REVIEW: Revlon Colorburst™ Lip Butter
I’ve been using the Revlon Lip Butters for a while and realized I hadn’t done a review yet.
I know that most of you have probably heard of these and tried them out for yourself, but if you haven’t this is definitely a product worth checking out.
I think as we head into fall/winter, this product is great to have because it keeps your lips so moisturized. We all know how the later half of the year, especially the winter months, can leave our lips not very kissable.
With all that being said, let’s get into the review.
Here’s what I purchased:
Revlon Colorburst™ Lip Butter in “Fig Jam”
Formula: Tinted Lip Balm
Here’s what Revlon’s website has to say about this product:
- “Buttery Balm + Shiny Color
- Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated.
- Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
- Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
- Sheer to medium colour with buttery shine
- Available in 20 luscious shades”
Does this really lead to softer, healthier lips?
I can only speak for me, but I will say, after using the lip butters, my lips do feel very hydrated. It’s like any lip balm in my opinion. It leads to instant relief, but doesn’t really make lasting improvement.
The formula and finish.
So, I like the formula of the lip butters The mango, shea, and coconut butters really hydrate the lips. The formula is really thick in my opinion. If you’ve ever handled shea or coconut butter, you’ll know why. In their solid state, they are very thick and a little hard to handle, but they’ve been manipulated a bit so they blend easier than they would in their natural state.
The finish is nice. All of the ones I’ve tried give a glossy/shiny finish. Not quite on the level of a gloss but somewhere in between a balm and a gloss. I guess think like a luminous finish lipstick with just less color.
Coverage is light, but noticeable.
Revlon says sheer to medium coverage, I say it’s sheer to light. I think medium could possible be achieved if you really pile on the product, but you have to keep in mind that the formula is a bit thick since it has shea and coconut butter in it, so it can get gloopy if you use too much.
Another thing to note, if your lips are really pigmented, like mine, you really won’t notice a ton of color because the coverage is so light. But keep in mind, this is essentially a tinted lip balm…not a gloss or lipstick.
I really do love this product. I think it’s a great lip option to carry into the fall/winter months. I does provide hydration, but I wouldn’t expect permanent results. The coverage is very light, but will give you some color if your lips aren’t very pigmented.
I’ll definitely be using these as long as Revlon keeps making them.
- Nice shade range
- Hydrates lips
- Benefits of a balm, but shine somewhat like a gloss
- Doesn’t last on the lips very long at all
- Formula is very thick, and if you apply to much it can get gloopy very quickly.
