Revlon colorburst lip butters, round two


          I'm back with more Revlon colorburst lip butters! The first time around I went for four light butters. This time I've rounded out my collection with a few more festive colors. Since I've already written a post on lip butters (see here), I will try to address other ideas in this entry and take the opportunity to revel in the beautiful candy colored packaging.


         I love the colorful packaging. It's pretty and useful when you want to grab the right color and go. You can also see below that the top of the tube is clear so you can see what's color is inside! The lip butter colors I got this time around were Peach Parfait, Cotton Candy, Sweet Tart, Raspberry Pie, Berry Smoothie, Lollipop, and Candy Apple.



          The lip butters fit my 'beauty bill' for a few reasons. First, I don't have a very comprehensive lip color collection, and I can experiment with bright pink, raspberry, and fuschia lip butters. Second, the sheerness makes the brighter colors easier to wear. The comfortable balmy feeling makes them perfect to wear at home too, when I don't have any other makeup on. Third, I can toss the lip butters into my bag without having to fret about possible damage, loss, or going bad due to warm conditions. This will be good when I go on vacation.

          Here are my swatches of Revlon colorburst lip butters in Peach Parfait, Cotton Candy, Sweet Tart, Raspberry Pie, Berry Smoothie, Lollipop, and Candy Apple. Peach Parfait is a sheer peach with some glitter. Cotton candy is a sheer light pink. I think it's cool, but not as cool as Cupcake. Sweet Tart is a very pretty bright pink. Raspberry Pie is a pigmented raspberry pink. Berry smoothie is a mauve pink. Lollipop is a pigmented fuschia pink. Candy apple is a red that leans a little orange on me.


           Now my collection numbers eleven lip butters total. Admittedly it's a bit overboard, but I'm happy since I've been using them quite often. My favorites of the most recent bunch have been Peach Parfait, Cotton Candy, and Sweet Tart. Generally I stay shy of red, brown, and orange tones and I've collected most of the pinks, so I think I'm good for now!

          Thanks for reading! I hope you are enjoying a good weekend! Do you have a favorite lip butter color? Are there products that you've gone nuts over? As an aside, I'm hooked on Burn Notice. I just finished Season 1 on Netflix!

Love, Dovey.

  5. Your photos are so pretty! Love it, Dovey.

    I picked up a Dovey color (Creamsicle) but I think if I ever pick up another one, I'll get a bright one.

  9. I 100% agree! I have a number of shades and find them all worthy. Although they won't cure dry lips (I didn't expect them too, but I think some people did)they have a nice glossy texture and the colors are gorgeous. Peach Parfait, Sweet Tart and Lollipop are 3 of my favorites. Lovely review, as always!

  10. Well done, Dovey. Love the pics, too.

    My favorites are Berry Smoothie and Cherry Tart. I also love the colors Raspberry Pie and Lollipop but I find them a bit too vivid and not as sheer as the other two, so I dab them on my bottom lip only and then spread the color around with a fingertip. I'm going to give Peach Parfait to my mother. I could tell it would be too warm, so I'll give it to her unused, and she'll probably love it.
