Revlon Lip Butters-First Impressions!!



So I finally got my hands on the much raved about Colorburst Lip Butters from Revlon, I got them in two colors, Peach Parfait and Lollipop, lets move ahead to my initial impressions of the infamous product!

Revlon Claim:
- Buttery Balm + Shiny Color
- Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated. 
- 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



Packaging:
Sleek lipstick-like packaging, I love the quilted pattern on the transparent cap which is the exact color of the lipbutter inside, packaging resembles that of Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks.

Review and Swatches:
It's a buttery balm in all honesty so much so that it literally becomes messy like butter in excessive heat or if you're not too careful [see picture below] but the same quality is what makes it so great as a hydrating lip product, plus it's available in 20 gorgeous shades with good pigmentation so what more can you ask for! 
It makes my lips shiny, smooth and gives me a healthy looking pout! There's no scent or smell.
Lollipop is a pretty fuchsia pink color which is nicely pigmented and amazingly enough gives you a pop of color on the very first swipe and instantly brightens up your face. It has a few tiny glitter particles which are hardly noticeable and it leaves a slight stain on my lips after the initial color wears off as is the case with darker colors.
Peach Parfait is a peachy pink sheer color which is perfect for day wear, it's more shimmery and a lovely color appears with 4-5 swipes, I simply adore the glossy finish of this and I love it so much that it's in my August Favorites post as well.
The only downside is the staying power which is hardly 2 hours for Peach Parfait if I use a single swipe or two and 2-3 hours for Lollipop, but again that's understandable for a product as moisturizing as this. 
And maybe another one is the price which I feel is a tad high for these, you need to apply a considerable amount of the product to get your desired color  of the sheer colors in the range plus it's extremely moisturizing too which results in running out of it pretty quick so for that reason I feel it should be less expensive. 


It gets messy easily because it's super creamy and melts in excessive heat

Price and Availability:
I got this from Wishlist for PKR 950, they were offering the best price for these! And I plan to get a couple more. 
Even though Revlon booths have opened up at the Scentsation Shops in Karachi, they haven't stocked the Lip Butters as yet.

  2. These are very pretty! Thats why I went for darker colors bc they tend to last longer on the lips.

I didn't think too much of the peach shade until I scrolled down and saw you wearing it, I am very much impressed, both colours look stunning, this would be a definite buy for me and the fact that it so moisturizing (albeit not long-lasting), thats even better! great review doll!
