Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie - swatches, pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

With so much positive talk about the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters, I had to give one a try. Now that I've tried one I want more shades! I like them more than the L'Oreal Colour Riche Balms because the Revlon Lip Butter provides more color to my lips while still feeling hydrating. I picked up the shade Berry Smoothie, which is a pretty pink and feels great on my lips.

Check out my pics, swatches, stats, and review...

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses!

I believe this lip butter is named a lip "butter" because it feels like butter gliding onto your lips; not in a greasy way, but a smooth and soft way. It made my lips feel hydrated and look beautiful. I really love these!

Average wear. It didn't last very long on me, but I don't mind re-applying as needed.

Sheer to light color; it's not super sheer where you won't see the color, but it's not super pigmented either where it looks like a lipstick. It's somewhere in between. A perfect way to wear a lip balm.

Shade Info:
Currently available in 20 pretty shades. I only have one, but I really want more. I like these a lot. I have my eye on these shades: Sweet Tart, Strawberry Shortcake, Cherry Tart, Lollipop, and Creamsicle.

$6.00 to $8.00 depending where you shop (0.09 oz full size). Available at Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, etc. Basically everywhere Revlon cosmetics are sold.

Square tube that has a fishnet-like pattern. The cap is color-coordinating to the balm color (which seems to be a trend or the new norm); twist-up balm.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Review:
These are fantastic! I really love how my lips feel when I wear this. The shade, Berry Smoothie, is natural looking yet still gives my lips a little something extra. It's not really sheer, but it's not richly pigmented either. it's a soft color that looks pretty.

The hydration is nice; I mean, after all this is a lip balm -- even though it looks like a lipstick. I didn't feel the hydration lasted as long as others I've tried (the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color seems to be the best so far for hydration).

Overall a really great product that I'd love to get more of. Yes, I would recommend these!

  4. I like the lovely shade of this lip butter. I love lip palms with some little extra color and this one looks like a perfect for one. I haven´t tried these myself, but I have read so many good reviews about these.

  5. I love the Lip Butters. They are so creamy and comfortable and still have lovely pigmentation. I own two and am planning to acquire a few more colours. So far, Berry Smoothie is my fave. :)

  6. I love these; I have fifteen of the shades and now I'm trying to figure out which five I don't have yet... I tend to pile them on because the color is so buildable but I see a lot of bloggers wearing them sheerly.

  7. I love these lip butters! I have Peace Parfait and Strawberry Shortcake.



  8. This is my favorite shade so far - it's MLBB! :)
