Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Review

Hello, everyone! I recently went to the drugstore looking for some new lip products and picked up a famous Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter. They've been around for ages and I've heard some really great things about them, but I've held off purchasing one for some reason! Today, I finally gave in.

I'm a massive fan of this packaging, not only because it's adorable! I love products with packaging that can't be easily scratched or scraped. I'm kind of a clumsy person, yet I can't stand it when anything of mine is in less than perfect condition. This case is virtually scratchproof and reminds me slightly of a pillow!

I bought the lip butter in shade 010, Raspberry Pie.

Very sleek and fancy-looking!

I actually bought this thinking it was a light, sheer, summery lip balm; that's why I got such a vibrant colour! Turns out, it's more of a lipstick than a lip balm. It's not sheer whatsoever! The swatch doesn't give it much justice, but the shade of this lip butter is a blue-toned, bright amaranth colour.

The formulation is fantastic and the staying power is magnificent! Literally, I went to bed with it on and I woke up the next morning with it completely in tact. The only problem I have with this product is that it's not too moisturizing. I would recommend putting a tiny bit of lip balm on before applying this. The finish is very satin-like and lovely!

Overall, I am very impressed with this product and will definitely be repurchasing; maybe in a lighter shade next time! You could find these at almost every store that sells makeup. They're easily accessible and quite affordable! I believe I got this one $7.49 (£4.38) at my local drugstore.

That's all I have for today! I hope this has helped make your final decision on whether or not you wanted to purchase this product! Not all 20 shades are as vivid and bold as this one. I'm sure you'll find one you like!

Happy Shopping!
