Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter (Candy Apple)

August 18, 2013

If there were to be a top ten consisting of the beauty products most raved about, Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Butter would be in it! An extremely moisturising yet very pigmented lip product, that sounds amazing. No wonder that this product is so popular among beauty lovers!



Therefore, I couldn’t resist buying a Lip Butter when I saw them at a drug store in Groningen a few weeks ago. I bought the shade #035 Candy Apple, it’s a sheer red that’s both glamorous and wearable.

Ah, the famous Colorburst Lip Butter packaging. It’s beautiful!

Here’s a swatch of the product, the left photograph was taken in the shadow and the other one in the sunlight. You can see that the lipstick doesn’t have any glitter in it, which doesn’t mean it can’t be very shiny! In real life the lipstick tends to look more like the second picture, shiny and juicy like a (candy!) apple.

Maybe you can already tell from this picture: the formula of this lipstick is so creamy and moisturising! It really feels like a lip balm, maybe even better… Of course we all know the downside of such a formula: the lasting power isn’t great. Just like almost every other highly moisturising lip product, this one needs to be re-applied after a few hours. But hey, if that means I can glide that lovely buttery lipstick over my lips once again, count me in!

Just one more downside: I sometimes find it hard to spread the Lip Butter evenly over my lips. Every now and then I find that I have to take an extra moment to make the result look smooth, but maybe this depends on your lips or the way of application.

Here’s a full face picture (click here to see the corresponding FOTD blogpost), now let’s talk about the pay off provided by the Lip Butter! I would say it’s medium coverage, which results into a fresh red/pink lip perfect for any occasion. That’s the reason I love this lip product so much, because of it’s versatility. Oh and because it feels HEAVENLY on your lips.

Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Butter is a moisturising, creamy, shiny, pretty, soft and sheer lipstick – and I’m loving it. The commercial is adorable, too!

      What are your thoughts on that one? I’m thinking of buying a few Kissable Balm Stains myself, I’ve heard great things about them!
