Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are a hybrid between a lipstick and a lip balm, and are available in 20 luscious shades. I have already reviewed Lollipop, a bright fuchsia shade, last year, and now I’ll show you Raspberry Pie, which was given me by my friend Janessa.

Raspberry Pie is a bright and glossy fuchsia-berry shade with incredible colour payoff that’s opaque in just one coat. The intense shade really packs a punch, which may be disappointing if you are looking for the “sheer to medium colour” promised by Revlon. To fan of bright shades like me, instead, this is a bonus. Just make sure you apply it with a lip brush for a more precise application. A lip brush will also help to sheer out the colour if you want to tone it down a bit.

The creamy texture glides smoothly on the lips, but doesn’t feel moisturizing at all to me, which is why I prefer to wear it above a layer of lip balm. Raspberry Pie lasts about 3 hours and a half on my lips, less if I eat or drink, in which case it fades unevenly. This unevenness, due to the brightness of the shade, is very obvious, so you may want to carry Raspberry Pie around with you for touch-ups.

Available at: amazon, boots and ulta

Summary
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie is a bright, glossy and intense fuchsia-berry shade that’s opaque in just one coat. Although not particularly moisturizing, its creamy texture glides smoothly on the lips and stays put for 3 hours and a half but fades sooner, and unevenly, if you eat.

Rating: 3.5/5

    Thanks for such an honest review. Some people don’t know how to rate products on a scale and just recommend every product.
    What I’ve noticed about great quality makeup (usually) is that the product fades nicely and it’s not just how pigmented it is or how nicely it initially applies or that it needs a good primer and aid to make it work.

    I have several lip butters and I don’t reach for them very much.

      Janessa, you’re welcome. I think it’s really hard to review a product as there are so many things to consider. You’re right that for something to be good, it’s not just a matter of how pigmented it is or if it needs to be primed. But even then, we all have things that are a must for us and others that we are ready to sacrifice.

      Take this lip butter for instance. I gave it a 3.5 because, objectively speaking, it is not as moisturizing as it claims to be and considering this is a lip butter, not a stain or gloss for instance, that’s very important. Personally speaking, though, I adore very pigmented products so much that I’m not too bothered if they aren’t very moisturizing or fade unevenly. I’ll just use lip balm and reapply. But when you review something you have to be objective. Other people may have different tastes/needs and by reviewing something taking only yours into consideration, you risk to make people waste their money on something that you love, but they’ll hate. :)
