Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter 001 Pink Truffle Review and Swatches

by - 1:10 PM

I finally got to try the most talked about Revlon Lip Butters. The only one I tried out so far is in 001 Pink Truffle. This is how the package looks. I really like the transparent quilted packaging. Also the color of the case matches the shade color. It comes sealed with the bar code sticker that opens as a leaflet to show us the list of ingredients. I love when packaging comes this way, I feel it is so thought out. Overall, a very chic packaging.


The bottom clearly shows the shade color, number and name. The top is clear and we can actually see what the shade looks like.

This is how it looks when opened. That is the entire amount of product you get, which I feel is less compared to the regular amount of lipstick we usually get.

This is the shade up close.

If you can notice, you'll see that the lipstick has a tendency to smush, when I twist it up entirely and then roll it back down, a little bit of it gets on to the sides.
The ingredients are clearly shown in the sticky leaflet that comes as the seal. A small arrow helps us locate where to pull it up.

This shade is a perfect MLBB (my lips but better) shade on my lips. It is a dusky rose shade and looks like a browny pink. There's not a lot of pigmentation for this shade but it provides good enough coverage when applied generously. But for being a lip butter, it does provide a good pigmentation compared to tinted chapsticks or lip balms. It also has a very light shimmer that comes off as a nice shine on the lips but you cannot really see any glitter. A lot of bloggers/vloggers complained about the chunky glitter these lip butters have, but I couldn't find any in this shade.

The claims: from revlon.com

- Sheer to medium colour with buttery shine
- Available in 20 luscious shades
 

They don't claim it to be long lasting which it is not and that is to be expected from lip balms/butters and this shade stayed on 3 hours tops without eating or drinking in between. After that you'll have to touch up which I don't mind as it is fairly easy to do so and does not really require a mirror like for lipsticks. It also tints the lips with the original color when the creaminess fades, kind of like moisturizing lipsticks. My lips felt really smooth, soft, shiny, and a little bit sticky. I think these lip butters can be considered as a pigmented lipgloss+chapstick combined. Lips looked nicely moisturized while sporting a nice shiny color. Also, since these are not lipsticks, the pigmentation is sheer and can be worn by anybody without the fear of feeling that the color might be bright/too much. For once I can say that I found a lipstick which has all the features that I ever wanted in one and which I can wear all year long. I can say that they are very wearable and can be used everyday, even to work, without fear. They're actually best for winters but I have dry lips all year round so I think they can be worn in all seasons, during day or night.

I really liked how Revlon came up with sweet names for these. A lipstick that feels so good deserves a sweet name :). These lip butters do not have any noticeable scent or taste which is a plus. It filled up all the cracks and lines very well without setting into them much and giving a smooth and shiny finish. The lipstick feels light on lips unlike other moisturizing lipsticks or lip balms. It doesn't feather, bleed or doesn't apply cakey no matter how many swipes you do, in fact, the more swipes you do, the better it feels. You also don't need a lip liner for it.

One problem though, is that, they do feel a little sticky, kind of like sticky lip glosses. I don't know if anybody else has experienced it but I never heard anybody else complain about it. But I don't really have a problem with lip glosses so that was okay. Another issue is that they smush and melt during summers or when exposed to heaters, or direct sunlight for long time.

They are reasonably priced at $7.49 at CVS for the amount of 0.09 oz (2.55 gm). I got them in a BOGO 50% off sale. The other shade I got, I'll do it in another post. I recommend these to everyone, even to teenagers who just started wearing makeup, they are that easy to wear, and maintain. I just wish Revlon would come up with more colors. I'm definitely going to repurchase this shade and other shades as well.

I hope this review helps you to decide whether to buy or not.

Overall Rating: A

Keep Smiling :)

    1. Its a lovely shade and a very neutral kind of shade, its gr8 on cool and neutral toned people but I'm guessing it'll look gr8 on warm toned skins too. But what's best is that its sheer and yet pigmented. Thanks :)
