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:

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.
