Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in "Strawberry Shortcake"

This is probably one of Mayday's best music videos to date. It's funny, heartwarming, touching and will make you smile even though a ninja is cutting onions right behind you.

(All items reviewed were purchased using my own money, unless stated otherwise.)


Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters have been raved throughout the beauty blogosphere ever since their release, and the reviews are rave indeed. I'm going to do a review on the Revlon Lip Butter I purchased yesterday, which is in the shade Strawberry Shortcake.



Revlon has really amped up its product line lately, as you can see from these lip butters and updated nail polish line (the ones I mentioned in my previous post). I love the packaging for these lip butters because they're so pretty - they resemble frosted glass with a quilted pattern, and the colour matches that of the product inside. What's more, there is a clear 'window' at the top of the tube so you can clearly see the colour of the lip butter.


In the tube, Strawberry Shortcake shows up as a light blue-based pink. It looks pretty daunting if you don't know that it's actually quite sheer and can be layered up for opacity. :)

You can see that it is definitely a cool-toned shade, and the shimmer is quite evident in this swatch.

Yup, the scary-but-necessary lip swatch photo. I absolutely love this colour! I didn't even have to put lip concealer in order to get the soft milky pink shade so often seen in Japanese makeup guides. ♥

Overall, I must say that the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters do live up to the hype. It's like a cross between lipstick and lip balm! :D The packaging is really cute, the colours are sheer but pigmented, last longer than conventional lip balms, and are unscented.  Lately, I've been steering clear of my scented lipsticks and balms because they give me a headache - not a good sign. >_<

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters retails at RM 25.00 (2.55g), available at Watsons and Guardian (not sure about SaSa stores).

✓ Pros: Moisturizing, sheer but pigmented and easily buildable, unscented, pretty packaging, quite long lasting.
✗ Cons: Product might settle into lines if lips are dry/flaky.

Oh gosh! You found them!! I have been trying to find these babies for months all over Watson's/Sasa/Guardian but didn't manage to even get a sight of them in Malaysia, only saw the Revlon Colorburst (black tube).

Mind sharing where you bought this from? :) Thanks!

LauraLeia said...

Sabrina: Yeah, it has less product than the normal lipstick. But then again, that gives us the excuse to buy more shades, right? :P

SyingK: They just arrived in-store earlier this week, i think? I bought this from Watsons KLCC, although another blogger did mention she saw it in Watsons Pavilion. Hope that helps. ^^

Nancy said...

This is sooo pretty =3
I love the shade! I actually haven't tried these yet, surprisingly!

LauraLeia said...

caro: I have quite pigmented lips too, but this one seems alright by itself. :D If you have darker skin tone, maybe you can try a darker or more neutral shade? :)

Diane: Aww... Happy Hearts Day to you too dear! ^^

Nancy: I was totally suckered in by all the hype online, haha! It's not bad though, and the price is really affordable, so I'm not complaining. XD
