Triple S: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop Review + Swatch

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! I still have a pretty big uni workload but I promise I am also working on the posts that I've been promissing you guys! I thought it'd be a good idea to post up a review of my Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Lollipop in the mean time.

I know there is an abundance of Lip Butter reviews on the internet but I thought that giving my two cents worth is never harmful.

Claims: Softening, smoothing and hydrating lip product that boosts moisture levels
Retail: AUD$21.95
Packaging: 4 out of 5
Review: I think that if a lipstick and a lip balm were to get together, the lip butter would be their baby. The Revlon's lip butter is as pigmented as a lipstick but as moisturising as a lip balm. What more can you ask for?! Okay, maybe there is one thing we can ask for: a slightly cheaper price. But hey, I'm not complaining, I bought this at a sale. So I'm just going to wait for another sale before I get my hands on more of these babies (no pun intended)!

If you can recall from my rave of this product in my Emily Blunt Makeup Tutorial post, you'd remember how much I love the colour! Let's not forget that colour and description is very relative but anyway, in my eyes, Lollipop is the perfect pinky fuchsia colour! I think that this product has lived up to its hype. For a person who doesn't wear makeup everyday, I find myself slicking some of this stuff on whenever I am at uni. It makes me feel instantly prettier. It never dries my lips up like most lipsticks do, so that is definitely a big plus for me.

The only reason I gave the pakaging a 4 out of 5 is because it's relatively easy to clip the lip butter with the rim of the cap (when one does not take care when capping it). I was a bit annoyed when I did it the other day but I guess it's mainly my fault for not being careful. That aside, overall, I think this product is pretty perfect.
Here is the swatch. 

With sunlight
As you can see the product is somewhat reflective because of the shimmer it contains and of its balmy nature. However, fear not! I think that the amount of glitter flecks they put in this product is enough to give you a beautiful glossy-looking lip but not so much such that you look like a sparkling vampire!

In the shade

I know it looks sheer on my hand but it looks quite opaque on my lips. The colour is "buildable" so you can choose to give yourself a soft stained look or a fully made up pout.

Do you like Revlon's ColorBurst Lip Butters? Which colour(s) do you own? Do share!


  1. very nice color! it suits you well~
    This product is really popular these days unfortunately I still don't have one :(

  2. I got this same colour after so many recommendations and I absolutely hate it hahaha. The glitter in them puts me off so much, it feels so gross to me. I'll go back to my Korres Lip Butters :)

  3. the colour looks great on you :)

  4. I love Revlon Lip Butters!
    My faves cotton candy :)

    1. I really like the look of Cotton Candy but I think they will look weird on me because it is pale and my lips are very pigmented.

  5. looks so pretty on you! :)
    thanks for the review! i need to get one on sale too!

  6. This lip butter looks so pretty on you! I had wanted to purchase it but it doesn't suit me half as well, unfortunately!

    1. Thank you! :) Have you tried/got other colours? I really like how big their range is.

  7. I never got around to buying this one! I have cotton candy and peach parfait. This colour suits you so well. Unsure if I could pull it off!
    P.S I've tagged you for a Liebster award on my blog!

  8. I have 4 shades on this product and adore them all.!
