REVLON LIP BUTTER REVIEW + SWATCHES

3 comments
 
Hey Ladies, 

Today is my chance to tell you a story about my experience of trying this famous Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter.

After attending the product launch event last month (you can read my report here), they gave me two shades of the lip butter, which are Raspberry Pie (fuschia) and Red Velvet (dark red), then I decided to buy other two color, which are Peach Parfait (peachy) and Tutti Frutti (orange)..

Basically, the product is a combination between lipstick and lipbalm. So it has a color and also a moisturizer for our lips that contains of mango butter, shea butter and also coconut butter. 

The yay thing is they bring all 20 shades of colors to Indonesia!!!
Tutti Frutti, Peach Parfait, Red Velvet, Strawberry Shortcake, Lollipop, Pink Truffle, Sugar Frosting, Raspberry Pie, Brown Sugar, Fig Jam, Cotton Candy, Berry Smoothie, Cupcake, Gumdrop, Creamsicle, Cherry Tart, Candy Apple, Sugar Plum, Sweet Tart and Cream Brulee. 



Each lip butter comes in lipstick style-tube with a semi transparent cap with a quilted pattern. Each color describes the color of the lipbutter. So it is easier for us to choose which color is our favorite without having to look at the bottom number. 


The thing that I don't like is the bottom part of the lipstick. It's just too small, so it's hard to handle and sometimes I have to hurt the lipstick while opening the cap (you can see Red Velvet and Peach Parfait were chipped by my nails while opening the cap) :(.

The texture is very smooth, buttery and it has a lil' bit scent of vanilla. The color is not too sheer, so it can still be used as a lipstick for formal event (medium cover). However, I still have to re-apply after I drink or eat something. Ohya, the color is different on every lips, depends on your natural color lips. My tip is if you want to build a strong color, just re-apply it 3 or 4 times :).

So, here they are, the swatches of the lipbutters 



Left to right: Peach Parfait, Tutti Futti, Raspberry Pie, Red Velvet

025  Peach Parfait
This shade is my favorite color, it looks good if you have a natural color eyeshadow. You can match it with a brownie or pinkish eyeshadow or just a wing eyeliner like mine :). It's really good for any daily wear make up.


 010 Raspberry Pie
This Raspberry pie has a cool tone color. Sort of like fuschia. Some people says that pink is the new black. So, I like to wear this color while I'm using a black clothes, so my lips would be a centre of attention.

 040 Red Velvet
 The red color always gives me a quick magic to my whole look :)

015 Tutti Frutti
This color is really a summery color. Orange always bring a good mood, so this color is also my favorite.




In conclusion :

Pro:
- Light and moist on my lips and gives a medium cover
- Affordable (Rp 75.000,-)
- Colored caps makes it easier to identify the lipbutter
- Wide range of colors (20 colors)

Cons:
- The bottom caps are hard to handle and open
- The color is easily fades, need to re-apply after few hours


OveralI, I can say that I'm pretty satisfied with this lipbutter. The colors are nice, feel good on my lips. It gives a medium coverage. Even tough, I dont like the small bottom cap that makes my lipstick hurts I still love this lip butter.

My favorite is Peach Parfait and Tutti Frutti, whats yours :) ?
