AMW Reviews: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters

When I received Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butters for review, it took some time for me to stare at the lovely 4 shades because ---

1. The packaging - I really like how the cap is the same shade as the lipstick.
2. The color - don't you just love the color even before removing the cap?  
3. The name - LIP BUTTER

The shades that I currently own 
040 Red Velvet
001 Pink truffle
080 Strawberry Shortcake
055 Cupcake

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters ----


  • Buttery Balm + Shiny Color
  • Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated.
  • Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
  • Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
  • Sheer to medium color with buttery shine
  • Available in 20 luscious shades



AMW says ---
Pros
  • Great packaging!  Revlon never fails with lipstick packaging!  I like the easy access to the right lip color just by looking at their packaging!
  • All the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are sealed upon purchase.  
  • Ingredients list listed (but I need someone with good eyes to help me read it lol!)
  • Can be applied sheer to pigmented.
  • Applies smoothly.
  • Available in, I think 20 shades?  (Not sure how many they have locally).
  • Each of the lip butter shades have a unique "sheen" in which, you can skip lip gloss application if your lips aren't very dry.
  • Doesn't feel heavy on lips as opposed to other lipsticks.
  • No weird scent.
  • Not waxy at all.
  • I actually like lipsticks to be shaped like the Revlon Lip Butters as they are easier to apply.
Cons
  • If they don't have "lip butter" in it's name, I would say it's okay but I was expecting these to be more moisturizing!  
  • Re-application will be needed, just like regular lipsticks.
  • Regular lipsticks are 3.8g, this is 2.55g (which can be a PRO if you easily get tired of a lip color)
Overall
The Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are in between tinted lip balm and lipstick, they're not as moisturizing as tinted lip balm but they are not completely drying as regular lipstick!


Tips
  • Since these aren't totally moisturizing, prep your lips by using your choice of lip balm prior to application.
  • Before applying the Colorburst Lip Butter, pat on excess moisture with a tissue.
  • Darker colored shades can be applied with a lip brush.
  • To remove excess moisture from Revlon Colorburst Lip butters, pat translucent powder on lips while covering it with a tissue.
  • Try on testers as shades may look differently on tube and on your lips!
Will I repurchase?
Yes. 

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who loves lipsticks with a sheen! :)

Where to purchase and how much?
At Revlon Counters (Watsons ONLY for now) for Php525.00 (approx $12.00)

L-R Red Velvet Pink Truffle, 
Strawberry Shortcake and Cupcake


Swatches on Hand


Red Velvet
This is a super toned-down version of MAC's Red She Said with a whole lot of moisture! 

Pink Truffle
If there's one lipstick that looks exactly just like my lip color (with the added moisture), it would be Pink Truffle!  The name could have pink to it but it's more of a deep coral shade.  Since this is the better version of my lips!  If I want to look effortlessly good, I would pick this up!  This may turn out a bit more pinkish to other girls with light colored lips!

Strawberry Shortcake
I can't put it if this pink lipstick is on a cool or warm tone.  I guess it goes in-between.  If I want something that would give me a baby pink color minus the nude and sickly look, I would go for this! 

A medium or dark colored eye makeup would be much appreciated for someone with the same skin tone as mine!  Medium to dark colored skin can sport this...on its own!


Cupcake
Cool toned pink lipstick that makes me look sick without any eye makeup on but this looks wonderful on dark, smokey eyes!


Though I want to be selfish and want them all, help me pick one and I'll put the rest inside my train case :)
HELP? :D

  23. i never did like lip butters though...i find that lip butters are more into locking moisture than providing moisture... or is it just me?

    but you are right when you said that the packaging of these babies are gorgeous because they are!

    so cute!!!!

    1. This one does not provide the moisture that we get from lip balms but it does just KEEP the moisture that your lips had on. Since my lips doesn't have any of those, that's the reason why I use lip balm prior to usage.

  24. Pink truffle looks the best on you! Thank you for the headsup that they are already available...I am really waiting for them to reach our shores haha ^_^
