PINK? It has never been my choice of lip shade, but lately I have given it a chance. I decide to try out the new Revlon Colourbust Lip Butters because I found it in my local pharmacy on special at 30% off. The lipstick RRP is $21.95 but I scored mine for around AUD$15! What a bargain!
The packaging is so cute and feminine and the lipstick tube cover matches the colour of the lip shade. It reminds me of a padded boudoir or the pattern you find on fishnet stockings. It has a clear window up the top, to keep an eye on how much you have left. Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters come in 20 shades, so you can find you favourite colour or try out a new one!
I heard great reviews already on the Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter and that enticed me to join in and review it for myself. I chose the shade ‘Lollipop’, a bright pink fuchsia. The reason why I don’t wear bright pink on my lips is because I am well….a shy girl. Bright pink screams “look at me!” “I’m a sex kitten” or “I’m a total extrovert!”. My current collection of lippies consist of natural and nude shades…but I have been in the mood for a burst of colour.

Plus bright pink lips are so much more fun to wear during Winter, it helps amp up the darker wardrobe. And it makes you look refreshed, ‘bubbly’ and playful.
I like the fact that the Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters contain natural ingredients such as mango, shea and coconut butters. It really makes the formula so creamy and buttery! When applied to the lips it feels instantly moisturised and it just slides on so smoothly. It leaves a slight shine on the lips, as if you have applied a layer of lip gloss but it doesn’t make you look too OTT on the ‘goo-ish’ factor. The staying power of the shade ‘Lollipop’ is amazing, after 3 hours there is hardly any fading. And even with eating and drinking, the colour seems to stay on the lips. The appearance is more sheer than matte.

On a scale of 1-5, I would have to rate this lipstick a 3.5 out of 5.
I’m very satisfied with the new Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters, so this will be sitting in my handbag for touch ups all Winter.
What lip shade haven’t you tried but wouldn’t mind giving a go?
