Swatches: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters Part 1

From Left to Right: 005 Sugar Frosting, 080 Strawberry Shortcake, 055 Cupcake, 060 Gumdrop, 045 Cotton Candy

Hey beauties! Sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I've just been really unmotivated to blog because the quality of my pictures are not what they used to be. In my previous condo, I had a balcony; therefore, I could take product pictures in natural lighting. However, I haven't found a spot in my new condo where I can take clear pictures. Please bear with me for the time being. =)

Revlon's ColorBurst Lip Butters* claim "to boost lip moisture by 156%." Although, these lip butters feel more moisturizing than lipsticks, I find that I still need to wear a lip balm before I apply the lip butters because my lips get chapped easily and they're very dry.

In order for the color to show up better, these shades have been swatched heavily.

I didn't detect any taste or smell with any of the lip butters, which is a big plus for me. Also, the shades that I have swatched in this post are all pretty sheer, but they do provide a hint of color. (Other Revlon's lip butters, which I will swatch soon, provide a more opaque finish.) They all glide onto my lips effortlessly and they all feel buttery smooth. However, because the formula is so buttery, the product can get messy when you're twisting it back into the tube.

Nevertheless, I still recommend checking these out at your local drugstore, especially if you're a fan of subtle and sheer lip shades. Also, you can enter my current giveaway and get a chance of winning them. ^_^

Note: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters are available at Ulta, Target, and drugstore.com for around $7. As with any drugstore product, I would definitely wait for a sale because there is always a "buy one, get one half off" or even a "buy one, get one for free" sale.

Which shades have you tried and 
do you need to wear a lip balm before you apply it?

  1. The colors that you picked up looks amazing, I want to get some of the Revlon lip butter too! I myself am particularly fond of Strawberry Shortcake because that's the kind of pink that I have been looking for. Too bad I'll have to purchase this through the internet since we don't have drugstores that sells Revlon make up, or if they do, I think that only a small collection is available. *sigh* =(

    Anyway, I can't wait to see the other colors being swatched by you! :)
