Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

February 29, 2012

So I finally caved in to the hype and bought one of these. I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz on these lip butters for quite some time in random beauty blogs and forums and somehow it intrigues me on how they rave and recommend these Revlon Lip Butters. I have been a huge fan of Revlon lip products [my HG lipstick is from their Matte collection called Mauve it Over] and I think they are one of the drugstore brands that make good lipsticks in the world without the pricey tag.

These lip butters has gel formula that is enriched with mango, shea and coconut butter and claims to boost lip moisture by 156%. [Cool eh?]. Revlon released 21 shades [they added Macaroon in their collection too] in wide variety of colors which are wearable even for day wear. Some shades have a little shimmer but they are subtle when you apply it on your lips. [this is coming from a person who wasn’t too keen with frosted lipsticks 😉]


  • Packaging is similar to their Colorburst lipsticks with the exception of the translucent quilted pattern cap and each cap and label is tinted to match the lip butter.
  • You can easily see the shade itself on top of the lid.
  • They have safety seals along the side which means it’s 100% brand new.
  • The texture is smooth and buttery, not thick nor heavy.
  • They’re not too sheer. You can see the color payoff in one application and you can built it up in case you want a brighter color.
  • Awesome color selection. I was able to pick one of my HG lip colors from this line. YAY!
  • Doesn’t stain your lips, and it takes minimal effort to apply especially the lip butter comes in a slant shape tube.
  • Wear for a surprisingly long time [atleast for me] and they never feel dry or flakes. I only need to reapply this after a big bite.
  • It’s a mix between lipstick and lip gloss. I, for one, not a fan of lip gloss as it leaves a sticky feeling on my lips so this is a major plus for me.


  • I wish this has an SPF [which means it requires me to put a lip balm with SPF for added protection]
  • The price here in the Philippines is P 525.00 or $12. Somehow this irks me considering this only costs around $6-$7 in US. [I heard they have it on sale for $5 in Costco]. Must be the tax. ugh
  • Still needs reapplication like any other lipsticks.
  • Doesn’t have any smell, just a faint vanilla scent on some shades. I was kinda hoping they have scent just like the names of the LB, but if you’re not a fan of scented makeup products, this won’t be a problem.

I only brought two lip butters [and planning to buy more if my budget permits HA!]:

Pink Truffle

This is sort of my HG lip butter right now. Somehow this matches my true lipcolor.


I was kinda hesitant to pick this since it looks like a very intimidating color [blue toned pink] and I thought I won’t be able to pull it off. I was gonna go with Creme Brulee [nude peach color] but since I’ve been sporting nude color over the past, I thought it’s time for me to try this as well. It wasn’t that bad when I applied it though.

Verdict: I must say these babies do live up to the hype. It’s more like a hybrid between lipstick and lip balm. I love that gives your lip a hint of color at the same time giving a good moisturizing effect. Not as good as tinted moisturizer but not as drying as a regular lipstick. So basically it’s a win win. I would totally recommend this for everyone whether you’re a lipstick junkie or not. 😉 You can get Revlon lip butters at any Revlon counters in leading malls nationwide.
