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. :)
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.
