Revlon Colourbust Lip Butter

I, finally, managed to swatch the Revlon Lip Butters in store and I must confess I only returned 1 of the originals I bought a couple of weeks ago - http://fashion-olic.blogspot.it/2012/03/giveaway-reminder-haircut.html
I got pretty sucked into this hype, Im afraid and I wouldn't normally buy 5 lipsticks from the same brand/line in one go (I got 2for£10 and than 3for2... still!)... I blame it on the pre-wedding madness! :P
Anyway, I got to admit I like the product: I like the pigmentation and because of the balmy feeling, it gives me the opportunity to wear lipsticks more.


I returned Tutti Frutti 'cause it really didn't suit my skin - shame as I love a orange lip!
The packaging is still up for judgement: I like the quilted coloured cup but the black base is too thin so it's hard to grab and open it, the first few times at least.
I like the actual metal tube inside - very sleek and chic and definitely a reminder of the Dior Addict Lipstick.

025 Peach Parfait
This is a warm peach which is the most subtle on me; it, also, has a layer of golden shimmer which still adds a dimension to the lips. Very summery!



050 Berry Smoothie
This is the one that surprised me the most; it looked pretty ordinary in the packaging but instead is so flattering on the skin and the most wearable.
It's a berry colour, obviously, with a tiny tiny bit of shimmer (nothing compared to Peach Parfait), perfect to add a hint of colour. At the same time, it can be built up easily to obtain a very intense stained lip.



080 Strawberry Shortcake
This is my least favourite, actually; I wanted a light baby pink, ideally Cotton Candy but I couldn't find it so I got this one. 
It lightens my lips too much and I was looking for something barely there, instead.
Swatched, it is a gorgeous bubblegum pink (pretty cool toned) but it's simply too pigmented to look good on me.



090 Sweet Tart
My favourite! :)
It's a warm bright pink, nearly fuchsia I'd say - and fuchsia is my favourite shade of lipstick; especially,  for a statement lip instead of a red!



096 Macaroon
I read that Macaroon is Uk-esclusive apparently... it's described as a toned down strawberry jam with brown undertones... I think the description put it down, it's much prettier in real life.
It's kinda of a unique, peculiar shade but definitely mostly wearable by many and in many occasions.
Looking forward to experiment with this one.



***
They last about a couple of hours on me - colour-wise, the shine disappears well before that - but because they are so low maintenance, I don't mind to re-apply on the go. 
What struck me the most and I love is the glossiness which enhance my thin lips... but without being sticky as a gloss.

All together, heavily swatched - l-r: peach parfait, berry smoothie, strawberry shortcake, sweet tart, macaroon
So, what do you reckon... would you try any of these? :)

  1. I have the same issue with thin lips - I call it my 'snake mouth' and sometimes it's super difficult to wear colour without feeling self-conscious about it! I love the colours you chose though, I have a few of the same! :)

    1. you have lovely lips, sweetie! :) but I understand.... these type of product makes me feel less conscious with bright colours and I wear neutral less and less. :) xx

  2. Thanks for the swatches. I've Peach Parfait only and really want to try more, but they are so expensive here. I wish I was still in the UK. Where did you get the 3 for 2 deal? Was it Boots? I might get a friend to buy some for me

    1. I know, I also feel I got too many for the hype... but they are affordable and I don't mind too much... I will use them anyway! :)

  9. I realllly want these and am waiting for an offer again! I'm liking the look of Cotton Candy and Lollipop - one bright and one not so! I usually shy away from brights as i find they highlight dryness but hopefully the balmy texture will solve this. x
