Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters!

These itty bity lip butters are all the rage, aren't they? I've been lusting them for a little while now. At first they reminded me of the Clinique lip butters. I picked up 2 colors - Cotton Candy and Peach Parfait.


I absolutely adore the packaging! It's Revlon's best yet -- Very feminine and simple. Some argue the packaging is for tween aged girls, but I think they're really pretty. It never crossed my mind as such, because I think the packaging has won over many many people.



Here are some swatches!

Cotton Candy -- It's a true baby pink with a pretty sheen



Peach Parfait -- A very pretty pink with golden shimmers. 



These are exactly what they claim to be -- buttery! They're buttery rich and balmy and perfect for your daily lip. They don't last very long but that's just as well because they don't make any sort of that claim. The ones I have are nourishing and leave my lips feeling hydrated and soft.

They have a synthetic vanilla smell. It's light enough not to bother me, but they really should make it fruitier instead. 

Overall, I still really like these. They're priced fairly at around $8.00 each, but we all know to take advantage of drugstore deals when they have BOGO or coupons. Never buy these for regular price. 

I'm on the lookout for more! 


Lip butters -- yay or nay?

I've been wanting to get Peach Parfait and Raspberry Pie. Need to get those soon but they're always gone!! :T

Elizabeth King said...

I need to get me some more lip butters! ^_^

Dovey said...

I love cotton candy--- it's such an everyday pink :)

Fifi said...

I wasn't impressed by these lip butters but I do think the color choices are nice. :) Have you tried L'oreal Colour Riche Balms? I heard they were more moisturizing but with less pigmentation than Revlon Lip Butters. I want to try those but unfortunately they aren't being released in Indonesia. :(

yay for lip butters!!!

Mandy said...

It would be so nice if Revlon scented each one based on their name... :-(

Jacqueline said...

I'm glad you are enjoying these, I have not had much success with them. The swatches of Cotton Candy looks sweet though. :)

Eden-Avalon said...

Huge nay for me. I also picked up two and didn't feel they deserved to be promoted as healing or balms. Also because my lips are so strongly pigmented - the color didn't show up well at all on me.

I am hoping to get my hands on these when I get back to the UK!

pricillia lumantoro said...

I want the cotton candy:)

Pammy said...

It's a nay for me because they do actually melt as quickly as real butter does. Maybe not in cooler places but in here, it does melt fast because of the heat. :\

SilhouetteScreams said...

I still need to get some of these! I feel like the only person who doesn't have any XD

Tiffany-kim said...

I have peach parfait too! I also have sweet tart, and I really like them :D I don't really smell a vanilla scent though..

Nic Nic said...

Nice picks - peach parfait is just my kind of colour :P

Amyboo said...

Everywhere I go, everybody seems to have these babies! I'm waiting for the drugstore near my house to restock on the colors I like...:)

Penelope said...

Thanks for the post! Such pretty shades. I'm really looking forward to these lip butters reaching the UK!

Gellie Abogado said...

A lot of people have really been blogging and loving the product. You've picked good shades! :)

Sunny said...

I'm glad these worked for you! I'm a bit disappointed, but that's also because I had to get them off eBay. If I could get them at 8 dollars in the local drugstores, I'd probably be a lot happier with them :p

Jian said...

Cannot wait for these to be launched in the UK!!! :D Love the way that peach parfait looks! I am really interested in grabbing the dark colours though, like berry smoothie, and I heard that macaroon will be gorgeous!

rolala said...

So many beauty bloggers are buzzing about these but the reviews have been so mixed. I think I need to get one to try for myself.

Alex Elkins said...

I love these! I have Peach Parfait and Strawberry Shortcake. I love them so much I picked up a few more for my friend in Japan :D She loves them too!

EveryDay Makeup blog said...

I love how these are called lip butters. They just sound so moisturizing and delicious lol.

Ashley said...

I love the packaging, it reminds me of the higher end products sold at Sephora! I probably won't buy unless I can do a bogo or something like that (I really don't use much lip products), but I am digging that pink shade:)

I just picked one up the other day after hearing all the hype about them. can't wait to try.

ShinyPrettyThings said...

i really like these!! but not all colors have as nice pigmentation. peach parfait is one of my faves :D im so tempted to collect them all hahhaa

Isabel said...

I wanted to try Peach Parfait but from swatches, I may not like the shimmer

Laces and Shades said...

I dared myself to pick up the lollipop. It was very pink, and I love it. Got it from Target for $6.50. This line is definitely very moisturizing. I've very chapped lips. For months I didn't think I would be able to wear lip colors and was on the verge of giving up. So glad Revlon came out with this.

mayaari said...

I really like the packaging - it's similar to their colorburst lipsticks, but the semi-transparent tops make it look a little nicer than a regular drugstore product, and if you've got more than one shade it's easy to find the color you want to wear!

Blush said...

I love both shades you have there - I'd choose those ones if only they were available in the UK. Still waiting...

Popcorn said...

I've seen numerous blog posts about these babies, but I just haven't had the willpower to go buy them. haha since im not a big fan of lip products. But that Peach one is looking niceee.

Annie Banannie said...

lovely! I'm eyeing on this too! would love to have the berry smoothie!.. i envy you!

Eugenia said...

I like them!!! They are so pretty!

Rinny said...

I hate buying into the hype but I have to agree that this is one product that certainly lives up to its claims. I also bought both these colors (along with 4 other ones lol) this weekend. I haven't tried them all yet but I'm already loving the colors I've worn ^^

Blackmentos said...

They just arrived in Singapore but only in 8 shades! :( Better than nothing! They are so buttery and lovely, not as long lasting as lipstick of course but wonderful nonetheless. I was tempted to get peach parfait but im scared coral won't suit my skin! :)

Kumiko Mae said...

i think lip butters in general are all the rage now! :D they have so many shades, i think you did an absolutely wonderful job trimming them down to two!

sugar sugar said...

didn't like these but cotton candy is a super pretty shade! haha! :D

faye said...

These haven't launched in the uk yet :( I can't wait to try them.

sleepandwater said...

These two look gorgeous, great picks! Can't wait for them to go on sale where I live.

rhaindropz said...

you want to try them out ^_^
