Review: Revlon Lip Butters

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).

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: Crème Brulee

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: Peach Parfait

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: Berry Smoothie

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: Pink Truffle

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: Candy Apple

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: Red Velvet

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!

Collective Haul – Sephora, CVS, Sephora, Target, HauteLook, LUSH

So here is an overdue haul!! The last “haul” I did was back in March, when I did my Arizona haul. I’ve been trying hard to save money and not spend as much, and once the last of my giveaway prizes are bought, I will be putting myself on a spending ban. I’ve got some significant changes happening in the next couple months, and I need to save all the money I can! So here is a collective haul….which means it’s pretty much everything I’ve bought – beauty-wise – in the last 3 months! I do have a small haul I have to film from this past weekend when I was in Indiana for my uncle’s wedding, but then I believe that’s it for hauls for the next few months. So without further adieu, here you go! Let me know if you see anything you’d like me to review!
