Since then, I have received and purchased a fair amount of different colours from the 20-piece collection. These drugstore gems are hands-down one of my favourite formulas. They're a cross between a lip balm and lipstick. Seriously...if a lip balm and lipstick had a baby, this would be it!
If you haven't tried these lip butters yet, what are you waiting for? Here are some swatches to help you pick a colour:
(From Left to Right: Sugar Frosting, Peach Parfait, Pink Truffle, Strawberry Shortcake, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie, Raspberry Pie, Lollipop, Sugar Plum, Fig Jam, Candy Apple and Red Velvet)
My other favourites and most used include Strawberry Shortcake, a bright "barbie" pink which looks amazing with a tan; and Berry Smoothie, a "my lips but better" medium, natural pink - great for every day!
Each one of these buttery balms contain mango, shea and coconut butter to help hydrate and soften. While I personally reach for these more during summer months, they're also wonderful to help heal dry and cracked lips during winter.
I also really like the packaging of these. Each capsule has a quilted pattern in a colour that matches the bullet inside.
My only complaint is that they have minimal lasting power. While a typical lipstick can last up to four hours on the lips, the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters stick around for a measly two hours (if you're lucky). However, because some lean on the sheer and tinted, side they're easy to re-apply throughout the day. But some are pretty stinking opaque, so be sure to have a mirror on hand with those ones or else you'll end up looking like The Joker...
