My Revlon Lip Butters Collection…

…is nearly complete! I’m still on the hunt for Red Velvet, then I think I’ll be finished. Below are the shades that I own!

I wear this product, at some point in the day, every day. I really do treat it like a chapstick and my lips are in great shape as the temperatures start to dip down into the 30s.

With the exception of Tutti Frutti, the shades I own are very pigmented. They would very well, IMO, on women of color. I might have to swatch my collection because all of the swatches I saw, prior to purchase, were only on fair-skinned women. Not such a great indicator for WOC lol. Luckily, I happened to choose well! Generally, I go for the bolder colors, as a rule of thumb. It worked out for this product as well.

I MUST Talk About Revlon’s New Lip Butters

I’ve been really lazy, in terms of my post frequency, but I had to share my thoughts on a new Revlon lip product, their Colorburst Lip Butters.

Now, you probably saw my 2 month-old post about “discovering” the beauty section at “Bed, Bath, & Beyond”, right? The day I took those, was the day I found the lip butters. According to a few beauty blogs, Revlon released them to BB&B before the traditional drugstores, so that’s what lead me to BB&B.

Once I got them home, I immediately tried them and fell in love. Granted, most of Revlon’s lip products have struck a chord with me, but these were like… perfect? They look like lipsticks in the packaging, and even apply like them. But they wear like chapsticks. No, seriously!

At first I thought I was just overreacting because that’s how the product was initially described. (Back then, it wasn’t on Revlon’s website, and no press release had been sent out) But it really was true! I started telling my friends about it and soon they, too, were on the hunt for these wonderful Lip Butters. Once they finally found them, they completely agreed with my assessment that, not only were they amazing, but that they really did feel like chapstick!

And not only that, but the products claim “94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated”. That’s because the main ingredients are Mango Butter, Shea Butter and Coconut Butter. Now, I know there are many “medicated” lip products out there, but these seem to work really well! I mean, I usually sleep with Blistex Medicated Ointment on, but I still felt a difference from wearing these new Lip Butters for a few days! (I may start sleeping w/ them on, to be quite honest)

I got 3 shades (as you can see above) Fig Jam, Raspberry Pie, and Candy Apple. You can easily see the shade through the top of the container, so it’s not a guessing game as is the case with some lip products. I picked Fig Jam because it was a brown that I thought would be a good neutral for me. And boy was I right! It’s perfect! I’ve literally been wearing it as my “chapstick” the past few days. I reapply a little after eating, but I would have done that for chapstick too. And because it’s my “nude”, I don’t need a mirror or anything. Perfect! Even though this is a permanent line, and not Limited Edition (which I was afraid of) I’m going to be sure to buy a backup or two, of Fig Jam because I have a feeling I’m going to run through those suckas!

The other two shades I got were Candy Apple (a bright, fun strawberry red) and Raspberry Pie (a medium berry/magenta pink). I’ve worn all these colors, and loved them, but Fig Jam has my hard for its versatility.

I will be getting more colors because I’m obsessed. Red Velvet, Lollipop, Sweet Tart, Sugar Plum, Pink Truffle, Cherry Tart, Tutti Frutti (coral), stand out. If you’re wondering, those, combined w/ the 3 I already own, are the most pigmented shades I’ve seen. A shade like Sugar Frosting and/or Creamsicle, will do absolutely nothing for me or probably anyone else without naturally light pink lips lol. No, I don’t need them to necessarily be full-coverage lipsticks, but I’d still like even the lightest shade I purchase to at least show up!

Judging from how many regular ColorBurst lipsticks I currently own (10 total), there’s no doubt I’ll probably break down and buy a bunch of these as well. This is always how it starts. Revlon created a Monster!
