Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Has anyone noticed that these things are all the rage lately? I've seen numerous reviews and advertisements for them! I had to try them out for myself, so I picked up three different colors; Strawberry shortcake, candy apple, and peach parfait! Apparently they are very popular, because the display was practically empty at Target when I went to buy them.
These Revlon Colorburst lip butters are kind of like a mix between a lipstick and a lip balm (but you probably already guessed that). I would describe them as "a very pigmented chapstick." See the photos and continue down for more...

They look just like regular lipsticks with the case and the twist up design. There's also a little "window" at the top so you can see the color in the tube.

Here they are on my lips. My least favorite is the Strawberry shortcake, because they color just doesn't sit right on my lips. My favorite is the Peach parfait, because I love the natural, coral-y color for everyday. The candy apple is also my favorite... It's a sheer, flattering red.

I'm definitely not a lipstick kind of person because I don't like dramatic colors on my lips, plus the dryness you tend to get when wearing them. These feel just like wearing lip balm, but with lots and lots of semi-sheer color! I definitely recommend these for everyday wear. There are a TON of color options available as well. I know I'll be back for a couple more shades...

Has anyone else fallen into the lip butter craze? What shades did you get?


  1. Revlon used to have something similar called "lipslicks" (I think that was the name, at any rate!) that I adored - a mix between a lipstick and balm, but with shine similar to lipgloss! I didn't know they'd released a similar version of the old line, so now I'm really excited to go check it out. Does it come in any colors, or are these it? I'd prefer something a little darker, I think!

  2. i been wondering about these too! i have seen them on tv commericials. i like the fact they feel like lip balms because my lips get really try too.
    my fave on you is the peach parfait too. lookings very pretty and natural!

    Hi Ping! :)
    They feel really good on your lips! I've been wearing them every day! The peach parfait is definitely my favorite. It's perfect for everyday.

  4. I love those butters! :) I have two of them.. (coral)orange and nude (I forgot the name of them). It does makes my lips feel so much better, since I have a horrible chapped lips (Plus I have a bad habit of biting my lip skins off)

  5. My favorites are Peach Parfait and Berry Smoothie, and once I get done with Berry Smoothie I will try Pink Truffle, Cherry Tart, Sweet Tart, Tutti Fruiti, and Candy Apple. Maybe even fig jam but not sure yet.

  6. Hi. I've got Pink Truffle (favorite so far), Cherry Tart, Sugar Plum, and Red Velvet. They're all really pretty and moisturizing. The Red Velvet is too dark for me by itself, so I apply it over blotted L'Oreal Fairest Nude, that takes it down a notch. I'm going to go buy Crème Brulee and Peach Parfait this morning. :-)
