Buttered Up

Today I have two of the very popular and hyped up Colorburst Lip Butters from Revlon. I have the shades 050 Berry Smoothie and 025 Peach Parfait.


First up, the packaging of these is really nice! It has semi-transparent plastic lid with a quilted pattern as well as the shade of the product inside, which is always helpful! The lid snaps shut very firmly so there's no need to worry about it coming off and smearing all over your bag.


Berry Smoothie is a very pretty everyday, wearable berry shade. On my lips it's not too bold and looks quite 'natural' as it is fairly close to my natural lip colour. It has a slight pink shimmer to it which is not too apparent on the lips.

Peach Parfait is a really flattering peachy-pink with golden shimmer. The shimmer in this one is more obvious on the lips and it is more like larger shimmer chunks/particles. I know a lot of people dislike the shimmer in it, but I quite like it. Because of the sheer nature of these lipsticks, the colour doesn't really show up on my pigmented lips. What I'm left with is a sparkly lip shade, so it is more of an everyday natural pink colour.

The formula of these lippies is very nice and definitely something I could wear on a daily basis, throw in my bag and touch up without a mirror (though it's always good to have one!). They are pretty moisturising but do provide a good amount of colour payoff. I really like sheerer lipsticks, so these are right up my alley! They are super soft and smooth which is their downfall during hot weather. They can get a bit melt-y, visible from my tube of Berry Smoothie. They have a nice glossy finish and are just really easy lip products.

I really love these and am definitely interested in getting more as they really do live up to the hype! They retail for around AUD$21.95 but you can usually pick Revlon up on sale.
