drugstore scores part 1: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

It is the general consensus that drugstore cosmetics have really upped their game this year. With all the talk surrounding the release of a few hyped products I had to see for myself what all the buzz was about. I realize that in blogging land these products are old news but I purchased these items earlier this year so these are my reviews on them after a few months of use.

The first product I had to check out were the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. Being a lipstick/lipgloss/lipbalm/lip-anything girl I was anxious to see if these lipstick/lip balm hybrids were up my alley. Revlon promises 'buttery balm plus shiny color.' Sounds good to me! I didn’t want to go overboard and buy all 20 colors in the collection so I picked up the 2 I thought I would use the most – pinks. I grabbed Cupcake and Strawberry Shortcake.

 Cupcake is a light lavender/pink while Strawberry Shortcake is a brighter berry pink.

I am totally impressed with these Lip Butters. Not only are they soft, smooth and non-drying on the lips, they are more pigmented than I was expecting. They have a beautiful shiny finish without looking glossy or sticky. I can see these being really appealing to a gal that doesn’t love the feel of lipstick but would like more color than a gloss provides. These lippies retail for $8 or $9 and can be found at Wal Mart, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Zellers, London Drugs and other drugstores. I would recommend purchasing them at Wal Mart as I learned the hard way they are more expensive other places. As much as I love them I am content with just these 2 for now. When I do purchase another Lip Butter it will be in the shade Peach Parfait as it looks like a nice nude that suits everyone.


  1. I got the lip butter in sweet tart a while ago but had to wait to use it because my shingles were on my lips and mouth area! So ugly :( I am loving how it doesn't feel sticky like a gloss but doesn't dry my lips out either.
    The bun recipe is yours!! It's the one you posted for S.A.M.M. and it's the only one I use now. We love it, so thanks!

  2. Those are beautiful lips! (Oh, I like the colors, too!) I might have to go buy one of them. I think I might try Cupcake as I am partial to something a little lavender or plummy! Love you!!!

  3. i love when you review products like this....that i can afford. haha i'm totally buying this lipstick. thanks!

  4. While i'm picking up some of the tattoo eyeshadow, I think I'll check this lipstick out too. What would I do with out you? I know, I'd live in make-up oblivion all my life.

  5. Okay love the lip butters, but what I really want to know is how do you get your teeth so white? Seriously, now that is beauty secret I could use!


Straight up now tell me...
