Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters Review, Photos and Swatches!

Revlon Lip Butters

I'm so excited to finally review these lip butters for you all. After seeing them featured on just about every blog known to man, I figured you all would be bored of seeing them, and neglected purchasing any. But, after finally trying them, I'm totally head-first on the lip butter bandwagon. I want more - heck, I want them all.

Revlon Lip Butters are a hybrid of a creamy lip balm and a lipstick. They are super "buttery" smooth, pigmented, hydrating and pack lots of shine. Whats more to want? And you wonder why they have everyone going nuts. Plus, the packaging is pretty cute and they're affordable at around $6.

These Lip Butters are available in twenty (20) shades: Pink Truffle, Sugar Frosting, Raspberry Pie, Tutti Frutti, Brown Sugar, Peach Parfait, Candy Apple, Red Velvet, Cotton Candy, Berry Smoothie, Cupcake, Gumdrop, Creamsicle, Cherry Tart, Lollipop, Strawberry Shortcake, Sugar Plum, Sweet Tart, Creme Brulee and Fig Jam.

I own three - Strawberry Shortcake, a natural pink, Sweet Tart, a vibrant, watermelon pink and Red Velvet, a deep, vampy red.

I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks. They contain mango, coconut and shea butter (any product that contains shea butter rocks in my book) so they're slippery smooth, don't tug at the lips during application, and feel great on the lips.

I for one, have very dry lips, so I always have to apply a layer of lip balm before I apply my lipstick or my lips will be dried up and peely (not a good look). These actually keep my lips hydrated, which is very rare to find in any lipstick that has a good amount of pigment.


I also think the packaging is pretty nice. With drugstore products, you really don't get the luxury of aesthetically pleasing packaging, but with Revlon's sleek, quilted design featured on all of their Colorburst line, these lipsticks aren't an eyesore in your makeup bag.

Overall, I'm very happy with these and I'd definitely purchase additional shades from the line. 

Have you tried these yet? Which are your favorites?

Price: Around $6 each, at your local drugstore.

  1. I bought 'em all up after I tried one! I love gumdrop (it's like lilac pastelle gloss, if you've owned that), creme brulee (a perfect beigey-nude), and cherry tart (a popsicle-like, slightly sheer, brighter red than red velvet)

  3. I feel like the odd one out... i've read so many rave reviews but still I just can't bring myself to spend my money on one... Revlon and I just don't get along :)

  4. You should try Tutti Frutti, it's an amazing orange that's perfect for Spring/Summer, but not over the top. So sad we don't have Red Velvet in the UK. xx

  5. Gorgeous picks! I love the Revlon Lip Butters. Just wish they were less expensive in Canada (they rarely EVER go on sale and currently retail for roughly $11/each).

  22. Its fun seeing which lip butters are the favorites! lol. I bought a couple, strawberry shortcake which is super fun color and pink truffle. I love wearing that one to work or when I want to look a little more natural. The formulas are lovely, excellent everyday lipsticks :)

  25. I've tried these (Tutti Frutti and Candy Apple) but they were terribly unpigmented and short-wearing on me. I gave them away and will just admire them for afar from now on.

  26. I just got Creamsicle without first reading reviews. Bad idea. It's really milky (and not in a good way) and emphasizes all dry spots. Looks kinda gross. :(

  27. At first I didn't like the Lip Butters and I think it was because I had expectations of them being like a lipstick. But I gave them another shot because a lot of customers at my work (Ulta) buy them. This time, I got Pink Truffle and Fig Jam. Pink Truffle is definitely my favorite and "go-to" color because it goes great with everything! And it's also a perfect work color too :) I've definitely changed my opinion about them and plan on getting more.
