I’m having the most amazing lipcolor experience right now, and it’s not from where I would normally expect. Someone FINALLY got the lipcolor-to-lip butter ratio right, and it’s REVLON! I went on a massive manhunt for these babies—they’re called ColorBurst Lip Butters, and they are so worthy of the praise they’re receiving in the blogosphere right now. I never had a chance to see the original display for these, but when I finally found them (at my CVS), they were stored in a small glass bowl in a fixture with holiday sets. In a way, I’m kind of glad they were so inconspicuous…I had my choice of pinks and berries (which doesn’t happen to me often). In another way, I hope the resources for these are plentiful in your area, you’ll definitely end up buying more than one! There are 20 shades available, but I’ve only seen 10 of them—they all were gorgeous.
Lollipop, Berry Smoothie, Sweet Tart, Cherry Tart
Aside from looking pretty, these are functional. They make my lips feel like little buttery cushions, and the pigment is loaded without any drying of my lips. ColorBurst Lip Butter contains soothing ingredients for your lips like coconut, mango, and jojoba oils—along with beeswax and shea butter. This isn’t just another tube of colored wax, YAY! They’re super shiny, super hydrating, and worth the $7.79 price tag. (Currently they’re buy one, get one 50% off at CVS.)
Part lip balm, part lipstick, part gloss, FOR THE WIN! For additional details and more info, check out Nouveau Cheap. Gianna tried several shades that I didn’t, and you might find some there that you like more!
