Review: Revlon Lip Butters

I've watched a number of videos and swatches about the new Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. From what I've read, people are very excited about them and bought a ton of them. There are 20 colors and incredibly difficult to find. I don't see them at Rite Aid and Target. For the ones I found at the stores, some people just opened and swatched or tried them on. Doesn't that bother you when people just open brand new drugstore products and try them on?? And when they find them not working for them, they just leave them there. They are not testers and are meant for purchase, you know.

Revlon's website have online shopping feature and would take you to for a purchase but they are not in stock when I write this entry. They will eventually be in stock at the stores or online I suppose.

Let me show you what I bought after carefully browsed through them.
I just happened to see them at Walgreens for $7.49 each. Accidentially found them in a small plastic bin and surprisingly they have all the colors I was looking for. This was really a treasure hunt. hahaha From left to right:
  • 050 Berry Smoothie
  • 090 Sweet Tart
  • 025 Peach Parfait
They are called lip butters for a reason and remind me of Giorgio Armani sheer lip stick. This is nowhere close to a regular lip stick. Revlon calls this "sheer to medium color with buttery shine". I don't know how many times some people had applied these lip butters on their lips to get the pigmentation but for me, apply it once only gives a sheer finish. I like this sheer finish though. It's good for some who just want a pop of color on their lips without having to wear a ton of makeup. Another plus is they don't taste or smell.

Here are the swatches after applied it once:
I find them to be moisturizing but am not estastic about it. There are many other more moisturizing lip sticks. All these lip butters contain mango, shea, and coconut butters to give you that hydration if you just wear it alone. If your lips are dry and chapped like mine, you may find them not moisturized enough after 2 hours or so. It shows more fine lines on my lips than my other lip sticks. I would apply a lip balm beforehand to avoid chapped lips and minimize fine lines.

Out of the 3 I got, I like Sweet Tart at first but the more I wear Berry Smoothie, the more I like it because it matches my skin tone pretty well. Would I repurchase? Probably just one or two after I'm done and when there's a sale. Definitely not gonna haul a bunch of them.
