As promised (way too long ago…lol) here are the swatches for the lip butters I reviewed in my YouTube video (linked at the bottom of this post).
Just a brief synopsis of what my video covered:
I am a big fan of the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. The packaging is sleek, yet adorable (I LOVE the quilted pattern!). Packaging may not matter to some people, but I’m a sucker for cute packaging! These lip products basically feel like a lip balm with a LOT more color payoff than a typical balm. I’m not crazy about the colors that have shimmer because in my personal opinion, I feel like I can feel the reflects used in the product. BUT I still use them. The colors are lovely, and the staying power is hit or miss. They aren’t meant to be a long-lasting lipstick, however I do find that the darker colors (i.e. Red Velvet) tend to have longer staying power and need less touch up.
These lip butters are made with mango, shea and coconut butter, which are super hydrating ingredients, but when it comes to hydration, I prefer using a regular lip balm.
The only products I can personally compare these to are the MAC Sheen Supreme lipsticks. I don’t find the Revlon Lip Butters as hydrating as the Sheen Supreme, but these are at least 50% less in cost and are a lot more accessible because you can find them almost anywhere. Since I first picked them up, I have found their empty displays (definitely a hot commodity!) at the majority of the major drug stores, and stores like Ulta and even Bed Bath and Beyond (larger locations that have a large selection of personal hygiene/cosmetics).
My overall opinion: I love these things. My 2 favorites (so far) are Pink Truffle and Red Velvet. But I plan on picking up a few other colors, still. So we’ll see if they continue being my favorite. More than likely, they will continue to show up in my monthly favorites videos for quite some time!
