Welcome to a new series of posts called My Collection, a chance for you to see all of the products I have from a certain line. I thought this might be helpful for those of you looking to make a new purchase or expand your own collection, and that it would be helpful for me to shop my stash and rediscover old favorites. Let’s kick things off with the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters.
With a formula that’s the perfect mix of lip balm and lipstick, the Revlon Lip Butters go on smooth and sheer, but can be built up for a more bold, vibrant look. They give a hydrated feel to the lips and wear evenly for several hours. I find they have no discernible taste or scent, which is perfect for those of you who aren’t fans of overly fragranced cosmetics. A wide shade range is available, with new and limited edition colors typically added each season. My only complaint about this product (and something I find with most Revlon lippies) is that I need to fully remove the product before reapplying, or else it will look a little cakey on my lips. This could just be my personal experience though, and it isn’t really a big deal overall. With their comfortable feel and ability to be applied sheer or opaque, I think these are a great lip product for beginners or those who prefer a “no makeup” makeup look.
Currently my Lip Butter collection contains Red Velvet (a deep brown-based red), Raspberry Pie (a bold plum with pink undertones), Wild Watermelon (a bright pink with an orange base), and Sugar Plum (a soft purpley-brown mauve). Raspberry Pie is my latest purchase and has quickly become my go-to for an autumnal berry lip. Wild Watermelon is a fun shade that allows you to easily rock a pop of color, and gets bonus points from me because it perfectly matched the pink streaks in my hair last spring! Red Velvet and Sugar Plum are more understated, but beautiful colors to wear when you want to look polished and put together and don’t want to worry about your lip color throughout the day.
As I’m sure you can tell, I’d give the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters two big thumbs up. I’m always on the lookout for what shade I should add to my collection next, so leave me a comment with your favorite lip butter!
