Review + Swatch: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Hello, my pretties~! Yesterday, I went to Kelapa Gading mall to run some errands. Basically, I bought things that Mr. G needed over there at Singkawang, e.g. socks, towels, etc because I'm going there next week. Yeayy!! So excited!


Anyway, when I was about to go to Farmer's Market, I passed by the Revlon counter at STAR Department Store and saw that the lip butters are in. Being the product junkie that I am, I stopped to swatch a couple of them and bought four lip butters. Since I only got them yesterday, this is more of a swatch than a review. I'll update this post with a review after a week. In the mean time, enjoy the swatches~
Here is my bare lips without lip balm

Excuse my foundation-less face. I just stayed home all day, so I didn't apply any makeup. The first shade makes my face all washed out if worn alone. I think a little lip tint underneath will do wonders, as it will have color and staying power, while maintaining a healthy shine to the lips. 
This has to be one of my favorite shades. It gives my face a healthy, natural look even without any makeup. I can see this being my everyday lip color. 
This shade is one of the bolder colors, being a red-peach-coral combination. Surprisingly, it looks good on my face and is not too bright or overwhelming. I can see this being worn with a formal dress to weddings, parties, etc. 
This is my favorite shade of all the lip butters I bought. It is a fuschia pink shade that I don't have in my lip product collection. In real life, it looks more purple toned, but I don't know why it doesn't show on my camera.  
Last but not least, is the messy makeup remover towelette that helped remove the lip butters in between the swatches. 

My first impression on these lip butters are a moisturizing product that is in between a tinted lip balm and a lipstick. They have the properties of a lip balm, but with the pigmentation of a lipstick. As for staying power, I'll have to update you on that soon. 

UPDATE : This is going to be a short review. I like how moisturizing they are and the wide range of color availability. Also, the application is quite easy, just like using a tinted lip balm. However, the staying power isn't that great as it tends to disappear after a meal or a drink. 

I've added more colors to my collection and summarized it in one picture. Here it is, enjoy~
1. Peach Parfait, 2. Cherry Tart, 3. Berry Smoothie, 4. Tutti Frutti, 5. Strawberry Shortcake, 6. Lollipop, 7. Candy Apple, 8. Sweet Tart.
