Review: Revlon Lip Butters

12:53:00 AM

As most of you would probably know, I was invited to the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter launching a while back, and I have promised you a post to review the lip butters. So now, here we are.. it's time to review the lip butters! :)

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are the new Revlon lip products that just entered Indonesian market. I know this product has been a hit with so many beauty gurus on youtube and beauty blogs out there, and I remember I couldn't wait to get my hands on these lip butters. So now that they are finally here, I am so happy to finally able to review it.

The lip butters are a combination of "Buttery Balm + Shiny Color". 
It's a blend of lip balm + lip color in one simple product called : Lip Butters
It has the moisturizing function of a lip balm, but yet, unlike a lip balm which usually has no color, this lip butters have beautiful shiny color like a lipstick. So what you'll get is a lip color with total moisturizing effect. Perfect for dry lips !

The Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters has 20 colors to choose from, ranging from sheer nude colors to more pigmented colors. The name of the color variants were inspired from sweet candies such as Tutti Frutti, Lollipop, Creamsicle, Cotton Candy, etc..

The Lip Butter has a gel formula that contains a combination of Mango butter, Shea Butter, and Coconut Butter which gives a naturally smooth and hydrated feeling on the lips. 

From the launching event I got two lip butters inside my goodie bag. The color was random so everybody receive different colors of lip butters on their goodie bag. And lucky for me, I received some pretty colors that I can wear for everyday use:


I received :
Strawberry Shortcake (080) 
and 
Berry Smoothie (050)

Strawberry Shortcake is a pale pink color, while the Berry Smoothie is a pinkish plum color. The colors look pretty and they were encased in cute little semi-transparant casing where you could see the name of the color on the bottom, and the shade of the color from the top of the case which has a clear part so you can peek inside to see the color.

These lip butters glide on smoothly, thanks to the balmy texture. It feels like you're putting on a lip balm instead of a lipstick, but they tend to be on the sheer side so don't expect a full coverage lip color, but expect a sheer to medium coverage instead (depending on the color you chose). Overall, you'll get a lip color that looks natural with a healthy glow in it.

The lip butters I received are in the pink-berry shade, I'll show you the swatches and how they look on my lips. Note: Incase you want to do a comparison with yourself, my natural lip color is slightly dark and my face skin tone is medium beige.

One to two layers = sheer lip color
Multiple layers = a smooth pigmented color

As I've told you above, the Strawberry Shortcake is a pale pink shade, and the Berry Smoothie is a pinkish berry shade. One layer of the lip butter gave me a nice sheer color on the lips, but I prefer my lips to have more than a sheer color, so I layered them a couple of times more on my lips every time I wore them.

And here's how they look on my lips after several layers:

To get the color on the left pic I applied the pale pink Strawberry Shortcake in multiple layers so that the color will show, otherwise the color would be too sheer or too pale on my lips (because my natural lip color is dark). But I also love wearing it in one to two layers for daily use though. One layer would give an impression of a natural sheen color on my lips >> a big help for my otherwise dark lips ;)

But my favorite amongst the two is definitely the Berry Smoothie because the color is more suited to my skin tone. And it gave my lips a nice healthy look too.

The Strawberry Shortcake is more suited to women with brighter skin tone, because on tan skin the color didn't really show that much unless you layered it for a few times, but it's great if you love natural sheen on your lips for everyday use, just like I do ;)


Which color do you think suits me the most?
Left: Strawberry Shortcake - Right: Berry Smoothie

My take:
I love the balmy texture which is not sticky at all ! These are smooth and creamy, and has a texture of a good lip balm which keep my lips well-moisturized. These are also well-pigmented with a little glossy shine in it (the color variant ranges from sheers to deep color shades). And the colors look gorgeous on the lips!

Even after the color fades, the moisturizer is still there on the lips so it will keep your lips from looking dry. These lip butters are also buildable, so if you think the color is too sheer on your lips, you can re-apply it for a few times until you get the desired color.

So with one lip shade you can get:
  • a sheer natural color with 1 or 2 layers.
  • a more pigmented color if you layered it more.

The angled shape of the lip butter also makes application a lot easier, and the colorful casing / cap is cute enough to tote around in my make up bag.

Overall, I love it and would definitely buy more!


And to sum it up, here are the things that I love most about the Revlon lip butters:


Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters is @ IDR 75.000 and is available at Revlon counters, nationwide.


Other color I would love to have is the Sweet Tart which I tried on the launching event (and which I think would suit most skin tone), and Tutti Frutti which is an orange color that I also think would suit many skin tones.
