Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters (some swatches!)

Since I posted my review of these lovely lip butters, I bought two more! So I thought I should post some swatches so you can see them properly (also, to prove that the three shades I have are actually different- the pictures I've shown before weren't great!)

I have three shades: Cupcake, Strawberry Shortcake and Sweet Tart.




Cupcake is a pale, blue toned pink- basically Barbie pink! It's probably not quite so well pigmented as the other two I have, but I see that as a good thing as if it were opaque I think it would totally wash me out!

Strawberry Shortcake is the first Lip Butter I purchased (and is still my favourite!) It's a slightly warmer (but still on the cooler side) pink, and is a little deeper than cupcake. This is a perfect everyday shade for me, it's bright enough to give my face some colour, but very wearable for me :)

Sweet Tart is the deepest and brightest pink I have- I'd almost describe it as fuchsia (though again, I'm usually a bit scared of bright shades, so I may be overreacting!) but I really love it, it's another cool toned shade and suits my skin tone- this would be perfect for evening-wear, or for days when I can't be bothered with eye make up!






Now for swatches! (In the same order as before- Cupcake, Strawberry Shortcake and Sweet Tart) I hope they do these lovely shades justice :)






Which shades do you prefer?

  1. "I may be overreacting!" ha that made me smile, very funny. Pretty colours, I have two lipbutters and love them but they are quite dark and I worry about them sliding off my face when I am not looking. So I would like to try a lighter one. Strawberry Shortcake looks good. x

    1. Hehe I'm glad :) It's true though, I do tend to think colours are brighter than they actually are because I'm not used to seeing darker/brighter shades on me! :) Strawberry Shortcake is awesome, a great everyday shade! (go out and swatch in in store!)

  2. I like themmm. You should do a nude lip swatch & then swatch them on your lips. I think with lip shades more than anything else, you really need to see how it translates from wrist to lip!

    1. I guess I could, but I don't think I need to- they come out pretty similarly on my lips! :)

  3. LOL, I knew you couldn't stop at just the ones you got before!! The Lip Butters come in such a great range of colours that it's so easy to get a lot of them!

    1. I know! Though I wanted to make absolutely sure that I liked them before buying more than one (I still think they're kinda expensive) I know, I spent ages picking my second two out!

  4. I like the strawberry shortcake the most. I want to get one for myself, but they are not available where I live. I could get them from ebay, but not sure if they are worth it.

    1. Me too! :) Aww that's a shame, yeah I'm not sure it would be worth getting on eBay- I bet the prices will be really high! :(

    1. Aren't they awesome- I think Strawberry Shortcake is most popular (from what I've heard) you should go swatch some more in shops, theres quite a big range of colours :)

  6. I have Tutti Frutti and it's lovely! I need to get more colours but I'm waiting for offers.. I have a feeling I'll be waiting a while haha! I totally recommend Tutti Frutti though, it's scary in the tube but it comes out as a lovely coral colour because it shows your natural lip colour underneath! I think I want Macaroon, Berry Smoothie and Peach Parfait next =) Do you find that the black bit on the tube is a bit small to grip? I managed to smoosh mine as I opened it >.< xx

    1. Fingers crossed there are some deals for you! I'm not sure a coral shade would suit me :( Berry Smoothie sounds lovely though, I think it's another one I considered purchasing. I'm trying not to buy any more of them though...!
