  • Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth

The first time i saw the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop being swatched around on the international blogosphere,  i had one of those *eyes popping out of the head, tongue hitting the floor* moments they show in cartoons . It just looked like such a gorgeous , gorgeous fuschia, candy pink !

However when i did swatch it in reality, i have to admit i was a wee bit dissapointed. Dont get me wrong, its still a gorgeous color but Lollipop has a purplish undertone to its fuschia pink-ness , and that purple doesn’t sit too well against my wheatish skin tone. That being said, this is still a really pretty deep fuschia and if you like to rock bright lips, then Lollipop is the perfect deep  pink for you!

Shade aside, i have to say these Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are rockstars!! I mean, talk about being Jack of all trades- they moisturize like a lip butter, they are quite pigmented like lipsticks , and they glisten like lipglosses !! Iv tried three lip butters so far and Lollipop was by far the most pigmented- two swipes made it to almost opaque!. They also glide really smoothly, just really slip across your mouth, hug your lips and sit very comfortably on top of them, moisturizing them throughout the day. My lips definitely felt smoother and more hydrated after Lollipop. They have just about an okay lasting power- i do need to re-apply after every 3.5- 4 hours but then lipglosses in general dont last too long on me !

I also tried Sweet Tart (Very pretty but a little light), and Berry Smoothie ( a really really pretty rose pink that i am wearing everyday) . Swatches for those coming right up!!!

See how it becomes too purple on my lips? I dont know why!!! It doesnt happen on anyone else. On my sister it looks as pink as the swatch above.



Price: Rs 600 in India

Recommendation: Love the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. These are pigmented, they shine and glisten and they really moisturize your lips!!! Whats not to love- its like having a lipstick, a lipgloss and a lip balm rolled into one ! I loved everything about these, specially how they made my lips feel -Except that they dont last very long, but that doesnt really matter. Lollipop is a nice fuschia pink with purple undertones- i personally dont find it a very flattering color on me because it pulls a bit too purple on my skintone, but i know it can look great on other girls!

This looks so Purple! I thought it would be Hot Pink, will try any other shade from this!

Seems like everyone is reviewing these right now..but you are right,it does look purplish on you.. I really wanted to try this..but Rs.600 seems a little too much for 2.55g of product..But otherwise.. i believe this one in the shade candy apple could have been the one for me..!

i don like purple on my lips..but am dying to check out other shades ! :)

You should try Tutti Frutti, its a really nice coral colour. The best thing about these lip butters are that you can put one coat if you want them to be sheer, but you can also really build up the colour if you want a more pigmented look. Plus they are extremely hydrating.

I bought Berry Smoothie too and love the color. But it dries my lips after an hr or so..same for u?

Hey I had the same problem with peach parfait…it was orange on my lips instead of that pinky peachy shade..I tried the old trick of dabbing my lips verrryyyy lightly with a compact..and then used it again…it worked got the shade I wanted..I guess you all can also try this if ts giving a purple hint instead of pink…but the purple glitter is looking good on you..:)

Oh, drat! That’s bound to happen to me too then..

I like the Revlon lip butter because it covers my pigmented lips . But the way color appears in the tube and on the lips is really different. I bought a brownish neutral one and it turned out to look pink on the lips -.- ….
