Review | Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters


Revlon lip butters are a beauty blogger favourite. I am pretty sure you have seen numerous reviews about these lip products and I know I'm pretty late to be reviewing them! These lip butters have been in the UK for a good few months ago now and I remember being so excited as I had seen so many amazing reviews from American bloggers and vloggers. The three colours I picked up were: Berry Smoothie (a deep pink/ plum) , Strawberry Shortcake (a bright, light pink) and Tutti Frutti (a bright orange).

The packaging of these lip butters is so sleek and good looking. I love that the plastic sleeves are the same colour as the actual product, so makes looking for the colour you want much easier. However, mine do have a few cracks in now so they're not the strongest packaging. I also really like the mirrored section of the product, it definitely makes it feel much more expensive than it was.

As for the actual product, you do not get that much in a tube. I've probably used about 1/4 of each of the lip butters and in the photos, they were all very nearly turned up fully. Also, the product is prone to melting and becoming dis-formed. As they're so soft heat, even from your handbag in summer, can just melt them. However, the fact they're so soft and lovely to apply is one of the main features I love about these lip butters. They feel like you're applying lip balm and that they are moisturising the lips. For me, I find that the pigmentation is really good. I have seen a few reviews where the product barely showed up on the person's hand or lips. When I apply this, it looks like I'm wearing a very shiny lipstick, just not hugely pigmented. As they're not heavy feeling, these are perfect for Summer but am still wearing them in the Autumn/ Winter months. The staying power is actually quite good considering they do not dry to the lips. They usually stay for about 3 hours if you don't eat and drink.

If you haven't tried these lip butters I really recommend you do! Definitely a must have in any makeup collection.

You can buy Revlon lip butters from Boots, Superdrug (which are both doing 3 for 2 deals on beauty items) and some supermarkets.

  3. Love these lip butters :) definitely one of my top lip products. Luckily, mine hasn't melted yet *touch wood* which is really good and the three that i have are - cotton candy -Tutti Frutti - Sweet tart. My favourite one is Tutti Frutti as i love orange/coral colours on my lips :) For this autumn, i am planning to invest in 'Berry smoothie' because it looks like a pretty colour that can be worn sheerly or built up to a more intense colour. Thanks for sharing your opinions and the lovely swatches.

    1. I think they're perfect for daily wear, so if you choose a nice pink or nude, you'd get a lot of use out of them! xx
