First of all, it’s really important to understand where this stands, as a product. It’s not a lipstick, that’s for sure. I think it can be best described as a buttery soft tinted lip balm. Some colors are very sheer while others are a bit more pigmented.
I like the packaging, it’s thick translucent plastic with a quilted pattern wherein the lid is an indication of the color inside. I quite like how it looks, I think that’s part of the reason I went back & bought a third one at all… a whole collection of these would look absolutely lovely.
Oh & you want to hear the best part? I bought these in early March, when it was just getting a little warmer here in Mumbai. For the first two days they looked really nice, but after that when I went to use them I found the lip butters melting! The edges had lost shape & there was product on the inside of the tube too. Mind you I didn’t even take them out of the house during this time. So I popped them in the fridge at once, where they’ve remained since. I can’t even imagine how much they’d melt now that it’s so hot. And that’s a double fail for a product like this that needs to be reapplied often.
✔ Very moisturising
✔ Glides on well
✔ Easily available at Revlon counters.
✘ Very low staying power.
Price: ₹600 for 2.55 gms
Will I Repurchase? I have a soft spot for Red Velvet, so maybe (just maybe) I’ll repurchase that one when it’s done. The others? NO WAY.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are mostly sheer, tinted lip balms that melt easily, save for just a couple of more pigmented shades (like Red Velvet & Raspberry Pie). They’re overhyped & definitely not worth the money.
