Monstrously picture heavy post! If you aren’t quite brave enough for a full on bold red lip but are curious because they look so great on everyone else (like I was) these Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are a fantastic place to start due to the sheerer, moisturizing formulas. Consider them as training wheels for red lips! I didn’t get all of these at the same time so they are in varying states of use, but all are worth taking a look at. There are 4 Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters that are on the red side that I have selected for review today. Although some may look similar in their tubes, you will see the end result is quite different when swatched.
From left to right: Candy Apple, Cherry Tart, Wild Watermelon, Red Velvet
From top to bottom: Candy Apple, Cherry Tart, Wild Watermelon, Red Velvet
Starting with the “warmest” of the four is Candy Apple 035. Candy Apple is a glitter free ever so slightly orange leaning red which applies sheerly and smoothly but can build up to a very luminescent brighter red. This is the closest to a true red that I can find in Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters and is the most wearable true red shade that I own. Very flattering and still forgiving due to the sheerness.
Next we have the much more cool toned Cherry Tart 070. Cherry Tart is definitely more of a berry red, and more pigmented than it’s counterparts. Clearly blue in undertone and full of shimmery silver and red micro glitter, it has a nice depth and intensity while still being sheer. It will build to an almost fuchsia deeper berry tone. I don’t think many of these Lip Butters have glitter, the only other one that comes to mind is Peach Parfait (also pretty). I think this might be my favourite!
I think Wild Watermelon 063 is a more recent addition to the Lip Butter lineup. It is a sparkle free brightened warm pinkish red. I think they tweaked the formula with this one. It feels slightly drier (but by no means drying) and applies more smoothly and evenly than the others. This one is the most fun, perky and easy going of these 4.
And finally Red Velvet 040. I lied, I think this one might be my favourite! This was my first red Lip Butter purchase which sold me on the rest. Red Velvet is a somewhat plummy deeper, darker red, a bit mysterious, vampy and broody. No glitter. It reminds me of stains from black cherry juice. It looks great with pale skin and blue eyes but I’d imagine it would look just as nice on someone darker as well. Gorgeous shade.
And all 4 together for an at a glance comparison!
Overall these are worth a try if you still haven’t! Each Lip Butter has a weartime somewhat better than your standard lip gloss, but not quite the wear or intensity of a lipstick. All are pretty moisturizing. I need something on my lips at all times and never feel too dry with these. They retail for around $8-9 Canadian but I grab them when on for $3.99 or a BOGO sale.
Love them! Have a favourite Revlon Lip Butter?
Have a great weekend!
