Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

I think this lip butter is a big leap to my "make-up world" and weirdly, I am raising my hands for that.  Ladies (and gents), the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Fig Jam.

Lip butter?  My body appreciates me for applying body butter so it would be nice if my lips will shout a thank you too to me for using a lip butter.

Revlon says "SHINY COLOR + BUTTERY BALM 94% of women felt lips were softer smoother and instantly hydrated. Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%. Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth.  Sheer to medium colour with buttery shine Available in 20 irresistible shades."

And the claims are true:  it's gives an almost lip gloss shine to my lips, it's buttery and instantly makes lips softer, smoother and hydrated.  Going deeper into the effects, the shine will last around an hour, the smoothness will last around 2 hours and the hydration will start to deteriorate after 3 hours and by this time I can feel some bits of grits forming on my lips much like when butter starts to get "cold" on the lips. By the 4 hour mark it's reapplication time because I just probably had my lunch and the lip butter got wiped off of my lips.  Overall, I think it performs well compared to most lip balms. 

Got to admit , I got intimated with the color when I first open it because it looks super dark like chocolate!

the color

See what I mean?  But when worn, it's actually sheer.  It gives this shadow effect that kind of accentuate the natural color of the lips.  Just think of when you eat or drink chocolate or put a very thin layer of melted chocolate on your lips and it seems that your lips look a bit darker but in a good way.  Most of the time, I think that this lip butter "glamorizes" my lips.

swatch, just 1 swipe on my lips

Love the effect, love the color but hated the packaging.  There are some points that are much appreciated with the packaging like the color of the cap represents the color of the lip butter and the top is also transparent so you can see what's inside and I also like how classy the inside packaging looks like (please look at the first picture, agree with me?) but I actually hate the color of the cap, it looks so old and I hate that the bottom part (where the brand name is located) is so thin that I can't get enough grip and I'm having a hard time pulling the cap so when I'm in a hurry, I always drop this lip butter.

I really like the "inside" packaging though.

fig jam in all it's glory!
Not much of a fan of the outer packaging but overall, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter is a great lip balm butter. Its claims are true and I like how natural and glamorous it looks on my lips.

Thanks for reading. Till then. Bye!


  1. Pretty shade n love the lip swatch..

    My recent one : http://www.cosmochics.com/reviews/inglot-eyeshadow-ds-square-504-review-swatches-eotd/

  2. I love the shade. For me siguro I like it a bit darker pa when applied on the lips. I have two lip butters, and I like using them :)

    1. at first natakot talaga ako kasi lip balm lang gamit ko, pero pag gusto mo mas darker mga 3 swipes ang kelangan. mas moisturizing ang lip butters, sana may transparent na version para mgamit ko before ako matulog :P kaartihan lang ng dry kong lips
