A hybrid between a tinted lip balm and a lipstick, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters have taken the makeup world by storm. I’ve been lusting after them ever since they came out, but they always seem to be out of stock at my local drugstore and I was starting to despair about ever being able to try one when the wonderful Janessa, one of my most loyal readers, sent me a tube. Thanks hun!

I was even more excited when I realised that the shade she sent me, Lollipop, is not available here. Only 10 out of the 20 shades available, in fact, are sold in Italy, which is really unfair. I really hope Lollipop will be released here too in the near future because it is really gorgeous. It is a bright fuchsia shade with cool blue undertones and purple/fuchsia shimmers that are barely noticeable. It also has a slightly glossy finish which adds a luminous touch to your look.

The formula is supposed to combine the color of lipstick with the comfortable feel of a balm and be very moisturizing, but I don’t entirely agree with that. Color payoff is amazing. Lollipop provides almost full coverage in just one swipe. It’s a very loud and bright shade so I like to keep the rest of my makeup soft and natural when I wear it. The texture is also creamy and glides on smoothly.

However, I don’t find it very moisturizing at all. It doesn’t dry my lips, but it also doesn’t feel particularly comfortable on unless I wear lip balm underneath, which really disappointed me. I’d have expected the texture to be a lot more moisturizing considering they are called “Lip Butters”. But apart from that, I really love this lipstick. It’s cheap, it’s pigmented, it doesn’t have any discernible taste and lasts about 4 hours on my lips (if I don’t eat).

That’s very impressive when you consider that most lipsticks fade after only a couple of hours on my lips. And isn’t the packaging really cute? I love the retro quilted look of the cap. The colour of the cap also matches that of the lipstick which is very handy as it means you’ll be able to find it quickly among the other lippies in your stash.

Available at: ulta

Summary
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop is a bright and highly pigmented fuchsia shade with subtle shimmer and a lovely glossy finish. It has a creamy texture that glides smoothly on the lips and stays put for about 4 hours, but it is not very moisturizing.

Rating: 3.5/5

    • Brittany, thank you! I love the colour, it’s so pretty that I don’t really mind having to wear lip balm underneath.

    • Trisha, I agree about the packaging. It’s sleek and beautiful. And the colour is very bright indeed.

    • Xin, it’s very bright indeed. It’s a beautiful shade for a dress too. :)

      I hope you’ll be able to find your lip butter soon. :)

    • Vonvon, I’m glad you managed to get the shade you wanted and at such a convenient price too! It’s outrageous how much cosmetics are priced outside the USA, isn’t it? So unfair!

  1. Aw, you’re so welcome! I’m finished with camp :[ and I’m sad that it’s over but I will be commenting every day :D

    • Mylanqolia, I think the name is very misleading. You expect butters to be hydrating indeed and this just isn’t. You have to think of it as a very pigmented lipstick and use a lip balm underneath to appreciate it.
