Review: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters + Swatches

Do you remember my Walgreen’s haul from LA?
LA-8
Many of you asked if i would review the revlon lip butters and post my entire collection of them.

I procrastinated about doing this as i know some people will give me flack for my collection [if you are one of them, just stop reading now as i refuse to apologize for buying things i want when i work long hours each day]

With that disclaimer out of the way, here they are
butter-1
Revlon ColorBurst LipButters
Note: When these were released, they were not sold in Japan so super thanks to asiyakei who bought me 2 of them and beautymoogle who gifted me with one for christmas! I bought 4 of them in USA. And the rest? MASSIVE THANKS TO my shoe twin aka MAY407 for getting them for me.
*Currently Japan sells 8 shades [only 8 shades!? and extremely expensive at almost USD$20 each]

butter-2
Official spill from Revlon 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 colour with buttery shine
– Available in 20 luscious shades

If you are wondering, i actually have all 20 of them but two are missing from the pics
butter-3
Will update these pics when i find them [think i left them at work]

Pros
– Low price
– Very pigmented for lipbalm! semi pigmented for lipstick
– Super moisturizing
– Unscented

Cons
– not easily found outside of USA/Canada. As a matter of fact only 8 shades are sold here in Japan.
– not long lasting, wipes off easily
– packaging, i dont know if i have been manhandling them somehow but 2 of my lipsticks no longer spin outwards [its like they got jammed or something]

How about some swatches :D 3 of them are missing from the pic XD [Sugar Plum, Tutti Frutti, Peach Parfait]
butter-6

Overall Thoughts
I guess its pretty obvious that i love these XD Usually my lips get cracked during winter [no matter how much lipbalm i wear] and it seems these have really helped out! As a matter of fact, these have completely changed my views about lipstick. I didnt used to buy/wear a lot of lippies but now i have decided to give them a fair chance!

FYI I dont even know which is my fave as i like almost ALL the shades. Every shade is extremely wearable!
butter-4
I highly reccomend them! Go check them out!!!!

      i dont think i ever considered finishing them to be honest. but if it helps, i actually finished one of them already XD [brown sugar which is why the swatch in the blog post looks strange, i had to scrape it out with a lipbrush]

      fig jam is lovely indeed! very wearable. :D

      i get the weirdest flack. tats why i dont post pics of bags or shoes i buy. once i posted my nail polish collection and some ppl commented on how wasteful i was and how i’ll never finish using them all. btw my nail polish is pathetic esp since i stopped buying over 2 years ago. so i dont know wat their problem was.

      i hear they just made it to Singapore and they just made it to Japan too
      it probably wont be long before it goes to australia.

      i agree! i think ppl who give us crap are people who dont understand how hard one has to work for $$

      i agree with u! they sure are good for drugstore and if u can get them at drugstore prices [heard they were like 3.99 in canada last week and usa gets BOGO 50% off often] i think they are all really worthwhile hahaha

      people are weird to bother leaving me weird comments i think. like if it makes u mad, just close the window and move on hahahaha
      i’m glad u arent one of those of cos! i totally agree with everything u say!!
