You Need This: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

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!

Price & Availability: About $8, CVS and mass retailers

    They look so pretty…

    These feel fabulous but the 2 I tried, Lollipop and Raspberry Pie, were just incredibly bright. Now, I am not one of those pale, nude lip people. I need color or I look dead. However, I wasn’t expecting something called a ‘lip butter’ to be quite so vivid. I think I will try a red or a plum next- the pinks were just too ‘hot’ for me.

    I bought Sugar Plum (085) at a local Rite Aid for $7.50. I love it too :) Thanks for the CVS mention. I didn’t know about the sale yet.

  • Amber

    No problem Valerie, hope it helps!

  • Amber

    Great feedback, Sharon! Lollipop is indeed very bright!

  • Courtney

    Dobt you know that I stopped off at my local CVS and picked up a couple for myself?!?! Can’t wait to try them out for myself! Thanks for the review!

  • Amber

    Awesome Courtney! Please let us all know how it goes :)

    Hey there! I just updated my blog and mentioned your blog too. But so far, I love these lipsticks. Very smooth and they wear very well. THANK YOU for introducing me to these wonderful shades!!!

  • Renee

    I love these babies!! I’ve searched a few CVS and have the manager of mine ordering me Raspberry Pie – beautiful color! Hard to find – I love how they are vivid rather than nude — and so glossy – no bad taste…they have become my favorites and I even gave my 10 year old a Cotton Candy – since it was so glossy and buttery without a lot of shade! Rock on lipstick mamas!

    Seriously, I’ve been trying to get my paws on these since you reviewed them, but I can’t find them anywhere! I’m dying! I live in Montreal, not a tiny village, why don’t we have these yet?!
