Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters.

Finally, after what seems like forever although I'm sure it's probably only been a couple of months, the Revlon Lip Butters have made it to the UK. Initially I wasn't super interested in them, or so I thought, but as soon as I saw them up on the Boots website I found myself quickly googling swatches and adding them to my basket! I decided on four shades because they were on a 2 for £10 offer. That offer has ended now but they are on 3 for 2 so if you're interested, I'd snap some up quickly!

Cupcake, Sweet Tart, Lollipop & Raspberry Pie.
I had no idea which shades to go for because I usually love going in to Boots and having a good ol' swatch. My local Boots is terrible and always gets things super late and I just couldn't wait so I decided not to go for the ones I typically would be drawn to, i.e. all pale pink shades and instead pick a good mix of colours. I'm so glad I did this because so far, bearing in mind I have only had these for a few hours, I really like them all. The formula is very consistent throughout all of these shades, they're creamy to apply and don't highlight any dryness on my lips which I'm super happy about. The pigmentation varies between the shades, but I think we all expected that anyway, lighter colours seem to be less pigmented but that's okay! They have a very nice light vanilla scent to them which isn't overpowering at all and I like that. I don't think I would have liked them as much if they had really strong dessert scents.

The first shade I chose is called Cupcake which is a very typical 'me' kind of shade, it's one of those pale pinks that you don't have to think about when you're putting it on & pretty much goes with anything. I don't adore this one but I do like it, it's quite sheer but it still does have quite a good colour pay off and will definitely wash me out if I don't pair it with the right cheek colour and lots of lashes but I know that I will get a lot of use out of it because it's just so easy! It is a very blue based pink but my complexion seems to warm it up a little which I really like. This is definitely a very pretty shade and it's not as sheer as I was expecting.

The second shade I chose is called Sweet Tart and I'm so glad that I got this one because I think it's one of my favourites. Sweet Tart is a fairly bright mid-toned pink that doesn't look overly cool toned on my complexion. I already know that this is going to get a lot of love from me this spring because it's a shade that instantly brightens up the complexion without being too statement. The pigmentation of this shade is really nice, it's not too full on but it's just right. I love it.

The third shade is one that I knew I wanted as soon as I started seeing blog posts and YouTube videos about the range and it's called Lollipop. This shade is amazing and I think it's definitely my favourite from the four that I got. It's a super bright almost violet fuchsia pink with beautiful blue sparkles. The sparkles aren't super obvious on the lips and the formula still feels smooth & not gritty in any way. I have a feeling this is going to be one of my go to summer lip colours. I adore it!

The last shade I chose is one that I saw on Estée from Essie Button and I had to have it because it looks so beautiful on her and it's called Raspberry Pie. I would put this shade in a similar category to my beloved Cherries in the Snow lipstick because it's a reddish rosey toned bright pink. I love shades like this and again, will be perfect for the summer time with a touch of blush & lots of mascara!

So far I haven't been disappointed in these, I'll have to get back to you with how they wear, but I'm very happy that I picked up these colours. I'm sure at some point I'll pop into Boots and have a look at the rest of the shades but I think that I chose quite a good mix of the colours in the range so I'm not sure if I'll purchase any more. Although having said that, I think the shade Candy Apple may be calling my name, and perhaps one of the peachier shades. Oh dear. I think we all know I'll be purchasing at least a couple more. At least they're not breaking the bank though, priced at quite a reasonable £7.99 each.

Have you tried any of the Revlon Lip Butters yet? Which are your favourite shades?

  19. I was very lucky way back in December when I managed to win Raspberry Pie along with other beautiful goodies in a giveaway. When it arrived in the first week of January I instantly fell inlove with Raspberry Pie. The fact that I was one of the few girls in Ireland and UK to own a Revlon Lip Butter added to my excitement. :) But I'm glad other girls can now try the lipbutters.

    They all look amazing on you Jennie and about every other girl I see. These lipbutters are simply to die for. Like you I already have my eye on Candy Apple but I'm also liking the look of Tutti Frutti.Our poor purse.What did they ever do to us to deserve a severe damage/beating? haha :)

  24. I love Candy Apple! It is the easiest red shade to wear because it wears off evenly instead of having that awkward line of demarcation from talking/eating/breathing that reds can tend to get.

    I kind of want Cupcake now! I usually don't go for that light of a shade (I'm ghastly pale and can look a tad washed out) but it seems like it might work for me and it is crazy gorgeous!

  25. Really? I think 055 is actually perfect! It'd probably suit my skin very well since I'm as pale as a ghost xD
    Too bad the offer has ended, I'd have bought that one... ;(

    1. It's very cool toned and I'm very warm toned. It can easily wash me out if not paired with the right make up.
