Instant Favorite: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters

Ahhh... I'm lacking in blog posts again! I'm so sorry for the semi hiatus, I moved in to a new apartment this past weekend. I forgot how horrible packing is! Anyway, I've heard a lot of rave about these babies around the blogosphere so I decided to check it out for myself.



I tweeted about a week ago stating that I bought 4 lipsticks in less than 5 minutes... and it was this. From first lip swipe I was in love... no joke. (I know I say I love a lot of my makeup, which I really do...but I really do love these) Which is WHY I bought 4 more, totaling my lipstick collection of these to 8.

Revlon lip butters are described as (from Revlon's website):
- Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
- Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
- Sheer to medium color with buttery shine
- Available in 20 luscious shades
 L-R: Berry Smoothie, Brown Sugar, Candy Apple, Peach Parfait, Lollipop, Sugar Plum, Sweet Tart, Tutti Frutti

I call these my "balmstickgloss',"  because it gives the softness of a lip BALM, the pigmentation of a lipSTICK, and the shininess of a lipGLOSS (you like that huh? haha!). It's a 3 in one and definitely wonderful.

Of course there is a drawback, as it is neither AS moisturizing as a regular lip balm, AS pigmented as a regular lipstick and AS shiny as a lipgloss... so this lip butter pretty much combined little bits of the three. The wear in this doesn't last as long because I have to reapply every 1-2 hours and that's if I didn't eat anything. Eating something will guarantee it to wipe off. Also, most if not all of the lip butters come with some glitter (not as noticeable unless seen very close) and that may throw off some people. Nevertheless, after you put these babies on your lips you'll never go back!

On to the pictures!

These lip butters can be bought in any drugstore, comes in 20 colors and they are permanent. If you can't find some of them right now (as they are very much in demand), don't worry! Just be patient-- or drive around to the next drugstore :p

Until Next Time! :)
