Review & Swatches: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butters made a big splash in the US beauty community when they were launched last year, with their sheer, juicy colour and soft, balm like texture.  Luckily for us, they've now made their way over the pond to the UK, albeit losing six shades along the way - there are twenty in the US, and only fourteen here.

Here we have five of the fourteen shades.  From left to right; Peach Parfait, Creme Brulee, Candy Apple, Lollipop, and Sugar Frosting.  I love the dessert inspired names.  The packaging is a little plastic-y and cheap, but it's certainly cheerful - each butter has a coloured top to match the shade within, with the signature Revlon quilting embossed on it.  The top of each stick is also clear, allowing you to see the shade you're buying before you commit to it.

Texture wise, these are exactly what you expect when you hear the word "butter".  They're super soft, gliding onto the lips from the tube and leaving a buttery sheen on the lip.  They wear more like a lip balm than a colour product, remaining comfortable and moist between reapplications.

Overall, I'm really impressed with these soft, comfortable lip tints.  They're very affordable, too, at a mere £7.99 each, making them a comparable high street alternative to Clinique's ever popular Chubby Sticks.  If you'd like to check them out for yourself, you'll find them at Revlon stands nationwide - and online at Boots.
