lots of buzz around the beauty community lately. This product is a cross between a few different things. When you first apply this product to your lips, it feels like a lip balm but has the color payoff of a lipstick and it also gives off a shiny finish like a gloss! So what is this hybrid-like product, you may ask!? It is the extremely hyped, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter!
It took me quite a while (and I mean weeks!) to actually get my hands on these lip butters. I kept looking EVERYWHERE I went, and they were either sold out or not in stock yet. But after searching for what seemed like, forever, I did end up finding them at a Walgreens, which was located about a half hour away from my house. The display for the lip butters is separate from the permanent display, so if you don't see them with the Revlon products, keep looking or ask for help. These retail for about $7.99, but I got mine on a buy one get one half price deal. Now, even if I didn't get these on sale, I still would have purchased them at full price, because these little tubes of lipstick goodness are AMAZING! :)
Now, at first glance they look like a regular lipstick -- actually they look VERY similar to the Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks (the ones in the quilted, sleek black tubes). But instead of having the color swatch on the top of the tube, the lip butter shows the color of the product on the entire cap.
I picked up two colors, a medium berry shade called Berry Smoothie and a brighter pink shade, called Sweet Tart. When I took the cap off to try out the product, I noticed the consistency was extremely soft, which is nice because usually the softer the product, the more moisture it will provide! There was a bit of gold shimmer in both lip butters, but it wasn't much. Actually, I could only see the shimmer in the tube and when I swatched it on my hand, but when I wore it on my lips, the shimmer wasn't noticeable at all.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart which is a nice bright pink shade and is my favorite out of the two.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie, which is a medium berry color with sparkle. It is a bit more sheer than Sweet Tart, but still very pretty!
I first tried on Berry Smoothie. The color looks a lot darker in the tube, but when worn, it actually comes off a bit sheer. Even though it is a little sheer, you still get a nice light wash of berry color that I think would look great on a variety of different skin tones. Sweet Tart is my favorite out of the two colors. It is a nice vibrant pink and actually shows up better than Berry Smoothie. If you have lighter skin with brown or green eyes, I think Sweet Tart would look amazing on you and you should definitely pick it up when you get the chance.
Berry Smoothie is on the top and Sweet Tart is on the bottom. As you can see, a little bit of golden shimmer shows up when swatched.
These lip butters do feel great on the lips. They are very moisturizing and do give you a nice bit of color and shine, but the staying power is lacking a little. I wore these for about three hours before I had to reapply. Now, reapplying often does not really bother me much. I would rather wear a very comfortable, moisturizing lipstick that I have to reapply every few hours then wear a drying lip color that stays on for most of the day. So if you do not mind reapplying, then I would DEFINITELY say, give these babies a go!
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters come in a variety of colors - 20 shades in all! They have several pinks, reds, purples, peaches and nude choices. So, whatever color you are after, you will be sure to find it! Next time I head to the drugstore, I plan on picking up several more!
Have you tried the lip butters yet!? Do you think they live up to the hype!? What is your favorite color out of the collection?!
Stay forever beautiful!
Love and hugs!
