In The Limelight: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 015 Tutti Frutti - A Product Review

Tinted lip balms - I absolutely adore these products. When I first read about these Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters, my heart didn't really skip a beat and thought these are a bunch of over hyped products even though a couple of shades caught my eye. I vehemently pretended to have a bad case of amnesia and I tried, believe me, just so I won't have to buy these lip butters because I am in love with Korres Lip Butter. Still, I lost the battle to my impulsive character and ended up going home with one shade which is 015 Tutti Frutti. I've been using it day and night for a week now and it's probably enough time to know the yays and nays of this product.

According to Revlon, these Colorburst Lip Butters are:

- 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

Starting with clean, dry lips apply your favorite shade of Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter onto lips. Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter can be worn with or without Lipliner. Reapply as often as desired for softer, smoother and instantly hydrated lips!

What I like:
  • The packaging is nice. I like the quilted pattern just like the one on their Colorburst Lipsticks but they look playful and reminiscent of candies because the caps are colored according to their shades. The size is just a tad shorter than Chanel Rouge Allure and the tube itself is quite similar to Dior High Shine except for the base of the tube.
  • The shade looks bight orange in the tube but turns to a nice peachy-coral shade with just the right amount of brightness to liven up the face. It does bring out the natural pink on my lips. Weird as it may sound, that's what it does.
  • It glides like butter and applies smoothly on the lips.
  • It keeps my lips moist and soft.
  • For a tinted lip balm, it is pretty pigmented and has an awesome colour pay off.
  • It leaves a nice tint even after the lip butter wears out. 
  • No allergic reactions, no irritation on my lips and on the areas surrounding the lips.
  • There are 20 shades to choose from.
  • Locally available at most department stores nationwide.

What I don't like:
  • Since it is a lip butter, I guess you can expect it to melt like butter. It easily melts especially with the kind of weather that we have here in the country which is pretty humid a lot of times. The lip butter broke from the base the day after I purchased it - this is the most disappointing thing.
  • It sort of dries out my lips. Yes, my lips feel moisturized only when I have it on my lips but once it's gone, so does the moisturizing feel. I still wear a regular lip balm underneath to solve the problem.
  • Staying power isn't fab, of course, because this isn't a lipstick. I have to reapply every 2-3 hours.
  • It has only been a week and I've used about 40% of the product. 
  • Pretty expensive for Php 525/tube (around $12.25) considering that Revlon is a drugstore brand. 

Overall rating: 3.5/5 I'd hate to be the antagonist here but I do think that there really isn't anything special about these lip butters. They provide nice color while making the lips feel soft and moist but hey, I've seen better. 

Will I buy again? Undecided at the moment. I may think that there's nothing special about these but I love the shade. If I were to repurchase, it would just be this shade or perhaps Candy Apple too. But I still love my Korres Lip Butter more. :)

Have you tried these lip butters? How do you find them and what are your favorites?

Have a fabulous weekend, super awesome peeps! :)



  1. How disappointing that it broke agad! And wow, 500+, thats kinda crazy! I was really looking forward to trying this but now I kinda just want to go for CG lipsticks instead.

    1. That is true. I was expecting a bit more from it. Good thing though is that the color is really pretty. :)

      Covergirl Peach Shine is such a pretty shade, if you haven't tried it yet. :)

  2. Hmmm I guess I'll skip this if it doesn't leave your lips moisturized as mine are constantly dry and chapped because of eczema... I thought Strawberry Shortcake looked so pretty though, hmm! Thanks for this Pammy!

    1. If you have really dry lips, it is best that you apply a lip balm underneath the lip butter. It is not the most moisturizing and hydrating tinted lip balm as for me. That shade looks pretty, maybe you should give it a try? :D

  3. Aww... I thought it was really good since I see a lot of people blogging about it. I hate it when lippies melt fast. And it's kind of expensive pala. Oh well... Gonna pass this one then. :P

    1. Yeah, most of the reviews can easily sway and BI people into buying these. I do find them nice, not just my kind of lip butter. It could be my lips. Haha! :)

  4. I haven't pick up this yet but it is on my list and wait when it sales. I do fan of revlon and shade is such amazing..

    1. Agree! Take advantage of the sales you have there. I hope you end up liking these lip butters. :)

  5. Sorry to hear about your experience! It does look good on you, though!

  6. ang mahal naman nyan dyan...i wonder how much it is in here...or kung meron na dito. it looks good on you deary. :)

    1. Yeah, pretty expensive for a drugstore lip product. I do hope it reaches your shores. :)

      Thanks, dear. :)

  7. Some makeup addicts in Blogger and Youtube says this is in between being a moisturizing lipstick and a tinted lip balm...hmmm so I guess it leans towards lipstick? hehe Great review sis! Sayang it broke agad, ang pretty pa naman ng color :)

  8. awwww... sad naman
    i never did like lip butters kasi it has this sticky texture e...such a turnoff for me.

    but you really great with it on ha. i think this is the most pigmented lip buitter that i've seen!

  9. yeh, i'm not the biggest fan of the lip butters either, though it doesn't dry out my lips, it's just not as nice as the colorburst, imho. sayang ganda pa naman ng mga kulay, so vivid. i'll stick to the covergirl lip perfection lippies mas mura pa hahaha

  10. I wanted one but now I'm thinking twice. Maybe I would buy just one to try lang. :P

  11. I love revlon's lip butter but it is messy and it melts.. I love sweet tart the most.. I got 11 of them..
    check out mine too!

  12. looks pretty on you pammycakes! i have cupcake hehe. i'm also gonna review it. :)

    IMY! IMY! IMY!

  13. It looks really nice on you, too bad it dries your lips. I have this coming my way, I hope I will like it.

  14. looks really pretty on you! i like the color.. sayang, blahh it broke agad..
    No wonder why all the testers that I have seen at Duty Free Fiesta Mall were all broken.. haha that's why i never tried and bought any.. haha buti na lang pala.
    Thanks pammy for sharing! IMY

  15. what a pretty coral!

    i like the lip butters but honestly i'm not sure why everybody went so crazy over them! i mean, they're good and all, but i find them a little drying as well. *shrug*
