Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters

it was freezing today... i actually had to wear a jacket while i was riding, which is pretty unusual for me... i'm generally hot all the time! the forecast calls for rain tomorrow, but i hope the weather changes its mind... and if not, i hope it's at least dry enough at the barn for lessons on Wednesday.

today i want to share a review of Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters! these have been getting loads of hype lately, so of course i had to check them out.

this is how they're packaged, no complaints other than it took a few days to get the tops loose enough to be able to be removed easily.

these are pretty moisturizing, even for lips like mine that are always pretty dried out (owing, ironically, to overuse of lip balms!). the consistency is fairly thick, which i like in a lip product. i do wish they were more opaque... but they are actually made to be sheer, so that's just my personal preference. they can be built up nicely, which is how i use them. the very tops of the lids are clear, so you can see the actual product color before you buy it... i would say not to be afraid by how bright/dark they are, as they are pretty sheer which makes them much more wearable on most skin tones! 

here are swatches of the three i picked up... my favorite is Cupcake! Sugar Frosting is pretty close to my natural lip color (which is pretty light) and Creamsicle goes fairly beige on me.

these go for around $8, but drugstores are always running sales like buy one, get one 50% off, and Ulta currently has Revlon buy two get one free!

bottom line... i would repurchase probably all three of these, and i definitely plan on trying out some other colors! let me know if you'd like to swatches of other shades.

Happy Monday! Ria :)
