Review, Swatch - Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

Lazy Sunday afternoon is perfect for playing with your new lippies. :)
I've had a headache all day so I ditched my usual Sunday rehearsal and swatched my new Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters instead.





Overall, they are great great drugstore lip colors with excellent feel and wear.
I have this unrealistic expectation built up for these since everybody was raving about them, so I admit I was a tiny bit underwhelmed, but that does not mean these are just okay products.
I repeat, they are great! :D

They feel quite moisturizing and I love how they feel so light on lips.
These give you light to medium coverage with a little bit of sheen and fade away nicely.
(Interesting thing is that these lip butters feel almost the same as my ColorBurst Lipstick in Candy Pink which is a lot sheerer than other ColorBurst Lipsticks.)

My only complaint is that it seems the colors are nothing new and looks like they are recycled from Revlon's other lip products. Then, I realize I can't really complain about this since Revlon has such a wide range of lip colors and I enjoy many of them.  ;)

Now, on to the swatches..

Gumdrop
super-pale lilac shade
very chic and pretty, but you'd look completely washed out without proper eye makeup and blush
It is very close to Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Lilac Pastelle
You can see the color shows up on my lips is pretty close to the color of cap.


Cotton Candy
This is very pretty pink with bit of champagne shimmer.
girly pink that is very easy to wear.
I think it is a little boring, though.


Sweet Tart
It is my favorite out of the six colors I have.
bright pink with coral undertone.
(I am sorry, I did everything to fix the excessive blue undertone, but  this lip swatch is still not accurate.)
This is very very close to my ColorBurst lipstick in Candy Pink color. oh, well...


Cherry Tart
cherry red with glitters. 
The glitters are not very noticeable and the color is quite sheer. 
This would be nice for those who are afraid to wear full-coverage red lip colors. :)


Raspberry Pie
It is not a fuchsia color as it may appear in the picture. 
I think the name is about right. ;)
It is a nice pure raspberry color with sheer but buildable coverage.
The color payoff is very good.


Pink Truffle
This is a medium brown with pink undertone that is so perfectly office-appropriate.
I can see myself wearing this a lot to my downtown work. :)
(This swatch is pretty accurate.)

  1. Pink truffle is the most beautiful colour. xD After seeing all these blog posts about these lipsticks I want them so much, have to wait for them to hit Australia I guess.

  6. These are quite pigmented for what they are.. usually buttery lipsticks are more balmy than anything =p They look really good on you, especially Pink Truffle Cherry Tart :D

  10. It seems like everyone is raving about these....I want! Though Aus won't get them till next year.
    I was initially not too excited about these, the packaging really put me off because it looks so plastic but the formula sounds like a dream!

  13. for the past couple of years, revlon really has impressed me!
    the packaging is not so bad. it actually has my favorite kind of coverage and feel. i tend to not wear something that doesn't feel good on my lips even if the color is so pretty. so this is perfect for me. ;)
    i heard l'oreal now has some lip butters, too. lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. i am glad that i got pink truffle, too.
    i actually tried not to get all pinks and this color was my mandatory pick. haha :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. i agree!
    i can see pink truffle would work for anybody. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. thank you. ;)
    now i wanna try other brown/plum shades thanks to pink truffle. lol

    ReplyDelete
  17. i like the sheer but buildable coverage.
    also i think these in darker colors would be great options for faint hearts like myself. :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. thanks. i think i agree with you. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. i think cotton candy looks so pretty on you. perfetly sweet for sweet Miko. ;)
    i have this feeling that all other light pinks would be kind of similar, though.

    ReplyDelete
  20. hmmm maybe i should get more...
    (enabled by Liwu....) ^-^;

    ReplyDelete
  21. thank you!
    swatching is kinda fund once i get used to it. (confession - i thought it was tedious before. lol)
    now i am interested in darker colors more. do let me know if you like them yourself! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. pink truffle would look beautiful on you!
    it is very natural but has enough color, i can just wear simple eye makeup, too. :)

  24. I've seen lot of gurus raving this through utube..But haven't really seen the actual swatches..Look pretty nice though...I totally agree with you, they should have created new shades/color..the colors are quite neutral...But I love the last one though...appropriate for everyday use.hehe~...Thanks for sharing the swatches..=)

    Yay you found them! I remember you mentioned before that they were hard to find. I only bought one (Strawberry Shortcake) and I've been loving how moisturizing it is!
    Sweet Tart and Pink Truffle especially look stunning on you. Those are the colors I've been wanting to pick up. Hopefully they will suit me as well as they did on you.
    I totally agree with you on the color selection. I guess the R in Revlon means "recycle." But good thing the colors are nice!

    ReplyDelete
  52. hey Eva, how are you? good to see you here. :)

    i am glad they are going to be in the core collections. i wouldn't need to look for them hard from now on. i just hope i won't get obsessed with LE colors in the future. lol
    thank God, Revlon has so many pretty lip colors, right? :P
